What is a WAV file?

WAV files are audio files saved in the ‘Waveform Audio File Format,’ a highly standardized digital audio format created by Microsoft and IBM. It is the most popular way of storing audio waveform data on computers. WAV files can be saved with different sampling and bitrates. WAV files usually contain raw, uncompressed audio data and their file sizes can be quite large. It is normally saved for CD quality audio with 44.1 KHz, 16-bit, stereo format. WAV files are similar to .AIF files, but they are based on the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF), rather than the Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF). Hence, WAV files are more popular on the Windows platform while AIF files are more popular on MacOS systems.
