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).
