What is a AIF file?

An AIF file is an audio file created using the Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF). It contains uncompressed CD-quality audio similar to a .WAV file and is commonly used to store standard CD audio.

More Information

Apple Computer developed the AIFF format, basing it on Electronic Arts' .IFF format. Standard AIFF files use a sampling rate of 44.1KHz, are 16-bit, and have two channels for stereo sound.

NOTE: AIFF files also use the extension .AIFF.
