aiff to mp3

Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF), a common format for storing and transmitting sampled sound. The format was developed by Apple Computer and is the standard audio format for Macintosh computers. It's not very popular on Windows and should be converted before playback to standard MP3 or WAV file. Moreover, AIFF format does not support data compression so AIFF files tend to be large, but in MP3 format it become much more smaller.

It should be noted that there is also a compressed version of AIFF, known as AIFF-C or AIFC, with various compression codecs. Sometimes the compressed file has the .aiff extension by mistake and this causes problems with decoding. The codecs used by AIFC are common on MacOS, but not supported on Windows. Thus, to convert AIFF correctly it is necessary to support not only PCM, but also G.711 and Mace codecs.

Out of dozens of AIFF converters, Audio Converter Plus was the only one that could decode all the test files. Let's take a closer look at it. The interface looks minimalistic, but the most important thing is hidden under the hood. The 32-bit engine with multithreading support is a strong argument. It is important that the converter successfully reads metadata from AIFF files and saves them in ID3v2 format. With Audio Converter Plus in hand, you can convert almost all popular audio formats to any music file, especially the conversion from AIFF to MP3.
