Audio Converter

An audio converter is a device or software that converts an audio signal from one format to another.

Hardware audio converters include analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), which convert analog audio to uncompressed digital form (e.g., PCM), and their reciprocal partners, digital to analog converters (DACs), which convert uncompressed digital audio to analog form. ADCs and DACs are usually components of hardware products. For example, sound cards and capture cards both include ADCs to allow a computer to record audio. Sound cards also feature DACs for audio playback.

Some audio conversion functions can be performed by software or by specialized hardware. For example, an audio transcoder converts from one compressed audio format to another (e.g., MP3 to AAC) by means of two audio codecs: One for decoding (uncompressing) the source and one for encoding (compressing) the destination file or stream.

WAV to MP3

WAV

WAV is an audio file that is associated with Microsoft Windows. It is the default audio format for Windows. But it supports almost all the Operating Systems. WAV files are comparatively larger than MP3 files. It is mostly used to create music files in audio cd. It can save music files at different bit rates.

The WAV Audio file format

WAV (WAVE) files were created by IMB and Microsoft. They contain sounds such as effects, music, and voice recordings. Multimedia playback programs (Windows Media Player, QuickTime, etc) are capable of opening and playing WAV files. The files are larger than MP3 files, therefore they are not as popular as their smaller, more portable counterparts. What differntiates WAV from MP3 and MP4 files is the lossless compression. Those larger files are of a higher quality, and the reason for their less frequent usage is due to the file size. Sending and downloading of the files takes much more time and space.

Technical details of WAV files

WAV files are an application of the Resource Interchange File Format method for storing data. Data is stored in chunks which contain a four character tag and the number of bytes in the chunk. This allows the format to be extended with ease lateron. The Mac equivalent is the AIFF format. WAV files can take 8 to 16-bit samples at rates between 11,025 Hz to 44,100 HZ. 16-bit at 44,100 Hz is the highest quality possible, and this is also the sampling rate of CD’s, using 88 KB/second of storage. Bitstream encoding usually utilizes the linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format. The system sounds on Windows (startup, clicking, errors, shutdown, etc) are uncompressed WAV files.

MP3

MP3 is an audio format that can compress and encode an audio file. It uses the lossy compression algorithm to contain audio data. The lossy compression helps to reduce the data significantly without losing audio quality. MP3s are created using different bit rates maintaining the original quality.

The MP3 Audio file format

A MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III files (file extension name: MP3) is the standard audio storage file type. Most music players (and smart phones) play music using MP3 files. The lossy compression reduces the quality without straying tremendously from the original, uncompressed recording. This is done by removing those sounds the human ear is incapable of hearing and processing. MP3 files are great for portability since tracks with the CD quality are taken to the smaller MP3 file. Thus, after compression, more files can fit on a single disk than the original release, decreasing upload and download time of audio files regardless of connection speed.

Technical details of MP3 files

Using lossy data compression, audio files are compressed for easy storage and sending. It was preceded by the MPEG-1 file type but continued into a new category (MPEG-2 Audio Layer III). Unlike MPEG-1 files an MP3 file stores audio information only. Any images associated with the audio (as seen on iPods and smart phones) need to be stored in a different file. MP3 files are reduced to 128kbit/s at a ratio of 11:1 from the original recording. Accuracy of the sounds is decreased in such that the changes are in the areas outside the perception of most human ears (audio masking), leaving the important information, and resulting a much smaller file size. There are ways to reduce the file size even further but it decreases the audio quality to a much higher degree.

OGG

Ogg is a free open video format file which is designed to provide efficient streaming and manipulation of high quality digital multimedia. The Ogg file is similar to an MP3 file, but has better sound quality than an MP3 file of same size. It can include song metadata, such as artist information and track data, and is supported by many media players and some portable music players.

The OGG Audio file format

OGG is a free, open container format created under unrestricted software patents by the Xiph.Org Foundation (Ogg Vorbis). It allows users to stream and alter high quality digital multimedia files. The name “Ogg” derives from the jargon word “ogging.” Ogging refers to the killing of a carrier by a suicide run in the game Netrek. Apple does not support OGG file formats, and the presence of more common and widely compatible formats like MP3 mean the OGG file is not that frequently distributed in the digital media world. The OGG extension was formerly used to classify any file which used the OGG container format, but after 2007 it began being used solely for the Ogg Vorbis audio files.

Technical details of OGG files

The OGG extension refers to the audio, but it can also refer to a container file. OGG file containers can allow different streams of audio and metadata. The compression provides medium to high quality ranging from 16-128 kbps (comparable to MP3 and other audio file formats). The lossy codec discards certain parts of the file to reduce size. The OGG file container is currently available for audio files, but is planned to be capable of utilizing speech files as well. Various free media players, GPS receivers, and a number of portable media players can play OGG files due to the open source content. OGG containers are capable of encoding audio, video, and other codes within the file.

AAC

AAC is an audio file format that works similar to MP3 but compresses more than MP3. It significantly reduces the audio file size without losing the quality. To reduce the file size it uses the MPEG-4 standard to cut off the low frequency sounds that cannot be heard in a human’s ear.

The AAC Audio file format

AAC files were designed with the intention of replacing MP3’s. The lossy compression provides better audio quality at similar bit rates. AAC files are standardized by the ISO/IEC as part of the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 families though it was first introduced into the MPEG-2 Part 7 family. AAC files contain more sample frequencies than MP3’s, as well as up to 48 channels, higher efficiency of coding and filter banks, and higher coding accuracy for transient signals. Much like MP3 files, AAC files remove audio at frequencies the human ear cannot process to create smaller and more manageable files. The file size is significantly smaller with AAC files compared to MP3 files.

Technical details of AAC files

The MPEG-2 part 7 is defined with three profiles: Low Complexity (AAC-LC), Main profile (AAC Main), and Scalable Sampling Rate profile (AAC-SSR). AAC files allows temporal noise shaping, a non-uniform quantizer, and reworking of bitstream format (for 16 stereo channels, 16 mono channels, 16 low-frequency channels, and 16 commentary channels in a single bitstream). In 1999, the MPEG-2 part 7 was included in the MPEG-4 Part 3. This added Audio Object Types and Perceptual Noise Substitution. The current AAC standard is specified in ISO/IEC standard 14496-3. Audio masking is used in the lossy compression of the audio to discard of unneeded data while retaining quality.

WMA

WMA is a proprietary audio container format of Microsoft. There are 4 codec used in WMA – WMA, WMA Professional, WMA Lossless and WMA Voice. It uses one of the four WMA codec to encode audio. WMA contains the audio file in Advanced Systems Format (ASF) format. The ASF file decides how the metadata will be encoded.

The WMA Audio file format

After development, the WMA style of audio compression was released commercially in 1999 by the Signal Processing Group at Microsoft. Windows Media Player supports the playback of WMA files but the ability to create files with this extension was unavailable until Windows Media Player 7. This file type was designed to compete with the very popular MP3 and RealAudio file formats. Success came from to the popularity of WMA files for use with the playback of videos on DVD players as well as the video playback features on the mobile/portable devices for Playstation and Nokia. WMA files are usually lossy, but some forms allow lossless compression as well.

Technical details of WMA files

WMA refers to both the audio file format and the audio codecs. It consists of four codes. WMA: compete with MP3/RealAudio. WMA Pro: multichannel and high resolution audio. WMA Lossless: unlike the other codes, this one compresses audio without sacrificing quality. WMA Voice: compresses voice content using a low bit rate. Microsoft claims the 64 kbit/s size offers quality nearing that of CD’s, though this was discredited by audiophiles. WMA files are usually contained in the Advanced Systems Format which contains digital audio and video. WMA is capable of audio up to 48 kHz with a maximum of stereo audio channels. In WMA 9.1, Microsoft added low-delay audio, reducing the latency in coding.

Much like MP3 files, AAC files remove audio at frequencies the human ear cannot process to create smaller and more manageable files. The file size is significantly smaller with AAC files compared to MP3 files.

Technical details of AAC files

The MPEG-2 part 7 is defined with three profiles: Low Complexity (AAC-LC), Main profile (AAC Main), and Scalable Sampling Rate profile (AAC-SSR). AAC files allows temporal noise shaping, a non-uniform quantizer, and reworking of bitstream format (for 16 stereo channels, 16 mono channels, 16 low-frequency channels, and 16 commentary channels in a single bitstream). In 1999, the MPEG-2 part 7 was included in the MPEG-4 Part 3. This added Audio Object Types and Perceptual Noise Substitution. The current AAC standard is specified in ISO/IEC standard 14496-3. Audio masking is used in the lossy compression of the audio to discard of unneeded data while retaining quality.

OGG to WMA

OGG

Ogg is a free open video format file which is designed to provide efficient streaming and manipulation of high quality digital multimedia. The Ogg file is similar to an MP3 file, but has better sound quality than an MP3 file of same size. It can include song metadata, such as artist information and track data, and is supported by many media players and some portable music players.

The OGG Audio file format

OGG is a free, open container format created under unrestricted software patents by the Xiph.Org Foundation (Ogg Vorbis). It allows users to stream and alter high quality digital multimedia files. The name “Ogg” derives from the jargon word “ogging.” Ogging refers to the killing of a carrier by a suicide run in the game Netrek. Apple does not support OGG file formats, and the presence of more common and widely compatible formats like MP3 mean the OGG file is not that frequently distributed in the digital media world. The OGG extension was formerly used to classify any file which used the OGG container format, but after 2007 it began being used solely for the Ogg Vorbis audio files.

Technical details of OGG files

The OGG extension refers to the audio, but it can also refer to a container file. OGG file containers can allow different streams of audio and metadata. The compression provides medium to high quality ranging from 16-128 kbps (comparable to MP3 and other audio file formats). The lossy codec discards certain parts of the file to reduce size. The OGG file container is currently available for audio files, but is planned to be capable of utilizing speech files as well. Various free media players, GPS receivers, and a number of portable media players can play OGG files due to the open source content. OGG containers are capable of encoding audio, video, and other codes within the file.

WMA

WMA is a proprietary audio container format of Microsoft. There are 4 codec used in WMA – WMA, WMA Professional, WMA Lossless and WMA Voice. It uses one of the four WMA codec to encode audio. WMA contains the audio file in Advanced Systems Format (ASF) format. The ASF file decides how the metadata will be encoded.

The WMA Audio file format

After development, the WMA style of audio compression was released commercially in 1999 by the Signal Processing Group at Microsoft. Windows Media Player supports the playback of WMA files but the ability to create files with this extension was unavailable until Windows Media Player 7. This file type was designed to compete with the very popular MP3 and RealAudio file formats. Success came from to the popularity of WMA files for use with the playback of videos on DVD players as well as the video playback features on the mobile/portable devices for Playstation and Nokia. WMA files are usually lossy, but some forms allow lossless compression as well.

Technical details of WMA files

WMA refers to both the audio file format and the audio codecs. It consists of four codes. WMA: compete with MP3/RealAudio. WMA Pro: multichannel and high resolution audio. WMA Lossless: unlike the other codes, this one compresses audio without sacrificing quality. WMA Voice: compresses voice content using a low bit rate. Microsoft claims the 64 kbit/s size offers quality nearing that of CD’s, though this was discredited by audiophiles. WMA files are usually contained in the Advanced Systems Format which contains digital audio and video. WMA is capable of audio up to 48 kHz with a maximum of stereo audio channels. In WMA 9.1, Microsoft added low-delay audio, reducing the latency in coding.

AAC to MP3

AAC

AAC is an audio file format that works similar to MP3 but compresses more than MP3. It significantly reduces the audio file size without losing the quality. To reduce the file size it uses the MPEG-4 standard to cut off the low frequency sounds that cannot be heard in a human’s ear.

The AAC Audio file format

AAC files were designed with the intention of replacing MP3’s. The lossy compression provides better audio quality at similar bit rates. AAC files are standardized by the ISO/IEC as part of the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 families though it was first introduced into the MPEG-2 Part 7 family. AAC files contain more sample frequencies than MP3’s, as well as up to 48 channels, higher efficiency of coding and filter banks, and higher coding accuracy for transient signals.

Audio masking is used in the lossy compression of the audio to discard of unneeded data while retaining quality.

MP3

MP3 is an audio format that can compress and encode an audio file. It uses the lossy compression algorithm to contain audio data. The lossy compression helps to reduce the data significantly without losing audio quality. MP3s are created using different bit rates maintaining the original quality.

The MP3 Audio file format

A MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III files (file extension name: MP3) is the standard audio storage file type. Most music players (and smart phones) play music using MP3 files. The lossy compression reduces the quality without straying tremendously from the original, uncompressed recording. This is done by removing those sounds the human ear is incapable of hearing and processing. MP3 files are great for portability since tracks with the CD quality are taken to the smaller MP3 file. Thus, after compression, more files can fit on a single disk than the original release, decreasing upload and download time of audio files regardless of connection speed.

Technical details of MP3 files

Using lossy data compression, audio files are compressed for easy storage and sending. It was preceded by the MPEG-1 file type but continued into a new category (MPEG-2 Audio Layer III). Unlike MPEG-1 files an MP3 file stores audio information only. Any images associated with the audio (as seen on iPods and smart phones) need to be stored in a different file. MP3 files are reduced to 128kbit/s at a ratio of 11:1 from the original recording. Accuracy of the sounds is decreased in such that the changes are in the areas outside the perception of most human ears (audio masking), leaving the important information, and resulting a much smaller file size. There are ways to reduce the file size even further but it decreases the audio quality to a much higher degree.
