What is audio

There are uncompressed audio formats (for example, WAV, AIFF), but for more convenient storage / distribution, codecs are often used that compress audio data. Compression of data (data compression) is performed in order to reduce the volume occupied by files and is based on eliminating the redundancy contained in the original data. Digital music is most often served to us - through media stores and streaming services - in formats that use lossy compression. To compress the file - to make it smaller - the data is extracted from the original and can never be recovered. This data is not accidentally deleted. Using psychoacoustics file formats to get around the limitations of human hearing by removing things we didn't even know were there.

How audio compression works

Lossy compression means that we have lost some of the information in the process. Lossy compression algorithms try to make sure that we only lose data that is not too important to us. Lossless compression is when we reduce the file size without losing quality. For this, interesting mathematical techniques and coding are used. The main idea is that during decoding, all data remains in place. Audio compression is a processing process designed to reduce the dynamic range of a signal (the difference between the quietest and loudest sounds). The word Lossy is used in digital audio to describe the type of compression used to store audio data. The algorithm used in the lossy audio format compresses the audio data in such a way that some information is discarded. This loss of signal means that the encoded sound is not identical to the original.
