What is WAV

The WAV format was originally used by Windows to store digital audio data. It is the most famous and widely supported format due to the popularity of the Windows platform and the large number of programs written for it. Almost any modern audio program can read or write the WAV format, so this format is very interesting for software developers. A WAV file is an audio recording saved in the standard Waveform Audio File Format. The format is most often used in Microsoft Windows operating systems and is used to store uncompressed audio in its original recording quality, although it can also contain audio compressed using various codecs. Audio CDs typically contain WAV music files in 16-bit stereo format at 44100 Hz.

How WAV compression works

The WAV file format is a format for storing digitized audio signal data. It supports many bit resolutions, sample rates and audio channels. Although a WAV file can contain compressed audio, its most common use is to store uncompressed audio in linear PCM format. The standard Audio-CD format, for example, is LPCM audio, with 2 channels, 44 100 Hz sampling rate and 16 bits per sample. Since the LPCM format stores uncompressed audio that is exactly the same as the original, it allows professional users and audio experts to use it for maximum sound quality. The choice of audio format is formed mainly on the basis of several main points: weight, quality and personal preference. Plus, music playback devices also dictate their requirements.
