Could someone provide any logical reasons why one would use AIFF over
WAV as the digital master preservation file format? (leaving compressed
variants of AIFF off the table for this discussion). I have a client
that has asked for AIFF format masters instead of WAV. I'm not sure if
this is actually best for them but I don't digitize to AIFF format files
- I have always digitized to WAV format.
Since AIFF format was developed by Apple a while back - is it still
considered a proprietary format?
What happens if you capture to WAV then save the file off as AIFF or the
opposite, is there anything lost or changed in the audio file or with
the attached metadata?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts/input.
