WAV is a small and powerful boy in the area of multimedia. Shall we convert ALAC to WAV?

Glossary:

 

Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE, or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension .m4a. It is not a variant of AAC (which is a lossy format), but a distinct lossless format that uses linear prediction similar to other lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten.All current iPod players can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does not use any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the container, it is thought that DRM could be applied to ALAC much the same way it can with other files in QuickTime containers.

 

WAVE or WAV, short for Waveform Audio File Format,(also, but rarely, named, Audio for Windows) is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is an application of the RIFF bitstream format method for storing data in “chunks”, and thus is also close to the 8SVX and the AIFF format used on Amiga and Macintosh computers, respectively. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The usual bitstream encoding is the Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM) format.
