What's a AAC File?

AAC, short for Advanced Audio Coding, a lossy audio compression format defined by the MPEG-4 standard, developed by Fraunhofer, but Dolby, Sony and AT&T are also major contributors. AAC is the natural successor of MP3 (MPEG-1/2 Layer 3) , in the new multimedia MPEG-4 standard that is widely used for various media. AAC can include as many as 48 full-bandwidth (up to 96khz) audio channels in one track, plus 15 low-frequency effect channels, up to 15 data streams and more. In fact, AAC's algorithm was completed in 1997, when it was called MPEG-2 AAC. However, as the MPEG-4 audio standard was formed in 2000, MPEG-2 AAC was also used as the core of its encoding technology. At the same time some new encoding features are add, so that it is also called MPEG-4 AAC.

AAC has a higher quality than MP3. The algorithm used by AAC is different from the MP3 algorithm. AAC combines other functions to improve coding efficiency. AAC's audio algorithms greatly exceed the previous compression algorithms (such as MP3). The high frequency part of AAC may not be better than the MP3 of the same frequency in the spectrum, or even worse than the latter. But you can easily find that AAC's signal is significantly denser and thicker than MP3. The actual effect varies from one to another, it's true that AAC is indeed much better than MP3 in term of sound quality and file size. In short, AAC can provide better sound quality and 30% smaller than MP3 files. AAC is well-known for higher compression ratio, multi-channel support, more sample rate, and improved decoding efficiency.

open and edit AAC files

Apple's iTunes uses AAC as their default encoding method for music files. Nintendo DSi and 3DS, PlayStation 3, DivX Plus Web Player, and other devices and platforms also adopt AAC codec, instead of MP3. AAC files may use the .aac file extension but they're more commonly seen wrapped in the M4A file container, and therefore usually have the .m4a file extension. Most multimedia applications allow you to import AAC files, like iTunes, Final Cut Pro, MusicBee, MediaMonkey, iMovie, Movavi Video Editor, Wondershare Filmora, etc.
