Supports a variety of audio codecs, including lossless uncompressed PCM, -law, a-law, and ADPCM voice compression.
Sometimes referred to as -law format or Unix Audio Format.
The -law algorithm is a standard method for compressing the dynamic range of a signal.
SND is an acronym derived from Sound.
Binary file format.
Supports various sampling frequencies and an arbitrary number of channels.
