How to Convert an AIFF to a WAV

The AIFF file extension corresponds to the Audio Interchange File Format. AIFF files contain lossless audio content and appear often as the standard CD-burning format. They are quite similar to WAV or Waveform audio files, as both are used during the audio recording process, but certain programs prefer WAVs to AIFFs. Tools available for free on the Web can convert your AIFFs into WAV files.
