Additional information about FLAC is an audio compression created by members of Xiph.
Description FLAC is a lossless audio compression file created by members of Xiph.org. FLAC allows users to preserve files at the original quality level, which makes it the model software format for backing up audio files since comparable hard copies are vulnerable to physical damage. FLAC is most typically used to backup high quality audio like CD’s its superiority compared to file types like MP3’s. FLAC is an open source software file and supports addition of data integrity checks, metadata, and images.
Technical description FLAC files possess rapid streaming and decoding capabilities due to the fact that they are often less than half the size of the original file and still maintain the original audio quality when used for audio storage. FLAC files are often used for streaming and conversion in real time. The FLAC file arrangement is made up of several parts namely: stream format, container format, reference library of encoders and decoders, and input plugins. FLAC has fixed-point samples support capability with PCM bit resolutions of 4-32 bits per sample, with a sampling rate up to 655,350 Hz, delivered in 1-8 channels. Existing decoders remain unaffected despite addition of new fields, as they are future proofed.

File extension .MP3
File category AUDIO
Additional information about MP3 is a common name for MPEG-1 and MPEG-2. It is an audio coding format for digital audio that uses a form of lossy data compression. It is common for consumer audio storage and streaming.
Description MP3 is a digital music file format that allows CD tracks to be reduced to around a tenth of their original size without any significant quality loss. MP3 gets rid of a lot of information that is recorded in a song which our ears cannot hear and then uses complex algorithms to reduce the file’s size. This enables you to get a lot of songs on a CD. It has also facilitated download over the internet due to the reduced file size
Technical description MP3 format is a lossy format. This means that during the compression, some information is lost. MP3 files use perceptual coding and this means that it removes the information that your ear doesn’t notice. The reason why people use lossy formats over RAW formats is that RAW formats are very larger and cannot travel over the internet at a great speed. Due to its reduced size, MP3 allows users to download files at a reasonable speed.
