WAV (*.wav) is a widely used lossless audio format developed by Microsoft and IBM. Many music enthusiasts like to store songs in WAV formats.

The problem they are facing now is that they lack a feasible method to convert Apple Music to WAV format.

What You Need to Know about WAV Audio Format

WAV is most popular uncompress audio format. An uncompressed file means that it's the original data. The advantage is data accuracy and excellent compatibility. However, it also has the disadvantage that the file size is large, and a 1-minute audio file uses about 10MB. "WAV" and "AIFF" are commonly used. It is common to use "WAV" on Windows and "AIFF" on macOS. In fact, WAV is also widely used in macOS. And because of higher market share of Windows, WAV is much more popular than AIFF even on macOS.

Some music enthusiasts who love to enjoy high-quality music also love to get their music in WAV format. In the past few years, more and more music users buy and download music from online stores, and the sales of Audio CDs are also getting less and less. It is also inconvenient to play CDs since more and more computers are not equipped with a CD/DVD drive. So many users also rip CD and save as WAV files on computer. Because this is a lossless conversion, the WAV format has the same sound quality as a CD.

WAV comes with high compatibility. It's comaptible with Windows, macOS, and Linux, and it can be played with all kinds of media players like VLC media player, Foobar, MediaMonkey, KMPlayer, etc. WAV can be played on iPhone, iPad, Android devices, PS3/4/5, Sony Walkman, Xbox 360/One and all kinds of smart devices. Most MP3 players including iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, Sandisk Clip Jam, Apetek and more can play WAV files as well. WAV format is also widely supported by video editing programs and apps.

Apple Music have released Apple Music Lossless some time ago. However, like Apple Music AAC audio, Apple Music lossless audio is still protected. On macOS, if you download Apple Music songs in lossless or hi-res lossless quality, you will get *.movpkg files. The file size of a *.movpkg file is much bigger than a *.m4p file. However, because of the protection, you won't be able to enjoy or use Apple Music lossless on many devices. That is why many users want to convert Apple Music to WAV files.

Should You Use MP3 or WAV as Background Music When Editing Videos?

TuneMobie Apple Music Converter can convert Apple Music to WAV, MP3 and some other formats. If your purpose of converting Apple Music songs is to use as background music, you may wonder whether MP3 or WAV should be used. We have introduced WAV above, so we will introduce MP3 in brief as well.

MP3 is a lossy compressed WAV file. Lossy compression can greatly compress the data volume, but the compressed data cannot be restored to the original data even if it is decompressed. You have to be careful with the conversion, as it degrades the data in such a way. It eliminates sounds that cannot be heard by humans, and at the same time, compresses the data volume to about 1/11 while maintaining the same sound quality as a music CD. The main difference between WAV and MP3 is whether they are compressed or not.


So, when editing videos or shooting videos, which one is better, WAV or MP3?

When shooting a video, it is recommended to record the sound in WAV with good sound quality from the beginning. If you feel that the file size is large and the editing software starts up slowly when editing the video, it is easy to compress it to MP3. In fact, such a case is rare. However, converting audio recorded in MP3 to WAV does not necessarily improve the sound quality.

But there are also special cases. For example, if you are editing a short video to upload to Twitter, Instagram, etc., MP3 is sufficient for the recording format when shooting. This is because even if you upload a high-quality video to Twitter, Twitter will automatically re-encode it to a smaller size. If you want to create high-quality video for DVD or Blu-ray, or you want to upload 1080P or 4K videos to YouTube or other video sharing websites, etc., we recommend using audio recorded in WAV.
