Defining Term

WavPack (WV)



Description

WavPack is a free, open source lossless audio compression format developed by David Bryant.



Defined As

WavPack compression (.WV files) can compress (and restore) 8-, 16-, 24-, and 32-bit floating point audio files in the .WAV file format. It also supports surround sound streams and high frequency sampling rates.

Like other lossless compression schemes, the data reduction rate varies with the source, but it is generally between 30% and 70% for typical popular music and somewhat better than that for classical music and other sources with greater dynamic range.
