What is WAV?

Waveform Audio files are saved with the WAV format. It is a raw format developed by Microsoft and IBM for saving audio files. WAV is a lossless uncompressed audio file format that is used in the Windows operating system to store raw audio. It is compatible with Windows, OS X, and Linux. WAV files are exceptionally large and are also used to store music on CDs. Most music that your rip from a CD will be ripped in WAV format. The Windows Media Player natively supports WMA files. Since the format is compatible across the major desktop, it is used to move audio files between platforms without compromising the quality of the sound.

Apart from storing uncompressed sound, a WAV file can store lots of additional information such as the track or serial number of a sound file, its sample rate, and bit depth. Additionally, a WAV file can process ‘loops’ that allow the file to tell a WAV player to play the music in a loop that does not giveaway when a file starts playing and when it ends making the transition seamless.

Jumpshare supports WAV files and plays them without any loss in sound quality. Simply upload a file and click it to open it in the audio player. Playback can be paused or you can jump to any position on the track using the seek bar. Although the file is processed before it is played, the file you download is the unprocessed version that you originally uploaded.
