Unlike other competitors, not only the Visual MP3 To Wav Converter supports the Normal Wave format (Microsoft PCM Wav), but also 10 different compressed Wav formats, including Microsoft ADPCM and Compressed CD-Quality music format. You can never find all of these formats in our competitors' products.

Format Description

Microsoft PCM Standard Windows WAV format for non-compressed audio files. PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is the standard method of digitally encoding audio. It is the basic uncompressed data format used in file types such as Windows .wav.
Microsoft ADPCM Compressed WAV format. ADPCM (Adaptive Differential Pulse Code Modulation) is an audio compression scheme which compresses from 16-bit to 4-bit for a 4:1 compression ratio.
NCT ALF2CD Compressed WAV format. ACM codec developed by the NCT Company. Good for keeping of CD-quality music.
DSP Compressed WAV format. DSP Group True Speech (TM) format.
GSM Compressed WAV format. Good for keeping of human speech.
VOX Dialogic ADPCM Dialogic ADPCM format. The Dialogic ADPCM format is commonly found in telephony applications, and has been optimized for low sample rate voice. It will only save mono 16-bit audio, and like other ADPCM formats, it compresses to 4-bits/sample (for a 4:1 ratio).
ALAW Compressed WAV format. A-Law (or CCITT standard G.711) is an audio compression scheme common in telephony applications. It is a slight variation of the u-Law compression format, and is found in European systems. This encoding format compresses original 16-bit audio down to 8 bits (for a 2:1 compression ratio) with a dynamic range of about 13-bits. Thus, a-law encoded waveforms have a higher s/n ratio than 8-bit PCM, but at the price of a bit more distortion than the original 16-bit audio. The quality is higher than you would get with 4-bit ADPCM formats. Encoding and decoding is rather fast and generally, widely supported.
ULAW Compressed WAV format. U-Law (or CCITT standard G.711) is an audio compression scheme and international standard in telephony applications. u-Law is very similar to A-Law, a variation of u-Law found in European systems. This encoding format compresses original 16-bit audio down to 8 bits (for a 2:1 compression ratio) with a dynamic range of about 13-bits. Thus, u-Law encoded waveforms have a higher s/n ratio than 8-bit PCM, but at the price of a bit more distortion than the original 16-bit audio. The quality is higher than you would get with 4-bit ADPCM formats. Encoding and decoding is rather fast and generally, widely supported.
G.721 Used for computer telephony. Good for keeping of human speech.
G.723 Used for computer telephony. Good for keeping of human speech.
G.726 Used for computer telephony. Good for keeping of human speech.
