Au file format

The Au file format is a simple audio file format introduced by Sun Microsystems. The format was common on early Web pages, it was headerless, being 8-bit μ-law-encoded data at an 8000 Hz sample rate. Hardware from other vendors used sample rates as high as 8192 Hz integer multiples of video clock signal frequencies. Newer files have a header that consists of six unsigned 32-bit words, an optional information chunk and the data. Although the format now supports many audio encoding formats, it remains associated with the μ-law logarithmic encoding; this encoding was native to the SPARCstation 1 hardware, where SunOS exposed the encoding to application programs through the /dev/audio interface. This encoding and interface became a de facto standard for Unix sound. All fields are stored including the sample data; the type of encoding depends on the value of the "encoding" field. Formats 2 through 7 are uncompressed linear PCM, therefore technically lossless. Formats 1 and 27 are μ-law and A-law both companding logarithmic representations of PCM, arguably lossy as they pack what would otherwise be 16 bits of dynamic range into 8 bits of encoded data though this is achieved by an altered dynamic response and no data is "thrown away".

Formats 23 through 26 are ADPCM, an early form of lossy compression but not always with 4 bits of encoded data per audio sample. Several of the others are DSP commands or data, designed to be processed by the NeXT Music Kit software. Note: PCM formats are encoded as signed data. Following the header structure is a variable-length annotation field; the contents of this field are undefined, except that its length must be a multiple of eight bytes and it must be terminated with at least one null byte. The audio data segment begins on an eight-byte boundary following the annotation field. Audio data is encoded in the format identified by the file header; the current implementation supports only a single audio data segment per file. The variable-length annotation field is ignored by most audio applications. Sample. AU file Sun.au sound file format Audio File Format Specifications
