How to Losslessly Rip Apple Music Audio to AAC
Recently "The MP3 Is Officially Dead, According To Its Creators" news is widely talked about. The creators of the MP3 have just put an end to the revolutionary digital audio coding format. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, in Germany, said that they ended the licensing program of the MP3.
Most people want to know, which audio format can take place of MP3 and with better quality.
The MPEG-1 or MP3 is an audio coding format for digital audio. It was launched on the market in 1993, and it was a revolution in the way people listen to music. The Fraunhofer Institute which funded the development of the audio format has recently announced that they are putting an end to the licensing program for MP3, meaning that this is the official end of the MP3.
"Although there are more efficient audio codecs with advanced features available today, mp3 is still very popular amongst consumers. However, most state-of-the-art media services such as streaming or TV and radio broadcasting use modern ISO-MPEG codecs such as the AAC family or in the future MPEG-H. Those can deliver more features and higher audio quality at much lower bitrates compared to MP3" announced the Fraunhofer institute.
That is to say, after MP3, AAC will be the king of Audio format, with better audio quality and much lower bitrates than MP3.
