Format SDIF

Sound Interchange Standard Format

This file format standard, independent from computer platforms, extendable and freely accessible, details very precisely the types of audio signal description data and their representation.Once their inputs and outputs conform to the same standard, it enables different pieces of software to communicate immediately.

It also makes the maintenance of data files much easier thanks to annexed information carried in the file and enables pieces of heterogeneous data to co-exist in one file. A library of reading/writing C functions and applications have been developed and licensed in open source.

IRCAM's Teams: Sound Analysis & Synthesis team, Sound Music Movement Interaction team, Music Representations team.
