Mass Effect 2 Audio File (.AFC)

AFC (Mass Effect Audio File Container) is an audio container format developed by Canadian video game development company BioWare for their Mass Effect science fiction video game series based on the Unreal 3 Engine.
Being a container format, an AFC file can contain one or multiple audio streams. The audio data stored in AFC files may represent either speech, background music and/or sound effects used in the game.
In its essence, an AFC file is just a regular OGG file with audio data encoded as RIFF WAVE via the WaveWorks Interactive Sound Engine (Wwise). The only thing that makes AFC files different from regular OGG files is the file header, which is slightly different.
AFC files usually have a sampling rate of about 32000Hz at a variable bit rate (VBR) ranging from 75 to about 105kbps. There are currently no desktop media players that provide AFC playback natively. However, there is a good number of independently developed AFC conversion tools such as afc2ogg or the Gibbed Mass Effect 3 Audio Extractor, which allow users to easily convert AFC files to OGG and play them back in any OGG-compatible desktop media player.

Audio Interchange File (.AIF)

The .AIF file format is used on computers and other electronic audio devices. The format is uncompressed and lossless (no reduction in quality) and because of this, is popular with professional audio/video applications - in particular those on the Apple Macintosh operating system.
The format has now been superseded by the .AIFF format.
The .AIF audio format produces files much larger than other formats, so is not suited for transferring across the internet.
The compressed equivalent of this format uses the .AIFC file extension.
The actual format was based on the Amiga's IFF format, and was co-developed by Apple.
