Sound Blaster VOC files. VOC files are multi-part and contain silence parts, looping, and different sample rates for different chunks. On input, the silence parts are filled out, loops are rejected, and sample data with a new sample rate is rejected. Silence with a different sample rate is generated appropriately. On output, silence is not detected, nor are impossible sample rates. SoX supports reading (but not writing) VOC files with multiple blocks, and files containing μ-law, A-law, and 2/3/4-bit ADPCM samples.
an audio format from Apple that was developed to remove the limitations of AIFF and WAV formats. This is a container that can store sound encoded by various algorithms and track metadata. Its characteristic feature - the format doesn’t have limitations on file size and so this allows one to store infinitely long recordings.
