NOTE
BWF is a format created for broadcasting that has the same
sound quality as the standard WAV format. It also uses the
same “.wav” file extension as WAV files. In this manual, we
distinguish these file types by using the terms BWF and WAV.
WAV/BWF files are higher quality than MP3 files.
MP3 files allow for longer recordings than WAV/BWF files.
Higher values for MP3 files provide better recording quality.
