WavPack is a completely open audio compression format providing lossless, high-quality lossy, and a unique hybrid compression mode. In the default lossless mode WavPack acts just like a WinZip compressor for audio files. However, unlike MP3 or WMA encoding which can affect the sound quality, not a single bit of the original information is lost.


  • Compatible with virtually all PCM audio formats including 8, 16, 24, and 32-bit ints; 32-bit floats; mono, stereo, and multichannel; sampling rates from 6 to 192 kHz (and non-standard rates)
  • Multiplatform support including Windows, Linux, and OS X, plus a flash decoder that works virtually anywhere
  • Instantly seekable and streaming capable (and gapless)
  • ReplayGain (including WavPack file scanner and compatible plugins)
  • Uses ID3v1 and APEv2 tags for metadata (including ReplayGain)
  • Error-tolerant block format conducive to hardware decoding
  • Optional "asymmetrical" mode for improved compression
  • MD5 audio checksums for verification and identification
  • Unique hybrid mode (provides high quality lossy + "correction" file
  • Dynamic noise shaping (dns) for optimum quality at lower hybrid bitrates
  • Hybrid mode now operates as low as 2.25 bits/sample (or 196 kbps for CD audio)
  • Free and open source with easy to use library interface and unrestrictive license (BSD)
  • Intuitive command line interface (with wildcards and destination directory)
  • Small, efficient executable (no large programs or dlls to install)
  • Special "low latency" version available for custom applications
  • Self-extracting archives with cuesheets (Windows only)
  • Fully backward compatible to WavPack 1.0
  • Java decoder and encoder now available
  • Complete piping support
