Description

WavPack is an open audio compression format that supports both lossy and lossless compression. It uses a unique hybrid compression mode that produces a high-quality lossy file along with a "correction" file that can be used to restore the file to its original lossless quality.

Since WavPack is an open format, WV files can be opened by several different audio programs with the WavPack plug-in installed.
