Convert Raw PCM to WAV
What is Raw PCM?
Raw PCM files contains uncompressed pcm audio data only, which means there is no embedded parameters in the file indicating the sample rate, bits per sample, channels, etc. So you will have to know what specs of the PCM file are to start with. You can set those parameters in the "Options" window before playback or conversion. As an alternative, you can also rename a pcm file to make it carry parameters. e.g. rename sample.pcm to sample_[44100_16_2].pcm, Softe Audio Tools will interpret the data as "44100hz 16bit stereo".
What is WAV?
WAV (or WAVE), short for Waveform audio format, is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. Though a WAV file can hold compressed audio (alaw, ulaw, ima adpcm, creative adpcm, microsoft adpcm, mp3 codec etc), the most common WAV format contains uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. The standard audio file format for CDs, for example, is LPCM-encoded, containing two channels of 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample.
