¿WAV MP3? ¿Mejor formato de audio para video?

A la hora de elegir el mejor formato de audio para vídeo, a pesar de que existen más códecs de audio, siempre llegamos a la misma comparación entre WAV y MP3.

Los geeks te dirán que el formato WAV tiene mejor calidad de audio (realmente la tiene). Sin embargo, por otro lado, la gente práctica dirá que no hay diferencia (aunque la hay) y es más liviano.

Entonces, podemos definir este debate como una lucha interminable entre la calidad del audio y el tamaño del archivo.

Pero, en resumen:

  • WAV tiene mucha mejor calidad, pero los archivos son enormes. Además, tiene menor compatibilidad en general.
  • Los archivos MP3 son muy pequeños, pero tienen una calidad mucho menor. Tienen mayor compatibilidad en general.

Así que, creemos que no hay una respuesta definitiva, especialmente hoy en día. Pero, pensamos que la mejor opción es simplemente la que más te acomoda en términos de calidad y peso del archivo.

Para profundizar más en esto del WAV o MP3, hablaremos de los principales factores que definen la mejor opción para cualquier caso. Así, podrás elegir el formato de audio que necesites.

Lo primero que hay que comprobar es:

Relación de compresión de audio.

La relación de compresión de audio en formatos de audio digital define la cantidad de información de sonido por segundo. Esto significa que cuanta más información por segundo, mejor será la calidad del audio. Sin embargo, implica que el archivo es más grande.

Esta relación de compresión se mide a través de algo llamado “tasa de bits”. Se define por la cantidad de kilobits por segundo (Kbps). Por lo tanto, más kbps significa una mayor calidad de audio pero un mayor tamaño de archivo.

Cada códec de audio tiene su propia relación de compresión. Aquí hay una lista con los más populares:

  • MP3: 128 a 320 kbps
  • WAV: 1,411 kbps
  • FLAC: 1,411 kbps
  • AAC: 264 kbps

Otro aspecto esencial a tener en cuenta, es:

Compatibilidad con códecs de audio

Como sabes, algunos tipos de archivos son más utilizados que otros. Por lo tanto, siempre hay un “estándar de la industria” que beneficia el uso de códecs específicos sobre otros.

En este caso, los archivos WAV y MP3 son los más utilizados en la industria por una serie de factores. Pero principalmente, su popularidad se debe a que son los que llevan más tiempo en la industria. Por lo tanto, la mayoría de las plataformas y equipos están hechos para admitir estos formatos en lugar de otros.

Por lo tanto, es difícil imaginar el uso de un códec de audio para video que no sea MP3, simplemente porque es el más popular y eficiente.

La calidad no es el único factor a revisar al elegir un códec de audio para tu video. La compatibilidad es un factor esencial para definir cuál te conviene más.

Por lo tanto, es mucho más probable que encuentres plataformas que usen MP3 en lugar de WAV. Al igual que Youtube, las redes sociales, etc.

De todos modos, siempre hay un factor nuevo para definir qué códec te conviene más, así que te animamos a que los compares y nos cuentes qué te parece.

Pero queremos que recuerdes que:

  • WAV tiene mucha mejor calidad, pero los archivos son enormes. Menor compatibilidad en general.
  • Los archivos MP3 son muy pequeños, pero tienen una calidad mucho menor. Mayor compatibilidad en general.

En nuestro caso, todas nuestras canciones Libres de Derechos vienen en versión WAV y MP3, por lo que puedes elegir entre las dos en todos los casos.

WAV MP3? Best Audio Format for Video?

When it comes to choosing the best audio format for video and, despite that there are more audio codecs, we always come to the same comparison between WAV and MP3.

Geeks will tell you that the WAV format has better audio quality (really has it). But, on the other hand, practical people will say that there’s no difference (although there is) and is smaller.

So, we can define this debate as an endless struggle between audio quality and file size.

But, in summary:

  • WAV has much better quality, but files are huge. Lower compatibility in general.
  • MP3 files are very little, but has a much lower quality. Higher compatibility in general.

So, there’s no definitive answer, especially nowadays. But, we think that the best option is simply which suits you best in terms of audio quality and file size.

To dive further in this WAV MP3 thing, we’ll talk about the main factors that define the best option for any case. Thus, you’ll be able choose the audio format that you need.

The first thing to check is:

Audio Compression Ratio.

The audio compression ratio in digital audio formats, defines the amount of sound information per second. This means that the more information per second, the better the audio quality. However, it implies that the file is bigger.

This compression ratio is measured through something called “bit rate”. It’s defined by the amount of kilobits per second (Kbps). So,more kbps means higher audio quality but higher file size.

Every audio codec has its own compression ratio. Here’s a list with the most popular ones:

  • MP3: 128 to 320 kbps
  • WAV: 1,411 kbps
  • FLAC: 1,411 kbps
  • AAC: 264 kbps

Another essential aspect to keep in mind, is:

2. Audio Codec Compatibility

As you know, some types of files are more used than others. So, there’s always a “industry standard” that benefits the usage of specific codecs over others.

In this case, WAV and MP3 files are the most used in the industry by a series of factors. Mainly, their popularity is due to the fact that they are the ones who have been in the industry the longest. So, most of the platforms and gear are made to support these formats over than others.

Therefore, it is difficult to imagine using an audio codec for video other than MP3, simply because it is the most popular and efficient.

Quality is not the only factor to revise when choosing an audio codec for your video. Compatibility is an essencial factor to define which one suits you best.

So, you are much more likely to find platforms that use MP3 rather than WAV. Just like Youtube, Social Media, etc.

Anyways, there’s always a new factor to define which codec suits you best, so we encourage you to compare them and tell us what you think.

But we want you to remember that:

  • WAV has much better quality, but files are huge. Lower compatibility in general.
  • MP3 files are very little, but has a much lower quality. Higher compatibility in general.

In our case, all our Royalty Free Tracks come with WAV and MP3 version, so you can choose between the two in all cases.

how to choose music for video

How to Choose Music For Your Video

As a lot of filmmakers, editors and content creators say, music is the half of any audiovisual piece. This means, that if music the fails, everything does too!

Music plays a crucial role in any video, film, advertisement, etc. Because music is not only meant to follow a video, it’s also an statement as well. It can create new narratives, feelings and ideas that cannot be said by words. Also, it’s a vital resource to get the audience’s attention and a potent vehicle to communicate any message.

Let’s get started!

1.- What’s the goal of your Video?

As you know, every scene has its own message that you must communicate. So, your primary message should determinate the execution and the elements present in the scene.

For instance, if you are creating a product activation commercial, its goal should be to be captivating and easy to understand. Thus, you should be able to communicate its atributtes in no more than 5 seconds through a great hook.

So you’ll probably need a catchy song with a short intro and a powerful climax.

In this case, we recommend music from our Cinematic genres like: Action, Adventure, Chase, Epic, Spaguetti Western, between others.

On the other hand, if you need to stir your audience with a progressive visual structure, your song should be as well. Thus, you’ll be able to communicate the message using the right emotional style.

So, you’ll probably need a song with a long intro and an emotional climax.

In this case, we recommend music from our Cinematic genres like: Build, Documentary, Drama, Mystery, Nostalgia, between others.

2.- Which is the tone of your video?

There are different music moods that fits better with certain narration styles.

For instance, if you want to approach to your audience in a formal way, you should look for a song that reflects that type of speech. A great guide for this, is the use of archetypes.

For more information, we recommend you this Audiolander’s article related to the use of Archetypes to choose identify the right narration tone to choose your song.

3.- Enhance the important moments:

Every visual piece, has its introduction, core and climax. Songs has them too!

So, everytime you musicalize any piece, have in mind the narration structure. This, will allow you to perfectly match music and video and enhance the important moments to communicate your message effectively.

You can easily identify a song’s structure through its wave view. Usually, peaks are the song’s climax and valleys their introduction. Like this:

Thus, it will be easier to match music and video and enhance important parts.

4.- Create contrast between image and music:

Sometimes, the most obvious is not the answer!

Contrast is a very powerful resource that allows you to enhance your message through the opposition of elements. This technique is largely used in advertising and filmmaking.

The best example of music and video opposition ever made, is the Godfather’s III final scene.

In the most dramatic and catartic scene of the saga, Coppola decides to use a calm and mellow classic song. This created one of the most iconic scenes in the cinema’s history. Just watch this masterpiece, no further explanation is needed:

Nevertheless, always remember that faster shutter means less blur and more FPS!

5.- Use references:

Before thinking using a drone, there’s always a scene that you can get inspired of. Then, you’ll have a clearer idea of what you want to capture. So, always include references in your shooting plan to compare and decide which suits you best.
