Convert AUP to M4A
What is AUP?
AUP is Audacity Projects file. Audacity projects are stored in an AUP file, which
is a format that has been highly optimized for Audacity so that it can open and
save projects extremely quickly. In order to achieve this speed, Audacity breaks
larger audio files into several smaller pieces and stores these pieces in a directory
with a similar name as the project. For example, if you name a project "chanson",
then Audacity will create a project file called chanson.aup which stores the general
information about your project, and it will store your audio in several files
inside a directory called chanson_data. The Audacity Project format is not compatible
with any other audio programs, so when you are finished working on a project and
you want to be able to edit the audio in another program, you could export the
project to WAV file.
What is M4A?
M4A stands for MPEG 4 Audio. Since MPEG-4 Part 14 is a container format, MPEG-4
files may contain any number of audio, video, and even subtitle streams, making
it impossible to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its
filename extension alone. In response, Apple Inc. started using and popularizing
the .m4a file extension. Software capable of audio/video playback should recognize
files with either .m4a or .mp4 file extensions, as would be expected, as there
are no file format differences between the two. Most software capable of creating
MPEG-4 audio will allow the user to choose the filename extension of the created
Because of its exceptional performance and quality, Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)
is at the core of the MPEG-4, 3GPP and 3GPP2 specifications and is the audio codec
of choice for Internet, wireless and digital broadcast arenas. AAC provides audio
encoding that compresses much more efficiently than older formats, such as MP3,
yet delivers quality rivaling that of uncompressed CD audio.
