Description #

WAC (file extension: .wac) stands for Wildlife Acoustics Compressed Format. This is a legacy proprietary audio file format used by Wildlife Acoustics. Besides acoustic data, WAC files may also contain GPS information, if the recorder was GPS-enabled. WAC files are supported by the Kaleidoscope Pro Analysis Software. Otherwise, the bioacoustics package in R is able to read and convert WAC files to the WAVE format. See the Converting audio files withR section for more information.
