Just as we know, Soundtrack Pro and Logic Studio use the .caf format extensively for their loop and sound effects library. Most iPhone/iPad/iPod recordings are also made in Apple's Core Audio Format (CAF) by QuickVoice or many other voice recorders.
However, CAF audio is not compatible with most media players or audio editing software. Though this Core Audio Format is developed by Apple Inc, it is only compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and higher; Mac OS X 10.3 needs QuickTime 7 to be installed. Even so, iTunes and iMovie still cannot support CAF audio no matter on what version of the Mac OS X. Let alone to edit or play CAF files on non-Apple devices like Windows Media Player, Android phone, BlackBerry, PS3, Xbox 360 and etc.
