This paper explores how the Advanced Authoring Format (AAF) model, a vehicle for exchanging metadata and media-rich content, can be used to describe audio program compositions so that they can be more seamlessly exchanged between audio editors who work with tools designed by different manufacturers. In addition, the extensibility of the format is discussed as a means of looking at its future potential.
