# Does Wav format supports writing complex values

I have a sine tone, doing some math, and finally gets an harmonically accumulated sine tone in complex numbers. I do want to preserve the phase information of imaginary part on the other end, which will continue processing the complex signal. So,

Is there any way i can safely pack the complex number into any of standard file formats, such as wav ?

Note : Currently I am writing this signal's byte values to a .bin file

• Thanks lllishar, Standard programs like Audacity will be able to read the file and make calculations on each (or both) channels is what i wanted. But my data is itself multi-channel. So any way to deal with source complex signal being multi-channel signal? – nmxprime Oct 14 '14 at 8:49
