|Description||The APE format is a popular audio format which uses lossless compression and a very effective compression algorithm. Many prefer to use Monkey Audio's main competitor FLAC which offers more features and hardware support. Most modern media players do not support the APE format and a number of users look to convert into more freely available formats such as MP3 and FLAC.||Waveform Audio File Format is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on PCs. It is the main format used on Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. The usual bitstream encoding is the linear pulse-code modulation (LPCM) format.|
|Technical details||Monkey's Audio does not discard data during the process of encoding the file. APE adopts file compression to reduce file transfer time, bandwidth and storage with no loss in quality with the ape file sounding exactly the same as the original digital recording (for example, CD). APE offers better compression rates than FLAC and has multithreading/multicore support in built.||Though a WAV file can contain compressed audio, the most common WAV audio format is uncompressed audio in the linear pulse code modulation (LPCM) format. Audio in WAV files can be encoded in a variety of audio coding formats, such as GSM or MP3, to reduce the file size.|
