Monkey's Audio

A lossless audio compression method with five compression levels. Using the .APE file extension, the greater the compression, the longer it takes to encode and decode the content, making it less desirable on older computers or music players. Monkey's Audio was created for Windows, but some Mac media players also support the format. See lossless compression.
