Monkey's Audio is a free utility that allows you to compress WAV audio files using a lossless codec with the same name. Converted audio files (in APE format) are characterized by excellent sound quality, and their size is about 40-50% smaller compared to the original.
The Monkey's Audio codec is an interesting alternative to other popular lossless audio formats, such as FLAC. It provides the same sound quality as the original, the files in this format have a smaller size, but the coding and decoding speed is higher than with other solutions of this type, and in the case of damage to the file, the data after the point of damage remain lost. The APE format is natively supported by Cowon portable players.
The tool's operation is very simple and should not cause any problems to anyone. The asset of Monkey's Audio is the ability to restore the original audio format of songs at any time. The program offers the functions of compression, decompression, conversion and verification of audio files.
