What is .ape file extension?

.ape is used by Monkey’s audio files which are compressed using Monkey’s Audio lossless compression used on Windows. The compression algorithm used by .ape extension does not affect the quality of the file like other compression formats that alter or discard the data to save space. Files that you encode with Monkey’s Audio are normally reduced to half their original size. The size reduction is proportionate in data transfer and bandwidth requirements. Monkey’s Audio encoder can be integrated into other software programs, which is why APE files can be created with other programs.
