MP3 is a patented encoding format for digital audio which uses a form of lossy data compression. The use in MP3 of a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording. A MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 1/11 the size of the CD file created from the original audio source. A MP3 file can also be constructed at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality.
Why we want to convert APE to MP3?
APE is lossless audio format for audio data compression, which means that no audio information is lost when you convert your files into this format. It may seem that APE is a better option, but it can’t be supported by most popular player device and portable device. As I have already mentioned as above, the resulting MP3 files are much smaller and would have excellent quality with higher bitrates that still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners. And MP3 files are supported by most multimedia devices, while APE support is rare (it is a bit slow to decode).
