Monkey's Audio (APE) is the file format for lossless audio data compression, that is, a digital recording (such as a CD) encoded to the APE format can be decompressed into an identical copy of the original audio data, so it does not discard data during the process of encoding, unlike lossy compression methods such as AAC, MP3, Vorbis and Musepack.
Data file compression is employed in order to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time, and/or storage requirements. The advantages of the APE format are better compression rates and multicore support, but the disadvantages of the Monkey's Audio are the fact that it employs a symmetric algorithm, which means the decoding takes comparable resources to encoding, so it needs the fastest portable players and has limited support on software platforms other than Windows.
