APE is one of the popular digital music file formats. Unlike lossy compression methods like MP3, APE is a lossless compression audio format, it’s also to say that the audio data file from an audio CD compress into APE format, and then restores the APE format, and the restored audio file is exactly the same as source compression without any loss. The size of the APE file is about half of the CD, thus it can save a lot of space.

However, APE audio file employs a symmetric algorithm, which means that decoding takes comparable resources to encoding, so it unsuitable for all but the fastest portable players (via Rockbox firmware). Also it has limited support on software platforms other than Windows; on other platforms only decoding is officially supported by third-party programs. Although the original source code is freely available, the license is not considered to be an open source one.
