Monkey's Audio is a fast and powerful lossless audio compressor.
Monkey’s Audio is a fast and powerful lossless audio compressor. Unlike traditional methods, the program doesn't convert audio files to MP3, Ogg, or WMA (discard quality to save space), only makes perfect, bit-for-bit copies of your music.
Music files compressed using Monkey’s Audio always sounds perfect, because the sound is extracted from exactly the same audio as the original file. This kind of compression technology will save a lot of space (compression ratio 30% - 60%), and the audio sound will remain in perfect quality.
This is a big advantage when you enjoy listening to the highest quality audio. The Monkey's Audio files can be easily decompressed back to the exact, original files. That way, you'll never have to recopy your CD collection to switch formats, and you'll always be able to perfectly recreate the original music CD.
Moreover, Monkey’s Audio uses its own extremely flexible APE Tags so you can easily manage and catalog your Monkey’s Audio collection. You can also use Monkey's Audio as a front-end for all of your encoding needs. The audio compressor incorporates redundant CRC’s to ensure proper decompression.
