APE converterAPE files are good as they are in lossless format (no data is lost) but still compressed (the size is less than say in lossless WAV). That's why APE format is popular in the web among those who care about the quality of the sound. Many shows are also uploaded in APE format as MP3 provides a poorer quality.

But many mp3 players including iPods do not support APE. Besides, you can not take APE files to your car player - most probably it will not play them. So one has to sacrifice high quality to supported formats and convert APE to MP3.

Unlike APE files in MP3 format can be played by almost every device. Besides, they are smaller in size and one can fit more music into an mp3 player.

So how to convert ape files to mp3 in Windows. There are a few ways. The cheapest is to use 2 programs: Monkey's Audio and iTunes. First, you decode APE files with Monkey's Audio, then you convert them to mp3 with iTunes. The advantage of this way is the price. You do not have to pay money. But it takes a lot of time to master both programs and learn how to make them work. Besides, in this way you create an intermediary wav file, which leads to a bigger quality loss.

The other way is to use a good audio converter. The conversion is done in one program and no intermediary files are created. You save time and nerves but have to pay for a license.

It's up to you to decide. We recommend using Total Audio Converter. It's easy-to-use and very powerful. All types of APE files are converted to MP3 in minutes. If you do not know what bitrate or frequency to choose the wizard of the program can automatically set the best values. Advanced users will appreciate command line support. Download your copy and try.

Total Audio Converter runs on Windows 2000/NT/XP/2003/Vista/7.
