APE (Monkey’s Audio) is a lossless audio file format released in 2000 by Matthew T. Ashland. Because it’s a lossless sound format, it doesn’t lose data during compression, unlike other standard formats like AAC, MP3, and Vorbis. However, Monkey’s Audio is available on PC only. To play APE on Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need a third-party plugin like JRiver Media Center.
AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate Audio Codec) is a sound compression format that is designed for speech coding. It is today widely used in UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) and GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications). Most modern mobile phones can save short sound recording clips in AMR format and can be converted to other standard sound formats using a third-party program like Wondershare UniConverter.
