Mac source code is available (as well as Visual Studio).. I'm pretty sure there are Mac apps out there..

"Monkey's Audio 4.18 SDK (with source code) (recently edited to fix an int/intn problem on Mac)"
This version was released 8/6/16. There were Linux and Mac fixes back in 2013, it's been available for most OS's for a while.
XLD is one Mac app (10,000 downloads this week?)
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xld/
Last updated about a month ago.
It's still kickin'

Apple has ALAC (apple lossless codec), which is roughly like FLAC.

.. and XLD works with ALAC, FLAC and MAC.
you can easily have it all. smile
We live in good times.

Monkeys Audio is the only one I've personally used that can bring back a true bit-to-bit exact copy after the fact.
FLAC is very good, as is ALAC, but if you want to be sure ..

I tried it. One thing you have to make sure is to turn off the monkey sound when compression is complete! I noticed on a short 36 MB song it saved about 50% space, and each of the five or six compression levels was nearly the same size.

Adobe Audition 1.5 will not read an .ape file. I'll try it a few more places.

It does seem that Monkeys Audio is relevant to this thread about SoundCloud, because you can upload a file of half the size without any loss in sound. Then you know any compression mangling is caused by SoundCloud, YouTube etc.

You are verifying APE works for SC upload for you?

No. I don't use SoundCloud. I don't know if this works. I rather assumed you might.

Nope, not a SC user either.

Like I said, I use APE mainly for backups to save time/space (and yet know I can have an exact copy when needed). I've also used it to collaborate with some Linux users.. we could send tracks back/forth efficiently.

I copied this from SC:

"What types of files can I upload? You can upload AIFF, WAVE (WAV), FLAC, ALAC, OGG, MP2, MP3, AAC, AMR, and WMA files. The maximum file size is 5GB. "

So no SC will not accept APE files.
