I guys.  I have seen many of you use a format quite strange to me.
What would be the best & easiest way to transform wav, wma or aiff into ape.
I use SX 4, XP Pro.  Is there a specific program handling such conversions ?
Thanks for the tip.

Us windoz users use dbPoweramp for conversion.

Check that thread for links and details.

You guys use dbpoweramp?  ???

I use Monkey's Audio. I thought that was the original. Easy to use & works for me.

The reason I like dbpoweramp is that I have all the different choices of formats plugged into one program.... so for auditions I use it to convert to WMA of whatever quality I decide and for finished tracks APE... so it is a great "all in one" audio format program.

I've heard that dbpoweramp is free but it looks like it's only a trial that's free, is their a free version?

I use monkey because it is free.

The music converter is free and does not give you the usual nagging ..... buy me! nags... The various codecs are also free.... there is a nominal charge for adding the Lame MP3 codec if desired.... I used it for years for free and finally paid for and registered my copy... adding the MP3 codec.... but I actually was just so pleased with the program after using it for so long I thought I would register it...
