MP3 to APE Converter: How to Convert MP32APE in 2021

If you have been searching forums for a reputable MP3 to APE converter online, you no longer have to. Audio Transcoder is a reliable and easy-to-use free MP3 to APE converter software for PC or Mac.

MP3 stands for AVS Plugin Effects (also known as Monkey's Audio). It's a type of file that uses a very effective compression algorithm and lossless compression to reduce file transfer time and retain the audio quality of the music, if not enhance it.

However, the MP3 format becomes too large for comfort. Not to mention, not all media players process this audio format.

Our MP3 to APE online software solves this problem!

You can also use Audio Transcoder as a media player and for ripping CDs. It is easy to convert MP3 to APE from Audacity or many other programs by selecting tracks and clicking a button. It is intuitive, so that you don’t need to be an IT wizard to use it.

What Do the Experts Think of Audio Transcoder?

The leading authority on technology and software solutions, CNET.com, reviewed our software and gave us an overall 4.5 stars (out of 5) for usability and output quality.

“The program's interface is basic and no-frills, with its two major functions - a CD ripper and audio converter - arranged in separate tabs. We found both features easy to use, with a series of check boxes and drop-down menus allowing us to select tracks, format file names, edit metadata, and choose formats. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.”

So Let’s Get Started!

Once you have clicked on our MP3 to APE download program and installed it, your Audio Transcoder is ready to use right away.

Unless you are an advanced user, we recommend that you select the default settings. Upon opening the program, you will see a dashboard that resembles a windows directory tree (Folder Explorer).

You will see at the top there are two tabs:

  • Audio CD Ripper
  • Audio Converter

 

A large blank space that we call the Drop Zone is on the right-hand side of the directory tree area.

Step 1 - Select the Ape Files for Conversion

Select the Audio Converter Tab. You will see it opens your music library. You can also browse for a specific audio file location, for example, via an external drive.

Using Folder Explorer, browse for the MP3 Files that you would like to convert to APE. You can drop and drag them into the ‘Drop Zone’ on the right-hand side of the Folder Explorer. You can do it one at a time, or using <shift + mouse click> you can select many files simultaneously. You can even select your entire music library for bulk conversion.

When you are satisfied with the list you have created, you are ready to do the next step, which promises lightning-fast MP3 to APE for iTunes, VLC, Audacity, or any other program you use.

TIP before getting started: You may wish to organise your music folder so that the MP3 titles are already sorted into a section of your music library. This will make the batch conversion process even faster—a good option for MP3 to APE foobar users.

Step 2 - Configure Your Conversion Settings

Once you have selected the MP3 files to convert to APE, you will need to see the output format tab in the bottom third of the screen. Here is where you can fine-tune how you wish the converted APE files to sound and behave. You can overwrite existing files or skip certain files in this process.

You can select the location for the new files to be stored. For example, you can store the converted files in a music folder on your desktop, a portable drive, or direct to your phone via USB or WI-FI transfer.

The enhanced software version also allows for the MP3 + cue file to be configured so you can accurately have a break between tracks. Audio Transcoder recognises the cue file and splits it from the MP3 file accordingly. This is sometimes missed in other conversion methods.

As you seek to convert MP3 to APE, you should select APE in the drop-down dialog box. You can select the bitrate, sample rate, and number of channels.

For good quality, make sure that you select above 44.1 kHz. We recommend using the bit rate of 128 kbps. In the settings box, you can select additional options such as the channels. For superior performance and listening enjoyment, we recommend that you choose mono as the channel.

If you are satisfied with the customised settings, you are ready for the transcoding or conversion step. This is the easiest step of all and is a great way to reduce the size of your music library. You will have your MP3 to APE via VLC or other media library formats.

Step 3 - Converting MP3 to APE With a Click of the Mouse

Now that you have selected your MP3 files and output settings, all that is left to do now is press "Convert," which is highlighted with a treble clef icon. A dialog box will then open to tracking the progress of the MP32APE conversion. If you want to stop the conversion at any time, you can click the stop button.

You can specify the priority from idle to high during the conversion process or before you start. You are also able to set an automatic process when the conversion is finished.

You do not have to ‘babysit’ the program, and you can just let it run. It will even turn off your PC/Laptop when it is finished if you have selected this.

Step 4 - Transfer Converted Audio Files to Itunes, Phone, Player or CD (Optional)

You can choose to listen to the converted files in Audio Transcoder’s in-built media player. You can also find them in the output folder that you specified when you chose the settings in Step 2.

Once there, you can upload them to any connected device and enjoy them away from home on your phone or APE player, or tablet.
