Have you tried it? I might have been mixing up ape and mkw or whatever that fourth format is called. Try it on this little one.

No Problem for Mac's
Get a program called ' xACT' (x Audio Compression Tool)
It works a treat for FLAC SHN and APE
xACT stands for X Audio Compression Toolkit. It is a GUI based front end (written in AppleScript Studio) for the unix applications Shorten (3.5.1), shntool (2.0.3), monkey's audio compressor (3.99),flac (1.1.1) and cdda2wav 2.01a32(with paranoia support). It also uses a modified md5sum (modified from 2.1 textutils) and sox (12.17.7). It does the basic commands of these applications and adds a few features to speed up productivity in creation of etree.org standard filesets.
Makes it's own sauce.
And it's Free!

Okay, so we have something new to contend with...
Where does one find a free download of this APE shit? (no pun intended - come to think of it, that's pretty funny, so yeah pun intended) I assume it's out there for free somewhere?
You should fill us in on this John. I may be a day or two slow, but I'm not living under a rock and I have never heard of this format until just now...
Tell us what's up wi'dat!
