Application info

»TAK – [T]om’s lossless [a]udio [k]ompressor / [T]oms verlustfreier [A]udio[k]ompressor – is, as the name already suggests, a lossless audio compressor, similar to FLAC, WavPack and Monkey’s Audio. On average, lossless compression reduces the file size to about 50 percent of the original size; however the compression can vary between approximately 30 and 70 percent, depending on the file. Decompression restores a bit identical copy of the original audio data (that's why we call it lossless).

My goal was to develop a compressor which combines good compression with optimal decoding speeds. On average, the current implementation should match the compression efficiency of Monkey's Audio High, while achieving decompression speeds similar to FLAC.« (Quote of Thomas Becker from TAK’s readme)

The compression is slightly better and the fault tollerance is on the same level compared with FLAC.
