Bonk is an audio compression program that can
operate in either lossy or lossless mode. In lossy
mode, it achieves around 14:1 compression while
remaining perceptually lossless; equivalent to
around 95 kbps for CD quality stereo. In lossless
mode, which allows exact recovery of the original
audio file, the compression ratio is typically
around 2:1. The compressed files are stored in a
new format based on speech compression techniques.
Compressed files can then be converted back to an
uncompressed format or played back in real time.
