Monkey's Audio uses a combination of traditional lossless compression tactics (linear prediction and channel coupling) and a simple Neural network. To store the output values of its prediction step it uses Range coding, modified to work well with more or less continuous values.
Monkey's Audio's main competitor is FLAC, which has more features than Monkey's Audio (streaming support, for example) and hardware support to its advantage, though its efficiency in compression is not as great.
