    Hi and welcome to MacAmp.nu – the home and history of one of the earliest Mp3 players for Macintosh. It was first released on April 13, 1997. In 1999 it was one of the most used for Macintosh.

    The decoding was based on the PlayMedia Systems AMP MPEG-2, Layers 1, 2 and 3 decoder.

    MacAmp is still available for download over here. The official site of MacAmp (www.macamp.com) is no longer available, but here – at the former official site – you can enjoy a bit of it’s history.
