What is MPEG Audio for Macintosh 0.3.3?

MPEG Audio for Macintosh is a crude MP2 (or MPEG Layer II) audio file converter/player made by the creator of SoundApp and filled the gap for early 90's Macs before SoundApp came out and let Mac users convert and play almost any audio/video file format imaginable which rendered this early converter work obsolete, a message you could read on Norman Franke's website starting from around 1997.

What is MPEG Audio for Macintosh 0.3.3 ?

This is a first attempt at something that will let you play MPEG audio files on a Macintosh. It supports Layer I and Layer II files. It will attempt to play files on any Mac, but playback will probably only be smooth on a Power Macintosh. Conversion into SoundApp-compatible NeXT .snd files is supported on Power Macs and 68020 or better Macs. On slower machines, e.g. a Mac II, conversion will be extremely slow.


Sounds can be played or converted using the left or right channels only, or in stereo. Stereo playback requires more CPU power, of course. True 16-bit playback is supported on all Macs if the hardware supports it. To abort playback or conversion, type command-period. During playback, the application can be placed in the background. Pauses will occur if it does not get enough CPU, which is likely if anything else is done.
