Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver,

MP3 player. Not much use with emulators, but if you've got old Macs this software is invaluable and increasingly hard to find. Panic retired Audion and released it for free. These are those final and free versions:

Alas, I was forced to "upgrade" from Mac OS 10.6.8 up to Yosemite (10.10.10) a few years back

I have a Mbook Pro that I've "downgraded" to 10.6.8, so I can continue to use this software Wink

Not entirely true. I downgraded so I could continue to use PPC apps under Rosetta (including Audion).

Alas, I was forced to "upgrade" from Mac OS 10.6.8 up to Yosemite (10.10.10) a few years back, and Audion quit working, so I switched to Swinsian, which, amazingly enough, easily imported a few of my Audion playlists!

Unfortunately I missed one or two, and after a few updates to Swinsian, it no longer can read my old Audion playlists.

Work very well with OS 9.2.2 CD,MP3 and Radio url.
All 3 MP3 records encoders work very well but i prefer to use the include Lame encoder.

I still think the best MP3 player ever for MacOS 9 was MacAmp Lite (1.5.1). This was the ONLY MP3 player that didn't stop playing when ejecting a disc/floppy.

I am using Audion to play the files from my Unix volume with SheepShaver, occasionally.
Audion will play all suitable files for me from Ext4, NTFS or FAT drives.

The "Classic" PPC version is also available free at the Audion web site on the download page - "Audion 3.0.2a for Mac OS 8/9.sit.bin [2.1 MB] Mac OS 8/9. Free version." http://www.panic.com/audion/download.html <-- Edit 2015 - dead link.

I found this one to be the best mp3 player for OS9 and below, simply because it's easy to use but won't take up as many ressources as iTunes does. Highly recommend it!
