MagiC Mac is an emulator of the Atari ST/TT computer line running the MagiC multitasking TOS-compatible operation system, allowing Atari users to run their software on top of Mac OS.

Several hardware components typical for the Atari ST/TT computers, as blitter and sound chip, are simulated, thus giving MagiC Mac a high compatibility to existing Atari ST programs. It support besides the traditional screen resolutions of 640x400 in monochrome mode, 640x200 in 4-color mode and 320x200 in 16-color mode, arbitrarily chosen b/w and color resolutions up to 16 colors.

Additional features:
• Reuse of Centronics interface printers using PowerPrint, McStout or McStout Classic adapters.
• Reuse of SCSI hardware (external hard disks, CD-ROMs) possible.
• use of online and terminal programs through the Macintosh network connections through ARA.
• file access to disk image container files or to host file system (including access to floppy disk and SCSI volumes) is supported.
• exchange with Macintosh clipboard supported including ASCII character conversion between Mac and Atari side.
• optional NVDI system extension supporting 8-, 16-, and 24-bit color screen modes and use of TrueType fonts in Atari programs, accelerated through QuickDraw.
• printing to any (local or network) Mac printer supported through NVDI Mac

Magic Mac is now officially abandonware. You can download the source code here: https://gitlab.com/AndreasK/Atari-Mac-MagiC-Sources/-/tree/master

Sadly, that doesn't get us any closer to having a build that we can install on classic mac hardware.
