SoundJam MP was an MP3 player, which Apple acquired and turned into the first version of iTunes. Its competition was Panic's Audion.

SoundJam features fast conversion from CD, AIFF, QuickTime, and WAV formats to MP3, and allows you to play MP3 streams over the internet. You can quickly and easily create customizable playlists, and organize your music by artist, track, song, and music style. It features a 10-Band Graphic Equalizer that allows you to control the quality and tone of your music manually or by using preset music styles: Jazz, Rock, Classical and more.

Included is a selection of skins to change the look and plug-ins for cool visual effects, and if you want to use skins from Audion or Winamp Classic, the "Skin Conversion Tool" will help you in this task. Skins are also available as separate downloads.

G-Force visualizers, for SoundJam, are located here:

SoundJam MP is Internet-friendly! As mentioned, MP3 stream play is supported, you can use the Kerbango Radio Service to hear internet radio.

As of today, launching SoundJamMP v2.5.2 on OSX doesn't work, I get this:

I tried tossing the preferences, but no joy... :/ Any idea were to get another working version ?
Pity I used to listen to radio with it. Even had done it a custom hires icon.

Do any of these versions communicate with the Rio 500 MP3 player?

I'm not familiar with Rio players but the install in the download for version 2.5.3 installs both Rio and Nomad USB drivers. So I assume that would be yes.

Do any of these versions communicate with the Rio 500 MP3 player? I do remember reading Mac users were able to use SoundJam to sync with that device.

I loved this software in college (at least before Apple appropriated it into iTunes) ((That's a Tron reference.))

Anyway, for those of you who would like to use SoundJam MP with CDDB database lookup, here's what you do:

The original CDDB servers hard-coded into SoundJam and the AppleCD Player programs are no longer accessible. You will need to redirect the host to the FreeDB host (given as an IP address Host below).

(1) Get TCP/IP working and active in the TCP/IP contol panel.
(2) If your Macintosh doesn't have a Hosts file in the System Folder or Preferences folder, open SimpleText and create it. If you DO have a Hosts file in either of these locations, open the file in SimpleText and add this line to the bottom: A

You can use tab or spaces to separate the three fields. Save the file.
(3) Open the TCP/IP control panel, pull down Edit, then select User Mode. Select Advanced and OK.
(4) Click the Select Hosts File button and choose your Hosts file.
(5) Restart.
(6) In SoundJam MP: Pull down Edit menu, select Preferences. Select CD Lookup.
(7) Enter the FreeDB submit email:
(This will prevent SoundJam from protesting that the email is invalid.)
You should be good to go now.

This particular WhiteCap v3.2 is for SoundJam only, not even a standalone included with it.

Is this the correct page for WhiteCap 3.2 ?

This is fantastic software. I had a scratched CD and was so glad someone posted an image. I now have a fully functional MP3-playing TAM again! For what it is worth, this is the only MP3 player I have found that can reliably open all MP3s I throw at it (even 256-kbps) under System 7.6.1

This has been up on the Garden for quite awhile, I only edited it today because I was thinking about Casady & Greene applications and wondered why this one didn't show up. Don't just wait for stuff to show up on the "recent changes," go take a look around the site alphabetically or click on publishers' or authors' names to see what else turns up. A lot of things posted here are neglected.

Perfect, thanks! I had just the Free version on my iMac G3 but couldn't track down my old copy of the full app. I used this for years! The strongest memory is listening to the mp3 export of my new songs after they were completed... was the first thing I remembered upon seeing the SoundJam MP interface . Smile

Someone who uses old hardware. And who says it is limited to MP3?

Who would need a software or hardware player which is limited to MP3?

Apple purchased SoundJam as a basis of the later iTunes.
