When developers Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev released the initial version of Winamp in the late 1990s, little did they know they were laying the groundwork for what would become one of the most popular and beloved music players of the generation.
Fast forward to 2021, Winamp still holds a special place in the hearts of everyone who grew up in this era. In an attempt to replicate the player’s much-loved classic user interface, developer Alexander Vasilchenko has released a music player for macOS. Written in Swift, you can use re: AMP for free.
re: AMP for macOS
“Re: AMP is a fast, flexible, and high-fidelity music player for macOS X, entirely written in Swift. Supports many audio formats, custom interfaces called classic Winamp skins “, says the developer.
You get the classic player interface with all the controls you know and love, including the equalizer and the playlist. The best part of the player, however, is that supports all Winamp skins. So you can go straight to the Winamp Skin museum and download your favorite player skin.
