When developers Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev released the initial version of Winamp back in the late 90s, little did they know they were laying the foundation 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 UI, developer Alexander Vasilchenko has released a music player for macOS. Written in Swift, you can use re:AMP for free.

“Re:AMP is a fast, flexible, high-fidelity music player for macOS X, fully written in Swift. It supports a lot of audio formats, custom interfaces called skins from classic Winamp,” says the developer.
You get the classic player interface with all the controls you know and love, including equalizer and playlist. The best part about the player, however, is that it supports all Winamp skins. Hence, you can go right to Winamp Skin museum and download your favorite skin for the player.
