MacAMP Lite Promotes New Standard for MacOS Applications

Lugano, Switzerland, Jan 20, 1999 — @soft announces its new product,
MacAMP Lite. MacAMP Lite is an innovative audio multimedia player for
the MacOS, featuring a small and easy to use interface, plugin
architecture and playlist support. The application with a particulary
low memory requirements (only 1024Kb for best performance) and a wide
range of supported sound formats, including CD Audio, MP3, IT, MOD,
XM, MIDI and more, promises to be an outstanding tool for every Mac

The user interface for the program is made of a single control
strip-like window, floating above all other applications, allowing
easy access to most of MacAMP Lite’s features, such as playlist,
play, stop, forward and rewind buttons. Users can also customize
MacAMP Lite with custom appearance files, called “Skins”, that
greatly change the look of the player.

MacAMP Lite makes use of a new technology invented by @soft, called
Phrase Books. With only one file of 10-15Kb in size, MacAMP Lite can
be localized for another language, including menus, dialogs, and
strings. Instead of downloading a whole new localized application,
just get a small Phrase Book and MacAMP Lite will “speak” the
appropriate language.

Being small, flexible, and an easy-to-use tool, MacAMP Lite promotes
the new standard for MacOS applications.

Based in Lugano, Switzerland, and founded in 1997, @soft is a leading
provider of tools and technology solutions to the multimedia consumer
market. MacAMP, @soft’s flagship product, is widely recognized as
being the leading audio multimedia player for MacOS.
