MPEG-Audio-Player: MAD for 68040 and MorphOS
Today we have a brand new port-release for you .. madplay, the best mpeg-audio player out there .. this will make a nice complement to the LAME encoder... The archive comes with binaries for 68040 and MorphOS... Please read the included amiga.readme for special instructions on usage!

From the MAD README:

MAD has the following special features:

  • 24-bit PCM output
  • 100% fixed-point (integer) computation
  • completely new implementation based on the ISO/IEC standards
  • distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL)
Because MAD provides full 24-bit PCM output, applications using MAD are able to produce high quality audio. Even when the output device supports only 16-bit PCM, applications can use the extra resolution to increase the audible dynamic range through the use of dithering or noise shaping.

Because MAD uses integer computation rather than floating point, it is well suited for architectures without a floating point unit. All calculations are performed with a 32-bit fixed-point integer representation.

Because MAD is a new implementation of the ISO/IEC standards, it is unencumbered by the errors and copyrights of other implementations. MAD is NOT a derivation of the ISO reference source or any other code. Considerable effort has been expended to ensure a correct implementation, even in cases where the standards are ambiguous or misleading.
