SoundJam MP was an audio player for Macintosh operating system published by the now-defunct Casady & Greene. The program was written by Jeff Robbin, Bill Kincaid, and Dave Heller.

Apple purchased the rights to the SoundJam software in a deal covered by a two year secrecy clause. All three developers continued developing the software for Apple.

On January 9, 2001, iTunes 1.0 was released. Mac users immediately began poking through iTunes's resource fork, where they discovered numerous strings and other resources that indicated iTunes was a re-engineered SoundJam MP. Casady & Greene ceased distribution of SoundJam MP on June 1, 2001 at the request of the developers.

SoundJam MP is an excellent MP3 player for Mac OS 7, and has a family resemblence to later versions. It is the predecessor to iTunes, and sports many of the same features. MP Free is the freeware version that lacks CD audio ripping.
