Maestro: Music File Sharing Is Back!

Published February 20th, 2007
Maestro is music sharing done right Maestro Music Sharing SoftwareOriginally downloaded February 20, 2007. If I'm reading the Maestro website correctly, this software provides a way for any users who are running Maestro to share song files across a network. Apple disabled this ability in iTunes fairly quickly after the iTunes store opened, and now all we can do is listen to others' files. Maestro runs its own client and can only communicate with other Maestro clients. It supports scheduling and playlist subscriptions, which is pretty cool. For a family, the price is definitely right: $8.95 gets you three licenses, which is probably enough for most. It uses Bonjour to discover other Maestro clients, even outside the local network. I'll give it a try and see how well it works and if anyone actually uses it.

Version as tested: 1.0.

Update 9/11/12. This software is no longer in development or supported.
