Cost:
We have not decided a price for Macster yet. We would like to give it away free, but need to make enough money from it to purchase up-to-date versions of the software we used to create it (This mainly includes CodeWarrior, OTSessionWatcher, and Resourcer). We have considered either a small shareware fee or placing banner advertisements in the application, and selling ads to music related causes. If you have an comments or suggestions about this matter feel free to contact us.
