What Is It?

    Who wrote it?

    The main Audiogalaxy Satellite program for RISC OS was written by Marc Warne. Some help was also provided by Justin Fletcher including finding out how the new Audiogalaxy protocol works. It is based on the Windows/Linux Audiogalaxy Satellite program written by people at Audiogalaxy itself.
