What Does Disco Mean?
Disco is an optical disk authoring software application for Apple's Mac OS X. Disco provides capabilities for audio disk/file burning, multiple disk file spanning, disk image creation and creating a searchable discography. Disco is a less-expensive alternative to Roxio Toast.
Disco was developed out of a collaborative effort between Austin Sarner and Jasper Hauser and released in 2007 as shareware. Users were required to pay a licensing fee after reaching a seven disk maximum on the same computer.
The Disco application has been offered as freeware since July 2011.
