NOTE: The ALAC format is supported as standard by BASS via the OS's codecs on macOS and iOS, and also on Windows 10. Requirements ============ BASS 2.4 is required. Using BASSALAC ============== The plugin system (see BASS_PluginLoad) can be used to add ALAC support to the standard BASS stream (and sample) creation functions. Dedicated ALAC stream creation functions are also provided by BASSALAC. The usage information in the BASS.TXT file (from the BASS package) is also applicable to BASSALAC and other add-ons. TIP: The BASSALAC.CHM file should be put in the same directory as the BASS.CHM file, so that the BASSALAC documentation can be accessed from within the BASS documentation.
