The documentation can also be viewed online at the BASSASIO website. NOTE: The Delphi and VB examples may not always be up to date with the C examples, so the latter should be preferred as references if possible. NOTE: To run the example EXEs, first you will need to copy BASSASIO.DLL into the same directory as them. You will also need BASS.DLL, which can be download from the BASS website. BASSDSD.DLL is also required by the DSDTEST example. NOTE: To build the examples, you will need to copy the BASS API into the same directory as the BASSASIO API. BASSDSD is also required by the DSDTEST example. What's the point? ================= BASSASIO is basically a wrapper for ASIO drivers, with the addition of channel joining and sample format/rate conversion. Requirements ============ BASSASIO requires a soundcard with ASIO drivers installed. It also makes use of SSE optimizations, but is fully functional without them. The BASS library is not required by BASSASIO, but BASS can of course be used for decoding purposes, to apply DSP/FX, etc. Using BASSASIO ============== C/C++, Visual Basic and Delphi APIs and example projects are provided. To use BASS with another language you will first have to convert the header file. Or you could use LoadLibrary and GetProcAddress. There is no guarantee that all future BASSASIO versions will be compatible with all previous versions, so your program should use BASS_ASIO_GetVersion to check the version that is loaded. This also means that you should put BASSASIO.DLL in the same directory as your program (not just somewhere in the path), to avoid the possibility of a wrong version being loaded. If you are updating your software from a previous BASSASIO version, then you should check the "History" section (below), to see if any of the functions that you are using have been affected by a change. To use BASSASIO with Borland C++ Builder, you'll first have to create a Borland C++ Builder import library for it. This is done by using the IMPLIB tool that comes with Borland C++ Builder. Simply execute this: IMPLIB BASSASIOBCB.LIB BASSASIO.DLL ... and then use BASSASIOBCB.LIB in your projects to import BASSASIO. To use BASSASIO with LCC-Win32, you'll first have to create a compatible import library for it. This is done by using the PEDUMP and BUILDLIB tools that come with LCC-Win32. Run these 2 commands: PEDUMP /EXP BASSASIO.LIB > BASSASIOLCC.EXP BUILDLIB BASSASIOLCC.EXP BASSASIOLCC.LIB ... and then use BASSASIOLCC.LIB in your projects to import BASSASIO. For the BASSASIO functions that return strings (char*), VB users should use the VBStrFromAnsiPtr function to convert the returned pointer into a VB string. Latest Version ============== The latest versions of BASSASIO can be found at the BASSASIO website: www.un4seen.com Licence ======= BASSASIO is free for non-commercial use. If you are a non-commercial entity (eg. an individual) and you are not making any money from your product (through sales/advertising/etc), then you can use BASSASIO in it for free. If you wish to use BASSASIO in commercial products, then please also see the next section. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, BASSASIO IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND/OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE AUTHORS SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE USE OF BASSASIO. YOU USE BASSASIO ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Usage of BASSASIO indicates that you agree to the above conditions. ASIO is a trademark of Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH. All other trademarks and registered names contained in the BASSASIO package are the property of their respective owners. Commercial licensing -------------------- BASSASIO is available for use in your commercial products. The licence types available are as follows: SHAREWARE: Allows the usage of BASSASIO in an unlimited number of your shareware products, which must sell for no more than 40 Euros each. If you are an individual (not a corporation) making and selling your own software (and its price is within the limit), this is the licence for you. SINGLE COMMERCIAL: Allows the usage of BASSASIO in a single commercial product. UNLIMITED COMMERCIAL: Allows the usage of BASSASIO in an unlimited number of your commercial products. This licence is on a per site basis. So if your company has two sites that use BASSASIO, then two licences are required. Please note the products must be end-user products, eg. not components used by other products. These licences only cover your own software, not the publishing of other's software. If you publish other's software, its developers (or the software itself) will need to be licensed to use BASSASIO. In all cases there are no royalties to pay, and you can use future BASSASIO updates without further cost. One licence covers one person or entity and is not transferable. These licences do not allow reselling/sublicensing of BASSASIO. For example, if a product is a development system, the users of said product are not licensed to use BASSASIO in their productions; they will need their own licences. If the standard licences do not meet your requirements, or if you have any questions, please get in touch (email: email@example.com).
