What's the point?
=================
BASSALAC is an extension to the BASS audio library, enabling the playing of
ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec) encoded files.

NOTE: The ALAC format is supported as standard by BASS via the OS's codecs
      on OSX 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 WavPack support to
the standard BASS stream (and sample) creation functions. Dedicated WavPack
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.
