BASS licensing issues....
« on: 4 Jan '13 - 12:23 »
hello everybody and happy new year for all you guys!!!!!!

so far we have tested this amazing library and we think we can start developing apps with it....so, our question is how reliable can it be using bass and all its modules and add-ons???

we intend to develop radio automation software, audio players, audio editors and so on, anything related to audio and all  for commercial purpose....

we first need to know if you intend to keep developing this library.... if so, is this library good enough to develop all those kind of apps??? we have tested it, but you are the guys behind it...

we also need you guys to explain to us all the licensing matter, what do we have to buy ??? if we are just paying for dlls or  if you sell the source code too along with the others files...

how do we proceed???

for now we are just interested on bass.net.... but you can give us all the sugar...

thanks a lot...

BASS is used in quite a lot of radio automation and audio player software, so if that is the sort of thing that you want to do, then I think BASS will be able to help you with that. A licence is not required until you are ready to deploy your software though, so you are free to begin developing your software without a licence, and if things don't work out for whatever reason, then you won't have wasted any money on a BASS licence. Please note that BASS and BASS.Net are licensed separately, so if you are using BASS.Net then you will need to license both (BASS.Net requires the BASS libraries). A licence permits you use the DLLs in your product(s); the source code is not included. Regarding add-ons, those listed in the "Add-ons" section on the BASS webpage are free to use with BASS, so if you are licensed to use BASS then you can use them too. Those listed under "More add-ons" were created by 3rd-parties and some may have additional licensing requirements (see the "readme" files).

If you would like to proceed with purchasing a Commercial licence, please complete the licensing form by following the link on the BASS webpage.
