Windows Process Description:

BASS is an audio library that finds uses in Windows and Mac OSX software. Its primary purpose is to provide developers with powerful and efficient stream like MP3, MP2, MP1, OGG, WAV, and AIFF.

When incorporated in Windows, BASS requires DirectX 3 or above for output. Thru the module bass.dll, BASS takes advantage of DirectSound and DirectSound3D hardware accelerated drivers, when available. On OSX, BASS uses CoreAudio for output and OSX 10.3 is recommended. Both PowerPC and Intel Macs are likewise supported by the bass.dll application.
