DC-Bass Source Mod
I'd like to introduce DC-Bass Source Mod.

As the assembler of DirectShow FilterPack I've been using the DC-Bass Source Filter for a long time now. My latest version contains DC-Bass Source, but also a separate DirectShow filter for Audio CDs [!--sizeo:1--][span style=\"font-size:8pt;line-height:100%\"][!--/sizeo--](MPC-HC Team - CDDA Source Filter)[/size] and one for the lossless audio codec TAK [!--sizeo:1--][span style=\"font-size:8pt;line-height:100%\"][!--/sizeo--](Livio Cavallo - TAK Source Filter)[/size], while the BASS audio library already has an Audio CD add-on and recently I even found a working TAK add-on. So this had to change.
Although it's been a long time since I've last done some coding, I've downloaded DC-Bass Source's source files and after a lot of trial and error I managed to add support for the Audio CD- and TAK add-on.

I'm here on a Windows XP SP3 install and after a lot of testing I can say, it works beautifully here. Afaik DC-Bass Source already worked fine on Windows 7, but since I don't have it (yet), I was wondering if anyone here can test its functionality. I've changed register.bat and unregister.bat so they should work on Windows 7 (I think).

For my DirectShow FilterPack it means it will get a label "discontinued", because it obviously isn't worth to continue assembling a package with only 2 DirectShow filters left; DC-Bass Source Mod and LAV Filters [!--sizeo:1--][span style=\"font-size:8pt;line-height:100%\"][!--/sizeo--](I don't think anyone would miss the MPC-HC Team - CDXA Source Filter nowadays)[/size]. Especially when LAV Filters has become so big now that its author recommends to use the installer instead of simply registering the ax-files.

About LAV Filters...If you'd like to use DC-Bass Source Mod merely as a supplement to LAV Filters, I would recommend downloading the 7z-file, because it contains the file Registration_light.ini. Rename Registration.ini to Registration.ini.bak [!--sizeo:1--][span style=\"font-size:8pt;line-height:100%\"][!--/sizeo--](or something similar)[/size] and rename Registration_light.ini to Registration.ini. If you then run register.bat, only those audio formats that LAV Filters doesn't support will be registered and LAV Filters remains fully functional.
As I'm a total newbie with the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System, at the moment the installer enables all supported formats and thus overrides those supported by LAV Filters.

 The DC-Bass Source Filter is a DirectShow filter wrapped around the
 BASS audio library.

 It currently supports the following sample audio formats:
  MP2,MP3  (MPEG-1 Layer 2 & 3)
  OGG      (Vorbis)
  AAC,M4A  (Advanced Audio Coding)
  MPC      (MusePack)

  ALAC,ALS (Apple Lossless Audio Codec)
  APE,MAC  (Monkey's Audio)
  CDA      (Compact Disc Audio track)
  FLAC    (Free Lossless Audio Codec)
  OFR      (OptimFROG)
  TAK      (Tom's Audiokompressor)
  TTA      (True Audio)
  WV      (WavPack)

 SHOUTcast/Icecast streams (online radiostations):

 Tracker audio formats:
  IT      (Impulse Tracker Module)
  MO3      (Tracker Module with MP3 or OGG samples)
  MOD      (Tracker Module)
  MTM      (Multi Tracker Module)
  S3M      (Scream Tracker 3 Module)
  UMX      (Unreal Tournament music package)
  XM      (Fast Tracker 2 Extended Module)

 SHOUTcast/Icecast Streams can be saved from within the PropertyPage
 or by using the IDCBassSource Interface.

 SHOUTcast/Icecast Tags can be read using the IAMMediaContant or
 IDCBassSource Interface.

 Run register.bat or use the installer executable.

 Run unregister.bat or, if you have used the installer, go to
 'Control Panel' -> 'Add or Remove Programs' and uninstall it
 from there. Alternatively there's also an uninstaller in the
 installation directory.

 Media Player Classic - Home Cinema (MPC-HC) has limited SHOUTcast/
 Icecast support at the moment. So for listening to online
 radionstations I would recommend using another media player.
