dsfTAKSource is a DirectShow push source filter for Tom’s lossless audio files
It performs decoding of .tak audio files using Tom's decoding library v 2.2.0 (tak_deco_lib.dll).
TAK (Tom’s lossless Audio Kompressor) is a
lossless audio compression algorithm and file format, developed by Thomas Becker ( http://thbeck.de/Tak/Tak.html ).
Audio compressed in a .TAK file requires about half the space required by a .WAV file, but the quality remains the same, all the bits are the same when playing, there is no loss in quality (lossless compression).
Encoding end decoding with Tom’s codec is very fast, with good compression ratios. This is a good result for a lossless audio compression algorithm.
for TAK codec does not provide a DirectShow filter, so you cannot play .tak
files in standard players such as Windows Media Player.
dsfTAKSource (actually a DirectShow source filter, wrapping tak_deco_lib.dll library) provides this, so that you can play .tak file in any player supporting DirectShow (not only WMP).
format is developed by Thomas Becker
( http://thbeck.de/Tak/Tak.html ).
