📖 About CASL 📖

CASL (pronounced Castle), is an acronym for (C)ross-platform (A)udio and (S)ound (L)ibrary and uses the latest possible dotnet version. CASL plays and manages sounds powered by OpenAL 1.1, using software rendering, which is accomplished by using low-level bindings to the native OpenAL library. CASL can be used for video games and sound players and works on any dotnet-compliant platform.

Note Cross-platform work is still a WIP, but CASL works using Windows.
