Average rating: ****.
(4.92, 12 ratings)

This session will cover the Web Audio API and how it can be applied to make sound effects and music for games, music apps, and even just providing some aural feedback for your regular interactive applications. We’ll compare to the HTML5 element, but show how to use audio input, analysis tools, and the effects processing chain to do interesting tricks.
