The days when you needed a bunch of expensive musical equipment are gone. You all have devices with a web browser which is capable of creating, composing and modulating sound. The web-audio API makes it easier than ever before to create music on the web. It hosts an array of easy to use audio nodes, which take away a part of the hard work, while still allowing the desired flexibility to create the exact sound you’re after.
Sam will share with you the basics of the web-audio API. You will learn how to load and play sound files. How to create and compose sounds with the web-audio API. Sam will explain some of the audio nodes available in within the web-audio API and how to combine them to create some of the most used audio effect. As a cherry on top you’ll apply these effects on the sound of an electric guitar live on stage.
You're writing code every day as part of our jobs. You do not always have to use those skills to create something useful, but can also do some fun experiments with it. Playing with the web-audio API is a perfect way to improve your programming skills, and have fun at the same time.
