  • w3.org: Web Audio API - specification describes a high-level JavaScript API for processing and synthesizing audio in web applications. The primary paradigm is of an audio routing graph, where a number of AudioNode objects are connected together to define the overall audio rendering. The actual processing will primarily take place in the underlying implementation (typically optimized Assembly / C / C++ code), but direct JavaScript processing and synthesis is also supported.


  • Web Audio Developers Community Group - brings together hackers and developers interested in using the emerging Web Audio API. By providing community support on using the API and surfacing issues with the draft standard, it complements the work of the W3C Audio Working Group where the specification is being developed. This group will not create specifications.


  • https://github.com/WebAudio/web-audio-cg - the repository for the W3C Audio Community Group.The Audio Community Group is to gather and incubate new features for the better audio functionality on web. It is also to make it easier for the community to engage with the Audio Working Group.




  • JavaScript Systems Music - In this guide we'll explore some of the history of systems music and the possibilities of making musical systems with Web Audio and JavaScript. We'll pay homage to three seminal systems pieces by examining and attempting to recreate them: "It's Gonna Rain" by Steve Reich, "Discreet Music" by Brian Eno, and "Ambient 1: Music for Airports", also by Brian Eno.

  • genish.js - a library to help develop optimized audio callbacks employing per-sample processing techniques. This enables signal processing that is not possible using buffers.



  • https://wavesurfer-js.org/ a customizable audio waveform visualization, built on top of Web Audio API and HTML5 Canvas. With wavesurfer.js you can create anything from an HTML5 audio player to a sophisticated DJ application.

  • Timbre.js provides a functional processing and synthesizing audio in your web apps with modern JavaScript's way like jQuery or node.js. It has many T-Object (formally: Timbre Object) that connected together to define the graph-based routing for overall audio rendering. It is a goal of this project to approach the next generation audio processing for web.


  • Band.js - Music Composer - An interface for the Web Audio API that supports rhythms, multiple instruments, repeating sections, and complex time signatures.
