In this meetup we discuss what Web Audio can bring to creative development. Sound designers, javascript coders, musicians, and anyone else with a shared interest in Web Audio and online music production are welcome to join the meetup to learn from each other and make new connections.

Web Audio is a JavaScript API for processing and synthesizing audio in web applications. The goal of this API is to include capabilities found in modern game audio engines and some of the mixing, processing, and filtering tasks that are found in modern desktop audio production applications such as Ableton & Logic.

For this meetup we already have a few great presentations lined up. There still are some slots for short presentations, contact Jan Misker if you want to present.

songsling.io / Attila Haraszti
Attila Haraszti (`@haywirez`/`@rawfare`) will present http://songsling.io, a tool that lets artists turn their music into interactive tracks that react to changes on the Internet. The talk will dive into the history and legacy of music playback systems, the unrealized potential of our devices and detail his quest to build a next-level web player that lets the listener explore and DJ with any track straight from an artist’s website.

Audio Pipes / Jan Misker
Audio Pipes is a Chrome extension that makes it possible to stream audio between any webpage that utilizes web audio. A script is injected on a webpage that checks whether audio is produced or consumed on the page. The user can select which pages to connect, after which a connection is made between those pages. The source code is available on https://github.com/JanMisker/Audio-Pipes
