web-audio Getting started with web-audio Setup


We start off by creating an audio context and then create an oscillator which is the easiest way to check that your setup works. (Example fiddle)

// We can either use the standard AudioContext or the webkitAudioContext (Safari)
var audioContext = (window.AudioContext || window.webkitAudioContext);

// We create a context from which we will create all web audio nodes
var context = new audioContext();

// Create an oscillator and make some noise
var osc = context.createOscillator();

// set a frequecy, in this case 440Hz which is an A note
osc.frequency.value = 440;

// connect the oscillator to the context destination (which routes to your speakers)

// start the sound right away

// stop the sound in a second
osc.stop(context.currentTime + 1);
