As a guitar player, I usually use some effect-pedals to change the sound of my guitar. I started wondering: “What if, it would be possible to recreate these pedals using the web-audio-api?”. Well, it turns out, it is entirely possible to do so. This talk takes you through the basics of the web-audio-api and explains some of the audio-nodes I’ve used to change the live sound of my guitar. By the end of the talk, I hope the audience has some basic idea of how the web-audio-api works, and how to create some of the patterns usually found in guitar/audio effects.
I’m Sam Bellen and I’m a front-end software engineer at madewithlove. I love to play with the web-audio-api and other lesser known browser api’s. You can find me on twitter as @sambego.
