SoundEffectManager

Is just that. It's a simple sound effect manager for playing sounds using the awesome HTML 5 Web Audio API.

If you think I'm talking about <audio> tags, go read this: http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/webaudio/intro/

It's significantly better than <audio> tags for several reasons:

  • You don't have to create a tag for each sound you want to play
  • You can multiplex an effect without having to create duplicate tags
  • You can also control volume and add other effects

Part of the Ampersand.js toolkit for building clientside applications.

Installing

npm install sound-effect-manager

Using it

// just init the sound effect manager
var SoundEffectManager = require('sound-effect-manager');

var sm = new SoundEffectManager();

// load some files by passing it a url and a name
sm.loadFile('taps.mp3', 'taps');
sm.loadFile('rocket.wav', 'rocket');

// then play the sounds like so:
sm.play('rocket');

// or play a sound in looping mode:
sm.play('taps', true);

// and to stop a loop:
sm.stop('taps');

// that's it!
