Notes on the Challenge
Performance varies depending on the browser. Stuttering and shaky tempo can be heard due to setInterval not being as accurate as I once thought. The amount of jitter is absolutely unacceptable in firefox and I had no idea how bad till later. In hindsight I would have found a better solution. This project is my first foray into audio in the browser.
Regardless of the difficulties with setInterval I accomplished my goal of making a drum sequencer without the help of any framework such as React, Angular, or Vue. Web audio is a deep subject and I'm sure I'll be learning more about it for a long time to come.
