In-browser audio input/output device access for JavaScript
Branch: master


aud.i-o attempts to bring streaming audio input devices to JavaScript in a fashion compatible with the Web Audio API [ ]. If/When streaming audio I/O is standardised, this will behave as a polyfill to bring functionality to non-supporting browsers (via the currently-used Flash fallback, perhaps Java or Silverlight). 

Currently in an embryonic stage - I don't have a browser with working a Web Audio implementation, so integration is not attempted. Furthermore, the API is far from clean, and overall is more of a 'spike' to prove the concept.

In short, don't use this just yet. :p

Alongside the main focus of development - aud.i-o.js - is an example page which renders waveforms, and performs predictive/quantizing/lossy audio compression/decompression. This is just a demo, and might eventually be split off into another project, if browser audio APIs don't end up providing an audio compression output node for sending data over the network.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
