WebModular — a Web Audio API and Audio Data API synth


Apparently it is modular synthesizer week.  From the folks at g200kg.com comes WebModular, an impressive and easy-to-use modular synthesizer build entirely using HTML5 and JavaScript.  There are a couple neat features worth pointing out:

  • WebModular employs both the Web Audio API and Mozilla's Audio Data API, so it works great in Chrome and Firefox browsers.
  • Like Google's Moog Doodle, you can play WebModular with your QWERTY keyboard.
  • Playback can be scripted by the user, with instructions listed below the entry field.

All in all, it's a great demonstration.  I hope they add MIDI support once the Web MIDI API is ready!

Thanks to Kevin Ryan for the contribution!
