W3C Announces Web Audio API as an Official Standard

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has made Web Audio API—which focuses on music and audio creation and manipulation—an official standard. This JavaScript API is “for creating, shaping, and manipulating sounds directly in a Web browser. It is already widely deployed for the creation of music and sound effects on Web pages, for the creation of online musical instruments, for Web games, and for collaborative artworks such as sound installations.”

Web and app developers can use it to make resources such as “auditory feedback in user interfaces, musical instruments, soundtracks and effects for entertainment and gaming, teaching, spatial audio for AR and VR, online audio editing apps, crossfading and compression for in-car music management, and audio analysis and visualisation.”

For more information, read the press release.
