2012/05/21 – No Comments

We use audio in a web browser all the time, listening to songs on YouTube or reacting to a sound in a flash game. But upcoming (and to some extent already available) techniques promise more: Interactive, dynamic audio with signal processing and even access to the sample level.

New Site!
