I would like to contribute to the W3C audio spec. I met Doug Schepers at 
NAMM and he suggested I join this list.

An introduction:

In 1992 I developed a DSP based modular audio system for the 3DO video 
game console. In 1997 I developed a Java API for synthesis called JSyn 
that used a native code unit generator engine. JSyn has since been 
ported to pure Java. With Ross Bencina I started the PortAudio 
cross-platform audio I/O library project.

For several years my company sold a Java Applet called ListenUp that was 
used for recording and playing back voice messages in a web browser. 
ListenUp was used for language testing and voice forums. I am currently 
using ListenUp to develop an online dictation/transcription service.

I have also been working with Tom White and the MMA on a next-generation 
music protocol similar to MIDI. My company also developed a MIDI 
ringtone engine that was used in the Palm Treo and other devices.

I have also been contracting for the Sony PS3 runtime audio group for 
several years.

So far I really like what I am seeing in the WebAudio SDK. I will study 
it further and hope to offer some constructive comments.
