Hello,

Do we have an issue already regarding the need for introspection into any given AudioContext?

I have been looking at a number of demos recently, and thought it would be a good learning playground if anyone could open the js console in their browser, find an AudioContext, walk its nodes and act on it. For one thing, there have been quite a few occasions when I'd want to insert an AudioGainNode to mute a few demos without a start/stop control.

As far as I can tell though, there is no easy way to do such introspection. I quickly discussed it with Chris Lowis today, and he mentioned an earlier thread, which I do remember somewhat but haven't found yet in our archives. Nor do we seem to have a Bugzilla issue tracking this.

Two (and a half) questions:
* Is there a way to do this which I've simple overlooked?
* Anyone remembers when the discussion on this topic happened, and could find a pointer? And am I missing the issue in which this is being tracked/discussed?

Thanks,
Olivier
