Re: generating sound with createJavaScriptNode in an emulator

Hi Antonio,

I tried running this on the Mac and it's also rendering quite badly (left
channel only, distorted, etc.):

I'm forwarding my previous reply to the general list and think these
problems need to be solved:

Hi Antonio,

I can see couple of problems:

1. I notice that you're changing the "onaudioprocess" function, but in the
first function you're setting "data".  The audio data buffer will change
each and every callback, so you need to set "data" by calling
getChannelData(0) again in each call to your buffer function.

2. I don't see where you're initializing the "sample" variable.  Also, it
looks like you're doing a bit operation with "sample ^= 0x40".  The sample
values should be floating point in a range from -1.0 -> +1.0, not an integer
value.

3. Once you have everything else fixed, you'll probably want to increase the
buffer size to be greater than 1024

4. The current JavaScriptAudioNode implementation is ignoring the 3rd
argument to createJavaScriptNode(), so it's expecting stereo output.  That
  explains why you only hear output on the left channel.

Cheers,
Chris
