This to me is the crux of the matter. We have been speaking to people at different ends of a spectrum - fairly senior web developers with a good command of javascript who tend to think that it is rather complicated to do simple things with the API, and music/DSP experts lamenting that anything "interesting" can only be done with custom javascript in our ScriptProcessorNode - arguably the least well-defined and implemented of the lot.

Our group so far seems to think that the balance we struck for a v1 is appropriate, with significant scope for a v2 to enable more/better custom audio processing. The question is neither "one or the other" but when we want to focus on the different use cases.
