So, for those who are interested in standards...
Are the "Web Audio API" and the "Audio Data API" the same?

here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Audio_Data_API

anybody, the Audio Group are currently in Incubation mode at the W3C, and
all the specs to this point are, by nature: "suggestions". I am excited that

this puts us in a great strategic position for the future, as we can already
begin to identify what works, how people will use the API, and so on.

I am looking forward to seeing the Webkit API land cross-platform, as it

Hi Everybody,

I'd like to announce that Google Chrome now supports the Web Audio API.

I could remind that the other web audio API is available
