There's a synthesiser in your browser. Here's how to use it.

"Table of contents and links below! You may or may not already know this, but modern browsers contain powerful tools for manipulating audio. In this video, I'm giving you a brief (and imcomplete!) overview what's possible regarding sound synthesis, take a look at what other people created and try to build a small hardware synth using the Raspberry PI.

Table of contents:

00:00 Introduction
00:38 demonstration of my own small JavaScript synth
02:51 webaudio API (application programmers' interface) overview
05:44 some examples from the web...
05:59 semi-modular virtual analog synth
06:54 acid machine (fun 303 / 808 emulator and sequencer)
07:55 juno 106 emulation
09:28 websynths (this one is worth trying, definitely!)
10:28 comparing Firefox to Edge/Chromium
12:44 is this any useful for musicians?
13:15 trying to build a RasPi hardware synth with this (epic fail)
14:17 bye-bye :-)
