It is hard to imagine a guitarist without any amplifier or guitar cabinet. Even more without any speakers, an electric guitar is hard to hear even at home. Today I want to show how to emulate guitar cabinet using Web Audio API. It is possible to recreate a sound made by top brand amp without the investment of thousands of dollars using convolution.
Modern Web becomes more and more powerful, especially with APIs giving developers access to hardware. One of such API – Web Audio. It gives you a set of low-level features to generate or process music right in your browser. Today I want to show you how to connect your electric guitar 🎸 (or any other electric instrument with wire connection, ex. bass) in a browser and control its volume level.
