Welcome to Instant Audio Processing with Web Audio. In this book, we'll explore Web Audio's capabilities through a series of step-by-step recipes. As we progress through the recipes, we'll construct a reusable audio layer which can be reused in other Web Audio applications.
We'll need to set up a web server to host our Web Audio recipes, because we will be exploring Web Audio's audio file manipulation capabilities. Loading of the audio files rely on AJAX and AJAX-only functions reliably when the said audio files are served by a web host. Ergo, we'll need a web host for the recipes.
If we don't yet have a web server set up, this recipe will help us do just that.
