iPad app I played a (small) part in making is out today: The Final Hours of Tomb Raider.

Specifically, I built the section where you can mix your own game sound track - all built using the Web Audio API!

You can get the app here: http://www.appstore.com/thefinalhoursoftombraider

Ah, nice! Will take a look thanks. I've had this knocking round in a personal project for a while now, but only just got round to releasing it as a component :)

Thought I would post this here if of interest to anyone starting out with Web Audio - I just published a small synth toy to the Chrome Web Store (just a small app I made for fun).

Source code is all here: https://github.com/alexgibson/wavepad

This is a nice toy but the sound is a bit clicky? Also, if I click and drag outside of the synth pad, cursor does not "release" itself but instead keeps playing (perhaps this is by design).

Wow.
Scuba Diver Life originally shared:
 
The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world. The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long.
