Google Chrome Musiclab so you can make music in your browser
Google Chrome Musiclab has been launched so that you can make music and experiment with it in your browser if the mood hits you.
The Google Chrome Musiclab is a neat collection of interactive browser instruments. The site makes uses of Web Audio API that is able to turn your browser into an instrument.
You will also be able to make use of various tools that assist you in learning the basics behind rhythm, chords, harmonics, and arpeggios.
The Google Chrome Musiclab forms part of the American ‘Music In Our Schools’ month. However the site is not only limited to kids, you can play too if you are interested.
It features an interactive spectrogram alongside the educationally geared tools. The spectrogram is an abstract Kandinsky-inspired sequencer and tool that lets you record and ‘spin’ your own vocals that you feed through the mic on your laptop.
The Google Chrome Musiclab portrays the newest kind of browser tech that highlights the power of the Web Audio API.
In 2015 they added MIDI support to Google Chrome. Also the Music Lab’s instruments offers open-source code to help you create your own experiments.
In a statement share by the Google Chrome Musiclab site, this is what they said:
“Recently it’s become possible to create, analyze, and visualize music right in the browser without any plug-ins. Here’s a look at some of the tech we’re using.
Music is for everyone. So this year for Music In Our Schools month, we wanted to make learning music a bit more accessible to everyone by using technology that’s open to everyone: the web. Chrome Music Lab is a collection of experiments that let anyone, at any age, explore how music works. They’re collaborations between musicians and coders, all built with the freely available Web Audio API. These experiments are just a start. Check out each experiment to find open-source code you can use to build your own.”
