Beautifully done. WebAudio is, like, real now!

Bloody hell — the USB MIDI just worked under Chrome on Ubuntu Linux! Linux and MIDI seldom play together easily, so this is joyful.

Now if this were done entirely in CSS... :-) (reference: http://silon.slaks.net/)

Anyway, most totally cool!

Updated so you can share the patches you create: For Example

Also Chrome 43 is the stable version now and includes WebMIDI, yaaay

I need to play with this more but I love it.

Just pushed a new update:

You can now map every control to any MIDI CC message, so you can play and tweak with your hardware controller. It supports 7-bit or 14-bit CCs for those smooth filter sweeps. Your mappings will be remembered per-input, so you can have multiple mappings for multiple devices, and your last-used device is loaded by default when you bring up the page.

Super cool. The "release" envelope slider doesn't seem to do anything for me though? (Firefox 38 on Ubuntu 14.04)

Hey en forme de poire, that's a bug in Firefox. I heard it was fixed in one of the more recent Firefox builds, but I haven't confirmed.
