audiobuffer-loader

Simple function to load and decode soundfiles using the Web Audio API. Supported filetypes are determined by the Web Audio API.

install

npm install audiobuffer-loader

usage

Loading a file requires an AudioContext, and results in an object containing both the decoded AudioBuffer and the size of the file that was loaded.

import { loadAudioBuffer } from 'audiobuffer-loader';
 
const context = new AudioContext();
 
loadAudioBuffer(context, 'samples/orbit.mp3').then(result => {
  // result.audioBuffer
  // result.fileSize
});
 

Optionally, you can add a callback as the 3rd parameter to track the loading progress.

loadAudioBuffer(context, 'samples/orbit.mp3', progress => {
  // use progress
})

Note that this callback will not be fired at all during decoding (which happens after a file is loaded). This may not be noticable for smaller files, but when you have files containing many minutes of audio the progress will not change for a while.

errors

The returned promise will be rejected when loading or decoding fails.
