Node Audioworklet

Node Audioworklet is a NodeJS lib exposing a set of function to output audio on an audio card. It uses cubeb to support a wide variety of OS and configuration (details). It only handle raw PCM frames that should be set into a Buffer for every frame. A timestamped audio buffer is used to transmit the raw data to the OS audio system, this can be used to precisely time when the audio samples will be outputted.

Look in the tests/ folder for more informations about the options available in the lib.

This project has been built mainly for Soundsync.

Installation

npm install --save audioworklet

Or

yarn add audioworklet

Example

List devices

const { AudioServer } = require('audioworklet');
 
const audioServer = new AudioServer();
 
const logDevice = (device) => {
  console.log('---------------');
  for (let prop in device) {
    console.log(`${prop}:`, device[prop]);
  }
}
 
(async () => {
  await soundio.refreshDevices();
 
  soundio.getDevices().outputDevices.forEach(logDevice);
  soundio.getDevices().inputDevices.forEach(logDevice);
 
  console.log('-------')
 
  console.log('default output:', soundio.getDefaultOutputDevice().name);
  console.log('default input:', soundio.getDefaultInputDevice().name);
  console.log('API:', soundio.getApi());
})()

Will output:

Requirements for source build

Most regular installs will support prebuilds that are built with each release, this is required if you want to develop with.

  • Node version that support N-API 4 and up (N-API Node Version Matrix)
  • CMake
  • A proper C/C++ compiler toolchain of the given platform
    • Windows:
    • Unix/Posix:
      • Clang or GCC
      • Ninja or Make (Ninja will be picked if both present)
      • Alsa and/or Pulseaudio libs (on ubuntu, it can be installed with apt-get install -y libasound2-dev libpulse-dev)
