Course to Learn to Code Electronic Music Tools with Javascript

FutureLearn

In this course, you will build a range of electronic music tools using the Javascript language and the Web Audio API. You will be shown line by line how to program interactive synthesizers, drum machines and even algorithmic music systems that can generate music automatically. You will also be shown how to develop user interfaces with knobs, sliders and other elements. The music software and user interfaces you make will run in any web browser that supports the Web Audio API, including Safari iOS and Chrome on Android. At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • implement sound synthesis using the Web Audio API
  • build a drum machine that can play back drum samples in rhythmic patterns
  • describe the key components of computer music software
  • design user interfaces that allow non-coders to use your electronic music software
  • use algorithmic music techniques to generate music automatically using probability and rules
