JSAP: A Plugin Standard for the Web Audio API with Intelligent Functionality

Document Thumbnail

In digital audio, software plugins are commonly used to implement audio effects and synthesizers, and integrate them with existing software packages. While these plugins have a number of clearly defined formats, a common standard has not been developed for the web, utilizing the Web Audio API. In this paper we present a standard framework that defines the plugin structure and host integration of a plugin. The project facilitates a novel method of cross-adaptive processing where features are transmitted between plugin instances instead of audio routing, saving on multiple calculations of features. The format also enables communication and processing of semantic data with a host server for the collection and utilization of the data to facilitate intelligent music production decisions.
