Please note that the recordings on Zoom are Dual Mono and not Stereo - some pre-recorded sessions have been uploaded to YouTube to preserve the independent dual channel audio, but some sessions may still be affected.

Gridsound is a web-based digital audio workstation. We started the project back in 2015 in an attempt to play with the Web Audio API.

Since then, we realized its potential and decided to push the software beyond as a HTML5 DAW.
In this talk, we will discuss how we built the app and the possibilities the Web Audio API offers but also the limits and issues we ran into and how we have or will face it.

As we think about using Web Assembly, we will also talk about the place of this technology to complete our DAW.
