Chapter 8. Conclusion

Thanks for reading this book on the Web Audio API. If you are a digital-audio novice, I hope that I have succeeded in giving you a solid understanding of some of the fundamental concepts. If you are a Web Audio API enthusiast, hopefully you learned something new.

Before closing, I would like to point you to a number of excellent books and web resources that I found extremely interesting and useful while researching and writing this book. My top five follow:
