A container for all audio nodes in the Web Audio API graph.
The number of bits allocated for each value in an audio data stream.
The number of bits per second that a compressed audio file will output.
A logarithmic unit of measure used for musical intervals. Twelve-tone equal temperament divides the octave into 12 semitones of 100 cents each.
What happens to an audio wave when it exceeds the highest permitted value (0 dBFS).
A relative unit used to measure the intensity of a sound signal.
Sound level relative to the full scale (nominally 0 dBFS). This unit is negative unless sound is being clipped.
Sound pressure level relative to the threshold of human hearing.
Fast Fourier Transform, an algorithm for breaking a sound wave up into its constituent sine waves.
A measure of frequency. The number of times per second that something happens.
Half of the sample rate of an audio buffer.
Pulse code modulation, a way of storing sound waves as an array of numbers.
The speed at which an audio buffer is played back.
The number of times per second that an analog sound is sampled during quantization, or the process of converting an analog signal into a digital one.
