flash10sound 20090325 Generating sound in Flash 10

One of the new features to make it into Flash 10 is the ability to generate software-based audio. There’s essentially an event callback that will trigger during audio playback that lets you fill an input buffer full of wavelength samples. I’m looking forward to seeing what types of generative music folks will be able to create with this.

gotoAndLearn has a quick introduction to the topic that lets you tweak a waveform based on mouse position (shown above), and Andy Hulstkamp has a quick rundown on the basics of generating and modulating a specific tone. If you’re a Flash hacker, go make some bleeps and blips and send us a link to your algorythmic creations in the comments.
