War Machine Web Audio App is Released

War Machine is a Web Audio App created with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. The App uses the Web Audio API to create a sample pad interface reminiscent of an Akai MPC. Despite the name, the purpose of War Machine is not to promote violence, but rather to create a safe (victimless) environment for the release of excess aggression.

* Keep in mind you need Chrome for this web app to work!

This web app allows you to release excess aggression by triggering various sounds of war in your browser. Trigger the sounds by clicking any of the twelve sample pads. Each pad flashes red when clicked. Because the Web Audio API loads the samples into a buffer, if the same pad is pressed more than once rapidly, multiple instances of the same audio sample will play.

If you find yourself still feeling stressed out after assaulting the pads relentlessly for two or three minutes, perhaps you might be better off trying my Virtual Kalimba or my Virtual Hang instead.
