    AudioContext.currentTime

    The currentTime property of the AudioContext interface returns a double representing an ever-increasing hardware timestamp in seconds that can be used for scheduling audio playback, visualizing timelines, etc. It starts at 0 and cannot be stopped, paused or reset.

    Syntax

    var audioCtx = new AudioContext();
    console.log(audioCtx.currentTime);

    Value

    A double.

    Example

    Note: for a full Web Audio example implementation, see one of our Web Audio Demos on the MDN Github repo, like panner-node. Try entering audioCtx.currentTime into your browser console.

    var AudioContext = window.AudioContext || window.webkitAudioContext;
    var audioCtx = new AudioContext();
    // Older webkit/blink browsers require a prefix
    
    ...
    
    console.log(audioCtx.currentTime);
