MDN wants to learn about developers like you:


This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The cancelAndHoldAtTime() property of the AudioParam interface cancels all scheduled future changes to the AudioParam but holds its value at a given time until further changes are made using other methods. The new value is given in the value parameter.


var audioParam = AudioParam.cancelAndHoldAtTime(cancelTime)


A double representing the time (in seconds) after the AudioContext was first created after which all scheduled changes will be cancelled.

Return value

A reference to the AudioParam it was called on.
