BaseAudioContext.createBiquadFilter()

The createBiquadFilter() method of the BaseAudioContext interface creates a BiquadFilterNode, which represents a second order filter configurable as several different common filter types.

Note: The BiquadFilterNode() constructor is the recommended way to create a BiquadFilterNode; see Creating an AudioNode.

Syntax

createBiquadFilter()

Parameters

None.

Return value

Examples

The following example shows basic usage of an AudioContext to create a Biquad filter node. For a complete working example, check out our voice-change-o-matic demo (look at the source code too).

const audioCtx = new AudioContext();

//set up the different audio nodes we will use for the app
const analyser = audioCtx.createAnalyser();
const distortion = audioCtx.createWaveShaper();
const gainNode = audioCtx.createGain();
const biquadFilter = audioCtx.createBiquadFilter();
const convolver = audioCtx.createConvolver();

// connect the nodes together

source = audioCtx.createMediaStreamSource(stream);
source.connect(analyser);
analyser.connect(distortion);
distortion.connect(biquadFilter);
biquadFilter.connect(convolver);
convolver.connect(gainNode);
gainNode.connect(audioCtx.destination);

// Manipulate the Biquad filter

biquadFilter.type = "lowshelf";
biquadFilter.frequency.setValueAtTime(1000, audioCtx.currentTime);
biquadFilter.gain.setValueAtTime(25, audioCtx.currentTime);
