MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:


The ChannelSplitterNode() constructor creates a new ChannelSplitterNode object instance.


var myWave = new ChannelSpitterNode(context, options);


A BaseAudioContext representing the audio context you want the node to be associated with.
options Optional
A ChannelSplitterOptions dictionary object defining the properties you want the ChannelSplitterNode to have (It also inherits the options defined in the AudioNodeOptions dictionary):
  • numberOfOutputs: A number defining the number of inputs the ChannelSplitterNode should have. If not specified, the default value used is 6.


var ac = new AudioContext();

var options = {
  numberOfOutputs : 2 

var mySplitter = new ChannelSplitterNode(ac, options);


Specification Status Comment
Web Audio API
The definition of 'ChannelSplitterNode' in that specification.
Working Draft
