"Samples don't work" - by Anonymous on 15-JUL-2013

I wanted to learn this and to like this tool, but the samples on the website don't work, play no sound at all, and don't have error messages of any kind to indicate lack of browser support.  It seems to be an unsupported tool.

However, explanations are quite good, so may be worthwhile once web audio api comes to firefox and mobile.
