In October I wrote about the Flash 10 sound API from the point of view of audio file formats, reading the event as
pure AJAX audio formats are now a reality. I said that
innovation related to audio file formats was over in about 1998 and that the ability to do audio hacking in the browser would restart it, leading to the appearance of
freaky Big Daddy Roth audio files with chromed metadata [and] embedded blenders.
The Hobnox Audiotool in-browser digital audio workstation that *I described as
an amazing and wonderful piece of work is made possible by the Flash 10 sound API. And you could indeed think of it as a kustomized and hot rodded version of the MP3.
