Trying to create a kind of music visualizer that will draw graphics a user can then touch-manipulate in some way.
Help– its basically the main point of my project! Really just need to be able to play music on the ipad and call on different aspects of a song.
Thanks–urgent!27. June 2016 at 19:26 #1381audiocommanderKeymaster
I’m currently on the way and typing on my mobile, but I can provide you with some infos about alternatives the next days if that would be helpful. (IIRC there should also be an older topic about this here)

Thanks so much for the response.
Yes, any sort of information of how to add separate audio files in any way to then display / hear them on a iPad would be incredibly helpful.
Processing.JS could work too!28. June 2016 at 13:57 #1383audiocommanderKeymaster
Looking at the latest developments of Java and its removal from all major browsers (that used to run as Java Applets) and the recent patent issues raised by Oracle, I think it’s safe to assume that Java (and thus Processing) is about to become obsolete.
Based on these facts, here are a couple of links/resources that should help you getting on the right track with audio:
1) previous forum topic: http://www.audiocommander.de/blog/forums/topic/what-to-use-instead-of-processing-minim-lib/
2) question on Stackoverflow with a link to a possible alternative for minim to be used with processing.js
(that might be the quickest option to just “make it work” quickly, by adding minim.js to your sketch resources)
However, that would mean rewriting large parts of your code, but will be future forward and have better performance.
In general, audio support is much better on the latest browser platforms from simple Audio playback to the quite complex and advanced HTML5 WebAudio API.
Hope this helps,
