What is Web Audio API?

According to HTML5Rocks “ The Web Audio API is a high-level JavaScript API for processing and synthesizing audio in web applications. The goal of this API is to include capabilities found in modern game audio engines and some of the mixing, processing, and filtering tasks that are found in modern desktop audio production applications. What follows is a gentle introduction to using this powerful API.”

At present Webkit based browsers like Opera, Safari and Google Chrome ( since Blink is also based on Webkit) supports Web Audio API, Internet Explorer is not.
