Ready to make more beats at work?
Steve Goldberg, the musician and software developer behind Resistor, built a Roland Juno-106, an ’80s synthesizer, for your browser.
He built it in Javascript, using the WebAUDIO and WebMIDI APIs, and Marionette.js, a set of tools that add functionality to front end framework Backbone.js (some Philly developers have contributed to Marionette.js and other tools related to Backbone.js).
Goldberg, 30, lives in Fishtown and works at the Jenkintown office of Australian cybersecurity firmĀ Nuix.
