Deep Note is THX's highly-recognizable audio logo played before a movie starts. It was created by Dr. James A. Moorer, a computer and audio engineer at Lucasfilm, on top of his own Audio Signal Processor. Question is: can we recreate it in JavaScript? In the past year or so a number of details about what went into Deep Note were uncovered. And many of these fascinating little details ("just" tuning, pitching a sample to create 30 voices, etc) are a perfect way to explore what the current WebAudio API has to offer.
