Comment on Getting Audio Visualizations working with Web Audio API:

Hi Max,

Make sure you aren’t connecting the AnalyserNode to your BaseAudioContext’s destination.

In some examples you find online, you might see a line like this:

1analyser.connect(audioCtx.destination);

Avoid that!

If you’re still hearing feedback/echoing after getting a media stream from getUserMedia, you might want to try specifying echoCancellation/noiseSuppression in yourMediaStreamConstraints config object like this:

1const config = {
2    video: false,
3    audio: {
4        deviceId: audioDevices.value,
5        autoGainControl: true,
6        echoCancellation: true,
7        noiseSuppression: true
8    }
9};
Comment on TikTok reaches deal to sell U.S. operations to Oracle, rejects Microsoft's plan:

The Verge published an today titled Oracle’s TikTok deal accomplishes nothing:

But the last-minute sale is strange in a number of ways — for a start, it’s not a sale at all. After months of insistence that TikTok sever its US operations from Chinese ownership, we’re now settling for a vague partnership between Oracle and the US TikTok operation. It’s still unclear exactly what Oracle’s “trusted tech partner” status entails, but it’s definitively not a sale, and it’s unlikely Oracle is taking over any significant operations from the US TikTok offices. Microsoft’s version of the deal would have severed American TikTok from Europe and Asia entirely, but Oracle’s version of the deal leaves it mostly intact. US TikTok will stay the same as Korean TikTok and Nigerian TikTok; it’s just getting an extra babysitter. That makes it less of a sale and more of a glorified hosting deal. It lets Trump say he’s solved the problem but doesn’t do much else.
