since I’m diving deeper into Cthulhu-inspired games with my ICRPG table group, I was looking for a way to improve the ambience. Music has been a huge tool for me since I started out tabletop gaming, but having a single track isn’t always what I’m looking for. I wanted to blend multiple audio things on the fly, like ambience noises (rain, wind, squeaking floor, pub noises etc.) and “tone” stuff (like old timey music, tension-filled stuff or combat music).
So I created a simple, html-based, 2-channel audio mixer, runnable in a browser (e.g. on a tablet device or even a smartphone).
(WIP, free to use, share and modify).
Or save-as this file: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cgloeckner/html-audio-mixer/main/index.html
How to Use: Download the file and run it (preferably with Firefox for best functionality, I had issues with the default chrome browser) on your tablet. Add music to the channels, adjust the balance slider and go!
Technical detail: Feel free to place it on any webhoster for easier use. It’s a single file setup without any dependencies, besides an internet connection for the jQuery library, but this could be hacked to work offline as well. No server, no database etc. needed. Things are handled in your browser and nowhere else.
It’s just a tiny tool, which I can’t wait to use on my next table game.
