p5.js | createAudio() Function

The createAudio() function is used to create an audio element in the DOM. The audio is created as a p5.MediaElement, which has methods for controlling the media and its playback.

Syntax:

createAudio(src, callback)

Parameters: This function accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • src: It is a string or an array of strings that specified path of the audio file. The array of strings can be used to specify multiple paths for the support of various browsers.
