For developers

Additionally, Mozilla elaborates in a developer document:

“Enter AudioWorklet. An audio context’s audio worklet is a Worklet which runs off the main thread, executing audio processing code added to it by calling the context’s audioWorklet.addModule() method. Calling addModule() loads the specified JavaScript file, which should contain the implementation of the audio processor. With the processor registered, you can create a new AudioWorkletNode which passes the audio through the processor’s code when the node is linked into the chain of audio nodes along with any other audio nodes.”
