Audio Recorder
A React Component using the Web Audio API to record, save, and play audio.

Demo & Examples

Live demo:


The easiest way to use react-audio-recorder is to install it from NPM and include it in your own React build process (using Webpack, Browserify, etc). You can also use the standalone build by including dist/AudioRecorder.min.js in your page. If you use this, make sure you have already included React, and it is available as a global variable. ``` npm install react-audio-recorder --save ```


The <AudioRecorder> component can be instantiated with no properties to act as a simple client-side recorder/downloader. onChange is called when a recording is finished, with the audio data passed as a blob. ``` import React as from 'react'; import AudioRecorder from 'react-audio-recorder'; ``` For more detailed usage examples, see the live demo.

This component is intended for use with short sounds only, such as speech samples and sound effects. The WAV encoder is not offloaded to a service worker, to make this component more portable. It is not space efficient either, recording at 1411kbps (16 bit stereo), so long recordings will drain the system of memory.


Because of its usage of the Web Audio API, react-audio-recorder is not compatible with any version of Internet Explorer (Edge is compatible).


To use the typescript watcher, run npm run dev.
