Description Olivier Thereaux 2013-04-02 15:08:37 UTC
Per discussion at Audio WG f2f 2013-03-26

There is a use case for shared audio buffer between audioContexts: a large sample library, for instance, should be sharable and not re-(down)loaded in memory for each context.
Comment 1 Chris Rogers 2013-04-05 21:52:39 UTC
The text "An AudioBuffer may be used by one or more AudioContexts." already exists in the AudioBuffer section.
Comment 2 Olivier Thereaux 2013-04-25 15:34:20 UTC
Indeed. Seeing no objection, closing.
