The app uses SharpDX's XAudio2 to playback stereo wave samples of piano notes. The wav files can have their frequency shifted to different octaves. I created a SoundVoice pool to play sounds simultaneously while not taxing the system. Sound recordings are serialized and stored in LocalStorage for playback later. I will be adding a export and sharing feature in the near future.
