I think it sounds awesome and could definitely be the future of audio.
I wonder if people like Apple will take interest and start working on the hardware side to add chips to iPads, Macs etc.

One question I have though is what happens if you have code that uses heavily optimised linear algebra with Eigen or Mkl or whatever, are they going to reimplement BLAS, because that is some serious ubdertaking.

So basically OpenGL Shader Language, except for audio.

Will be great if they can pull it off. Let's just hope that it won't get fractured with one Apple version, one UAD version, one Steinberg version...

Interesting, until 27:39 - massive audio/video glitch! A real 'Screams & Pulls off headphones' moment - (Windows 10/Chrome)

If there is anything interesting in this idea, video presentations do not really present it. All that we can see is that it's a shader. Longer code examples would be much better and if there is a prototype that we can start experimenting with, it would be even better.
