Jitter Patches used @ MemeFactory

Monday, March 30th, 2009

After the jump you’ll find the jitter patches I used to make the Me Doing Nothing videos and Advice Dog pictures from Memefactory. Things you will be missing: 5 30 video clips of Magibon doing nothing & the Oh! Exploitable! pic of Advice Dog.


But what does it all meme?

Memefactory was a great success. Time to start working on Hannah Complex for next month.

Monome Done!

It’s done. Let’s recap what it took:

  • Almost a year.
  • Two soldering irons (more related to time than anything else)
  • One piece, custom milled Walnut enclosure, designed and produced by Mr. Guy Snover
  • 64 low-intensity blue LEDs
  • Some very careful drilling
  • Some even more careful sanding (the button pcb had defects I had to fix)
  • Lots of love

Can’t wait to do it again and improve on the design. Next one has an accelerometer, smarter more ergonomic enclosure (for rolling!) and might be wireless. We’ll see. Either way… it’s gonna be tons of fun using this little guy in my upcoming Max patches.

Like every other cool kid on the block I’ve been trying my hand at datamoshing. The steps are many, and involve using shitty software, which I always feel a little skeptical about. Some dudes on the interwebs are trying to suss out a way to do this kind of thing in real time… which would be nice. I’ll be surprised if it works out, though.

What follows are two really simple experiments I did, hoping to figure out a way to use datamoshing to make nice, subtle video instead of a glitchy mess. I would describe them as being “almost partially successful”.

Ok. I think this is the final version. And It’s a rat’s nest, so be careful! Written in Max5 / Jitter 1.7

You’ll probably need some aftermarket externals… Llong is the only one that comes right to mind but there might be others. You can get them from

I owe a huge debt to these dudes.
