I spent 4 days in Pittsburgh in early June attending the 2009 NIME conference at Carnegie Mellon University.
Between the tutorials, Jitter Recipes, and all of the example content, there are many Jitter patches floating around that each do one thing pretty well, but very few of them give a sense of how to scale up into a more complex system.
Imagining New Environments with Max/MSP/Jitter When you think of multimedia technology you think mostly about the technology.
These days it seems that everyone wants to be an artist so I found it refreshing to meet someone who see himself as an engineer that wanted to create tools for artists.
Those of you who are paying close attention already know that Max 5 includes a database that manages all the files in the search path and makes handy things like the File Browser possible.
Last week, Siggraph 2008 took over the Los Angeles Convention Center, and Cycling '74 was there to bravely represent Jitter to a huge crowd of CG enthusiasts, production professionals, and academics.
Recently, CNMAT at UC Berkeley held their annual MaxMSP/Jitter summer school classes at their beautiful Arch St.
Recently I bumped into composer and performer Pauline Oliveros (PO) in San Diego.
Introduction Sometimes when you are programming, you need to be able to configure some information about how your computer will do its job.
By Marsha Vdovin There's something about the kind of mind that looks for something beyond presets and conventional loops.
Typically, when I talk to Jitter users about writing one's own shader programs for use with jit.gl.slab, I usually get glazed-over eyes and this sort of distant look of wonder.
So you want to move data between two or more computers in real time.
Many people already know that Jitter can be a fantastic tool for video processing, but what about audio? Used with a bit of cleverness, a matrix can be just the thing for that patching impasse.
The second installment of Jitter Recipes is a collection of simple examples that began as weekly posts to the MaxMSP mailing list.
So, you've finished the tutorials, you understand the basics of digital audio, and you can imagine using a jitter matrix for something.
