fuck it, I'm releasing my databending drum machine TONIGHT

make drum loops with percussive samples procedurally generated from opus codec glitches!~ 🥁💥💻

I completely forgot the showcase the save and load feature.

basically, you can save a drum pattern to a string and load it later, or share it

here's an example:


here's another I just made:



@SuricrasiaOnline god i wanna know how this works. like i wont understand any of it but i would still watch like a ~20 minute video explaining it nontheless

@SuricrasiaOnline I fucking love this, this is so much fun!

I came up with this and I love it: [“dance”,66,118,[[1,17,0],[26,768,5],[66,4096,1]],[[-1,-28,0],[83,6,2],[66,8,90]]]

@matthew woah this is awesome, sounds like trailer music for a horror movie

@SuricrasiaOnline neat


@SuricrasiaOnline one more


@SuricrasiaOnline Nice! Here's what I made:


@SuricrasiaOnline coffee cup coffee cup


@SuricrasiaOnline crunchy :blobnomcookie:


@SuricrasiaOnline I have already made a ripoff of the intro to Blue Monday, this thing rules

@SuricrasiaOnline holy shit this is cool

The preset: [["lesbian","trans","gay"],99,115,[[132,16384,0],[133,4096,5],[173,256,0],[101,1025,0],[221,256,0],[221,256,0],[230,257,0],[240,4096,10],[240,64,0],[241,20,7],[101,0,7],[251,256,0],[173,64,7],[285,4112,0],[285,1024,5],[1,256,7],[7,17408,10],[7,68,5],[22,16,0],[22,64,7],[60,257,0],[65,257,0],[68,4160,0],[99,257,0],[99,257,0],[68,92,7]],[[-1,0,0]]]

With a couple of hours fucking around:

music stuff 

@SuricrasiaOnline ["cat",73,90,[[1,21845,0],[2,4240,0],[0,4096,7],[3,43690,0],[7,129,0],[19,2324,0],[18,64,0],[22,257,0],[23,9216,5],[32,4369,0]],[[-1,0,20]]]

Made a bit of a jam out of it, not very good but it's something

music stuff 

@maris @SuricrasiaOnline I like it, and it has cat in it! 😁

@SuricrasiaOnline That’s really cool. [["89","MAMOTH","BUN","GAZ","METH","BEER","VOL","GAYA"],42,105,[[142,4624,11],[242,577,11],[342,260,8],[442,61717,7],[542,4096,0],[642,257,10],[742,336,5]],[[-1,20,0]]]

@SuricrasiaOnline is it possible to load the libopus.wasm from a local file, so one could use the drum machine while offline?

@tethre unfortunately you will probably need to host a local server to use it offline (I use `python -m http.server`)

RE: last boost (see thread)

Dunno why I hadn't seen that browser drum machine before, but it's really neat.

I rarely get round to making wiki pages for all the fun browser tools like that, maybe I'll do a forum thread so they don't just rot in my bookmarks...

@SuricrasiaOnline I have given the link to a friend who will probably play around with this 🥰

@SuricrasiaOnline Heard back from him and he liked it. Says it has that Atari feeling 🙂
