This is more of a share and tell story then an actual question. I felt at least here this would be more appreciated then say... at my local coffee shop. I'm sure those girls are just being polite when I ramble on about my hobby.
Like most people, my iPod has become a necessary part of life. I need my music just about everywhere I go. So when I was begrudgingly forcing myself to do laundry I happened to see my iPod sitting at the bottom of my washer. I immediatley got a terrible heavy and sick feeling inside my stomach, like what happens when I watch Top Gun and Maverick is yelling "Goose! Oh No! No!"
I stuck it infront of a fan to dry it out, hoping that it may still work, when after an hour or so I hear this weirdest sound. I get a bit freaked out because I've never heard it before in my apartment, and at first I couldn't tell where it was comming from. When I did finaly realize it was my iPod, I resigned myself to the fact that this was the end and my iPod was officialy dying.
After sinking into a state of mourning for a few minutes, my natural instincts kicked in. I grabed my ipod away from the fan, set it on the counter, grabed my trusty M10, and hit the shiny red button.
I have a few ideas of how I'm going to implement this sound in a couple of my next projects. It would also be fun to layer it in with some electircal sparks or maybe under a fire. I also heard some nice static for tv channel changing in there. What do you think of this sound? where would you want to use it?
Also, seeing as I don't recommend sacrificing your iPod to capture this, I'm willing to send out the original 24bit 96k recording to anyone who might find a good use for it.
P.S. Oh, the iPod still will play music, but the screen doesn't light up, and the control wheel might work if your rough with it.
