I feel that ambient made with these gadgets turns anything into disposable music.

1. No warmth, no nostalgia from old soundbanks (Why Steve Roach still utilizes the Emu, Oberheim, Nord Lead, Wavestation?) and not an ipad?

2. Hardware is made as a whole, including the DAC character, I doubt anything software for ipad will survive 30 + years, back to 1. (repeat often).

3. Larger screen is 15 inches up, anything smaller for any kind of production is counterproductive.

Thanks again to all the dishwasher contributors!!

I took all your fine compositions and made a 20 minute low light mix.

The pieces flow together nicely, which makes sense because they are all based on the sound source.  This whole project/experiment was a lot of fun and it exemplifies why this forum is still a great place to hang out even after all these years.  Thanks!   :)

00:00    Dishwasher original sound
00:17    Dave Michuda - Dishwasher Stretch
01:00    Forrest Fang - Dave's Dishwasher(Zen Cycle)
02:42    AXX - Dishwasher Drone AXX Rework
05:15    Igneous Flame - Chthonic Cycles
09:25    Castleview - Cavewasher
11:20    The Circular Ruins - The Circular Ruins Over Dave's Dishwasher
15:00    Dave Michuda - Dishwasher Stretch part 2
16:55    Seren Ffordd - Rin-Se
20:43    end

Here are the links to all the pieces used in the mix in order of appearance...

Finally got around to listening to this, really great work, added to my wish list, and need to check out your other releases at some point :)

Thank you, everyone. :-)

Jesse, someday I want to visit your studio. Looks like a wonderfully creative space. :-)

I like the AXX version, very tonal almost pastoral (considering the source recording !), while still preserving the rhythm.

'Rin-Se' is cool too, more 'Icy', abstracted and stark. The rhythm being more mysterious on this one.

This kind of reminds me of my assignments at Uni, on the electroacoustic music modules, where we had to make a composition from 'sounds from the kitchen', it was remarkable how different they all turned out.

I posted this on the RM Ning sometime ago and got a good response, so I thought I'd do the same here.

Firstly, I should say I'm referring to iPad's here, not iOS devices in general - the larger screen is a bit of a must for my eyesight. I'II admit, I used to think iPads were just toys and I had little time for Apple as a company (I still think that now), but I've been quite amazed as to whats going on in the musical world with iOS. I tried mobile music making on a (fairly weedy) android tablet, but with the latency it had, it was virtually useless, I wasted some money on apps that weren't able to do anything decent.

Anyway, about six months ago, I bought an iPad 4 off a friend and he suggested a good slew of apps to get started with. I sold that on and I've now got an iPad Air2 and an Air (both 64GB models) and oodles of music apps. I actually haven't started a project in earnest, but I'm getting there :) I've had to adapt to Apples's rather cryptic approach to file management / transfer, which has been quite a learning curve in itself. In general I'm amassing the knowledge to create a different way of working on these devices.

Personally, I now feel it 's a great platform for music making, am interested to hear other people's thoughts / experiences - particulalrly with regard to ambient music.

I know some of you are in the same age group, so the new "Thunderbirds Are Go" is quite frankly, a hoot.

Here's the new intro:
