With the effort to fully acidized....adding root note and so on, it must
very labor intensive, But my God, this Cd is miles better than Sonic's 3
newest! I received "Headstrong Groves and Machine Language as well this
week... and Jason's (a cool guy) Scratch Tactics is good, but nothing to
compare with your stuff. Yours is the BEST! Not much Sonic has com out
is any better. Maybe Beatnik or Flying Fish should be passing out your
stuff. Beatniks GOA-Trance is a 9. Bijorn Lynn's Top Production Samples is
an 8. Jason Donnelly's stuff and Sonic's is a 7, and your stuff is off the
scale!!! Flying Fish still sells the worn out Norman Cook and Cold Cut
Stuff for $99.95!
So much for all of that. It does not state so on your Cd, but I assume
samples are license free?
I record under several names. Niko-Jumbie or Mokojumbie mostly. I hope to
have releases on Ibiza Records, Spain and Sprite Zone, Germany (on
>compilations) Later this summer...Intense personal music... And, I may be
teaming up with Yainna katsoulos ( a new wave vocal hit in Europe 10
ago) to do some gooey cheese Trance(so called)stuff that may make some
Anyway, keep up the great work!!!
I thought you might want to hear my first
song using your cd. The cd is awesome and I am glad you have some long
loops to make ambient music. The pads in here are super!!! You have done a
great job. I just wish their were more pads that go more than 30 seconds.
I hope to make some more using your cd and I have many ideas to use these
sounds with. This song doesn't have a mp3 file---I'm just streaming it for
now since it's more of a demo for my first cd. If you could make another
one just like this, but with real long pads for great soundscapes I will
be the first one to buy. Also--I wish you had more of them classical
sounds on here--they rock, but there weren't enough to make me happy---I
want more of them awesome sounds that you have in here. Kudos to you

Hi Rich - The CD arrived
yesterday morning -The case was all busted up due to
inadequate packing - and I was very dissapointed to realise that it was
'production' product but that it was a 'copy' onto a domestic CD, and the
inserts were scanned copies. -Man, I was really pissed - "ripped of again"
thought.....................BUT THEN, I put it into my computer and like
wow!! what a superb,totally brilliant and well crafted piece of kit!!!!
..............2 out of ten for presentation, ...10 out of ten for
I am relatively new to computer music - been a musician for years though -
and I am looking for some really 'Chilled out - laid back samples and drum
loops for an album I'm doing. Also hopefully including
grooves etc. Any ideas or directions in which you could point me? I use
Pro and Cool Edit Pro..........
Thanks Rich, ...[Your crappy looking sample CD REALLY is a
gem!!] - guess it
proves the old saying 'Can't judge a book by the

I admit my cover art is not exactly
Madison Ave. quality, and I do burn these cd-roms here. But each is
an original cd rom burned off my source drives and, the covers are really
printed on my printer. Thanks Nick for the comments!
Received the CD and it's incredible! Thanks a lot for all the work
you put into it. It's well worth the money... excellent! :-)
And thanks again for expediting my order after we discovered the
I'm enjoying your 'greatest hits' CD as well. Very nice stuff there!
Good luck in all your future projects,
Have started using some of your CWP sounds. No wonder they call you the
I like your CWP. Thank you for sending it!
I recently purchased CW and I love the sounds! I
have some other Acid Loop CDs and I've noticed that some loops distort,
crack, or pop at the beginning, or end, some throughout the loop, but
all the sounds on CW are smooth. You put a great deal of quality in
these loops, thanks. I Thank you again for a great product!
Received CWP yesterday, one word to describe it so far...magic! One
criticism though, when am I ever going to sleep again!
Thanks very much!
Just got it - my initial response was -
'wow', my second response was 'damn, rich spent a lot of time on
this', my third response was ' you know, rich is a pretty odd guy'
it's great. just wanted to let you know.
Here is my first creation using some of
your excellent sounds.... really like em' thanks a bunch!!! Let me
know when you have more for sale.
Just a note to let you know that I finished my first song with Celestial
WindowPane and Acid Music, and am very happy with it. I just posted it on
MP3.COM, so it should be available there in a few days. The name of the
song is Space Voyage.
Hi Rich......I got the CD in the post
today, and just wanted to say
thanks for great service and from what I have already heard of the
sounds, they are wicked and I will be cooking up some trippy grooves
with them in the next few weeks,
Thanks and keep up the great work
Thanks, I received Celestial WindowPane. It's huge, awesome, and
fun! I'll have to send you an Acid file when I get something worthy worked
Have fun today,

Just received CWP and have been listening
to some of the loops and sounds thru Acid for about 2 hours now and its
just what I thought CWP is the same as IKTO a great value for the quality
and quantity compared to some other CDs and Soundfonts. Keep up the good
work and the wealth of information on your web site has been of great
help. Mark Hobel
I received and listened to some of your
Celestial Windowpane loops...wow..you put a lot of work into this cd!
I can use most of these loops and they will open my mind to new frontiers
I never would have found on my own. Thank you very much for your
valuable product. I look forward to purchasing more of your work in
the near future.
After reading your article "Transformations in Modern Dance Club Music" I
felt I should tell you: Your way of thinking, your awereness and enhanced
state of mind enlighten me. Reviewing your "Celestial WindowPane" CD
confirmed my respect to you as a person and a professional. Would you
happen to have this CD-rom in E-mu format, cause I would really love to
Got your cd. Real nice stuff. I know you
will want alot of people to buy this so you can make your money, but I
dont want everyone to have this great collection. It would be nice for
just me to have it create some music!!!!!!!!!!!
Have anything else like it for sale????????
Rich Notes: Jim has some outstanding
otherworldly music on his site. Check it out!
Hello Rich! I have finished and uploaded
some songs in which I have used loops from the Celestial Windowpane. 'Womb
of the Ocean' uses that slapping drum loop, 'Shelley - The Monster and the
Child' uses one of the Juno sounds, all the basses in 'Shelley... (Female
Vocal Dance Mix)', and the oriental flute and I think some drum loops too
in 'A Thousand and One Arabian Nights'. Thanks for the great loops! Neole
Hi Neole, Thanks for coming back to
tell us, and for sharing your GREAT stuff with us. Dudes and dudettes,
Neole has caught the muse, the vibe, big time! And he's getting some
incredible attention on MP3, which is not an easy site to crack. Neole,
feel free to tell us how you get inspired to write a song. I'm betting you
Rich, I just got your CD the other day
and I must say it is awesome!!!!!! I have had so much fun (and some very
lonely days and nights :-) )writing space and techno music. I have a
couple of other acid loop Cd's and they are absolute crap compared to your
CD. Are you going to come out with another set of Acid loops????? I really
hope you do!!! Nice work!! Jay
Rich responds: Thanks very much Jay
for the compliments on Celestial WP. A lot of work went into it and its
nice to hear that! Right now I am working with Winnie to get our album
done, but once that is done I will be considering new projects. :)
