Ice Kold Tekno
(Emu format Disk)
Ice Kold Techno Emu cd-rom GET IT!!!
(Rod Julian Modell)
This is an unsolicited
testimonial for the Ice Kold Techno Emu sample
cd-rom for sale above.
It's absolutely thee coolest sample cd
that I own, and I have about
15,000 megs of sample cd's for my EIII.
I have the entire Emu library
of cd-roms, tons of Northstar cd-roms,
and dozens of others, and Rich's
Ice Kold Techno is the most unique,
and far-and-away the coolest, and
most "different" one I have ever purchased.
If you want a unique
approach to ambient and techno, this is for you!
Forget crap like the
Orbit module , all that will do for you is make
you sound like everyone
else. If you want the "real deal", this
is it. Pure and raw. No other
library has the "bite" and
intensity of the I.C.T. collection. The drum
sounds are totally
awesome. They cut through a mix so sharply, that its
not even funny.
You thought a 909 did the trick, try this! These
analog drum samples
make my 909 sound like a Boss Dr. Rhythm!!! This
WILL blow you
away, and for the price, its the best value around.
I posted this because I think its a fantastic
product that deserves some
attention. Once you hear it, you can
tell allot of attention went into
it. This is the ONLY testimonial
that I have ever written. The guys
got a unique product that kicks-ass!
Speaking of an ass, you'd have to
be one to not pick it up at the 40.00
sale price he's got going right
now! I paid more than that, and
if I heard it first, would have paid
allot more than I did. I allready
e-mailed Rich, and let him know I
will take one copy of anything else
he makes for the EIII.
Just trying to do my part to help a nice
guy's product get the
recognition it rightly deserves, and more so, tip
off fellow synth /
sample heads to an awesome thing.

I just wanted to let you know that Ice
Kold Tekno has got the sounds
I've been looking for..I'm kinda new to
sampling and I've already wasted
my money on one particular cd-rom that
cost almost 5 times what you
charge and your stuff blows it away...you
really know how to make killer
presets out of what seems like basic samples...Thank
you for the
inspiring sounds cant wait for something along the same lines....

thank you very
much for the cd . good work
Subject: Well done
I promised to let you know
what I think of the CD I ordered last December:
Well, in one word: great!
Though I reworked most of the sounds to add a
personal touc, the basics
are very, very good. Well done!
I am using the samples a lot, there
is one song you can soon listen to:
song is called '2 Megacatz'. Some spooky sounds.
If I see a real
MS20 one day, I will buy it, for sure!!!
See ya, a satisfied customer
Subject: RE: Ice Kold
I got Ice Kold last night ...
I mean it, I played a few banks
and then had dreams about it ... weird..
Anyway, I'm very pleased and impressed. I think you should improve
packaging a bit and sell it for more, maybe $99. Also, the samples
seem really hot
sometimes. Not a problem just FYI.
that its Totally excellent, tons of samples and some really
patches and leads. I was going to email you a list of the ones I particularly
but there were so many I gave up.
And I own ALOT of expensive
Anyway, thanks a million again,
A WAY, WAY, satisfied
customer. There are those that simply satisfy and then
there are those,

I'll have to send you a copy of my

I like your sounds!
Some quite artistic one's and very inspirational. It's refreshing to get

Hope that you are already
working on the next CD.
Subject: Hello Rich
Couple of months
ago I've ordered your Ice Kold Tekno CD-Rom. I
wanted to contact you right away with my congratulations
for excellent job, but the day after I received
CD, NATO started bombing my hometown (Novi
Sad) in Yugoslavia where's my family, so all my
music activities were stopped for a while. Last week
I relocated my studio into nice space. Today
I've loaded Ice Kold Tekno CD and started playing
WOOOOUUUUUU , this is just great, I love it. Big help
is the Logic environment. This is the best CD-Rom
I own (my collection is about 50). Still didn't
go into details, I wanted to let you know that
you did a great job right away. There's only one
wish, "please don't sell it to anybody else I want
it exclusively !!!" Again, THANK YOU
and "keep on tweaking" for the rest of us "preset-ists".

the other day. These are great resources. My bandmate loves them. We are
both into R&B / Swingbeat so your library isn't only for technoists! Especially

I recommend other people check him out
if you're after some
interesting sounds from this machine. He's at:
I've found all of the sounds to be of great
standard (far better than
most cdroms) with loads and loads of actual
samples and heaps of
banks to choose from. A lot of banks have made good
use of the emu
filters etc. and I'm happy :)
I'm in Australia, and we sent over a money
order and it was here on
my doorstep straightaway so if you're after
some of this stuff
then give him a call.
Sounds all a bit like blatant sucking up
or some kind of advert
for Rich but I don't even know the guy. I'm just
with his zip and his service and its good value... thankyou
And EOS 3.0 just arrived so I'm extra happy.

Hi. I received the ICE KOLD TEKNO CD for
my Esi-32 Turbo A couple of
days ago, and let me say, this kicks ass,
no if's and's or but's (bad
pun intended). I have only had time to go
through about half of the disc
(not in order), and what I've heard so
far is some really wild stuff
with great filter effects.
If you ever put together a Vintage CD with
Farfisa, Wurlitzer, Rhodes,
Moog, Arp, Vox, etc. let me know. I need
some really good filthy samples
of these old keys. It seems you know
what you're doing with a sampler.
Re: Rich's CD Project...
I was blown away at the level of detail
and thought that Rich has put
into his Ice Kold CD. The samples that
are here could not be much better
found anywhere especially since they
are already mapped for you! The
synth sounds here are the best I have
ever heard from one collection.
Have you tried to send a copy to Keyboard
mag where they review several
each month? I know they typically only
have 8's on a scale up to 10 but
yours can easily surpass that!
NOTE FROM RICH:
In fact, I've just sent off evaluation copies to Mark Vail and Mitch Gallagher
at Keyboard Magazine. With a little luck, they will smile upon the

I got the ICE KOLD TEKNO CD the other day.
Great sounds! I've only had
enough time to load each bank (to make
sure the CD isn't damaged), and just
barely get into Bank #2, but the
sounds are incredible! Synths are
*supposed* to sound like this.

I too bought his Ice Cold Techno. It contains
samples and Presets made for
E-Mu Samplers from sounds made by his vintage
Korg MS-20 synth. The CD-Rom
is amazing and can blow your speakers apart
if you ar not careful. Really.
but wait a minute.....
<Rich the Tweak>
What the hell are you trying to pull...it
took me an hour and a half to
get thru bank 01 of ICT. I was laughing
my ass off. That is a
compliment. This is the most usable
batch of sounds I have purchased in
years. Puts anything EMU has
put out to shame......right up there with
the Best of Spectrasonics stuff.....
in my book. I've passed on your
address to a few people...I'm
sure you will be hearing from them.
NOW...how do I get Mystic Garage?

Rich, great work. The pads alone are worth
twice the price of this

Who is *really* looking

Thanks. Brett, for your
comments. You'll find the new filters
really get a workout on IKT.
I just discovered another application to
Ice Kold I wasn't fully
aware of till I got ACID from Sonic Foundry last
sequenced up some patterns and made wave files, then
in Acid. some unique dance loops that really cut.
always been, till now, a guy of the "anti-loop" philosophy,
hate clogging my hard drives with stuff that can be used once and
always sound the same) when you can make your own and use it at
any BPM (as Acid lets you do this) loops become much more worth the
effort. IKT and the Garage make great sources for
and when Acid does its time-stretching magic, it
gets really interesting.
Those of you with IKT or the Garage and
Acid should check this out.

I never did thank you for your Ice Kold
CD ... so i should make
amends and say THANKS ! .. when i loaded up my
first few banks i was
totally blown away ... I think not only your choice
of sounds is
really rich, textural and interesting but
also your preset programming
is suberb. I was previously
used to the EMU cds .... which have so
little depth in comparison ....
your sounds are well programmed
and allow expressive playing .... i love
the way most of them are
brighter the harder you play .... it just makes
the feel so much better.
Wow .. that MS20 is a beast huh !? ....
and you seem to have captured
its essence with some amazing loud sounds
... each one kinda jumps
out of the speakers .... i use the trippy sounds
as great fills and
bridges to other passages ... and i love the drum
kits .. awesome
snares and b.d's and percussion ... its all great !

Well, it's only been a zillion months since
you sent me my MGarage CDR0M. I
just wanted to compliment you on the
wonderful sounds, the (crash) bang for
the buck, and the inventiveness
of it all. I need to get another copy to send
to a composer friend in
Brazil who scores animations, and loves what he's
heard of it.
Rich, multi-textured, incredibly imaginative
samples. what a pleasure to get
real sounds with real teeth compared
to all the slick, sterile, bland,
toothless bits of sonic tofu that are
offered elsewhere. for Emu EOS owners,
this may be the best sound dollar
you will ever spend.

It's actually my first real
