A chinese bamboo flute would be cool to sample, although Ethno World 2 already features one. As with most instruments, it just depends whether I get my hands on one.

Hi guys,

Just a little update to tell you that I'm back home after having spent 9 days in the hospital. Turns out my colitis bout was/is quite serious. It was a bit tough there, and I've lost 26 pounds in 3 weeks, but I'm better now, and can at least rest at home instead of in that crazy place full of screams and needles! :lol: :wink:

PS: Alan, if you're reading this, best of luck with your own health after that accident of yours!

Ned,

I was wondering how you were doing. Please take care of yourself and get better! I can't imagine what it would be like to go through an ordeal like that. At least you are back home, so you must be doing better! :)

Rent videos with Laurel and Hardy, laugh a little bit and get better. It's a developer's orders!

Thanks Hans! I think I'll follow your orders, but will go with Chaplin instead. I read his autobiography while in the hospital - what a guy!!! He used to produce, direct, edit(!), act, negotiate... everything! Mind-blowing compared to today's specialized world. Oh, and I'm having a blast catching up on all the audio news I missed while I was out... :wink:

I'm too under the weather these days to try them out, but I just want to say thank you so much guys for responding so quickly to my request! Very generous. :P
Ned,

I'm so sorry to hear that you're not 100% at the moment but hope that you get over this bad spell sooner than later!

I've just come out of hospital myself, but at 63 you expect the odd bit of rust! :) Not so fair at your age........

Regards

I haven't had a chance to listen to your exciting, and keenly priced! library but thanks very much indeed for sharing. Great to hear that Alan (the allrounder) is onboard! :)

I look forward to finding out more but everyone seems very impressed so far.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Herman, have just registered.

Extremely generous of you - this is a fantastic resource!

And of course, for anyone who has not yet discovered it, the Cinematic Duduk is great too.

I get constant unzipping errors. Which program do you use to extract the files?
I'm hoping you've fixed this by now, but if not: You use MacRAR or WinRAR www.rarlabs.com

Hi Herman,

I just found out about your R.A.W. community, and have registered online. Hope to be approved soon :)

Added 24th Feb 2009:

Great sounds - can't believe they're free.
Many thanks!
It's good to know that people are still discovering these sounds. It makes me want to grab an instrument again soon to sample it :D
