Staff review

Justin thinks that this is kinda sexy...

but then again he thinks that Ryan is kinda sexy too. I won't even get into the whole Freudian tunnel thing that is going on here. Another outstanding vizualization by Ryan Geiss. Great work man.


A 3-D Adventure - I like this visualition, but could you please make it so you can choose to have it in the Visualation tab or full screen like Milk Drop? - August 17, 2009 by Zedo Mann

Like "Rabbit Hole" only in OpenGL - Expertly done. Geiss goes with OpenGL and makes a real winner here. Never gets old. - March 30, 2007 by Chris DeLucia

it's like being swallowed - this guy rocks!!! ... he makes the neatest visuals ... thanx ryan! - October 31, 2006 by malisa moore

Brilliant! - Best visualisation I have downloaded. Wish list: Beat response - could we have a setting for travel only (rolling is a bit hard to take after a few drinks!). Default: Could we have saveable defaults for wireframe, flat, textures etc. More asteroids in the tunnels. - August 28, 2006 by denis campbell

My word, it's good. Really rather good. - Not seen any other vis quite like this (CJ's opengl 3D: sound tunnel is probably closest). Makes me think "ooh alien landscapes" - it's mesmerizing. That's a very good thing for a vis. Excellent. - June 24, 2006 by rob nunn

Live in tunnels - I like this plug-in. I want to live longer in the tunnels, more textures are needed. The best was if there was a capability of loading new textures as presets, saving the old ones. - March 28, 2006 by The Earthquaker

Stereo3d + this plugin= one very cool experience!!! - I thought it might be worth mentioning that with stereoscopic 3d glasses, this is the most badass plugin I have ever viewed. - March 13, 2005 by Paul Mitchell

DOWNLOAD NOW - Ryan Geiss never fails... Smooth and Chilled as you like Get it now - March 5, 2005 by Rue Davies

Kick A$$! - Where's my acid! - February 4, 2005 by aman s

WOW!!! - I've see dozens of vis, but I've never seen ANYTHING like the 3D motion in this one. It seems more like it's taking you somewhere instead of something just twitching to the music. It pulls you in. Another Geiss masterpiece. - October 13, 2004 by Frank Armstrong

hold onto your butts! - Another gem from Ryan Geiss! Some of my friends report feeling nauseous after only a few seconds watching this plug-in. Personally, it makes me feel great. If you let it run for a while new and weird things begin to happen. Try controlling it, or tapping the spacebar to change it up. Pure goodness! - May 4, 2004 by Damien Margo

Try with Shutter Glasses ! :-) - Real Psychedelic Flying with Shutter Glasses ! - March 18, 2004 by Oliver Falkenberg

MY FAVORITE - for a long time now - the best!! - March 7, 2004 by TLC THEFIEND

Geiss is the king! - All of his plug-ins are original and mind-blowing. Why is he not working for you guys yet?? - October 28, 2003 by Dan Haun

Uber-funky tunnels - Very, very slick. - August 27, 2003 by Stuart Bury

Perfect ! - The best plug-in I've ever seen! Very trippy, beautiful, clean, etc... - August 24, 2003 by Ed Skin

Excellent - Approved, very cool. - June 16, 2003 by Eric J

Kool Idea - Geiss knows his visuals...but this just gets boring after a while, where's the variation? You better have a decent 3D card if you want to really dig this baby...and don't do it drunk or you'll puke all over the place :D - May 29, 2003 by Mark B.

It's boring - It's all right and all, it's just not very interesting, i prefer Milk Drop - May 15, 2003 by Paul Fillmore

The Best of all times! - I play No more computer games cuz all I do is Stare at this for hours ps You should make this into a computer game. - April 10, 2003 by Nathan Spratt

Makes me feel like sperm on an endless mission!!! - I Love It! - April 7, 2003 by Chris Stein

Ryan Geiss is god - Surely a magnificent piece of work, though it tends to become a bit dull after a while. Too much of the same, but still nice :) - February 27, 2003 by Kim Kep

hypnotic - Another winner from Geiss. Hypnotic journey into the unknown. A great visualization from a great developer. Nice!! - February 27, 2003 by Henk Prins

MONKEYZ!!!!! - Oh, man, I've downloaded like 50 pluginz for good ol' Winamp, and I just deleted 'em all! Throw 'em away, boyz and girlz, 'cuz Monkey is all you need! There is none greater than Monkey, and there shall never be one tha can top it...(at least not until v2.0 :) - January 20, 2003 by Night Life

Thanks Ryan - You have made the ultimate "TRIP" Requests "FLIGHT" & "SWIM". works great in XP [email protected] - January 14, 2003 by Albon Forbes

Awsome - I have stopped watching TV... - January 9, 2003 by michael collins

This one is choice. - If you havent downloaded DirectX 9.0, do so then check this plug in out. - December 23, 2002 by Randy Koonsman

._. - I can't install it. I have Winamp 3. Can you make another version for Winamp 3? Or am I stuck with this? ;x - December 22, 2002 by Jon Waltrip

hmmm - geiss finally goes completely 3d... maybe we'll see milkdrop-esque scene developments, possibly by the milkdrop gang e.g. unchained,rovastar,illusion,dbleja,idiot 24-7,eviljim,etc.... - December 13, 2002 by Tai Chow Sing

getting dizzely.... - this ROXX0r !!!! d00d, j00 4r3 t3h_b3st !!! - December 7, 2002 by The Cat

Monkey: Spankin' Good. - Geisswerks never ceases to amaze me. This plugin looks cool even untextured... Only thing i would add is a farther draw distance for when fog is turned off. Ryan > * - December 2, 2002 by phil kelley

I LOVE MONKEY! - i wish u'll allow 10 stars or more in future :> - November 30, 2002 by Bird Man

Trippy! - One of the best VIS plug-ins i've tried. Very smooth graphics. Excelent for those ambient/progressive/deep sounds of electronika!!! Just try it with Dave Seaman and you'll have the trip on a lifetime!!! ;) - November 29, 2002 by Victor Arce

gldndragn2708 - THE MOST AWESOME vis I have used yet. Totally 3D!!!! Way to go Ryan!! - November 17, 2002 by Ron Douglas II

I creamed! - If you have any music that has gotten your heart beating, don't try this one! You'll have a heart attack! It is so smooth, and when you listen to it with a good Teisto song to it (sugg. 'the Anthem', majik journey') You'll cream your pants. - November 12, 2002 by ProperMethodz Magnano

OMFG It's great - I haven't seen many plugins which deserve 5 stars, but this one definitly does deserve it. It's just that good looking! A great piece of work. - November 3, 2002 by Peter Davids

Boyakasha!!! - I ain't even finished DOWNLOADING the thing and I'm giving it 5 stars. If you see the words Ryan and Geiss you can BE ASSURED IT IS THE SHIT!!!! MilkDrop - fuckin awesome Smoke - fuckin cool Geiss - fucking LEGEND!!!! - November 2, 2002 by lord blackmancer

ti koxo - DirectX initialization failed. (GetDeviceCaps). This means that no valid 3D accelerated display adapter could be found on your computer. If you know... - October 31, 2002 by BLUTUUT BLUTUUT

MultiOrgasmic Psychedelic Trip - Beautiful, cosmic, psychedelic--take a mesmerizing trip through glowing chromatic caverns that sweep past you, threaten to smash you against a wall of colour, but then draw you through another entrance to new realms and dimensions. Best viewed (I think) with New Age Space music--Kevin Braheny, Constance Demby, Mark Isham, Michael Stearns, just to name a few. - October 18, 2002 by Michael Woodhead

Fantastic - Could sit for hours playing with all the options, all it needs now is to render a visualisation as the textures :) - October 18, 2002 by Andew Bell

LOVE IT - Very Nice Great F1 the minute your screen comes up to see what al the buttons do, and they do a lot... - October 15, 2002 by Death Bringer

Geiss is God. - I love this plugin! Although there is very little reactivity to the music it is quite nice to look at. I would love to see those hairs swaying in some wind or something, maybe even in time to the music, just make it look natural. Those floating rocks freak me out a little though..since theyre defying gravity.. - October 12, 2002 by Chris Daley

Monkey - Fabulous and hypnotic! Classic painting technique where you are drawn in to the light , just around the corner but out of reach. Freudian as all get out! I love this guys stuff!! Make sure you read the tweaks in the doc and sync the refresh rate to your monitor for best results - September 29, 2002 by Tim Coulson
