PRLog (Press Release) – Apr. 4, 2013 – HERTFORDSHIRE, Watford, U.K. — Watford, UK: April 4th, 2013 – The music software that inspired a generation will make its debut on iOS and Android touchscreens this year, if a new Kickstarter campaign is successful.
eJay Pure is a collaboration between independent developer Wired Productions and the original creators Helmut Schmitz and Bernhard Throll, designed specifically for touchscreen devices.
Back in 1996, the original eJay empowered PC users and move lovers of any ability to create their own original music tracks from a vast selection of samples, beats, riffs and effects. The simple drag and drop interface allowed budding DJs to concentrate on their compositions rather than wrestle with a complicated operating system. The result was spectacular tunes which could easily be compared to commercial releases.
eJay Pure will put the power of eJay into the hands of everyone. Functionality will be redesigned from the ground up to fully utilise the benefits of touchscreen technology. Users will be able to effortlessly drag and drop samples into their musical soundscapes, creating original music tracks on the fly.
The team at Wired has been working on eJay Pure for the last nine months, and have completed pre-production, prototyping, technology RD, and have begun recording new samples. The remaining development budget for eJay Pure is £300,000. Wired Productions is putting in 50% – but it needs the support of the eJay community and new Pure fans to fund it through to completion.

“eJay was the first DJ music creation software to break into the mainstream, offering PC owners the chance to produce music tracks which could rival those created in expensive recording studios,” says Leo Zullo, managing director, Wired Productions.
“There are countless anecdotes of eJay providing the spark to ignite a career in music – many DJs who cut their teeth on the software are still active members of its community. We’re thrilled to be engineering the software from the ground up to enable anyone anywhere to compose their own masterpieces.”
“eJay singlehandedly created a music creation phenomenon,” says Helmut Schmitz, eJay Creator .
“Its simplicity belied an engine which allowed for incredible flexibility and stunning production values. Some of the tunes which emerged from the eJay series are still played in clubs all over the world. The idea that we’ll be able to put this technology into people’s hands is tremendously exciting.”

eJay http://www.ejay.com/uk/ was the brainchild of two visionaries, Helmut Schmitz and Bernhard Throll. They met in 1994 by chance and began talking about how they could bring music making to the masses. eJay was born and went on to become a music production power house with different genre versions, magazines, Carl Cox and other artists involved, and a website that was ahead of its time, with over 1 million registered users. eJay was taken over by a video game publisher which later fell into administration and eJay was lost. The eJay creators Helmut and Bernhard secured the legacy of eJay by acquiring the rights in 2010, and now is preparing for the next chapter.
