eJay Pure to support Video Games Community with 8bit chiptune pack
Create old-school gaming soundtracks on iOS and Android as eJay Pure unveils chiptune samples
Independent developers and wannabe videogame musicians will be able to quickly and easily create authentic chiptunes when eJay Pure hits iOS and Android later this year –with your help. The 1,000 strong sample pack will mark the first time the eJay series has catered for this booming genre – and illustrates the breadth that Wired Productions is bringing to the core eJay experience.
To celebrate this brilliant first, Wired Productions has released a selection of samples for everyone to download for free whether they are a Kickstarter backer or not. Just head to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wiredproductions/ejay-pure and hit the “updates” tab to find them.
eJay Pure is a touch-screen reworking of the pioneering PC music-making software, which allows users to quickly and easily create original music tracks from a bank of beat- and pitch-matched samples. By manipulated blocks of music across multiple tracks, a vast array of brilliant, original music can be created.

“eJay Pure will bring the complete eJay experience to everyone, no matter what their musical taste,” says Leo Zullo, managing director, Wired Productions. “Coming from a gaming background, we’re particularly excited about the 8bit selection, which will enable eJayers to create new, original soundtracks with a very retro feel.”
“The beauty of any composition made within eJay Pure is that it will be 100% royalty free – which will help any small or medium sized developer,” continues Leo Zullo.
eJay Pure is currently running a Kickstarter campaign, with rewards varying from 1,000 samples for a pound, right up to having your song featured as the opening track in the game.

About Wired Productions:
Established in 2008, Wired Productions http://www.wiredproductions.com is an independent games production company and publisher, based in Watford, Hertfordshire, UK. Wired are the team behind the successful We Sing franchise on Nintendo Wii, and have recently co-developed and produced The Voice of Germany – the official video game of the popular music show. Wired have also self-published their first PS Vita title, Let’s Fish! Hooked On in 2013.
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.
