As with much eJay "home studio" software, at first sight the format of this CD-ROM appears daunting and complex; on greater acquaintance it becomes clear, almost foolproof. The basic on-screen tool is a "sample selection window", with which the would-be DJ can work up the perfect party soundtrack using the provided solos, loops, riffs, paradiddles and so forth. The already synchronised (140 bpm) and harmonised (A minor) music samples include drum grooves, bass sounds, piano and organ trills, plus more complicated but rewarding chunks of proper melody. Utilising the sample manager you can mix, warp and weave together these uncopyrighted bars of music into an endless and seamless wall of funkadelic sound; simply fiddling around with the onscreen knobs is pretty cool, too.
Other features, some unique to Ibiza eJay, include an Animator, for your own visual effects, an FX Studio, that allows you to mix in your own sounds, a Time Stretcher, that ensures those imported samples hit the right beat, and a "Hyper Generator", a kind of on-disk synthesiser, for when you want to emit some truly left-field noises. There are also links to the eJay website, which offers still more opportunities for Mediterranean-style musical mixology. Ay carumba! --Sean Thomas
