3.0 out of 5 stars
Not bad, not good, 6 Jun 2001
For newbies to the world of eJay this is a must have product. As with previous versions of Dance eJay it is very user friendly, is packed with samples to choose from and is a must for anyone who wants to make dance style tunes without having to have a degree in making music. However there is a critisism to this installment of Dance eJay. They seem to have decided to restrict you to using Ibiza eJay only. I own Dance eJay 2 & 3 and with Dance eJay 3 you can use all of the samples from Dance eJay 2 and import all your old songs. For some bizarre reason you can't do this on Ibiza eJay and I think this lets it down badly. You have to either stick with the samples provided or hunt out new samples. I found this really annoying as I am a great fan of the eJay series and feel that people like me have been let down by not being able to use previous samples.
Having said that it is a great music-making piece of software and will provide hours of fun. But I do think after those hours come to an end you will find you want to use more samples and not being able to get them from Dance eJay's 2 & 3 will be frustrating.
To sum up I would recommend buying this for the beginner or even for the experienced user of eJay but be aware that you get exactly what it says on the box and no more hence my 3 stars only.
