Jake Kaufman is an American freelance video game music composer previously affiliated with the Big Lion Music label.  Prior to his first commercial project he originally created remixes under the alias "virt."  From January 2010 to November 2014 he was the lead audio designer at WayForward Technologies, having been associated with the company since the early 2000s.

Originally dealing with portables, Kaufman offered his talents to the Capcom-distributed Game Boy Color game Shantae.  The game continues to see a strong following and was eventually re-released in 2013 through the Nintendo 3DS' Virtual Console service.

Kaufman has recently returned to Capcom releases through remixes of themes from the Darkstalkers series and the NES cult classic DuckTales.

Other titles Kaufman worked on include Contra 4, TMNT, Red Faction: GuerrillaMighty Switch Force!, and Double Dragon Neon.
