Games

Music Development

Commodore 64

Antal Zolnai told C64.COM:

We had a in-house composer but occasionally bought music from other musicians, e.g. Ben Daglish in case of Alternative World Games. [...] I can't recall the name of the sound editor we used, but I remember we had to modify it to meet our needs.

The most common driver is Musicmaster (better known as Soundmonitor), indeed optimized and relocated several times. On Water Polo, Master Composer was used, also optimized. A few other games have unique drivers.
