Chris Hülsbeck (AKA Chris Huelsbeck) is a German composer, probably best known for composing the music to the Turrican games.
Hülsbeck designed his own format, TFMX (The Final Musicsystem eXtended) and programmed the driver for it. His friend Peter W. Thierolf programmed the editor.
Hülsbeck's instruments were from an Ensoniq SQ-80.
Hülsbeck did a few conversions using his own driver.
Hülsbeck programmed his own driver, Musicmaster, and composed the song Shades in hex code. As that was time-consuming, he spent the summer writing an editor for it, Soundmonitor, which was published in 64'er 10/86.
In 1987, he started making samples using self-built hardware connected to the C64's userport.
In 1988, Hülsbeck noticed that newer SID chips did not properly play samples anymore and concentrated more on the SID chip itself. Also, games had become too memory hungry. He programmed an early version of TFMX for the C64, which was only available to Ramiro Vaca and himself.
