Paul Mudra was born on August 14th, 1965. He grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. He began working for Westwood Studios in 1988 as their main sound designer along with Dwight Okahara. He stayed with Westwood after EA bought the company in 1998. When EA closed Westwood Studios, Mudra, and a couple of his co-workers, began working at Insomniac Games in April of 2003. There he became the audio director. Besides music and sound, Paul has also worked on game design and voice acting.

Music Composition

DOS

Paul Mudra used AdLib Visual Composer for his music and ALFX for his sound effects.

NES

For his NES music he used Deluxe Music Construction Set on the Commodore Amiga. The music was then converted to Westwood's NES sound driver. Paul worked on the sound driver, but Dwight Okahara may have had something to do with the driver as well since he worked on the NES Vindicators.

According to Mudra for the development of Vindicators, he and Dwight had received sheet music for the original arcade songs in a manila-colored envelope from Japan, and were able to translate the music to the NES better because of it.
