|Robert A. Allen|
Robert A. Allen is a American former video game composer, programmer and producer.
Allen started composing at around age 5, but does not consider himself gifted; instead, he had to work hard in order to come up with something that sounded right.
Shortly after getting his first PC, he downloaded Jill of the Jungle (DOS) from a BBS and was immediately impressed with the almost life-like 256 colors and Dan Froelich’s music. After reading the game's "Calling All Programmers and Artists" page, he simply phoned the developer's president, Tim Sweeney, who suggested Allen send him an audio cassette. Sweeney liked the music and promised to let Allen know once a project needed music.
Around 1994, Allen was running the software company Safari Software. As of 2012, he is married with five children and makes music for fun in his free time only. He has been a senior engineer on a digital content licensing marketplace.
Allen initially composed FM music using MIDI and later digital music using an unknown tracker.
Allen used WinJammer.
