Lawrence Hiler has been credited for the sound driver creation of many SNES games along with Mike Henry. He is the founding member of Chip Level Designs, and thus he worked for many clients who were responsible like Tommy Tallarico, Michelle Simon and the company Equilibrium.

Audio Development

Super Nintendo Entertainment System

Hiler's SNES driver is initally based on Nintendo's Kankichi-kun driver. He used three versions of the driver, the standard version when he started off using the driver, and then modified with the help of composers Michelle Simon and Tommy Tallarico (this driver version was in particular used in only four games like NFL Football, Super Slap Shot, Super Caesars Palace and Super Slam Dunk), and then switched to a more basic sound driver. Then he switched to using Bitmasters' sound driver.


(Note: These games list Lawrence Hiler for the music programmer. For the games that credit his sound group, see Chip Level Designs.)
