Bob Landwehr is an American composer, foley artist and programmer.

From 1983 to 1985, Landwehr was running the company Parabola in Seattle, Washington and scoring games developed by 3-2-1 Software, also in Washington.

In the 1990s, Landwehr and three other developers from 3-2-1 worked on unlicensed NES games for American Video Entertainment, California, and Landwehr co-programmed games for Azeroth, again in Washington.

Commodore 64

Landwehr developed, published and used PASS. In VICE 3.4, his audio sounds best with 6581 (ReSID) and a bias of around -600, though how close it is to what he heard is unconfirmed.

NES

Bob most likely used a type of MIDI sequencer to create his music, which was then converted to Odyssey Software's NES sound driver programmed by George Rucker. Landwehr never worked for Odyssey, so it is possible Michael Crick licensed their sound engine via AVE.
