Music Composition


Gavin programmed the sound driver and the music was written in assembly. Allister Brimble later developed a tracker which converted music to Gavin's sound engine. In Bee 52 and Pro Tennis, Gavin used a digitized synth which was sampled from a Casio CZ-101.

This driver also used by unknown company for own games.
