The David Whittaker music format was a sound engine created by video game musician David Whittaker for his Commodore Amiga/CD32 music. He programmed all of his music and instrument samples into the driver. His Amiga instrument samples came from his Korg M1 and his Commodore 64 audio driver.

Whittaker wrote music and sound effects in 68000 assembly, in an identical fashion to his Atari ST music, as both share the same CPU.
