Glyn Anderson is the unofficial name of the NES sound driver that was programmed by Glyn Anderson for the game development company Activision. One of the most notable who supported this driver were Russell Lieblich, Pete Mokris and Richard Miles Boogar, both of them created MIDI files on an unknown sequencer, which was converted to a driver that was programmed himself by Glyn.

Release History

The driver was only used in 3 games. The first game to use the sound driver was Stealth ATF, which most likely means Russell Lieblich is the first one to use the sound driver, and it was developed by Imagineering, a company formed by ex-Activision employees. Most of the games he worked on using the driver were composed by Richard Miles Boogar and Pete Mokris. The last game to use the driver was Ultimate Air Combat, which credits three composers Richard Miles Boogar, Pete Mokris and additional music by Matthew Berardo. All 3 games were released in North America and Europe, with the third game being released in Japan.

Output

The driver outputs to the RP2A03 for North American/Japanese releases of games and the RP2A07 on European/Australian releases. The DPCM channel was most frequently used.
