Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Whittaker (born 24 April 1957, Bury, England) is known for numerous computer game tunes which he wrote in most of the 1980s and early 1990s, for many different formats. He is known for the large quantity of his works-more than any other composer (in fact, more than most of the other top composers' works combined). He was offered so many projects in the late 1980s that he had to pass some of them over to other computer game music writers (such as his good friends, Rob Hubbard and Ben Daglish). Initially, he had been a programmer, rather than a music maker. The first games that featured his music were also designed and programmed by him, such as Lazy Jones. While making music, he often programmed music directly, instead of using any music composition tools, using just a "machine code monitor"-and then an 'assembler' system/program-including SuperSoft's and then Commodore's tools.
