From the interview with Martin Galway from Commodore Zone:
How did you get involved with using sampled sounds?
I saw some utilities from the USA and picked them apart. Never would I claim to have invented that technique, I just got it published first. In fact, I couldn't really figure out where they got the sample data, just that they were wiggling the volume register, so I tried to make up my own drum sample sounds in realtime - which is the flatulence stuff that shipped in "Arkanoid".
and a bit further down the interview:
...At the time I did the "Arkanoid" title tune, I was of course fiddling with digitized sound - but I, and I suspect everyone else as well, had NO CLUE what we were really doing! After the project was in the shops I gained access to some real drum samples, and I slid those into my own custom version of the tune. The one that's in the shops is kind of a collage of farts & burps, don't you think? Things were better once I got to "Game Over".
