Chip Level Designs designed sound drivers for the Super Nintendo. They also developed the MusiCart. The company's clients who used the driver are Equilibrium and Park Place Productions.

Chip Level Designs may be the alias of one person, but it is unknown. In Kawasaki Caribbean Challenge, it credits Mike J. Henry and Lawrence Hiler for creating the sound driver and lists Chip Level Designs as the music player, so it is possible that Chip Level Designs is just those two people. The name may also refer to [[Chip Burwell], who also used the sound driver.


Music Development


For their earlier games, Chip Level Designs simply used a variant of the Kankichi-kun driver. Most games that use the driver are copyrighted to Basement Boys Software, a company that Henry worked at. Michelle Simon would use a modified version of this driver, which Tommy Tallarico also used.
