Audio Development

NES

Compile's NES sound driver was programmed by Takayuki Hirono. The music was entered in assembler macros on an MSX.

SNES

Compile received the source code to Nintendo's Kankichi-kun sound driver, and it was modified by Nobuaki Yamasaki. According to Einosuke Nagao, the music was written in a custom Music Macro Language, with the instruments being sampled from various sources including a Roland TR-909, SH-101, and Juno-106.
