Music Development

NES

The music was written in MML and then compiled. The sound driver is likely originate from Kaze, because it is very similar to the Zombie Nation sound driver. Norio Nakagata, one of the KID composer worked for Kaze, he probably took the sound driver to KID. The sound driver was programmed by Kunihito Hiramatsu.

SNES

The music was typed in Music Macro Language on the PC98. The SNES PCM data was converted from Mac to PC98. The instruments were taken from a KORG 01 keyboard. In Battle Grand Prix, the composers used the instruments from Yusuke Takahama's Roland U-220.
