Masaaki Harada is a Japanese composer who worked for Advance Communication Company. While working there, he usually worked with Osamu Kasai and Michiharu Hasuya. However, since his name usually appeared after Kasai's name in the credits of the games he worked on, it is suspected that he only did sound effects.

He is currently an audio director at Konami with Kasai.

Music Development

NES

Masaaki used the in-house music software at Advance Communication Company called Sound Routine. The music was either written in hexadecimal or Music Macro Language.
