Hiroshi Nakamura is a Japanese game programmer. He first started working at Square, creating a new sound driver which was higher in quality than Toshiaki Imai's. Later, he started working for Bits Laboratory and provided his sound engine to them as well. Besides sound programming, Hiroshi was also credited for composing music, graphic design and as a producer.

Music Development


Hiroshi programmed a sound driver in 6502 assembly. The music was most likely either written in assembly or Music Macro Language. His driver not only supported the DPCM channel (via a kick drum), but also supported PCM output as well.

Hacker International stole his driver and used it in a Famicom Disk System game: Fairy Pinball - Yousei Tachi No Pinball.
