Kiyohiro Sada (better known as Kyouhei Sada) was a Japanese composer, sound designer and programmer. He attended the Osaka University of Arts for music engineering. In 1986, he joined Konami and worked on the audio for a great deal of their games. Then in 1988, he worked for Natsume, still keeping his job at Konami. A year later in 1989, he quit Konami and only worked for Natsume. He then left Natsume in 1993. Throughout his career, he used a great deal of aliases. Sada's personal favorite work is S.C.A.T. for the NES.

Sada was also the founder of Pure Sound, a company which specializes in creating music and sound effects for video games.

Audio Development


Kiyohiro programmed a sound driver for the Game Boy's modified Z80. Music was entered in hexadecimal via a text editor. Then the music was arduously compiled.


Sada used Konami's sound driver, in which the music was written in 6502 assembly language.

When Sada started working at Natsume, he coded his own sound driver, in which he also wrote in 6502 assembly machine code using hexadecimal numbers for notation.
