Masahiko Ishida is a Japanese musician. He worked at Irem in 1987 and left about 3 years later.

Music Development


IREM's arcade game sound tool was great! It was more than what most commercial software had to offer. High performance. It was like re-composer software; Key-note, Step, Gate, Velocity and using MIDI keyboard. I think that it was going much than other companies.


Masahiko wrote a sound engine. He wrote the music on a piece of software he wrote, which used a Famicom controller. The program worked like a normal music editor.
