Shigeru Tomita is a Japanese composer and sound designer who worked for T&E Soft. He was in an amateur band in high school, but later started to work in music professionally. He joined T&E Soft around 1985 originally as a programmer, but ended up as a composer. However, while working for the company, Tomita (also known as Tommy, a localization of his surname) also worked as a music arranger, sound effects designer, and sound programmer, programming sound drivers for the various consoles the company developed for. He also designed "FM-PAC", a cartridge that allowed the MSX computer to output to FM synthesizer sound sources, and even wrote a song for it.

Tomita appears to have left T&E Soft around 1991, and has not been credited in a game since. His main hobbies include listening to classical music and practicing electric guitar, sometimes shooting models and wireless, and camping in the summer.
