Akihito Hayashi is a Japanese composer and sound designer who worked on the soundtracks to many TOSE games around 1989, and continued to work with them during the early 90's. He may have also did sound programming for TOSE. His real name was never credited, but the Canadian Copyright Records give his real name.

His style can usually be recognized because he uses very identical (sometimes the exact same) drum loops.

Audio Development


Akihito wrote in 6502 assembly in TOSE's sound driver.
