Chip Level Designs designed sound drivers for the Super Nintendo. They also developed the MusiCart.

Chip Level Designs may be the alias of one person, but it is unknown. In Kawasaki Caribbean Challenge, it credits Mike J. Henry and Lawrence Hiler for creating the sound driver and lists Chip Level Designs as the music player, so it is possible that Chip Level Designs is just those two people.


Music Development


For their earlier games, Chip Level Designs simply used a variant of the N-SPC driver used in mostly Japanese games, sometimes using the copyright for his old company Basement Boys Software. Starting in 1994, it also started to use Bitmasters's sound driver. Composers would then send their own MIDI files, which was coded into their sound drivers. The instruments are taken from various samples, including a Korg M1.
