Steve Collett

Steve Rockett (who usually goes by his alias Rockett Music and known by his original name Steve Collett) is a British composer that made music mostly for the Game Boy systems. According to Rockett, he has been composing and designing audio for games since 1991. He worked for Probe Software. He currently lives in Brighton, UK and works at Lowrider Sound Ltd scoring music and sound for games.

Audio Development

Game Boy

Steve used a sound driver by his colleague David Shea.


The unreleased Mega Drive version of Jelly Boy credits the famous GEMS which was used by many American developers.


I designed a custom sound driver with a programmer.

It converted midi files, then allowed you to patch sound banks to match the program changes in the midi files.

I'd prepare the loops in some Amiga sound editing tool (I can't remember the name of) I used to extract loops from the W-30 too.

I remember, every time I'd make even 1 note change, I'd have to rebuild the whole thing, that would take a few minutes each time!!

It really was time consuming, the SNES had 64k RAM, that was for the sound driver, midi files, and level specific instruments and sfx samples, no wonder the sound quality was dodgy sometimes
