Naohisa Morota is a Japanese sound programmer who worked for Sunsoft. The earliest dedicated member of the company's sound staff, Naohisa's work ranged from porting arcade soundtracks to creating sound drivers. Among other technological advances, he is also responsible for the digitized bass samples used in Sunsoft's NES games. He left Sunsoft in 1990 and by 1993 had joined up at Konami, where he contributed to many titles and eventually became a mainstay at PawaPuro Productions.

As a favor Naohisa returned to Sunsoft for Gimmick!, which used the Sunsoft 5B chip. His sound programming work on the game remains the only appearance of the YM2149 sound in the NES/Famicom library.
