Episode #48: Micro Cabin

A podcast with music by developer and publisher Micro Cabin, best known for the Xak series and its various spin-offs. Many of their early releases originated on Japanese computers and featured an excellent line-up of composers like Tadahiro Nitta, Ryuji Sasai, Yasufumi Fukuda, and Yukiharu Urita who created some spectacular soundtracks, especially for the ‘lesser’ FM chips like OPLL and OPN.
