I've been collection info from the SNK's staff rolls, that should give us some light about who-did-what. I didn't add them directly to each album because, well, the list is super long, and a bit because the albums explicitly credit Shinsekai Gakkyoku Zatsugidan. So maybe other people in the sound team worked in each OST, it may be a bit disinformative to credit just the composers.

Games marked with a (*) mean I didn't see the credits myself, just used Mobygames/arcade history/jp sites/etc (may have mistakes and lose the CAPS). Other games I wrote as they were (vgmuseum, youtube/nico or myself). Many staff rolls are ALL IN CAPS, though in the few games that also use lowercase some composers favor CAPS.

Here is what I have so far, I might edit it later (warning: monsterpost ahead)

Other stuff:
- Games with no staff: ASO, Ikari (older games)
- Made by 2nd Parties: ADK (older NG games, World Heroes), Yumekobo (NG, NGPC, Athena PSX, KOF KYO, ports), Sacnoth (NGPC, Koudelka), Visco, Saurus, Metal Slug NGPC (Yasuaki Fujita), SNK Gal Fighters (Paon Co. > Takafumi Wada) others
- Made by Noise Factory: Sengoku 3, MS4, MS5, KoF NW, KoF MI series, etc. All by Toshikazu Tanaka except KoF NW
- PS2-compilations with new arranged tracks: KOF2001, Kizuna Encounter/Savage Reign, AoF1, Garou1, WakuWaku7, etc by ? (Garou: Koji Takata?)
- NGCD titles use tweaked ASTs, but the staff rolls usually (always?) don't credit the arrangers.


Of course the list may contain mistakes. Years are likely to be off since I didn't check throughly.

Seems to me the Shinsekai Gakkyoku Zatsugidan didn't exist until ~1991 and was over in late 2000 when SNK died, and some composers were rehired later or contracted per game basis.


Now some stats from the above (years they were part of SGZ):
Spoiler:
Kenny (Kazuhiro Nishida): ?~1988 (Konny?)
Aran Lee/亜蘭 里: 1988~1989 (Aran Lee Shige)
J / Masakazu Yuasa: 1988~?
Mr OBA / Kouji Obata

Tarkun (Toshikazu Tanaka, male): 1988-1991
Yoko / Oh Chan! (Yoko Osaka, female): 1988~1994
Kidon (Kikuko Hataya, female): 1989~1990

Papaya (Masahiko Hataya, male): 1990-1997 (part of Saurus during 1997-2000)
Tate_Norio (Yasuo Yamate, male): 1990-2000
Jojouha Kitapy (male, Yoshihiko Kitamura?): 1991-2000
Konny (male): 1991-2000 (Konny seemed to be a sound director/producer, maybe the head of SGZ)
Shimizm (Toshio Shimizu, male): 1991-1999
Yamapy-1 (Yasumasa Yamada, male): 1991-2000
Mitsuo (female): 1991?, 1995-2000
Mariko (female): 1994-1997
Ackey (Akihiro Uchida, male): 1994-2000
Yassun (Yasuhiro Naka, male): 1994-2000

Hori_Hori ("Rich" Horiyama, male): 1999-2000
maitaro (female, Maiko Iuchi?): 2000
Q_JIROU (male): 2000

Mystery People from Cool Cool Toon:
小林真貴子(こばちゃん) (probably read as "Makiko Kobayashi (Koba-chan)" -> Macky??)
佐々木晃子(ねーやん)(can be uncommonly read as "Mitsuko Sasaki (Neeyan)" -> Mitsuo??)

Others: credited under sound but probably just sound manipulators/designers (and not credited in liner notes) and unlikely to have ever composed: MURAISAN, FINISH HIROSHI, MICHAEL BEARD, GOODAM KAKAREE, PACIOREK (ex Finish Hiroshi has been credited more as a Producer, Planner, etc). Some like Konny also did programming or other roles.


Aaand that's all.
