Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of
articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A
chiptune, or chip music, is music written in sound formats where
all the sounds are synthesized in real time by a computer or video
game console sound chip, instead of using sample-based synthesis.
The golden age of chiptunes was the mid-1980s to early 1990s, when
such sound chips were the most common method for creating music on
computers. Chiptunes are closely related to video game music, which
often featured chiptunes out of necessity. The term has also been
recently applied to more recent compositions that attempt to
recreate the chiptune sound for purely aesthetic reasons, albeit
with more complex technology. Early computer sound chips had only
simple tone and noise generators with few channels, imposing
limitations on both the complexity of the sounds they could produce
and the number of notes that could be played at once. In their
desire to create a more complex arrangement than what the medium
apparently allowed, composers developed creative approaches when
developing their own electronic sounds and scores, employing a
diversity of both methods of sound synthesis
