Because most of resources are in english (and japanese too ! Commonly on Internet, "chiptune", "chipmusic" and "8-bit sound" mean the same thing. Just one thing before to start : the difference between the terms "chiptune" and "chipmusic" is not very important ! Historically, the term "chiptune" came before "chipmusic". So, in general, Chiptune define music written in sound formats where all the sounds are synthesized in realtime 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.
Few examples : Anamanaguchi - 'Jetpack Blues Sunset Hues' Often, there is a confusion between sound relative to chiptune/chipmusic and 8-bit sound from 8-bit computers or consoles.
On this following example, samples are all coded in 8-bit but it's not a chiptune/chipmusic at all !
Historically, the chips used were sound chips such as : MOS Technology SID 6581/6582/8580 on Commodore 64 (C64) General Instrument AY-3-8910 or AY-3-8912 on Amstrad CPC, MSX and ZX Spectrum Analog-digital hybrid Atari POKEY on the Atari 400/800 and arcade hardware Yamaha YM2149 on the Atari ST and ZX Spectrum Yamaha YM2612 on Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Yamaha YM3812 (aka OPL2) and YMF262 (aka OPL3) on IBM PC compatibles Paula on Amiga Ricoh 2A03 on Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) or Famicom For the MSX several sound upgrades, such as the Konami SCC , the Yamaha YM2413 (MSX-MUSIC) and Yamaha Y8950 (MSX-AUDIO, predecessor of the OPL3) and the OPL4-based Moonsound were released as well, each having its own characteristic chiptune sound.
Note that on this website I use '8-bit sound' term to define chiptune/chipmusic because everybody do it. ;) Romeo Knight - 'Rise Up' Just two examples : Timbaland, a famous opportunist producer, ripped off a chiptune of the artist named Janne Suni (aka Tempest).
