Today, Chiptune can be heard everywhere, from pop anthems to indie video games. Chiptune music is sometimes referred to as 8-bit, chiptunes or chipmusic. Traditionally, Chiptune music is programmed using software called a Tracker. Because of this, Chiptune music sounds unique to other forms of Electronic music.
