** OCRemix is heavily associated with the Chiptune scene as well; however in general they tend to make instrumental versions of originally Chiptune songs.

Another interesting quirk that chiptunes share with General UsefulNotes/{{MIDI}} is that they can be stored in numerous native formats that take up very little space. A full song can be stored in around 10 kilobytes, compared to perhaps 10 megabytes for an MP3 file. This makes them the ultimate in bandwidth friendly music, particularly if you are stuck on dial-up Internet.

* Creator/{{Atari}} produced custom chips called TIA and POKEY. The TIA was found in the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} and UsefulNotes/{{Atari 7800}}, and it also drove graphics. The POKEY, which did POtentiometer (rotary paddles) and KEYboard handling, was in UsefulNotes/Atari8BitComputers, the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 5200}}, various UsefulNotes/{{Arcade Game}}s (some even used two or four), and even some 7800 cartridges as expansion sound.



A more primitive design predating all these is Creator/{{Atari}}'s POKEY chip, found in UsefulNotes/Atari8BitComputers, UsefulNotes/{{Atari 5200}}, various UsefulNotes/{{Arcade Game}}s (some of which used special dual- and quad-chip versions) and some UsefulNotes/{{Atari 7800}} cartridges.

More modern sound chips are based on Pulse Code Modulation (PCM)
