We just called them chip modules (my first memories of chip modules are also from around the year 1991-92).
I was really amazed when people on the internet started talking about "chiptunes" and brought up the 8-bit NES. That was like sacrilege.
To me they were always made with protracker or sidmon or fc1.4 or whatever, we never really gave much thought as to why they were called "chip" modules, they just were.. :-D
C-64 music was "sids", NES music was "nes music".. :-)
