True chiptunes are the sound generated by the audio chip, all of which use machine code to set high and low frequencies, filters, volume etc, by doing so they create unique emulations of actual instruments, i.e - the audio is mostly programmed into the audio hardware - some chiptunes may make use of audio samples.

The Amiga tends to make use of pre-recorded audio samples.
