I've been browsing Nes music recently and I realized that a Nes tune might not be automatically referred as chiptune, because of samples. Here was the message that made me wonder:
Castlevania III (Nes) uses just 4 samples, which are a bass drum (a mere 65 bytes), a snare drum (513 bytes), a tom (257 bytes), and the evil laugh (2,817 bytes).
But if those imported samples were also produced by a chip, it would still be a proper chiptune, right ?
I guess I'm a bit lost in definition, that's why I require your help
