Xhip is a free virtual instrument plug-in for Windows.

Xhip was originally designed as a basic synthesizer used inside a tracker (acidtracker) around 1999. Before that it had existed in pieces as small tools for generating samples to be used in more common trackers. In 2003, it existed as a stand-alone application (acidsynth) and was then converted in to a VST instrument plug-in. It needed a new name as the synthesizer was really designed for simple, chipsounds, with a little xtra; not so much for TB-303 basslines or whatever else might be associated with acid.
