Futucraft has announced version 1.2 of Kairatune, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
Kairatune is designed to produce crisp and tight electric sounds for electronic music production.
This update adds native 64-bit support for Windows users and makes Kairatune available for Mac users for the first time. The OS X version supports both 32-bit and 64-bit Macs and is available as Audio Unit instrument as well as VST instrument.
Kairatune 1.2 has a completely redesigned preset manager, offering support for unlimited number of presets and the possibility to add, copy, paste and remove individual presets and the ability to add metadata, such as preset category, which you can use to narrow down the list of presets while browsing for the right sound, and metadata such as the preset author with contact URL and more.
However, most of my work has been under the hood, redesigning and implementing the inner workings of this plugin. Some of this is because the expansion to OS X, and some for even better sound and user experience i.e. for performance, stability and smoother overall action.
Kairatune is available to download for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) as freeware.

de la Mancha has announced that its basic65 synthesizer instrument for Windows is now available for free.
basic 65 is a monophonic synth, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further.
The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.
basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the presets.
basic65 for Windows (VST) is now available to download as freeware. A donation to Cancer Research UK is appreciated.
