Sonicbits has released Exakt Lite v0.8 for macOS and Windows.

Exakt Lite is an intuitive and user friendly FM synthesizer plugin. From the harsh digital and cold sounds known from the FM era to warm and organic sounds, Exakt Lite can create a wide range of sounds.

Exakt Lite has 4 operators which can be arranged in the classic 8 FM algorithms with feedback on operator D. Each operator has different waveforms such as the basic sine, saw, square and triangle. Additionally, the 8 classic waveforms from the Yamaha TX81Z are emulated.

Each operator has a separate amplitude envelope generator supporting the classic 5 point TX envelopes. These envelopes have been modeled to mimic the TX characteristics.

The plugin UI has been created using vector graphics and supports blur free resizing.
