Free Synthesizer + Step Sequencer For Windows, Cedr


Saltline has released Drzewo Cedr – a free 2 oscillator subtractive synthesizer for Windows. with a 16-step pitch sequencer.

According to the developer, Cedr was created with chip tunes in mind.

Here’s an audio demo:

Cedr was the only sound source used on the demo track. Lisc-verb and Lisc-delay were used along with some eq and compression


  • The sequencer can also be fed to several other of the synthesizer’s controls.
  • The pitch sequencer can be turned on or off for each oscillator allowing for greater flexibility in sound creation
  • Bit crush and delay effects also add to the degraded yesteryear quality of Cedr.
  • Other controls include a step sequencer ‘step envelope’ giving the user the ability to create a range of sounds from choppy arps to strange pads and textures.
  • 5 modulation slots also allow midi control routing, such as, key follow, velocity and aftertouch.

Cedr is a free download.

  1. Is chiptunes becoming mainstream? Up from the underground? In from the fringe and onto the fabric? Although this pushes the boundary between chiptunes and electronica.

  2. That demo sounds really great. They say, “the best things in life are free” who am I to argue? Although I’ve not used ‘Cedr’ just yet…for that price, what’s not to like? Thank you for the Synthygoodies, keep on jammin. @[email protected]
