NAMM’s Freeware: Cythar
For this very attractive NAMM 2014, we thought we could please everybody with a free guitar step sequencer plug-in.
So, we agree, this is not a free hardware unit that you could install on your desktop for compulsive knob tweaking, but Cythar combine what you, loyal AF reader, come to find everyday on our website: a 6-track MIDI step sequencer based on guitar sounds with several tunings, with a drop of synthesis, all combined into a free plug-in for Mac, Windows and Linux.
Cythar is the guitar-version of the Monoplugs b-step bass synth and allows you to create 16 pattern/16 beat polyphonic sequences on 6 tracks from guitar sounds (chord or solo) in order to program beats, melodies, arps and more.
Monoplugs adds that edit is made easy with drag and drop and access to all parameters within a single window.
A good news for Mac PPC users, the plug-in is also compatible with your good old dinosaur, along with Windows and Linux OS.
You can download Cythar from cythar.monoplugs.com.
We wish you a great weekend and if you decided to stay in your bed or couch for the next two days, enjoy our exclusive coverage of the Winter NAMM Show 2014 with more news, pictures and videos just for you!
