Whether you’re a producer, a musician or you just want a quick and easy way to play, Novation Circuit will do something for you. It’s a starting point for your music-making; jam with Circuit’s synths and samples, sync or sequence other devices, or unplug everything and start something anywhere.
“Novation hit it out of the park. Circuit is fun, affordable, intuitive and it keeps getting better.”
– Audio Newsroom
Use two six-voice polyphonic Nova-heritage digital synths and four drums – with independent pitch, decay, distortion and filter controls – to build a beat. Flip in your own samples for complex and changing rhythms on the fly. Make your beats move with micro-steps, mixed up pattern lengths per part, and swing. Then hook up to your other MIDI devices and have everything play along.
Make Tracks with the Novation Circuit
You have four parts. Synth 1 and Synth 2 are a part each and Drums 1 & 2 and Drums 3 & 4 make up the other two. You can create eight Patterns per part, per Session, and mix, match and chain in any way you can imagine for endless, complex and evolving tracks. Then add or switch patterns, record automation on macro controls or FX, and change your drum pattern lengths to switch it up as you go, even while playing.
Load in samples
You have up to 60 seconds of sample time, shared across 64 slots. Then, Sample Flip lets you select a different sample for each step in a sequence across all four of Circuit’s drum tracks. You could have both a kick and a snare on Drum 1, for example, leaving you three more sequencer lines for whatever sample insanity you can think of.
Connect with anything
Send MIDI to other synths, or synchronise and jam with other drum machines, grooveboxes or your DAW. 3.5mm MIDI jacks make daisy–chaining Circuits together easy – including Circuit Mono Station which opens up a whole other world of analogue filth. Connect to your computer too and sync with your DAW, access the synth editor, and keep your firmware up-to-date for the latest round of new features.
