***Update to Circuit 1.7***
Novation continue to support and expand the Circuit platform with free updates!
Make Songs – The Pattern Chain Sequence function allows for up to 32 patterns and 16 chains of patterns to be selected in any order. Patterns and chains can be repeated, and sequences can be build up and easily navigated between. The append setting can be toggled to add patterns and chains to an existing pattern sequence, even when playing.
Create Tied/Drone Notes – Each step has a tie-forward setting, making it possible to tie notes together in order to create drone notes and long ambient pads.
Take Music off the Grid – Take music off the grid by delaying notes on a step from one to five ticks (each step is divided up into six ticks). Use Synth Micro-nudge to create new, more complex rhythms like triplets across the beat.
The inspirational grid-based groove box.
Make new electronic music quickly and easily with a standalone groove box that combines Nova-heritage synths with expertly sculpted drums.
Circuit is designed to inspire. Two Novation polysynths and a four-part drum machine, combined with an intuitive grid-based sequencer in a standalone box that will have you making electronic music in minutes. Hit some pads, tweak the knobs and your track will start to emerge, all locked in time and key. Play around with effects, patterns and sounds in real time, to produce your track, brimming with fat grooves and beats.
Compact and battery powered with a convenient built-in speaker, Circuit can be used to make music entirely on its own. In the studio it will work alongside your standalone synth gear and run in sync with your music software too. In short, it’s all you need to inspire, create and play new tunes.
