Production tools develop. They grow and morph into one another, and each rob complimentary attributes from the others, all articulating the vision of a designer’s mind that is informed by the preceding tool’s user base. The Novation Circuit is an all-in-one production tool that has taken the best ideas of clip-launching, sample players, sequencers and effects processers, and presented them in an elegant, expressive hands-on device that will light your creative fuse.
Simply described, it is two Novation Polysynths and a four-part drum machine combined with a 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.
All You Need To Make Music - Anywhere
Compact and battery powered with a powerful built-in speaker, Circuit can be used to make music entirely on its own. In the studio it will work alongside your synth gear and run in sync with your music software too. Circuit is all you need to inspire, create and play new tunes. Circuit's split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play while seeing exactly what's going on. Build up your parts quickly and easily, either by programming each step or capturing your performance in real-time.
Circuit combines a 2-part synthesizer and a 4-part drum machine with a 4x8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer, which will have you finding new musical directions and creating electronic grooves in no time. Circuit delivers cutting-edge sound with production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches and tons of character for easily creating deep bass lines, epic leads and warm pads.
Compact and battery-powered, Circuit truly stands alone. You can create entire tunes from scratch without a laptop, then save them and play them back live. You don’t even need speakers, because it has a one built in. Of course, Circuit will plug in to your sound system and work with your computer and other synth gear too, via its Line Outs, USB and MIDI ports. Circuit can be powered using 6x AA batteries or a power supply (both included).
