Ideas in Seconds. Tracks in Minutes
Embrace a new way to make music. Build up your parts quickly and easily, either by programming each step or by capturing your performance in real-time. Circuit's split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play at the same time. Create an entire tune by combining up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns. When you're done, save your tune to one of 32 slots.
Ideas to Tracks
Circuit is supported by an ever-evolving suite of online tools called Components. Take advantage of these regular updates to significantly expand your Circuit's functionality. For example, simply drag and drop samples onto Circuit with Sample Import, using the streamlined browser-based Web MIDI workflow. Create your own sound library. Design your own synth patches using the Synth Editor. And save all your sessions to the cloud.
Make Music Anywhere
Circuit is compact and battery-powered. Be creative anywhere--while lounging on the couch, en route on a plane, or in the studio. Play synth chords with six-note polyphony, side-chain synths to drums, and adjust filters, effects, tempo, swing and more without a computer. You don't even need speakers, because Circuit has one built in.
Circuit truly stands alone. You can create entire tunes from scratch without a laptop. Or you can plug it into your sound system and work with your computer or other synth gear via its Line outputs, USB, and MIDI ports.
Want some instant electronic inspiration? Get on board with the Novation Circuit – the standalone groove box which makes creativity second nature. Start making music in seconds – with Nova-heritage synths, expertly sculpted drums or your own samples. It’s all about the hands-on experience. Hit the pads, tweak the knobs. Layer the parts, adjust the effects. With its compact design, battery power and built-in speakers, Circuit can be used to make music entirely on its own – anytime, anywhere. Likewise, sync to your computer and session hardware, and use your own samples for full DAW connectivity. It’s a beat-dropping, heart-stopping musical brainstorm in a box. Grab the moment. The only question you’ll ask is: how did I ever live without it? Circuit inspires, straight out the box. Combining two-part synthesizer and a four-part drum machine with a 4x8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer – you’ll be finding new musical directions and creating electronic grooves in no time. Compact, battery powered and with built-in speakers, Circuit is about getting creative whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Build entire tunes from scratch without a laptop, then save them and play them back live. Of course, Circuit will also plug in to your sound system and work with your computer and other synth gear too. Deep bass lines, epic leads and warm pads – explore a new world of electronic sound at your fingertips. Building on our Nova heritage, Circuit delivers cutting-edge sound with production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches full of character. Take control with Circuit’s intuitive interface. The split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play while seeing exactly what's going on – program each step or capture your performance in real-time. Supported by an online suite of tools that is constantly evolving, take advantage of regular updates and new functionality to customize your Circuit. For example, simply drag and drop samples onto Circuit with Sample Import, using the streamlined browser-based Web MIDI workflow, and create your own sound library. Velocity-sensitive RGB pads let you quickly build expressive drum beats, by step sequencing or playing live across a wide range of drum sounds. Define your sound with real-time control over pitch, decay, distortion, EQ and filter. Then drop your perfect beat with Circuit - time and time again. Unleash your spontaneity with eight macro knobs to take your sound through subtle shifts to twisted transformations. It’s your sonic landscape – go somewhere new every day. Express yourself with Circuit: straight out of the box and into the mix. Circuit Components, and online software, allows content management and storage as well as firmware updates which adds new functionality with every update.
Top Customer Reviews
The only downsides I can come up with: it would be nice to be able to record sustained/drone type sounds, rather than the sound always triggering every 16 notes. The pattern triggering can be a little limited: the next pattern starts at the same step as the current pattern, even with the instant (shift) switching. And it would have been nice to see names/labels for the synth and drum parameters *somewhere* rather than them being completely unlabeled/undocumented. The mono speaker has zero low end (but this matters little; it sounds great with headphones, and it's trivial to output to some monitors if you wish). This is all pretty nit-picky stuff.
