    The Circuit from Novation is a great new way to create music either in the studio, on the go or performing live. 

    Circuit has two built in Nova synths and drum machine as well as a sequencer to put it all together.  The RGB lit pads help to navigate the different modes and the rotary encoders can be used as filters or effects adjustment with live action recording of every move. 

    The Novation Circuit has audio and midi outputs (you can even link two Circuits together) as well as headphone output. There is USB connectivity to hook it up to your DAW or other software

    It can be run from mains power or from 6 AA batteries and even has a low power built in speaker.

     

    Circuit V1.5

    New in 1.5

    Fractional Gate
    We've given the gate sequencer six times more precision per step. Version 1.5 enables staccato steps to be programmed per-step and increases variance in melody creation.

    Improved gate functionality
    The improved gate functionality makes it a great choice as a sequencer to drive a modular system, as well as it having two inbuilt synth engines (six-voice), and a sampler built-in.

    Synth Patch Preview
    Synth Patch Preview means that anyone can listen to synth patches directly from the selection view: poly patches play the root, third and fifth notes of the current scale and key, while mono patches play the root note.

    MIDI CC Send and Receive
    Circuit 1.5 also features MIDI CC Send and Receive, which means MIDI CC data can be turned on or off to prevent any unwanted parameter changes. Circuit Mono Station also comes with MIDI CC Send and Receive so you can choose what MIDI information you want to share between both devices.

    *You'll always need the latest firmware to make sure you're able to use Components.

     

    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.

     

    Ideas in Seconds. Tracks in Minutes

    Circuit inspires, straight out the box. It combines a 2-part synthesiser 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.

    Stand Alone

    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 outputs, USB and MIDI ports.

    Cutting Edge Sound 

    Building on our true Nova heritage, 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.

    Build Ideas Quickly

    Embrace a new way to make music. 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. 

    Combine Simplicity and Experimentation

    Use simple streamlined modes to keep your harmonies, rhythms and melodies locked in time and key while you make riffs, hooks and chords. Or start experimenting for some serious sequencing exploration. 

    Looking for the Perfect Beat?

    Velocity sensitive RGB pads let you quickly build expressive drum beats, by step sequencing or playing the wide range of drum sounds. Define your sound with total control over pitch, decay, distortion and EQ.

    Easily Tweak Your Sound 

    Sculpt your sound using eight macro knobs allowing you to subtly tweak or completely transform each patch. Then add movement and rhythm by recording or sequencing your performance.

    Build Whole Tunes with Effects

    Create an entire tune by combining up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns, then adding space, depth and energy to your music with built-in effects. Sidechain your synths to the kick drum to get them to pump. When you’re done, save your tune to one of 32 slots.
