Novation CIRCUIT overview

  • 1Description

The Circuit from Novation is a compact and portable groove box designed to be used in the studio or on the go for professional producers and DJs. The machine offers 6-voice polyphony and features a 2-part synth engine, a 4-part drum and sample machine, and a 4x8 grid of velocity-sensitive (RGB) sequencer pads. There are 64 production-ready patches and loads of oscillator types and wave tables to get you going right out of the box.

The sequencer offers real-time and step-input recording and offers a time and key lock to ensure all of your sounds lock to tempo and blend harmonically. The 8 synth macro encoders allow you to record and playback multiple synth parameter tweaks in real time. Combine up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns to complete full songs and save them to the 32 available slots. The on-board reverb and delay add space and dimension to your creations.

The groove box includes Circuit Components, a collection of utilities designed to help you quickly and easily customize your instrument. The Sample Import function allows you to drag and drop up to 60 seconds of sample space across 64 slots. Standard MP3 or WAV files will automatically be converted to a Circuit-friendly format. The Editor gives you unadulterated access to Circuit's two synth engines and macro controls, and the Librarian allows for complete cloud-based backups with session recall from anywhere in the world.

The Circuit is class compliant and connects to any Mac or Windows computer and transfers MIDI via the on-board USB port. The unit is truly portable with its included speaker and includes six AA batteries. A 12 VDC power supply is also included for studio use. The Circuit also ships with a USB cable, two 1/8" / 3.5mm to 5-pin DIN breakout cables, a copy of Ableton Live Lite, and 4GB of Loopmasters sounds and samples.
