The Novation Circuit brings you a standalone GrooveBox synthesizer. Designed to inspire, the Circuit features two Novation Polysynths as well as a four-part drum machine with a 4×8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer. Combined with an intuitive grid-based sequencer in a standalone box, allowing you to start making electronic music in minutes. Hit the responsive pads and tweak the hands-on knobs and watch your track start to emerge, all locked in time and key. Play around with effects, patterns, and sounds in real-time; and produce a track that’s brimming with fat grooves and beats.
Not only is the Novation Circuit GrooveBox compact, but it’s also battery powered with a built-in speaker. Allowing you to make music entirely on its own. Then, take it in the studio and watch it work seamlessly alongside your standalone synth gear. As well as running in sync with your music software too. Above all, the Novation Circuit gives you everything you need to inspire, create, and play new tunes.
A new way to make music
With the Novation Circuit’s split grid, you can see your steps and notes at the same time. Allowing you to sequence and play while seeing exactly what’s going on. So you can build up your parts quickly and easily; either by programming or performing in real-time. Building on Novation’s true Nova heritage, Circuit delivers cutting-edge sound with production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches. Not to mention tons of character for easily creating deep bass lines, epic leads and warm pads.
Velocity-sensitive RGB pads on the Novation Circuit let you quickly build expressive drum beats. Either by step sequencing or playing a wide range of drum sounds. Define your sound with total control over pitch, decay, distortion, and EQ.
Create an entire song by combining up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns. Then adding space, depth, and energy to your music with the Novation Circuit’s built-in effects. Side-chain your synths to the kick drum to get them to pump. When you’re done, save your tune to one of 32 slots. 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.
Above all, the Novation Circuit offers a compact, yet powerful synthesizer. Ideal whether you’re creating on the fly, or producing in the studio.
