Novation Circuit Mono Station
The Novation Circuit Mono Station is the next generation in sequence mono synths. This new synthesizer is a paraphonic analogue synthesizer that originates from the Novation Bass Station II, with three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit.
One of the best things about analog synthesizers is that you can simply reach out and grab controls and quickly dial in the sound you want, and that’s even more true for the digitally controlled analog synthesis onboard the novation circuit mono station. Sure, you can load and save up to 64 patches on it, but creating new sounds is also super easy. Dial in a pair of oscillators and shape the results with the multimode filter section, which includes highpass, lowpass, and bandpass modes at 12dB or 24dB per octave. After that, it’s just a matter of combining your LFO and envelope generator with the 4 x 8 modulation matrix, and you can produce delightfully sophisticated sounds. To top it off, three rich distortion types and filter overdrive make it easy to add texture and grit to your tone.
Loaded with 32 multi function, velocity-sensitive pads, the Circuit Mono Station more than rivals the functionality of many dedicated pad controllers. While the flexibility of these controls extends well into DAW control, that’s nothing compared to what they do for the Circuit Mono Station’s on-board functions. For starters, there are 16 scale types, which let you explore melodic structures and progression you might not otherwise come up with. Three sequencers include one for either oscillator and another dedicated to modulation, further expanding your sound-shaping possibilities, and with changeable sync rates, you can get an awful lot of mileage out of every step.
These days, it’s easier than ever to get invested in tabletop gear and modular synth rigs. As a modern day musician you are always on the lookout for great ways to integrate your hardware with your favorite DAWs, which is why we love what Novation accomplished with their Circuit Mono Station. Fully loaded with USB connectivity, MIDI I/O plus analog CV, gate, and modulation outputs, the novation circuit mono station is a perfect hub for all your sequencing needs. Whether you use it as a conduit between your MIDI gear and DAW (Ableton Live Lite included) or as the main sequencer in your Eurorack synth rig, you’ll appreciate the epic flexibility of this amazing groovebox.
