Novation Circuit

A Grid-Based Groovebox for Everyone

Ask just about any musician what the hardest part of creating music is and you'll probably hear "the start." Novation's new Circuit is a device intended to solve that problem by helping musicians generate ideas and then flesh them out into fully-realized music.

Circuit brings together two Nova-heritage synths and a four-part drum machine sequencer, all controlled by a grid of 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads. It's all operable without a computer connection, and Circuit can be powered by batteries, giving you complete freedom to create beats from anywhere. When you're ready to flesh out the track with more samples and instruments, Circuit works seamlessly as a controller for the included Ableton Live Intro software, or most other DAWs, making it a complete music production tool from start to finish.

It's All in the Box

Each of the Circuit's two synths offers six-part polyphony, so you can create fairly complex chords on the pads. You can even sidechain your synths to your drum patterns for rhythmic pulsing effects!

Eight knobs across the top of Circuit control synth oscillators, envelopes, filters, and effects. The large filter knob acts as a master low- or high-pass filter, depending on which direction you turn it. Pressing any of your pattern buttons will let you adjust these parameters on each instrument in real time via the knobs. Adjust tempo or swing, and you'll see numerical values for each displayed across the grids. After you've nailed the perfect pattern, copy and paste it over multiple bars via the intuitive duplicate function.

Create Anywhere With Circuit

Novation's line of keyboard and grid-based controllers are already known as comprehensive music-making tools, but Circuit takes that even further as a completely standalone unit that doesn't require any external hardware or gear to operate. Thanks to Circuit's 64 on-board patches, you can get started making beats with a plethora of synth and drum sounds without so much as plugging in a USB cable.

Compact and low-profile, the Circuit is made to travel. It can run on six AA batteries (which Novation is nice enough to include), so you can perform away from a power source. Forgot to pack headphones for the trip? You don't even need them -- the Circuit's built-in speaker lets you hear everything through the device. (There's also a headphone jack on the front panel, of course).

Hear the Novation Circuit in action:

The Novation Circuit is Perfect For:

Beginning Beat-Makers: Though it certainly shouldn't be confused as a beginner's tool, Circuit helps novices by keeping them locked in the groove and in key as they work.

The Jet Set: Travelers who want to make beats from the road, the air, or the hotel will appreciate the Circuit's ability to run on batteries and work completely independent of a computer.

Jam Lovers: Circuit is an excellent companion to a live band -- without the hassle of setting up a DAW or MIDI-mapping, you can play rich synths and drums, then tweak them on the fly!
