OVERVIEW

Combines Nova-heritage synths, sculpted drums and the ability to import your own audio samples.

It’s a beat-dropping, heart-stopping musical brainstorm in a box. Grab the moment. The only question you’ll ask is: how did I ever live without it?

Ideas in Seconds. Tracks in Minutes.
Circuit inspires, straight out the box. Combining two-part synthesiser and a four-part drum machine with a 4x8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer – you’ll be finding new musical directions and creating electronic grooves in no time.

Standalone Creativity
Compact, battery powered and with built-in speakers, Circuit is about getting creative whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Build entire tunes from scratch without a laptop, then save them and play them back live. Of course, Circuit will also plug in to your sound system and work with your computer and other synth gear too.

Cutting-edge Sound
Deep bass lines, epic leads and warm pads – explore a new world of electronic sound at your fingertips. Building on our Nova heritage, Circuit delivers cutting-edge sound with production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches full of character.

Build Ideas Quickly
Take control with Circuit’s intuitive interface. The split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play while seeing exactly what's going on – programme each step or capture your performance in real-time.

Circuit Components
Supported by an online suite of tools that is constantly evolving, take advantage of regular updates and new functionality to customise your Circuit. For example, simply drag and drop samples onto Circuit with Sample Import, using the streamlined browser-based Web MIDI workflow, and create your own sound library.

Searching for the perfect beat?
Velocity-sensitive RGB pads let you quickly build expressive drum beats, by step sequencing or playing live across a wide range of drum sounds. Define your sound with real-time control over pitch, decay, distortion, EQ and filter. Then drop your perfect beat with Circuit – time and time again.

Easily Tweak Your Sound
Unleash your spontaneity with eight macro knobs to take your sound through subtle shifts to twisted transformations. It’s your sonic landscape – go somewhere new every day.

Sample Flip
The Sample Flip function lets you create multi-sample drum lines on each of Circuit’s drum tracks. In previous versions of Circuit firmware, only one sound could be used on each drum track. Now, you can select a different sample for each step in all four of the drum tracks. So for example, you can have a kick and a snare on ‘Drum1’, freeing up other tracks for additional instrumentation or sample playback. This totally transforms Circuit’s drum- and sample-programming functionality and opens it up to new styles of music.

Polyrhythmic Drum Patterns
The length of drum patterns 1/2 and 3/4 can now be set independently of the other pair to create mind-bending polyrhythms and pattern variations.

Components Standalone
Components Standalone lets Circuit owners access all of the features of the Components software, without needing to login or to have an active Internet connection.

Fractional Gate
The gate length for a note no longer has to equal one step, it can be shorter or longer. With 6 times the resolution you can add expressivity to your tracks like never before on Circuit.

Synth Patch Preview
This now allows you to audition synth patches in a similar way to Drum Preview.

MIDI CC Send and Receive
This means MIDI CC data can be turned on or off to prevent any unwanted parameter changes.

Added Software

Ableton Live Lite is Included along with 4 GB of Loopmasters sounds and samples.

    Comments about Novation Circuit Groove Box + Sample Import:

    This is a complete turn around on my first Circuit review (which I now hope the webmaster might pull down). I had major issues with hardware bugs on the first 2 Circuits (which I ended up returning). After reading that Novation's latest firmware updates addressed all my issues, I actually decided to buy another one. Yes, the new Circuit arrived with all the same problems, but the firmware update fixed everything! Not only that, but now Circuit has a whole new set of features call "Circuit Components" which is a complete game changer. I am giving Circuit a five star review,
