Product Overview
Novation Authorised Reseller Europe


***Update to Circuit 1.7***
Novation continue to support and expand the Circuit platform with free updates!

• Make Songs - The Pattern Chain Sequence function allows for up to 32 patterns and 16 chains of patterns to be selected in any order. Patterns and chains can be repeated, and sequences can be build up and easily navigated between. The append setting can be toggled to add patterns and chains to an existing pattern sequence, even when playing.
• Create Tied/Drone Notes - Each step has a tie-forward setting, making it possible to tie notes together in order to create drone notes and long ambient pads.
• Take Music off the Grid - Take music off the grid by delaying notes on a step from one to five ticks (each step is divided up into six ticks). Use Synth Micro-nudge to create new, more complex rhythms like triplets across the beat.


The inspirational grid-based groove box.

Make new electronic music quickly and easily with a standalone groove box that combines Nova-heritage synths with expertly sculpted drums.
Circuit is designed to inspire. Two Novation polysynths and a four-part drum machine, combined with an intuitive grid-based sequencer in a standalone box that will have you making electronic music in minutes. Hit some pads, tweak the knobs and your track will start to emerge, all locked in time and key. Play around with effects, patterns and sounds in real time, to produce your track, brimming with fat grooves and beats.

Compact and battery powered with a convenient built-in speaker, Circuit can be used to make music entirely on its own. In the studio it will work alongside your standalone synth gear and run in sync with your music software too. In short, it's all you need to inspire, create and play new tunes.

Ideas in Seconds. Tracks in Minutes
Circuit inspires, straight out the box. It combines a 2-part synthesiser and a 4-part drum machine with a 4x8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer, which will have you finding new musical directions and creating electronic grooves in no time.

Stand Alone
Compact and battery-powered, Circuit truly stands alone. You can create entire tunes from scratch without a laptop, then save them and play them back live. You don't even need speakers, because it has a one built in. Of course, Circuit will plug in to your sound system and work with your computer and other synth gear too, via its Line outputs, USB and MIDI ports.

Cutting Edge Sound
Building on our true Nova heritage, Circuit delivers cutting-edge sound with production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches and tons of character for easily creating deep bass lines, epic leads and warm pads.

Build Ideas Quickly
Embrace a new way to make music. Circuit's split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play while seeing exactly what's going on. Build up your parts quickly and easily, either by programming each step or capturing your performance in real-time.

Combine Simplicity and Experimentation
Use simple streamlined modes to keep your harmonies, rhythms and melodies locked in time and key while you make riffs, hooks and chords. Or start experimenting for some serious sequencing exploration.

Looking for the Perfect Beat?
Velocity sensitive RGB pads let you quickly build expressive drum beats, by step sequencing or playing the wide range of drum sounds. Define your sound with total control over pitch, decay, distortion and EQ.

Easily Tweak Your Sound
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.

Build Whole Tunes with Effects
Create an entire tune by combining up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns, then adding space, depth and energy to your music with built-in effects. Sidechain your synths to the kick drum to get them to pump. When you're done, save your tune to one of 32 slots.

Drum Pattern Length
You can set the length of your drum patterns in pairs to create mind-bending cross-rhythms and pattern variations. Generate shapeshifting polyrhythms by playing two different pattern lengths simultaneously or work in different time signatures with ease.

Instant Pattern Switch
Flip between patterns as inspiration strikes with Instant Pattern Switch. Then combine with automation for glitchy drum fills, beat repeats or synth patterns.

Session Colour Select
Give your Session a visual identity with Session Colour Select - your selection is stored on Circuit without needing to access your computer.

Clock Settings
Improved Clock Settings make your Circuit even more compatible with external devices. Hold Shift while powering on to take independent control over both transmit and receive settings for the MIDI clock.

Melodics
Melodics is an innovative learning app for your desktop that takes mastering your Novation Circuit to a whole new level.

We’ve teamed up with Melodics to bring Circuit users a very special offer, including free lessons and huge discounts on Melodics subscriptions.
