Novation Circuit

Create your sound.

Ideas in seconds.

Tracks in minutes.

Embrace a new way to make music.

Novation’s Circuit combines a 2-part synthesizer and a 4-part drum machine with a 4x8 RGB velocity-sensitive grid sequencer. It is designed to inspire! Flesh out full tracks with speed – hit some pads, tweak the knobs and your track will start to emerge, all locked in time and key. You will be finding new musical directions and creating electronic grooves in no time.

Stand Alone

Circuit is compact and battery-powered, so you can create entire tunes from scratch without a laptop. You don’t even need speakers, because Circuit has one built in. Of course, you can plug it into your sound system and work with your computer as well as other synth gear too, via its Line outputs, USB, and MIDI ports.

Two Novation Polysynths

Circuit’s two built-in Novation polysynths have tons of character. Easily create deep bass lines, epic leads, and warm pads using production-ready monophonic and polyphonic patches.

Four-Part Drums

Velocity sensitive RGB pads let you quickly build expressive drum beats. Sequence or play a wide range of built-in drum sounds using the grid and define your sound with total control over pitch, decay, distortion and EQ. Side-chain your synths to the kick drum to get them to pump.

Build Ideas Quickly

Build up your parts quickly and easily, either by programming each step or by capturing your performance in real-time. Circuit's split grid shows your steps and notes at the same time, so you can sequence and play at the same time. Create an entire tune by combining up to 128 steps of synth and drum patterns. When you’re done, save your tune to one of 32 slots.

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.
