Novation's Circuit is a standalone groove box combining two Novation polysynths and a four-part drum machine with an intuitive grid-based sequencer that will have you making electronic music in minutes. Compact and battery powered with a powerful 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. Circuit is all you need to inspire, create and play new tunes.

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.

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. 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.

Circuit also sends and receives standard MIDI data, so you can connect other MIDI-compatible devices, synchronise with other drum machines or grooveboxes, or to trigger synths, for example. The USB connection also handles MIDI; this lets you connect Circuit to your computer so you can synchronise and record MIDI data in your DAW.
