Product Description

Inspirational Grid-based Groove Box

Want some instant electronic inspiration? Get on board with the Novation Circuit – the standalone groove box which makes creativity second nature. Start making music in seconds – with Nova-heritage synths, expertly sculpted drums or your own samples.

  It’s all about the hands-on experience. Hit the pads, tweak the knobs. Layer the parts, adjust the effects. With its compact design, battery power and built-in speakers, Circuit can be used to make music entirely on its own – anytime, anywhere. Likewise, sync to your computer and session hardware, and use your own samples for full DAW connectivity. 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 synthesizer 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.

Circuit Components
Supported by an online suite of tools that is constantly evolving, take advantage of regular updates and new functionality to customize your Circuit.
