Novation Circuit 1.8 Update announced.

Comments

  • Non quantised recording, assignable MIDI channels...this thing just keeps getting better and better

  • Can we talk about how rad the presenter in this video is??! Because he is, and we should.

  • Impressive ! Maybe I shouldn’t have sold mine ?

  • The folks who bought this the first time they were released must be so bloody pleased. The thing gets older but better every year.

  • Yay. Non quantised recording is a Biggie. The final thing that would blow circuit out of the water would be native access to sample files rather than the somewhat convoluted current method. Having said that top marks to novation still supporting upgrades all these years on. Other manufacturers take note

  • Best little synth out there👊🏼™️

    I just dodged that bullet. I needed money for a 10.5/pencil/256 so I had my Circuit listed a couple days ago and someone was going to buy it. They texted me saying they had to fly Europe, as ther mom screwed their back up, etc so deal off. i was bummed but checked craigslist again and boom, three hours later had a pristine 10.5/pencil/256 and saved $400. Circuit is safe.

    Free story.

    Does the Circuit Mono Station get the same regular updates? I assume so ...

  • You can find them on Craigslist for around 200 USD in the SF Bay Area. A lot of people buy them without knowing much about them, and sell them virtually new when they don’t fit into their workflow.

    The gods of economy were smiling on you that day. Pay it forward - give me the Circuit.

  • i love that novation still updates this but i sold mine months ago and do not miss it.

    Awesome update. Still wish you could real-time record held notes over a bar. Manually tying notes sucks when you just want to record some pad strings into 8 bars. You can see this happens to him when recording notes in from the keyboard.

  • Well, lack of no-quantize was the one thing that made me safe from Circuit lust... Now it's starting to look like the hands-on hardware sketchbox + midi sequencer I just might be able to afford. :open_mouth:

  • The support of Circuit is phenomenal ... well done Novation :)
    But, maybe it's time for a Circuit mkII with more dedicated buttons (and more features ;) )

    Hehe, errr...

  • Sequencing session changes in Cubasis is my current fetish. I love those doppler fx you get when abruptly changing FX parameters.

    Yeah I was hoping for one with direct sampling and a small screen.

    Stem export or multi channel internal audio recording...

    Well , I meant mostly workflow improvements since there is a ton shift actions ,impossible to remember unless playing in daily base. And maybe more synth / audio parts not a Digitakt ;)

    Sure, step 1

  • Love my circuit, even more! :smiley:

  • i'm thinking of getting a circuit after this new firmware update. seems like the sequencer will surpass my electribe with the new resolution.
    what would it be now, 24 ppqn? not sure how to work it out.
    could someone say if its possible to set the sequencer voice allocation to mono and if so, is it possible to play over the existing sequence and also overdub? in the manual there's an option for the synth to be mono but doesn't say for the sequencer.

    I don't think you can set sequencer to be mono.
    It is possible to play over the existing sequence, while the existing sequence plays too, and yes you can record this and overdub.
    You can Mute the sequencer, and then still play the connected sound source (or internal synth) ... have not tried recording with sequencer muted.
