Product Description

The Novation Circuit Rhythm is the latest standalone groovebox to be announced by the brand in 2021 - following on from the release of the popular Circuit Tracks earlier in the year. The focus this time round though is on the exciting world of sampling and beat-making.  

Combining flexibility with pure power, the Circuit Rhythm is in its element when it comes to sampling, crafting and performing beats - whether that's live, or in the depths of your home studio. If you're a producer or performer, this is a more-than worthy addition to your instrumental arsenal.

Key Features 

  • Record samples straight into the Circuit Rhythm; you can even cut directly from vinyl!
  • Impressive integrated resampling capabilities.
  • Sample via stereo inputs. 
  • Slice and edit your samples to make something entirely new.
  • Playback samples exactly how you want - no matter whether you're crafting powerful drums, catchy melodies, or toe-tapping basslines. 
  • Start from a sample and quickly develop dynamic beats via the intuitive, hands-on sequencer. 
  • Harness powerful FX like delay, reverb, a master compressor, sidechain and more. 
  • Create whenever, wherever thanks to an onboard rechargeable battery, delivering up to four hours of battery life. 
  • Apply a looser (or more regimented) feel to your drums by capturing patterns off-grid or quantised.
  • Generate more intriguing beats with pattern and probability mutate options. 
  • 8 individual tracks available for sampling (with each boasting 32-step patterns which can be chained up to 256 steps per track). 
  • Apply grid FX - from vinyl simulation to beat repeat - to add variety to your performances. 
  • Alter parameters and the sound of your recordings via eight endless encoders.
  • Incorporate MIDI hardware with full-size five-pin MIDI In, Out and Thru connectors (plus analog sync out). 
  • Listen to the finest nuances of your tracks via the eight-inch headphone out or stereo out. 
  • Save, store and recall projects and samples quickly using a microSD card. 
  • Use Novation's Components standalone software to backup your creations and load in fresh samples.
  • Class compliant - compatible with modern Windows and Mac OS.  
  • Three year warranty. 

Built for the Modern Beatmaker 

Capture samples directly into the unit and edit the entirety of your beat in the box - all without any need for external hardware or software. Easily reverse, loop, slice and resample your rhythms via the hands-on workflow, applying further variety through beat repeat, stutter, lo-fi tape emulation, reverb, delay and more. 

With 8 sample tracks available to you (featuring dedicated 32-step patterns that can be chained up to 256 steps per track), there's plenty of scope for dynamic and layered rhythms. All of this is augmented by a versatile sequencer that ensures you can quickly and effectively outline your percussion plans.    

Portable Production 

If you prefer to get creative while you're out and about, you'll benefit from the in-built rechargeable battery. With up to four hours of battery life available, you'll have more than enough time to cook up a sonic storm on-the-move. 

However, if a more traditional studio setup is your cup of tea, the suite of essential connectivity options allows you to seamlessly integrate the Circuit Rhythm into any MIDI-based rig. 

NEW V.1.1.1 Firmware update

After being positively received by electronic and hip-hop beatmakers worldwide, the Circuit Rhythm sees its first firmware update, including major improvements and new functions. Let's explore what's new in v1.1.1, available now on Novation's website.
