The Novation Circuit Tracks is a flexible groovebox that's intended to overhaul the way you create dance and electronic music. Thanks to a streamlined hands-on workflow, you'll be granted complete control over your sound.
Everything you Need
This intuitive complete studio tool packs in everything you could possibly need to craft dynamic and exciting songs. Four drum tracks, two MIDI tracks and two synth tracks ensure your sonic arsenal is brimming with possibilities.
Your main tool will be the renowned sequencer. Use it to build dynamic 32-step patterns (which can be chained up to 256 step sequences per track). This is augmented by the drum tracks - where you can mould your samples to suit your rhythmic requirements - alongside the polyphonic digital synth tracks. These grant you the truly titanic sound that Novation gear is known for.
Once you've outlined your drums, synths and other elements, improve the quality of your mix by applying in-built delay, reverb, compression and other quality effects. Add further sonic variation with pattern and probability mutate, and microtiming.
You don't even have to limit yourself to making music at home or in the studio either; an integrated rechargeable battery (with four hours of operation on a full charge) means you can get creative wherever inspiration strikes you.
A selection of versatile connectivity options - including analogue sync out and five-pin MIDI in/out/thru - ensures the Circuit Tracks will slot seamlessly into your existing studio setup. Monitor your tracks using headphones or the stereo out, and easily mix and add effects to the two available audio inputs.
You'll be able to take charge of your other gear too via the two MIDI tracks. These can send both cc automation and notes. And if you need more room for your creations, simply insert a standard microSD card and store samples, patches and entire projects!
Here's What Novation say about firmware update v1.1.5
Designed for flexible music-making, Circuit Tracks’ fast and instinctive performance now goes on for longer with increased sample time capabilities.
With the firmware update v1.1.5, Circuit Tracks owners will now have 3 minutes – 196.6 seconds to be exact – worth of sample time, instead of 60 seconds, giving you more freedom to find your groove. Work your samples into evolving melodies with two powerful synth engines and four drum tracks.
Circuit Tracks’ high-quality compact build, built-in rechargeable battery, expandable storage with a microSD card slot and now extended sample time makes it the perfect portable partner. No need to cut creativity short.
For existing Circuit Tracks owners, you’ll be able to update your device to the new sample time capabilities through Components. Further customise your groovebox with unique Ampify soundpacks to really grow into colossal sound. Make the most of your recording sessions with more time to create with Circuit Tracks.
