Is it July yet?
We love the original Novation Circuit and often discussed how amazing this unit would be with analogue processing. It looks like Novation may have over heard our chatter. Bring on July and the release of the Novation Circuit Mono Station.
Circuit Mono Station is a paraphonic (can play two notes at the same time) analogue synthesiser that originates from the Novation Bass Station II, with three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on the original Circuit. We really like this format and it gives a really innovative composition method that is natural enough to make a difference. The two oscillators have individual control of sync and tuning parameters. It has Really nice selection of filters; High-pass, low-pass and band-pass with slopes of 12dB and 24dB! Its distortion is borrowed straight of the Bass Station witht he addition of a fuzz setting.
The CV, Gate and modulation outputs provide an easy and creative mechanism for controlling separate hardware. You can plug Circuit Mono Station into your Mac or PC via USB and start playing. It also has MIDI In, Out and Thru, so you can connect your other MIDI gear. Passing an audio signal through the audio input opens up a world of analogue filtration and distortion. Using the audio input with the mod sequencer, you can modulate, evolve and process your source in entirely new ways.
The full tech specifications have not been released yet but we can't wait to see the full features as from what we know this could be a real revolution in the synth market.
The Circuit Mono Station will cost £479 and will be available from July of this year. More info coming soon. Pre Order HERE
