Novation Circuit Rhythm
The Circuit Rhythm from Novation is a beat-making machine that is perfect for performers and producers looking to bring their tracks to the next level. The sample-based architecture and straightforward interface help optimize your beats with an intuitive workflow. Load samples from the microSD card or record directly into the Circuit Rhythm using the stereo audio inputs. Then, modify the samples onboard: slice, sculpt, reverse, loop, resample, and play them back chromatically to reinvent even the simplest of samples. Load up samples into the eight tracks, each with 32 steps, chainable to 256 steps per track. The sequencer helps bring your ideas to life, adding grid FX, off-grid swing, probability, and pattern mutation to get your creative juices flowing. Add lush reverb, dynamic delay, pumping sidechain, and a master compressor for emphasis and punch. The encoders add a new level of performability to your tracks, giving you direct access to parameters such as distortion, sample tuning, and both low and high pass filters.
The extensive connectivity allows you to incorporate the Circuit Rhythm with other gear. Record samples directly with the stereo inputs, and monitor your tracks with the headphone output in conjunction with the stereo TRS outputs. Use with MIDI-enabled gear using the 5-pin DIN MIDI in, out, and thru. Finally, the analog sync output allows your compatible hardware sequencer or drum machine to work in time with the Circuit Rhythm.
The convenient form factor makes it perfect for live performers on the move. Simply throw in your bag and you're good to go to your next gig. The internal battery features four hours of usage, allowing you to bring your beats anywhere. Save thousands of samples, loops, sequences, and projects to the internal microSD card.
