Novation Circuit Mono Station Synthesizer

The Novation Circuit Mono Station Synthesizer is a paraphonic analog synthesizer with three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit. The synth has two oscillators that can be individually controlled, three distortion modes, plus one multi-mode filter that can be high-pass, low-pass or band-pass.

The Novation Circuit Mono Station Synthesizer offers the individual control of the sync and tuning parameters of its two oscillators. The groovebox also offers four waveshapes (sawtooth, triangle, square and sample + hold), a sub-oscillator, ring modulation and noise generation. Users can get the frequency band they want by applying high-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB. In addition, the Novation Circuit Mono Station introduces a meaty overdrive.

Both monophonic and paraphonic modes are available, with each oscillator individually controlling its own sequencer. There is a choice of three sequencers: two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer. Users can alter gate length, switch patterns instantly, choose sync rate and mutate patterns.

A four-by-eight modulation matrix makes it possible to route from LFO with four waveshapes, envelope, sequencer or velocity, enabling complex modulation for pitch, pulse-width, amp, filter, distortion or CV.

Up to 64 patches can be loaded and saved on the device, right at the user's fingertips. The Novation Circuit Mono Station controls separate hardware via CV, gate and modulation outputs, and has MIDI I/O, so other MIDI gear can be connected. Via USB, the Novation Circuit Mono Station can be plugged into Mac or PC, where unlimited patches can be managed using Components.
