Novation Launches Circuit Tracks, a Next-Gen Groovebox

The original Novation Circuit has been a go-to groovebox since its release in 2015. A standalone synth, sampler, and sequencer, it's a feature-rich instrument with a simple interface, making it a quick and satisfying tool.

Today, Novation is releasing Circuit Tracks, a next-gen iteration that brings in feedback from original users to offer even better and faster ways to create and perform music.

Circuit Tracks is a hands-on instrument, with all the controls you need in knobs and buttons. There's no painstaking menu-diving here. With dedicated MIDI tracks, you can use it just as a powerful sequencer that can control the rest of your rig. And it has a built-in rechargeable battery for easy use anywhere.

But like its predecessor, what's most fun about the Circuit Tracks is that you can make full tracks with it alone. With two digital polysynth tracks and four drum tracks, building up beats and songs with the preset sounds is a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Or you can load your own samples and shape them with the Circuit Tracks' sonic parameters and onboard effects like reverb, delay, and compression.
