Novation Circuit Mono Station Paraphonic Synthesizer (2017) - Used

Novation Circuit Mono Station Paraphonic Synthesizer (2017) - Used

Type: Used
Condition: Excellent

Circuit Mono Station is a powerful, but extremely compact electronic musical instrument combining two established Novation products: the original Circuit groovebox and the Bass Station II analogue synth. Circuit Mono Station gives you classic analogue synth sounds, two interacting step sequencers plus a modulation sequencer and full automation of almost all synth functions.

Circuit Mono Station has been designed to let you create music fast: you can create riffs, patterns and longer sequences quickly and easily, with the fat and expansive sounds that only true analogue sound generation can provide. It’s both a compositional tool and a live performance instrument. You don’t need to connect Circuit  Mono Station to a computer or other device to make music – it’s completely standalone. If you’re working in the studio, Novation’s superior sound quality means you can use Circuit Mono Station as the basis of your finished track.

The playing grid is a set of 32 illuminated, velocity-sensitive rubber pads, which act as synth keys, sequencer steps and have numerous other functions. The pads’ internal illumination is intelligently RGB color-coded, so you can see at a glance what’s going on. You can assemble patterns together into longer chains, and save your  work in one of 32 session memories.

The synth section is reassuringly analogue: the controls - mostly a conventional and familiar set of single-function rotaries and switches, are always available to tweak your sounds. A large Filter control is positioned for easy access. There is a host of other quickly-accessible features: a choice of musical scales, adjustable tempo,  swing and velocity, a flexible mod matrix and a unique mixer section featuring internally-illuminated, color-coded controls.

Circuit Mono Station also sends and receives standard MIDI data, so you can connect other MIDI-compatible devices, synchronize with other drum machines or grooveboxes, or trigger synths, for example. The USB connection also handles MIDI; this lets you connect Circuit Mono Station to your computer so you can synchronize  and record MIDI data to your DAW.

A Novation Circuit is the perfect accompaniment to Circuit Mono Station. Using the two units in tandem gives you a complete solution to electronic music making either in the studio or in live performance.
