Novation Circuit Rhythm Groovebox and Standalone Sampler -NEW

In Brief: Standalone Sampler and Groove Production Workstation with 8 Pattern Tracks, Step-sequencer, Onboard Effects Section, and Built-in Rechargeable Battery.

The Novation Circuit Rhythm is a portable, standalone groovebox designed for sample-based music creation. Distinct from the Circuit Tracks, it features eight tracks for custom samples, loops, and one shots, along with a range of sound manipulation tools like rhythmic and harmonic effects, modulators, reverb, and delay. The device incorporates a powerful sequencer supporting pattern chains of up to 256 steps and is equipped with a 4 x 8 matrix of RGB pads and 10 control knobs for intuitive programming and performance.

Circuit Rhythm facilitates versatile sample manipulation, allowing users to record samples via stereo input or load them from a microSD card. It offers Grid FX such as beat repeat, reverser, gater, auto-filter, sample-rate reducer, bitcrusher, phaser, and vinyl simulation. With its sampling capabilities, the device allows users to create complete sample-based productions on a portable platform.

Featuring eight pattern tracks, Circuit Rhythm enables the programming of complex arrangements with the ability to chain up to eight 32-step patterns. It provides three play order settings (reverse, ping-pong, and random) and a unique mutate feature for pattern randomization. The onboard reverb and delay with eight reverb types and 16 delay presets enhance the final mix, and their send levels can be automated.

The groovebox is battery-powered with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, offering up to 4 hours of on-the-go production. The Novation Components hub expands functionality by providing access to software updates and allowing users to create, download, and store custom sample packs. Additionally, the Circuit Rhythm Sample Pack Expansion includes six genre-specific packs with over 550 curated loops and one shots, offering creative possibilities for music production.
