Circuit Mono Station | NovationMusic.com

A very
naughty
synth

Circuit Mono Station is a scheming, manipulative little beast of a machine, with a deafening roar to be tamed. It’s infectious to use, quick to engage with and capable of some unpredictable and rather dangerous results.

Wäre es nicht schön, wenn dein Monosynth auch so dreckig klingen könnte?

Drei analoge Distortion-Effekte, ein schmutziger Ring-Modulator, dazu ein brutal-böser Sub-Oszillator und alle 53 Parameter per Step-Automation editierbar – das zeichnet Circuit Mono Station aus. Es ist ein Instrument, das für ein experimentelles, polyrhythmisches Sounddesign wie geschaffen ist – auch durch die paraphonische Synth-Engine der Bass Station.

Circuit Mono Station is a unique, powerful and rather loveable little beast that embodies the fusion of old and new technologies that is making synth hardware so exciting right now

Novation have done it again... Simple to get into, but complex enough to take your sound to the next level... It can be nasty and aggressive when it wants to be, as well as lush-sounding.

Circuit Mono Station doesn’t just make putting patterns and tunes together easily, it positively encourages each and every one of them to be a moving, lively, shifting beast… Never have patterns and sounds had so much vibrancy

Beeindruckende CV- Möglichkeiten

Die ganze Power vom Circuit Sequencer steckt auch in Circuit Mono Station, jedoch noch zusätzlich ausgestattet mit neuen und inspirierenden Möglichkeiten. Mod Seq, Swing Sync und eine Mutate-Funktion sind wie geschaffen für „Happy Accidents“. Außerdem kannst du per AUX CV komplexe Modularsignale aus der Mono Station herausschicken. Du kannst zudem Noten als Mod Seq programmieren, um dein Modularsystem oder andere CV-Geräte mit Pitch und zu triggern.

So filthy it'll hook-up with anything

Circuit Mono Station has USB MIDI, MIDI IN/OUT/THRU, CV and GATE hook-ups, and will even bother to stick around long enough to say good morning.

Thanks to the tweakability it can be mangled to do anything from sharp hits to beats and of course those legendary fat basses.

Beyond it sounding great, I’ve never seen so much sequencing power…

Sonically it’s impressive... the deep, multi-channel sequencer, flexible mod matrix and automation all add up to a workflow and creative experience unlike anything else on the market, combining the best of digital flexibility with a classic analogue synth design.

Es wächst und gedeiht

Mit dem Circuit Mono Station v1.2 Upgrade wird eine neue Sequencer-Struktur ermöglicht, mit der aus der Mono Station beispielsweise auch ein perkussiver Drum-Synth werden kann. Darüber hinaus wurden die Einbindungen in ein Modularsystem noch einmal verbessert.

Individually control oscillators

Two oscillators with individual control of sync and tuning parameters.

Get the frequency band you want

High-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB.

Three distortion modes

Classic Bass Station, new fuzz or a mixture of both.

Monophonic and paraphonic

Monophonic and paraphonic modes with individual glide control.

Anpassungsfähig - wie ein Modularsystem

Eine 4x8 Modulationsmatrix ermöglicht komplexe Editierungen und Routings. Die LFOs der Circuit Mono Station ermöglichen es dir, synchronisierte LFOs vom Key Sync abzukoppeln. Dies bedeutet, dass deine Sequenzen von längeren LFOs profitieren, welche synchron über mehrere Noten bleiben. Perfekt um sich weit entfaltende, musikalische Parts zu erstellen.

Patches at your fingertips

Load and save up to 64 patches on the device.

Drei Sequencer-Spuren

Zwei dedizierte Sequencer für je einen Osczillator sowie einen Modulations-Sequencer. Mit Shift + Session können zudem Osc 1, Osc 2 oder Mod Seq über CV/Gate ausgegeben werden.

Connect to hardware and software

CV, Gate and modulation outputs for controlling separate hardware. Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware. Modulate, evolve and process your source through the audio input.

…a solid control hub for a larger analog setup… one of the most user-friendly sequencers ever designed.

Lots of modulation possibilities with the sequencer make for complex sound shaping, and great for external synth CV control…

It's synth has some very interesting features I wouldn’t necessarily expect from a compact mono synth.
