  • Novation Circuit Groove Box Synthesizer

    Make Circuit your sequencer, synth and sampler. Integrate with your favourite hardware, and develop and perform your productions - switching between drums, basslines and chords.

    A beat is just the beginning of your journey, but the possibilities are endless. Make a drum workflow entirely on Circuit, featuring a four-on-the-floor kick that calls for a sampled snare and hi-hat. The Sample Flip function makes it possible for you to create multisample drum lines on each of Circuit's four drum tracks. Then Drum Micro Steps add instant fills and stutter effects to your beats. J Dilla fans should probably board here.

    Pick a Nova synth patch that’s doing nearly what you want and use the macro knobs to edit. Select the scale. Play a bassline – notes can be added, edited and deleted. Add steps and automation, and edit each step, giving the beat more feel and groove. Build on the drum samples using Components software.

    Remove or bring back tracks and automation, and get a mixed output by balancing sounds and panning them in the stereo field. Choose delay and reverb, slew between the presets and apply them to parts, or kill the effects. Go crazy with effects and use the filter to create a dynamic edge and tension.

    Audition and change an additional synth sound. Use the second six-voice polyphonic synth engine to create a chord pattern, choose an octave, and duplicate a chord to different positions in the sequence. Change the gate length, and put really short notes and musical expression into your sequences using Fractional Gate. Then apply a side-chain to get the synth pumping.

    Add structure to your music by making and changing a chain of eight patterns, mixing up the chords, notesand octave to give variation. Save your creation as one of 32 sessions, and change session to get some fantastic performance arrangements.

    Create audio landscapes by integrating MIDI-compatible outboard processors, synchronising with other drum machines or grooveboxes, or triggering synths. Sync Circuits by using mini-jack cables to easily daisy–chain them together, or add a Circuit Mono Station to open up a world of analogue filtration and distortion.

    FAQ

    When will I get my refund?

    Once your return is received by us, your refund will typically be processed within three business days. It typically takes a few business days for all credit card refunds to be processed and reflected on your statement. This means it will take a few extra days for your refund to show in your account after your return is processed. Please note: All actual shipping fees paid by Prymaxe will be deducted from your refund. This includes orders that qualified for free or subsidized shipping. Return shipping must be paid by the buyer. If you received a defective or incorrect item, please see the next question.  

    What if I receive a defective or incorrect item?

    If a product is defective upon arrival, or the wrong item was received, we will send you a replacement/the correct item, and all the shipping fees will be covered by us. For defective items, Prymaxe reserves the right to refuse the return if we determine the reason for the unit failing was not covered under the warranty (i.e., if the item was damaged due to user fault or error). If you feel your item was damaged in shipping, please take plenty of pictures of the damaged box and item and immediately contact us so we can open a claim with the shipping company.

    Please be very diligent with testing your defective item. Be sure to try other guitars, power supplies, cables, and amps. We also request that you take a video of the item not working. If we receive your item, test it, and find it to be working, we will give you a refund minus the cost of shipping both ways.

    When will I get my replacement item?

    If a defective or incorrect item was sent to you, we will send out the replacement as soon as we get the defective/incorrect item back and approve/process the return (typically within three business days). If we do not have the replacement in stock, we will issue a full refund. If you need the replacement to be sent out immediately, please place a new order, and when we get the defective/incorrect item back, we will issue a full refund of the original order.

    When must I ship my return?

    Your return must be received by us within 45 days of the original purchase date. This means you must ship your return with enough time for us to receive the package within 45 day deadline. If it does not arrive within 45 days, we will refuse the package. If you feel you sent the package within a reasonable time frame, but it arrived late due to the shipping company’s error, please immediately contact us to make an appeal before we refuse the package.

    What if I pre-ordered an item?

    Even if you pre-ordered an item, we must still receive it within 45 days of your order date in order to give you a refund, so please try to only pre-order items you plan to keep. If the pre-ordered item arrives outside of the 45 day window from when you ordered it, you will have 7 days from the arrival date to send it back for store credit (minus original shipping cost) or a replacement.

    Why was my package refused?

    There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:

    • It was a new/demo item received outside of the 45-day window
    • It was a clearance, accessory, or other non-returnable item
    • The package is missing items that were included in the original shipment
    • The item shows signs of wear
    • The original product box was damaged or written on/the item was packaged in a separate shipping box
