Novation release ‘Circuit Components’ a FREE firmware update
If you own a Novation Circuit you are going to be very pleased with the recent update. To add greater depth and creative possibilities to this standalone groove box Novation have updated the Circuits firmware and added some software.
First of all Novation have added a Sample Import so that you can now drag and drop WAVs and MP3s onto the 64 slots with 60seconds of space to work with. You can then save your instruments as a single file to be backed up and shared. There is also a new software editor that has been released so that you can access all of the synths parameters and option to edit the 8 macro control knobs on a patch by patch basis. The Librarian is also a great new feature allowing the user to back up the Circuits 32 sessions to the cloud to ensure that you never loose a session whilst freeing up more space for creative ideas. Finally the firmware update, upgrade to Circuit v1.2 and you’ll be able to plug external MIDI controllers into the device, sync it up with Ableton Live, use the momentary record function or make use of easier step-by-step automation. There are also external preset selection options.
