Overview

Novation Circuit Rhythm is a sampler for the spontaneous. Lightweight and compact, with four hours of battery life, this beatmaking machine can grab samples anywhere. Then, it’s up to the artist. Thanks to powerful controls and processing, users can sculpt, slice, reverse, loop, resample and play chromatically, all with one piece of hardware. The results are simple to store for later with the MicroSD slot. Deep connectivity makes it easy to incorporate the sampler into your studio workflow, too. Guitar Center recommends Circuit Rhythm for getting away from the desk and finding inspiration in the world.

Novation Circuit Rhythm Standalone Sampler Main Features

  • Portable, standalone sampler and groovebox with built-in battery
  • Can record samples straight to the hardware and manipulate them freely
  • Clear controls including 32 backlit pads, 28 clicking buttons and 8 endless encoders
  • 8 sample patterns per track, Grid FX and robust connectivity

Capture Samples and Make Beats on the Fly

Sometimes, inspiration strikes in unlikely places. Novation Circuit Rhythm makes sure that inspiration doesn’t go to waste. This compact groovebox captures samples straight to the hardware, then puts them in the hands of the user to transform as they like. The battery lasts four hours, plenty of time to put a beat together on the go. When it’s time to perform, the Circuit Rhythm plugs in and connects seamlessly to most rigs.

Take the Beat in Your Hands

At the core of the Circuit Rhythm is the ability to capture samples and manipulate them with a set of powerful tools. The internal software is highly capable, but there is no screen to distract from beatmaking—only tactile controls. These controls can sculpt, quantize, slice, resample and more. The process is so effortless that the line between beat creation and performance blurs. And because the Circuit Rhythm fits into a backpack, it’s easy to get in the flow instantly, anywhere.

Extensive Physical Controls

At the center of the Circuit Rhythm are 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads. Around them, 28 clickable buttons give a clear, tactile feel to tweaking settings. At the top, 8 endless encoders can dial in organic curves and transitions. Perfect software integration takes you away from screens and keeps your eyes on the instrument. And when it’s time to get back to the studio, these controls slide easily into your existing workflow. Connectors include stereo audio in, unbalanced stereo out, headphone out, sync out, 3 MIDI DIN connectors (in, out, thru) and a microSD slot for endless storage.

Deep Sequencing and Grid FX

Each track on the Novation Circuit Rhythm can contain up to 8 sample tracks, each with 32 steps. That makes for a total of 256 possible steps per track. In practice, that means tons of room to experiment. It also means the Circuit Rhythm has enough depth to power a live show. And thanks to Grid FX including lo-fi stutter, tape and beat repeat, those performances can have texture for days.

In these circumstances, or if you need an out-of-warranty repair to your Novation product, please contact Novation at: mickg@novationmusic.com and you will be advised of the correct return procedure.

    Alternatively contact the Novation Reseller from which you purchased the product or the Novation Distributor in your country of residence or business. If you purchase a Novation product outside your country of residence or business you will not be entitled to ask your local Novation Distributor to honour this Limited Warranty, although you may request a chargeable repair.

    Alternatively, the unit may be returned at your cost to the dealer you purchased the unit from so that they can organise a Warranty repair with their Novation Distributor.
    This Warranty does not include cost of shipping to and from the authorised dealer from whom it was purchased. In every case it will be necessary to provide the original invoice or store receipt to accompany the defective product to the supplying dealer. This Limited Warranty is offered solely to the first purchaser of the product from an Authorised Novation Reseller (defined as a reseller which has purchased the Product directly from Novation in the UK or its Authorised Distributors outside the U.K,) and is not transferable.

    This Warranty is in addition to your Statutory Rights in the country of purchase.

    Please note: A Manufacturing Defect is defined as a defect in the performance of the product which may be expected from a reasonable interpretation of the published description and performance specifications as published by Novation. This does not include damage caused by post-purchase transportation, storage or careless handling, nor damage caused by misuse.

    A significant proportion of products returned under Warranty (which are very few in number compared to numbers sold) are found not to exhibit any fault at all. Please check that the mains voltage is correctly set for your local supply and that your connecting cables are in good order and correctly connected.
