  1. sorry, but the thing is unuseable without a display imho. for comparison: both electribe 2 and electribe 2s are good examples of how novation should have implemented a screen.

    1. “the thing is unusable without a display”

      Please. You dont see Stevie Wonder bitching about displays and he can tear the roof off anything.

      Sorry about your electribe – but the fact that the Circuit is a massive hit suggests that other musicians are not limited by the lack of a screen and menus.

    3. Yeh I don’t know how anyone made music on thinks without screens like the TR 808, 909, 303…..

      Really good track by the way……

    4. I have one of these and I feel like the lack of a screen makes it feel more like an instrument and less like a workstation. You play it like a guitar rather than assemble tracks like on a computer.

    5. you have obviously never used one then – once you have had your hands on it for a little bit it becomes really intuitive – and considering I got mine on sale for around $250 a while ago and it is a super powerful piece of gear for that – if you use the editor and create a workflow for the macros, it works however you want it to.
