Novation let us know that their new Circuit Mono Station is now available for sale in-store and online.
The new monosynth builds on the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit, with a paraphonic analog synthesizer that originates from the Bass Station II, plus three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit.
- The Mono Station features two oscillators that can be individually controlled, three distortion modes, plus a multi-mode filter with high-pass, low-pass or band-pass. The sync and tuning parameters of its two oscillators can be individually controlled. The synth offer four waveshapes (sawtooth, triangle, square and sample + hold), a sub-oscillator, ring modulation and noise generation.
- The output of the oscillators can be modified with a high-pass, low-pass and band-pass filter, with slopes of 12dB or 24dB. In addition, a powerful overdrive circuit is also available.
- The Mono Station can be used in either monophonic and paraphonic modes. In paraphonic mode, each oscillator can be individually controlled by its own sequencer.
- There are three sequencer tracks: two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer. Users can alter Gate length, switch patterns instantly, choose sync rate and mutate patterns.
- A four-by-eight modulation matrix makes it possible to route from LFO with the four waveshapes, envelope, sequencer or velocity, enabling complex modulation for pitch, pulse-width, amp, filter, distortion or CV. Up to 64 patches can be loaded and saved on the device.
- The Circuit Mono Station can also be used to control separate hardware via CV, Gate and modulation outputs, and has MIDI In, Out and Thru, so other MIDI gear can be connected.
- Using the audio input with the mod sequencer, a source can be modulated, evolved and processed.
- Circuit Mono Station can be plugged into Mac or PC, via USB, where unlimited patches can be kept using Components.
