Modular manufacturer & Knobcon founder Suit and Tie Guy shared this video, demonstrating how he uses the Novation Circuit groovebox as a MIDI looper.
S&TG discusses how he wasn’t a fan of entering notes using the Circuit’s grid format, but he’s nevertheless made it an important part of his mobile rig, because of its immediacy for MIDI recording and looping.
He notes that his current solution is sort of a ‘FrankenMIDI’ hack – but it does what he needs and is fun to work with. Along the way, he demonstrates some fun ways to do some live MIDI juggling.
If you’ve tried a similar approach, share the details in the comments and let us know how it works for you.
“Went a little nuts with the idea of using the Circuit as a MIDI looper now that it’s had a few system updates.
Kudos to Novation for maintaining a product for years now and constantly improving it. I was told by a few people I left a few things out so I’ll do another video like this when the Mio4 gets here.”
