Description

Details

Circuit Mono Station

Next-generation sequenced monosynth

Circuit Mono Station is a paraphonic analogue synthesiser that originates from the Novation Bass Station II, with three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit.

Connect to just about anything

The CV, Gate and modulation outputs provide an easy mechanism for controlling separate hardware. You can plug Circuit Mono Station into your Mac or PC via USB and start playing. It also has MIDI In, Out and Thru, so you can connect your other MIDI gear. Passing an audio signal through the audio input opens up a world of analogue filtration and distortion. Using the audio input with the mod sequencer, you can modulate, evolve and process your source in entirely new ways.


Where does Circuit Mono Station fit in your set-up?

VIEW SYSTEM DIAGRAM

 

Three sequencer tracks

Both monophonic and paraphonic modes are available, with each oscillator controlled by its own sequencer. In total, there’s two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer. You can alter Gate length, switch patterns instantly, choose sync rate and mutate patterns.


 

Demystifying 'Paraphonic'

Novation’s Circuit Mono Station is by no means the first paraphonic synth. But by embracing ‘paraphony’, we entered a sometimes confusing sub-section of synthesis categorisation.

Turns out that the sub-section of phraseology that refers to the number of sounds a synth is capable of creating at any one time is a pretty confusing topic. Read what Peter Kirn (Create Digital Music) and the makers of Circuit Mono Station have to say about it.


 

Features

Individually control oscillators

Two oscillators with individual control of sync and tuning parameters.


 

Get the frequency band you want

High-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB.


 

Three distortion modes

Classic Bass Station, new fuzz or a mixture of both.


 

Monophonic and paraphonic

Monophonic and paraphonic modes with individual glide control.


 

Adaptable modulation system

Four-by-eight modulation matrix that enables complex alteration and routing.


 

Patches at your fingertips

Load and save up to 64 patches on the device.


 

Three sequencer tracks

Two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer.


 

Connect to hardware and software

CV, Gate and modulation outputs for controlling separate hardware. Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware. Modulate, evolve and process your source through the audio input.
