Novation says that Circuit Rhythm's firmware 2.0 update brings editable Grid FX, Beat Match, Fixed Length Recording and improved arrangement capabilities for greater flexibility with beatmaking. Here's the details in their own words...
Novation's Circuit groovebox has garnered dedicated fans across the globe for its fun and intuitive approach to beatmaking and frequent firmware updates that added new features and a large catalogue of samples to constantly improve the way its users could make music. With the launch of Circuit Rhythm in 2021, the Circuit legacy continued, taking beatmaking, sampling and performance to new heights.
Just in time for the holiday season, Novation is launching the firmware 2.0 update, which adds significant new features to Circuit Rhythm, making it more intuitive than ever to use with more ways for users to be expressive with their beats.
With the new Beat Match feature, Circuit Rhythm owners can speed their samples up or down to get drum breaks perfectly in time with their session and make beats flow seamlessly. Fixed Length Recording lets users record samples in perfect time with their current project. A new toggle in the Sample Record View lets creators choose between a fixed length sample recording of 8, 16, 32, or 64 steps.
Beatmakers can create dynamic sonic performances and take control of grid FX parameters directly from Circuit Rhythm using editable Grid FX, so they can keep their mind on the music. They can also store patterns and muted track states to Scenes to quickly build an arrangement for their beat, without the need to have any empty patterns in a project.
The firmware 2.0 update for Circuit Rhythm opens the doors for truly expressive beats and vibrant performances, giving beatmakers new ways to make music and stay inspired.
