UPGRADE TO PRO LEVEL PATCH CREATION…
When Novation gave us the go ahead to continue developing the Circuit Editor for ourselves we polled the Facebook Users group for what they’d like to see added… Obviously some requests we can’t help with, Circuit can’t find you a wife nor make you more popular! (We can’t do anything about Panning or add more destinations to the Macro Control either)
This first version of our Circuit Editor PRO addresses many of those requests, first though we had to start again!
The engine of the free version is good but not up to the rigour of automation from Ableton Live. So we re-wrote it from scratch, making all of the elements controllable by clip envelope including both Synth Engines not just the one in focus!
The more advanced Circuit users will appreciate this means that a parameter can be automated over any length of time enabling the Circuit to become a Drone Engine, in fact unlink the automation envelopes in a clip and have euclidean style automation to really mix things up…
With our new engine we’re able to do more as well…
From a workflow point of view hovering over any of the titles will change them to a RESET label, a click and release will set the parameter or entire section to it’s initial values… Hold down SHIFT and hover though, and the title will change to RANDOM… And that’s where the fun starts!!
Our Randomisation Engine will allow an intelligent randomisation of the currently selected patch, you can define which elements are randomised (down to individual Mod Matrix Slots) and then choose how the random formula is applied…
And whilst you can randomise the Macro’s sometimes you just want to bring some order to the chaos, and so you can now copy a single Macro and Paste it to a different position, or copy all 8 macros and paste them in a new preset… Or even paste them to all presets in one click!!
The Download includes files for the MaxforLive, Mac and Windows Standalones…
Release Notes – V1.1.0 – 25th January 2017 – WALKTHROUGH VIDEO CLICK HERE
- Fixed rare rendering issue for tabs that would prevent the user from being able to select all the Macro Destinations
- Changed Hover behaviour for titles ALT = Reset, SHIFT = Random, CMD = Select / Copy
- Added Morph Functionality
- Added Exclude options for parameters, allowing any to be excluded from Randomisation or Morphing
- Added Undo and Redo functions, press snapshot to store the current settings in the memory
PLEASE NOTE – Upload/downloading samples and sessions is not currently supported as Novation has not made spec for these operations public.
If this happens at any point then we will look into adding this functionality. Depending on how much work is involved, this may be an additional upgrade price to cover the development, but we have no way of knowing until we see the specs, should they be made available. Thank You for your understanding!

|Future Development||This is the original editor developed for Circuit release and commissed by Novation. This will remain free and available but no further development work is planned.||After our association with Novation for this product concluded we developed our original editor further in order to provide a more complete solution, such as session control,|
randomisation and morph controls. Whilst we have not called time for development on this version we intend to leave this as an entry level editor that is easily affordable for all.
As such, all mainline development will be made on the VST/AU version of the Circuit Editor – some functionality may be moved over into this version but what, and when cannot be specified.
|This product is still being actively developed and the intention is to increase its functionality over time. Some of this will be included in the purchase price (e.g. provision|
of a standlone), some will be optional upgrades (e.g. nah, that would be telling..)
