Novation remain one of the true innovators in the MIDI Controller and Synth world, our first experience with working with them was on the Twitch Serato Itch Controller, a project for the LaunchControl XL followed and then we hit the big time with our collaboration in creating the Novation Circuit Editor.
With articles and features in the likes of SoundonSound and Future Music Mag it was the turning point for a fledgling company to sit up and start to take things seriously, with the original Novation Circuit Editor we actually started to believe we were quite good and were humbled by the feedback.
With the release of Novations Components software we’ve retired our own free editor but you still have the option to upgrade to the Pro level of functionality with our Circuit Editor Pro and immerse yourself in the Circuit Packs we have available!
To follow up on Start Something and Delorean Dreams Yves Bigcity has returned with a collaboration destined to become another classic Novation Circuit pack.Now fully compatible with the Novation Circuit Tracks
This pack for the Novation Circuit will be perfect for all songwriters that need to quickly start a song idea, whether you are into rock, disco, funk, hip hop or electro we all need at a moment a real acoustic drum pattern to get smooth inspiration.
This session pack will deliver those authentic and classic grooves and inspiring beats that you can freely arrange in your productions.
Cataclysmic Impact for Novation Circuit is the latest soundpack from professional sound designer, Jim Drones. Whereas his earlier soundpacks Stratospheric and Origins Beyond provide the essentials, Cataclysmic Impact takes Circuit into new esoteric territory.
Cataclysmic Impact in part features an assortment of percussive synth patches that allow sequencing of multiple synthetic drum sounds within a single synth track at once. These allow you to create beats with a kick, snare, and hi hat using only synth part one or two when used by design. Place these on both synth sections and have up to six synthetic drums at once(possibly even more with creative motion sequencing). This method frees up your sample slots for non percussive sounds if desired, or a mixture of both.
Step up to the Circuit Editor PRO! Upgraded based on users requests and rebuilt from scratch to cope with the demands of automation in Ableton Live.
We’ve also added a completely expanded view for all parameters with no tabbed interfaces, a morph between two patches function and finally intelligent randomisation for instant patch creation on the Novation Circuit.
We’ve been following Tom’s work for years, his MegaSet principle in Ableton Live was the core inspiration for one of our most popular devices, Follow. Always innovating, the Novation Circuit appealed to his nature of expression and now we proudly present his first pack of patches. Here’s what Tom has to say about them…
“I wanted to make a pack that was great for people starting out. Powerful sounds and no confusing configurations. Something that is both half simple and half intense. Nice and naughty has the left 16 patches as good solid foundations to lay down ideas (smooth stabby basses, punchy leads, lush evolving pads etc), and the right most 16 has sounds that can get extreme and have wild variation using the Macro dials”
Jim Drones is a patch designer for numerous award winning VST software instruments, creating many of the sounds taken for granted these days. We’re thrilled to present his debut hardware synth sound pack for us at Isotonik Studios! Here’s what Jim has to say…
“Origins Beyond consists of not only a selection of cutting-edge signature patches within the soundpack, but also offers Circuit users the ability to have both random and consistent macro assignments for optimal workflow. Each patch is designed to allow users of either workflow preference to use them to personal taste, with the ability to expand upon the hybrid random vs. structured macro approach when customizing. From atmospheric ambient drones, filthy basses, arps, and screaming leads, this pack features a wide array of sounds that are perfect all for Drum & Bass, Jungle, Dubstep, and Breaks.” / JIM
The first pack from Jim Drones, Origins Beyond, went down a storm, eager to explore different avenues of sound this follow up is released under his Jim Drones persona.
The Stratospheric Soundpack by Jim Drones features 32 professionally designed patches for Novation Circuit with focus on ambient drones and soundscapes in mind. It also consists of lush pads and evolving strings, dirty 303 basses, hoovers, lead synths, and abyssmal sound effecs. Perfect for producing a variety of other genres as well, such as Trance, Acid, Breaks, Progressive, and Drum and Bass…
