When Novation gave us the go ahead to continue developing the Novation 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, the Circuit Editor PRO 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)
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 Novation 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!!
