Description

The Symbiotic pack for Novation Circuit features 64 patches, 64 samples, and 32 sessions for the wide spectrum of electronic music genres. These carefully-crafted Circuit elements have been designed with producers of Ambient, Techno, House, Psytrance, Breaks, Electro, Drum and Bass, Dubstep, and Downtempo in mind. From classic synthesizer sounds to the evolving esoteric, Symbiotic breathes new life and options for user creativity into Circuit.

FIT IN YOUR MIX

This new batch of 64 patches allows for improved mixing possibilities by providing multi-mode filter versions that can act as a form of quick equalization without as much need to return to editors while creating patterns and sessions. The upper patch section of 32 is mirrored by the lower section of 32, meaning that if a patch doesn’t quite fit in your mix at first, the matching patch in the opposite section offers a contrasting filter type. This means more precise isolation of frequencies, as well as variance of harmonic qualities and richness within your own patterns and session creations.

Consistent Macros

All patches contained in the pack adhere to consistency between their macro assignments.

Macro 1 – Filter Cutoff
Macro 2 – Filter Resonance
Macro 3 – Envelope 1 Attack
Macro 4 – Envelope 1 Decay
Macro 5 – Envelope 1 Sustain
Macro 6 – Envelope 1 Release
Macro 7 – Chorus, Phaser, or Random
Macro 8 – Filter Drive & Distortion

Creative Layering

Symbiotic also offers a multi-mode filter concept to sound design within Circuit. Along with panning and macro adjustments, it can provide a new technique for adding depth to your synths parts. Using corresponding patches from both the upper and lower synth sections on Circuit’s synth parts together allows for combined synth part layers consisting of four oscillators, four LFO’s, six envelopes, and so on.

Samples for All Bass Music Types

Also included in the Symbiotic pack is an assortment of 64 high-quality samples, taken from various analogue and digital drum machines and synthesizers. Each section is organized in batches of 16, for easy navigation.

Sample set includes:

16 Kick Drums

16 Snares & Hits

16 Hi Hats & Cymbals

16 Sound FX & Synth One Shots

    This is a killer circuit pack with 64 sessions of electronic goodness. The sessions progress nicely and maintain a consistent transition. I am very impressed with this approach and how easy it was to put together a high quality performance right away. My 6 year old DJ (wannabe) boys immediately started throwing down some ambient beats and impressed their friends. This circuit pack really brings out some of the best features of the Circuit by keeping it simple, intuitive and most of all, FUN. Thanks Jim and Isotonik for crushing it.
