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.
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
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.
