Novation continues to deliver exciting new features to the Novation Circuit Groovebox with each firmware update. Previous updates have brought amazing new features such as Sample Flip and the popular Circuit Components suite for arranging your productions. The latest firmware, Circuit v1.4 brings even more features to Circuit, making it an even more powerful addition to any live or studio performance system.

New Features in V1.4

The latest update brings a new pattern-length parameter for the drum tracks to enable polyrhythmic drum sequences, so you are no longer limited to only 16 steps. Also, it’s now possible to switch each track’s patterns on the fly so you can create fast-changing fills and pattern-change effects. You can even change the colour of your session on board the controller instead of having to go through software editor like in previous updates.

Upgrading to V1.4 also provides new setup options for using your Circuit to control your other MIDI hardware devices. The clock setting have also been improved, allowing you to take independent over both transmit and receive sections of the Midi clock.

Finally, upgrading to 1.4 gives you access to brand new samples, synth patches and sessions to help inspire your creations.
