Circuit Mono Station is a scheming, manipulative little beast of a machine, with a deafening roar to be tamed. It’s infectious to use, quick to engage with and capable of some unpredictable and rather dangerous results.
Featuring three types of analogue distortion effects, a really nasty ring modulator, a chunky sub-oscillator and step automation for all 53 parameters, Circuit Mono Station sounds bloody disgusting. It’s an instrument that can be used as an experimental, polyrhythmic sound design tool – set apart with Bass Station II’s synth engine, reworked into a paraphonic form. Sequences can benefit from longer LFOs staying in sync across several notes, perfect for making widely evolving musical phrases.
Having the same workflow as the Circuit sequencer and synth, Circuit Mono Station really is the potty-mouthed child of Novation. The Mod Seq, Swing Sync and a Mutate function are useful for happy accidents, and the AUX CV output can send complex modulation signals to the outside world. You can programme notes into the Mod Seq page to independently control your modular and CV gear with pitch and gate control via the CV/GATE output.
Individually control oscillators
Two oscillators with individual control of sync and tuning parameters.
Get the frequency band you want
High-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB.
Three distortion modes
Classic Bass Station, new fuzz or a mixture of both.
Monophonic and paraphonic
Monophonic and paraphonic modes with individual glide control.
Adaptable modulation system
Four-by-eight modulation matrix that enables complex alteration and routing. The Circuit Mono Station LFOs allow you to decouple synced LFOs from key sync, perfect for making widely evolving musical phrases.
Patches at your fingertips
Load and save up to 64 patches on the device.
Three sequencer tracks
Two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer. HitShift + Sessions to send either Osc 1, Osc 2 or the Mod Seq to the CV/GATE output.
Connect to hardware and software
CV, Gate and modulation outputs for controlling separate hardware. Connect and sync to your music software and MIDI-compatible hardware.Modulate, evolve and process your source through the audio input.
