Novation “Circuit Tracks” Groovebox
Novation’s new Circuit Tracks groovebox is an all-in-one music creation/performance studio that follows in the footsteps of the original Circuit from 2015. With two polyphonic synth tracks, two MIDI tracks, four drum tracks, 32 RGB-backlit velocity-sensitive pads, and 28 RGB-backlit click buttons, you’ve got a LOT of music production power at your fingertips.
The versatility of the Circuit Tracks is so extensive that I (a non-expert in this field) can’t possibly cover the insane amount of stuff you can do with it. There’s a reason the YouTube videos you see for this thing tend to be around half an hour (that one’s NSFW for language) or longer:
On the back of the device you have a USB-C port, a microSD card slot, three 5-pin MIDI ports (in, out, thru), four kinds of audio outputs, and two inputs, along with a slot for a Kensington MiniSaver lock.
The Circuit Tracks also has a built-in lithium-ion battery — rechargeable through the USB-C port — that allows it to run for up to four hours, which is handy for those times when inspiration hits or you need to make beats on the go.
