Novation Circuit Tracks is a compact and portable groove box that builds upon the success of the original Circuit. The Circuit Tracks is designed to be used in the studio or on the go for professional producers and DJs. Like the original Circuit, the Circuit Tracks has two on‑board synths and four sample‑based drum voices, all played and sequenced in various ways via a 4×8 velocity‑sensitive pad matrix.
In spite of its slimmer design, the Circuit Tracks features full-size DIN sockets for the MIDI in, out and thru connection on the back panel, which is a clear upgrade on the 3.5mm sockets and breakout cables required to connect external MIDI gear to the original Circuit. USB connection for hooking up to a computer is now via the smaller USB-C connector, which doubles as a power supply. There’s also a microSD card slot to expand the storage and a new pair of mono audio inputs.

Two synth tracks, two MIDI tracks and four drum tracks: everything you need to create and perform music
The agile groovebox
Lose yourself in a hands-on production workflow. Let your creativity thrive.
Acclaimed, hands-on sequencer
Create 32-step patterns, which can be chained to create sequences up to 256 steps in length, per track. Assign patterns to scenes to arrange and perform full-length songs. Go off-grid with microtiming, and keep your music evolving with probability and pattern mutate.
Expand your sonic capabilities with two refined polyphonic digital synth tracks. Load your own samples and shape them to perfection across drum tracks.
Total control of your setup
Pilot your studio with two dedicated MIDI tracks, capable of sending notes and CC automation.
FX on everything
Douse synths, drums, and incoming audio in lush reverb and delay. Then make your mix pump with sidechain and punch with the master compressor.
Connect to your studio with full-size five-pin MIDI in, out, and thru, and analogue sync out. Apply effects to two audio inputs, and listen through stereo out or with headphones.
Never stop creating
Insert a microSD card to save and recall thousands of synth patches, samples and projects. Load in over three minutes worth of audio across 64 samples slots, alongside 128 patches and 64 projects per pack.
The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to four hours of battery life, so you can make beats on the move.
