Novation is back with a brand new, innovative monosynth, the Novation Circuit Mono Station (originating out of the popular Bass Station II.) The synth features three sequencer tracks and 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads in a four-by-eight modulation matrix.
The Mono station is absolutely jam packed with features, leading to infinite synthesis opportunities. There are two oscillators on board offering four waveshapes (sawtooth, triangle, square and sample + hold), a sub-oscillator, ring modulation and noise generation. Both monophonic and paraphonic modes are available, with each oscillator controlled by its own sequencer. The oscillators can also be altered by three types of distortion and a multi-mode filter (offering high, low and band pass.)
The modulation matrix allows you to route from LFO with four waveshapes, envelope, sequencer or velocity, enabling complex modulation for pitch, pulse-width, amp, filter, distortion or CV.
There’s also the option to connect and control external hardware with the Mono synth, using the MIDI In, Out and Thru port found on the back of the unit. The units audio input port can be used with the mod sequencer to modulate and process incoming sources.
When plugged into Mac or PC via USB, unlimited patches can be managed using Novation’s Components software. You will also be able to load and save up to 64 of your own patches on the device.
