Novation Circuit Editor Pro Released

The Novation Circuit Editor from Isotonik just got a massive shot in the arm and has gone "pro". Here's all the details and a video overview.  

If you've been one of the many happy users of Novation Circuit then you're likely to feel even happier with the new Novation Circuit Editor Pro from Isotonik Studios. It's been rebuilt from scratch and includes a standalone and Max4Live version. Some of the highlights include copy/paste macro elements, more drum control, and a pretty awesome randomiser. Plus there's the Circuit patch store! Does it get much better than this?

Here's the official details from our friends at Isotonik:

It's been over a year since we visited Novations headquarters to be first introduced to the Circuit in their development room, this little beast of a Groovebox has gone from strength to strength in the past twelve months growing an avid legion of new fans who have helped the development of the instrument through the Facebook Circuit Owners Group...

We've seen Novation get involved in this group of fans to their credit and it was an honour to be chosen to develop and supply the official Novation Circuit Editor! Now that Novation have released the fourth firmware update, we felt it was time to do the same with our Editor. And so after a few hundred hours more of development time we're delighted to be able to release the Circuit Editor PRO!

Rebuilt from the ground up we've massively improved response times and allowed automation of both synths through Ableton Live via the MaxforLive version. In working with the new Editor Engine we've been able to incorporate the top user requests that we've been collating as well!

Available in both Mac and Windows Standalone versions along with a MaxforLive version for use and automation within Ableton LIve.


Last month we released our first set of Patch Banks through our Circuit Patch store, the response was phenomenal and exceeded everyones expectations. Rather than sit on our laurels we wanted to release a new set of packs to coincide with the Circuit Editor PRO launch and so we're proud to bring on board a new set of Isotonik Circuit Artists & their Patch Banks to include:

My Panda Shall Fly - Brutal Cacophony

Tom Cosm - Naughty & Nice

Lightfinger - Volume ONE

Emynona - Mind Travellers

Each artists unique approach to the Circuit shines through in their patches, taking hours of work to create and refine you can see a demo for each pack within the links above.
