Novation Announce Launch of V1.3 Software Update

Novation  has announced a v1.3 firmware update for the Circuit groovebox, making it much more streamlined and powerful than its previous incarnation.

Following a wealth of user feedback from dedicated owner’s groups, Novation has added several features to the software to enhance Circuit’s functionality. Novation recommends that all users update their Circuit to get the most out of their groovebox.

The new features make the update particularly exciting to new and existing users. The sample flip functions allows the user to create multi sample drum lines on each of Circuit's drum tracks ,whereas previously this would have been restricted to one drum sound per drum track.

The sample preview ability gives the user the power to play and preview their samples without programming them into a pre-existing pattern. It speeds up the drum programming process immensely and ultimately affords the user more time to experiment and audition different sounds.

A now more comprehensive sound management tool, Circuit v1.3 allows the user to change the placement of samples so that they can group selected samples into similar sounds so that it is easier to remember which sample is on which pad. Any pre-existing bugs or errors that were in existence on the previous software such as the timing of session switching have been rectified, leaving the user to enjoy a consistent and glitch free experience.
