A very
naughty synth

Circuit
Mono Station is a scheming, manipulative little beast of a machine, with a
deafening roar to be tamed. It’s infectious to use, quick to engage with and
capable of some unpredictable and rather dangerous results.

Just try
and muzzle it

Featuring
three types of analogue distortion effects, a really nasty ring modulator, a
chunky sub-oscillator and step automation for all 53 parameters, Circuit Mono
Station sounds bloody disgusting. It’s an instrument that can be used as an
experimental, polyrhythmic sound design tool – set apart with Bass Station II’s
synth engine, reworked into a paraphonic form. Sequences can benefit from
longer LFOs staying in sync across several notes, perfect for making widely
evolving musical phrases.

Impressive
CV with lots of sequencing experience

Having the
same workflow as the Circuit sequencer and synth, Circuit Mono Station really
is the potty-mouthed child of Novation. The Mod Seq, Swing Sync and a Mutate
function are useful for happy accidents, and the AUX CV output can send complex
modulation signals to the outside world. You can programme notes into the Mod
Seq page to independently control your modular and CV gear with pitch and gate
control via the CV/GATE output.

It’ll say
anything to anyone

With USB
MIDI, MIDI IN/OUT/THRU, CV and GATE connectors, Circuit Mono Station can get in
the face of every piece of gear in its space.
