Circuit Firmware

To unlock the latest functionality of your Circuit, you’ll need to update your unit with the latest Firmware. Circuit v.1.6 will transform your unit, packed with improved features to supercharge your groovebox.

New in 1.6


We knew how much people wanted to pan on Circuit, so we listened to our users, and our engineers did everything they could to make it happen. Panning has been the single most requested feature of the community to date. It enables users to create audio landscapes or integrate with their favourite hardware.

Drum Micro Steps

While users are making the best of Circuit with music-making, we're pushing boundaries within Novation HQ. From this came Drum Micro Steps. Using Drum Micro Steps as a beat-building tool, Circuit v1.6 adds instant fills and stutter effects to users’ workflows, retriggering a sample up to six times within each step. J Dilla fans should probably board here.

Settings View

Is Circuit’s brightness intruding when the room darkens? Light Dim will help to set the mood for all sorts of romantic occasions with its brightness setting. The features above are accompanied by FX Mute, which can be used to mute any unwanted FX, making it easier to connect with external hardware processors.
