The Circuit Rhythm Standalone Beatmaking Sampler from Novation is a versatile sampler for making and performing beats. Record samples directly to the hardware, then slice, sculpt and resample your sounds effortlessly. Capture your groove quantized or off-grid into the sequencer, and layer up across eight sample tracks. Invigorate your live set with performance FX: embrace imperfection with lo-fi tape, stutter your mix with beat repeat, and more. Integrate Circuit Rhythm into your studio, or unplug and create anywhere utilizing the built-in rechargeable battery.

Circuit Rhythm’s portability makes it the best friend of the beatmaker on the go. With a built-in rechargeable battery and microSD card for expandable storage, you can create, perform and store full-length beats all in one place. Push your beat-making further and transform samples into incredible tracks with Circuit Rhythm. Tweak samples to perfection, edit patterns on the fly and build beats in no time with a streamlined screenless workflow and a lightning-fast sequencer.

Make beats with high-quality artist sounds out of the box, or plug your phone, turntable, or synths into Circuit Rhythm and record sounds directly to the machine, then process and resample them. With eight flexible sample tracks you can immediately play back samples however you choose, whether you’re chopping straight from vinyl, making basslines and melodies, or punching in drum grooves live.

Bring killer highs and drops to your live sets with a DJ-style master filter and a wide range of performance effects. Embrace imperfection with Vinyl Simulation & Digitiser, stutter your mix with Beat Repeat and Gater, turn back time with Reverser, and explore new timbres with Auto-Filter and Phaser for a truly dynamic sound. With Grid FX, you can give samples new life.

Circuit Rhythm’s firmware 2.0 update brings new editable Grid FX, Beat Match, Fixed Length Recording and Sample Record for greater flexibility with beatmaking.
