First announced on May 9th, Novation's latest Circuit Rhythm is here.

Details via Novation:

"Introducing Novation Circuit Rhythm

Sample, make beats, and perform like never before, with the latest addition to the Circuit family. The wait is finally over. The next addition to our Novation Circuit family is here to bring new life to beatmaking and turn samples in to stellar tracks. With eight sample tracks, built-in recording, performance effects, on-the-go capabilities and more, Circuit Rhythm is the beatmaker’s best friend. In a brand-new direction for Novation, Circuit Rhythm puts sampling in the spotlight and provides a whole host of fresh features aimed to take beatmaking to new heights.

Sampling is at the heart of Circuit Rhythm. Record straight into Circuit Rhythm through the audio inputs, and instantly capture sound from records, synths, or even a phone. Designed with a focus on immediate sampling and artistic expression, users can capture creative ideas quickly and stay inspired.

With a lightning-fast sequencer, beatmakers can start turning those samples into killer beats with ease. Whether playing in drums, making basslines or chopping straight from vinyl, music makers can play back samples however they want and listen through stereo out or with headphones. Re-sample and sculpt sounds with limitless creative possibilities.

Circuit Rhythm’s eight sample tracks, each with their own 32-step patterns chainable for 256 steps per track, gives creators sample space to find their groove and craft killer tracks, all with an intuitive screenless workflow, common to all Circuit products. Stay quantised or give beats real human feel and go off-grid and record to micro steps. Keep beats interesting with probability and pattern mutate.

Performers can take to the stage with Circuit Rhythm and bring vibrant performance- focused Grid FX to their beats. Give samples character with beat repeat, vinyl simulation, and many more effects to really create massive sound. Circuit Rhythm is well-equipped to handle any scenario and is brilliant for making dope beats in the studio or used to capture creative ideas for beatmakers on the move. Make Circuit Rhythm part of a studio set up with full-size five-pin MIDI in, out, and thru, and analogue sync out, and monitoring through audio or headphone outputs.

Circuit Rhythm is completely portable. With a compact and tough build, built-in rechargeable battery and microSD card slot for expandable storage or loading in samples and projects, music makers never have to stop creating with Circuit Rhythm.

With Novation’s online companion Components, Circuit Rhythm’s creative potential expands even further. Users can dive into Circuit Rhythm using the browser-based or standalone desktop app, and load samples, backup projects, download artist-made soundpacks, and create custom patches so that creators can give their music production their unique flavour.

First Day with the MPC Studio

video upload by Gabe Miller Music


Adding to the MPC lineup, the new MPC Studio delivers a serious music production and recording system for the modern music creator.

Cumberland, RI USA (September 21, 2021) — Akai Professional, a leading manufacturer of music equipment for performers and producers, is proud to announce its newest music production system, the MPC Studio.

The new MPC Studio redefines tactile control with a hardware offering that intuitively delivers a modern and deep level of command over the music production process. Together with the MPC2 Desktop Software DAW for both Mac and PC, MPC Studio offers a total creation package for the serious modern beat-maker and music producer.

MPC Performance and Control

At the heart of MPC Studio are the world-renowned 16 full-size pressure and velocity sensitive RGB-backlit pads with aftertouch. These pads optimize your performance to play and record patterns, notes, chords, and more with sound precision and an accurate visual display of velocity and pad groupings.

The new assignable Touch Strip will elevate any performance with invigorating expression. Add articulation to a string or guitar instrument, add modulation or pitch bend to a keyboard synth, control Note Repeat for hi-hats, snares, effects and much more. The assignable Touch Strip will quickly become your favorite tool to shape and sculpt your performances and productions.

The full color LCD ensures users will stay locked into every creative moment with vibrant visual feedback. Scroll through track names, plugin instrument presets, browse categories, monitor parameter values when dialing in effects, or trim and chop samples. The color LCD makes work more efficient by enabling you to keep your eyes on the controller, and your focus squarely on the music. Navigate sessions big and small with dedicated MPC Transport controls, complete with Locate buttons for time saving and precise location spotting.
