Isotonik Studios Introduces Circuit Editor PRO & Circuit Patch Store for the Novation Circuit

Circuit Editor PRO for the Novation Circuit from Isotonik Studios on Vimeo.

"In this walkthrough we'll not be delving into sound design but simply showing off the workflow enhancing improvements we've made to our popular Circuit Editor, rebuilding the engine from scratch to massively improve the speed of updates has allowed to us to add core new features such as:

- Both Synth Engines are fully automatable in Ableton Live with the MaxforLive version

- Copy / Paste for the Macro Elements

- Drum Control has been added

- Patch Management has been much improved

- An intelligent Randomiser Function"

P.S. You might remember mention of the new editor from this post.

Additional details including price:


PRICE: £10.00

It's been over a year since we visited Novations headquarters to be first introduced to the Circuit in their development room, this little beast of a Groovebox has gone from strength to strength in the past twelve months growing an avid legion of new fans who have helped the development of the instrument through the Facebook Circuit Owners Group...

We've seen Novation get involved in this group of fans to their credit and it was an honour to be chosen to develop and supply the official Novation Circuit Editor! Now that Novation have released the fourth firmware update, we felt it was time to do the same with our Editor. And so after a few hundred hours more of development time we're delighted to be able to release the Circuit Editor PRO!

Rebuilt from the ground up we've massively improved response times and allowed automation of both synths through Ableton Live via the MaxforLive version. In working with the new Editor Engine we've been able to incorporate the top user requests that we've been collating as well!

Isotonik Studios Factorsynth – Machine Learning Tool for Live

JJ Burred - FactorSynth - Demo from Isotonik Studios on Vimeo.

via Isotonik Studios

"Factorsynth is a new kind of musical tool. It uses machine learning techniques to decompose any input sound into a set of temporal and spectral elements. By rearranging and modifying these elements you can do powerful transformations to your clips, such as removing notes or motifs, creating new ones, randomizing melodies or timbres, changing rhythmic patterns, remixing loops in real time, creating complex sound textures...

Unlike traditional audio effect devices, which take the track’s audio input and generate output in real time, Factorsynth is a clip-based device. It works on audio clips from your Live set that you have selected and loaded into Factorsynth. Once an audio clip has been selected and loaded into Factorsynth, it can then be decomposed into elements. The decomposition process is called factorization, because it is based on a technique called matrix factorization."

Symbiotic - Jim Drones - Novation Circuit Pack - Demo One from Isotonik Studios on Vimeo.

via Isotonik Studios:

"Jim has been one of our most prolific sound desgners for the Novation Circuit. He loves it so much that even after pursuing other synths having sold his original Circuit he dove straight back in and bought a new one to complete this pack.

Unlike Jim's previous packs which focused purely on the sound design of the patches, this new pack comes loaded with Samples and Sessions for you to plug in and play to your hearts content.

The Symbiotic pack for Novation Circuit features 64 patches, 64 samples, and 32 sessions for the wide spectrum of electronic music genres.

These carefully-crafted Circuit elements have been designed with producers of Ambient, Techno, House, Psytrance, Breaks, Electro, Drum and Bass, Dubstep, and Downtempo in mind. From classic synthesizer sounds to the evolving esoteric, Symbiotic breathes new life and options for user creativity into Circuit.

This new batch of 64 patches allows for improved mixing possibilities by providing multi-mode filter versions that can act as a form of quick equalization without as much need to return to editors while creating patterns and sessions. The upper patch section of 32 is mirrored by the lower section of 32, meaning that if a patch doesn’t quite fit in your mix at first, the matching patch in the opposite section offers a contrasting filter type. This means more precise isolation of frequencies, as well as variance of harmonic qualities and richness within your own patterns and session creations.

Consistent Macros

All patches contained in the pack adhere to consistency between their macro assignments.

Macro 1 – Filter Cutoff
Macro 2 – Filter Resonance
Macro 3 – Envelope 1 Attack
Macro 4 – Envelope 1 Decay
Macro 5 – Envelope 1 Sustain
Macro 6 – Envelope 1 Release
Macro 7 – Chorus, Phaser, or Random
Macro 8 – Filter Drive & Distortion

Creative Layering

Symbiotic also offers a multi-mode filter concept to sound design within Circuit. Along with panning and macro adjustments, it can provide a new technique for adding depth to your synths parts. Using corresponding patches from both the upper and lower synth sections on Circuit’s synth parts together allows for combined synth part layers consisting of four oscillators, four LFO’s, six envelopes, and so on.

Samples for All Bass Music Types

Also included in the Symbiotic pack is an assortment of 64 high-quality samples, taken from various analogue and digital drum machines and synthesizers. Each section is organized in batches of 16, for easy navigation.

Sample set includes:

16 Kick Drums
16 Snares & Hits
16 Hi Hats & Cymbals
16 Sound FX & Synth One Shots"

Cosmogonik by LDM Design for Novation Circuit

Demo - Part ONE - Cosmogonik by LDM Design from Isotonik Studios on Vimeo.

Cosmogonik is the first pack for the Novation Circuit from long standing Isotonik Collective member LDM Design. Designed around the theme of Dub Techno you'll find consistent macros and a dark dubby style to the patches, samples and sessions.

We've been banging on at Daniel of LDM Design for monhts now to finish the Novation Circuit Pack he's been working on for ages. Originally inspired when building apps for the ROLI block and controlling the Circuits Synth Engine he;'s taken his love for Techno and expandded it into a mammoth pack of Dubby Goodness.

The Cosmogonik pack is based around the sounds of Dub Techno & Ambient but also influenced by deeper Dubstep and Halfstep DnB, and many of the sounds will work with other minimal and deep genres of electronic music.

Many of the chord sounds are designed to be used with a generous amount of delay and reverb, as can be heard in the included sessions.

In line with our most popular packs for the Novation Circuit the majority of the patches have the same mapping for the Macros except for one or 2 which are a little more customized

Timbre 1
Timbre 2
Filter Envelope
Pack Contents

32 patches
32 samples
16 sessions
Samples include 6 kicks, 8 closed hats, 6 open hats, 5 snares and 7 other percussion/SFX sounds.

Sigabort - LaunchControl X Control Surface Script for Ableton Live - Walkthrough

Sigabort - LaunchControl X Control Surface Script for Ableton Live - Walkthrough from Isotonik Studios on Vimeo.

"Sigaborts latest creation is an extended Control Surface script for the Novation LaunchControl that adds additional functionality for its use with Ableton Live...

In this video we walkthrough the new User 6 mode that allows you control 16 parameters at once with Ableton Lives BlueHand AutoMapping functionality...

And we show how it can be combined with our PrEditor Mapping Utility and the LaunchSync Series to define which parameters are AutoMapped to and sync the Red Box we've added to the like of the AKAI APC40, the Ableton PUSH 1 & 2 and the Novation LaunchPad family..."

And the press release:

"We here at Isotonik Studios have a fascination with small form MIDI controllers, they maybe diminuitive in size but with a little Sigabort magic they can pack a ton of functionality within them. The next in our series of Control Surface Scripts for Ableton Live is for Novations LaunchControl, an 8 button 16 Encoder mini beast...

Given the number of Factory and User Pages of settings we decided to add our trademark AutoMapping Upgrade. Switch to User 6 Mode and whatever is being controlled by the BlueHand Automapping feature of Live will now give over 16 parameters of control to the encoders for each bank!


Of course working in banks of 16 is a different concept to the standard 8's, as such you may find that you want to tweak how Devices, Instruments, VST's, AU's and MaxforLive devices are AutoMapped. Good job we've made this budget script PrEditor compatible, as you can build up the maps in the assigned 16's and even map parameters previously hidden to all but the Ableton Push & Push TWO!


And not only that, with our LaunchSync Series you can additionally sync the on screen Ring Focus Box to other supported controllers, adding two rows of encoders to a Novation LaunchPad or AKAI APC40 amongst others...

In line with our other Control Surface Scripts you can define a set of options to personalise your controller even further.

Choose between different modes for displaying return tracks
Set a maximum number of return tracks to display
Set how many tracks are moved left and right when moving around the set
Choose whether the master track is displayed, allowing master volume to be controlled

OPERATION_1 - Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Yuri Wong

video upload by Isotonik Studios

MACROS DEMO - OPERATION_1 - Novation Circuit Tracks Pack by Yuri Wong

video upload by Isotonik Studios

"The OP-1 has long been a device of creative inspiration, and now those sounds can be accessed directly on the Circuit Tracks, in a set of 128 patches emulating 8 of the OP-1’s iconic engines:

Cluster, Digital, DNA, Dr Wave, DSynth, String, FM, Phase & Pulse

The goal while creating OPERATION_1 was to get maximum musical expressiveness for the patches, with the original sounds as the starting point. Each Circuit sound was crafted to be as close to the OP-1 patch as musically possible. For movements or textures where the Circuit Tracks engine couldn’t emulate, effort was made to make it come as close as the Circuit engine would allow, yet still maintain the usefulness of the sound i.e. to make it as functional and creatively inspiring as possible for music creation.

Here’s what’s in OPERATION_1:

- 128 OP-1 Patches, Recreated by an OP-1 Connoisseur -

Immerse yourself in the distinctive sounds of the OP-1, accurately reproduced for your Circuit. Each patch is crafted and A/B-ed with the original OP-1 for maximum authenticity. You can now explore the spectrum of inspiring OP-1 sounds within the Circuit.

- 8 Macros for Limitless Tweakability -

Tweak and transform your sounds with 8 carefully programmed macros in every patch, allowing you to shape each sound to suit any creative vision. Every individual patch has it’s own unique response to the Macros, programmed specifically for that sound. Find your own unique sounds, spark ideas and break out of creative ruts.

- 64 Original Drum Sounds -

Inspired by the creative kits on the OP-1, these kicks, snares, hats and percussion are crafted with versatility in mind, covering basics and beyond.

- 16 Demo Projects -

Two projects demos per ‘engine’ for each of the eight engines, to showcase the versatility of the sounds and to inspire ideas for your own tracks.

Why Choose This Pack?

Crafted by a Specialist: Yuri Wong has created many popular tracks with the OP-1. The iconic stock sounds of the OP-1 have taken many months of work to be meticulously recreated for the Circuit.
Made for Exploration: Each of the 8 macros are customised for every patch, allowing for ‘tweak and listen’ sonic discovery — perfectly in-line with the ‘no-screen’ philosophy of the Circuit.
A Synth Upgrade: Transform your Circuit into a synth powerhouse, with sounds rivalling the best out there.
Experience the magic of OP-1 sounds on your Novation Circuit. Discover the joy of exploration and get your musical inspiration flowing.

Midiwaves by Ned Rush and Isotonik Studios

video upload by Isotonik Studios

"Midi Waves is an experimental midi note generator and modulator.

- LFO Generated MIDI Messages - pitch, velocity, duration and gate
- Each element has its own LFO so they can be offset from each other
- All snapped to a musical scale
- Export the MIDI to record on another track to capture your awesome accidents!


Midi messages such as pitch, velocity, duration and gate are generated using LFOs that can be all set independently to create midi events and patterns that could otherwise be hard to achieve using a sequencer or a keyboard.

Because each item in the list has its own LFO, each of those LFOs can be offset from each other to create these unusual cascading events that go in and out of phase and go off kilter with each, other but are still snapped to a musical scale so they can sound quite pleasing and can enable you to come up with very interesting, beautiful phrases or perhaps weird ones or scary ones or perhaps nothing at all. It's entirely up to you!

In Live, the output of the device can be routed to another Midi track where the notes it generates can be captured to regular midi, enabling you to capture moments that inspire.
