This is a musical ideas starter for me. It is great that I can use it as a standalone instrument first, without connecting it even to power source cable, since it works with batteries also. You can easily create the melody or rhythm playing in your head and develop the basic musical ideas very fast.
It sounds great. But it is also very easy to change or modify the synth or drum patches via the Novation Components website. Not to mention the Novation Circuit can be used for sequencing other hardware synthesizers, which for example I am doing with the Korg Minilogue.
It can be great live performance tool.
I am still not sure if it can be used for creating a full length track, because of some limitations regarding number of patterns that can be chained together, or that it is only a 4-Part drum machine, but it can be surly done by combining it with other synths or a software like Ableton Live, Cubase or others and recording its audio output or MIDI data.

Not Just A Groove Box

FC Music , 01.12.2018
I was originally looking for a poly-synth with a sequencer. I looked at all of the other major competitors and found that none had the features for the price of the Circuit. But hey, they don't just throw in one sequencer you get two poly sequencers and two Novation Nova synths that are playable by either external keyboard or external external sequencer as well as the onboard pads and sequencers. This takes this genius device to a different planet. So you can also sequence your external gear as well either through usb or midi out. The drum sequencers are limited to 4 tracks which can be sparse but you do have the ability to load your own samples (although I haven't tried it yet).
Highly Recommended for all electronic musicians.
Pros- 2 x 128 sequencers, 2 x Ultra Nova synth engines
DIN MIDI in and out. Also acts as an ASIO interface but with no external input.
Editable synth patches to allow customisable sound design
Sequence chaining.
Stores 32 x 8 x 16 Step sequences.
Has all of the velocity, gate, scale, tempo, midi clock, features.
Good onboard FX
Easy to learn
Price
Novation are to be commended for continuously updating this product via firmware releases since its launch a few years ago.
Cons - very few really other than sample capacity but sometimes less is more as you are invited to explore all of the options for really interesting sound design.

I already have a number of analogue synths and this sits very, very comfortably with them as part of my dawless set up. Working with a daw is just as enjoyable.
