Not really a Circuit

Jim Jones, 13.01.2018
While the Circuit is something you pick to turn an idea quickly into music, the Mono Station is more about sound design, something you'd pick for a patch idea.
The Circuit is more an all-around solution, while the Mono Station is pretty specific in it's purpose and use.
+ easy to use Circuit sequencer with 64 steps/pattern, 8 pattern/session (for OSC 1, OSC 2 and Mod)
+ each knob/fader movement can be recorded and saved
+ session and patch memory
+ lots of sound-shaping options
+ 3 different types of distortion
+ audio in which allows to manipulate the incoming audio
+ good connectivity (MIDI in, out and thru, analogue clock in and out, CV, gate and aux CV output and USB for MIDI and firmware updates)
+ great for Bass sounds but not limited to it

- requires some knowledge about analog synthesis
- price

Obviously it's not a Groovebox like the Circuit. However it's a great addition to the Circuit as it opens up more sonically possibilities. The audio-in turns the Mono Station in an advanced effect processor.
While there is some kind of learning curve it's pretty hands-on and a great piece of gear. A little pricey though.

If you look for analog sound with patch memory, sequencer and distortion effects built-in, while being able to process external audio, then the Mono Station is a pretty good choice. Recommended.
