    The latest in Novation’s Circuit family of grooveboxes has arrived! Circuit Tracks is an extraordinary standalone groovebox for the modern producer. With two refined polyphonic digital synth tracks, four drum tracks, creative FX and on-the-go capabilities, it’s the perfect hands-on device for the agile music maker.

    It’s engineered for immediacy and pure creative expression, making it a performer’s dream. Velocity-sensitive pads and tactile control with customisable patches bring music makers closer to their tracks. Features such as microtiming, probability and pattern mutate allow creators to define their signature sound, and keep inspired.

    Common to all Circuit products is a screen-less workflow, and Circuit Tracks is no different. Fast, intuitive and straightforward, it allows for instinctive creativity, without hesitation. There are no complex menus to navigate and scroll through, just creativity accelerated.

    Circuit Tracks is perfect for creators and performers on the go. Its rugged build quality, compact form factor and rechargeable battery make it the perfect travel partner: never too far away when inspiration hits.

    Despite its size and portability, Circuit Tracks sounds colossal. Two polyphonic synth engines enable creative experimentation and sonic exploration. Hundreds of artist-made presets provide the perfect jumping-off point into moulding a unique sound. What’s more, samples can be loaded from a microSD card, then shaped to perfection and sequenced across the four drums tracks.

    Above all, Circuit Tracks is a studio powerhouse. Equally at home alone or among other music machines, its full-size MIDI in, out, and thru, plus analogue sync out, complements other gear. Two MIDI sequencer tracks enable control and programming of external equipment, from drum machines to effects units. Audio inputs allow external sounds to be brought into and manipulated by Circuit Tracks. Outputs provide monitoring options for all occasions.

    As with all other Novation equipment, Circuit Tracks is supercharged by Novation’s online companion, Components. Using the browser-based or standalone app, users can delve into the synth engine on screen, create patches with custom macros, load samples, make MIDI templates, backup projects, and get new artist-made sounds.

      PRESSRELEASE
      Hamamatsu, Japan, September 5, 2019 — Roland, a leading manufacturer and distributor of electronic musical instruments and professional video products, unveils the MC-707 and MC-101 GROOVEBOXES, two self-contained production tools designed for today’s electronic music creators. These powerful products reintroduce Roland’s iconic GROOVEBOX concept to a new generation of musicians, updated with the very latest sounds and a wide range of customization options. With the versatile MC-707 and MC-101, users can create complete, polished productions with no external gear or easily integrate with modern computer-based music environments.
       

      MC-101 & MC-707
      In 1996, Roland launched the original MC-303 GROOVEBOX to great acclaim, and the popular series evolved with many additional MC models over the next decade. Building on workflows introduced with genre-defining Roland instruments like the TR-808, TR-909, and TB-303, the GROOVEBOX series allowed people without musical training—but with keen musical sensibilities—to create songs quickly and easily, and in some cases, these individuals gave rise to entirely new musical genres and styles. The MC-707 and MC-101 fuse this landmark concept with today’s advanced technologies, giving electronic-focused musicians more creative power than ever before.
      The MC-707 GROOVEBOX offers everything needed to create a song or perform a live set without a computer. Users can immerse themselves in eight-track recording, sequencing, sampling, synthesizers, and studio-grade effects, plus a curated palette of sounds, loops, and phrases. Audio and MIDI can be recorded with deep control over timing, while hands-on faders and knobs inspire in-the-moment creativity.
       


       
      Equipped with Roland's latest sound engine, the MC-707 has all the sounds of legendary Roland rhythm machines and synthesizers, but also looks forward with modern digital and hybrid sounds. The eight-track sequencer is optimized for fluid production of today's electronic-focused music styles, with 16 ultra-sensitive pads for playing or sequencing drum parts, melodic basslines, or polyphonic chord progressions. There’s also a TR-REC step sequencer inherited from Roland’s classic drum machines, perfect for building rhythm parts quickly.
      With its advanced USB audio interface capabilities, the MC-707 easily flows in and out of any computer production setup. Users can record all eight parts to individual DAW tracks and finish a song there, or sample sounds from a DAW to capture backing tracks, stems, and more for live shows.
      The MC-101 GROOVEBOX has all the high-quality sounds, sequencing, and effects of the MC-707, but in a more compact four-track version that’s go-everywhere portable. This professional production tool features a solid-yet-light design and runs for up to five hours on four AA batteries, allowing users to craft sounds, create drum patterns, and compose musical phrases just about anywhere.
