    Product description

    Novation Circuit Rhythm is a sampler for the spontaneous. Lightweight and compact, with four hours of battery life, this beatmaking machine can grab samples anywhere. Then, it’s up to the artist. Thanks to powerful controls and processing, users can sculpt, slice, reverse, loop, resample and play chromatically, all with one piece of hardware. The results are simple to store for later with the MicroSD slot. Deep connectivity makes it easy to incorporate the sampler into your studio workflow, too. Guitar Center recommends Circuit Rhythm for getting away from the desk and finding inspiration in the world.
