Circuit Rhythm vs Tracks

Novation Circuit Rhythm vs Tracks – Review and tutorial

Circuit Rhythm is the non-identical twin brother of Circuit Tracks from Novation, with new sampling and sample mangling features and real time audio effects, though in comparison to Circuit Tracks, at the expense of the two synth engines and a few other features.

In this video I look at the differences between the two in detail, then an in depth look at what’s new in Circuit Rhythm, an overview of similar features for those of you not familiar with Circuit Tracks, and finally, pros and cons compared to alternative instruments. I also play all 16 preset patterns at the end of the video:
