You Wish Your Monosynth Was This Dirty

Circuit Mono Station is a scheming, manipulative little beast of a machine, with a deafening roar to be tamed. It’s infectious to use, quick to engage with and capable of some unpredictable and rather dangerous results.
 
Featuring three types of analogue distortion effects, a really nasty ring modulator, a girthy sub-oscillator and step automation for all 53 parameters, Circuit Mono Station sounds bloody disgusting. It’s an instrument that can be used as an experimental, polyrhythmic sound design tool – set apart with Bass Station II’s synth engine, reworked into a paraphonic form.
 
Having the same workflow as the Circuit sequencer and synth, Circuit Mono Station really is the potty-mouthed child of Novation. The Mod Seq, Swing Sync and a Mutate function are useful for happy accidents, and the AUX CV output can send complex modulation signals to the outside world.
 
Circuit Mono Station has USB MIDI, MIDI IN/OUT/THRU, CV and GATE hook-ups, and will even bother to stick around long enough to say good morning.

Key Features:
  • Two oscillators with individual control of sync and tuning parameters
  • High-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB
  • Three distortion modes
  • Choose monophonic or paraphonic modes with individual glide control
  • Four-by-eight modulation matrix that enables complex alteration and routing
  • Load and save up to 64 patches on the device

  • 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads
  • 16 scale types
  • Changeable sync rates
