The synth has two oscillators, three distortion modes, plus one multi-mode filter with high-pass, low-pass or band-pass. With Circuit Mono Station, the sync and tuning parameters of its two oscillators can be individually controlled. It also offers four waveshapes (sawtooth, triangle, square and sample + hold), a sub-oscillator, ring modulation and noise generation. Users can get the frequency band they want by applying high-pass, low-pass and band-pass filters with slopes of 12dB and 24dB.
In addition, Circuit Mono Station introduces a powerful overdrive. Both monophonic and paraphonic modes are available, with each oscillator individually controlled by its own sequencer. There are three sequencer tracks: two oscillator sequencers and one modulation sequencer. Users can alter Gate length, switch patterns instantly, choose sync rate and mutate patterns.
A four-by-eight modulation matrix makes it possible to route from LFO with four waveshapes, envelope, sequencer or velocity, enabling complex modulation for pitch, pulse-width, amp, filter, distortion or CV. Up to 64 patches can be loaded and saved on the device, right at the user's fingertips. Circuit Mono Station controls separate hardware via CV, Gate and modulation outputs, and has MIDI In, Out and Thru, so other MIDI gear can be connected. Via USB, Circuit Mono Station can be plugged into Mac or PC, where unlimited patches can be managed using Components.
If you use Ableton Live, you need a Launchpad. It displays your session view on 64 multicoloured pads, letting you launch multiple clips at once and control anything else in Live. It's an evolution in creating electronic music and this mini version does all the same cool stuff as the normal Launchpad. The only difference is that it's exactly 22.917% smaller, so it hardly takes up any room. It's also built like a tank, so you don't have to worry about throwing it around.
As well as launching clips, you can use the mini 64-pad grid to play drum racks, create awesome light show videos and even control your mixer. there are also seperate buttons around the outside of the grid, whi ch you can use to apply killer FX or assign to whichever triggers and controls you fancy. Just image the possibilities if you combine this with Max for Live...
Forget about power sockets and drivers: Launchpad Mini is fully USB bus-powered, totally class-compliant and comes with everything you need to get started, including Ableton Live Lite.
You can even use your grid to control FL Studio's performance mode, or grab a Camera Connect Kit and use it with your iPadr to control Launchpad App. If you want to get really experimental, connect multiple Launchpad Minis together or build yourself a fully hands-on Ableton Live studio setup by combining with Launch Control, Launch Control XL or Launchkey.
