Love the sound of this thing and the Circuit sequencer is fantastic. I wouldn't mind a built-in delay, but maybe it's better to just add an external pedal.
Samuel Hoffman
Sweet paraphonic synth with amazing sequencing! Will take a while to fully master this one...
A very nice little synth/sequencer and easy to use. Great value for money
If the Bass Station and the Circuit had a baby... Absolute beast, and we can expect Novation to upgrade it with time as usual to make it even better and to add features that we missed. That's why they are the BEST !!
Christopher Kerr
Amazingly intuitive and badass bass synth! At first glance seems like a simple little box but has quite a bit of depth and tweakability!
Timothy David Hobbs
I really like this.
Having owned the original Circuit, I was excited to try out the Mono Station. What a sound this thing has! The filter has a great vibe to it, and the raw sound has quite a bit of character. And let's not forget the modulation options! There are so many way to modulate and automate the parameters on the Mono Station. It has a cleverly design modulation matrix AND, it was record your realtime tweaks and moves. Finally, you can even step sequence parameters in it's own mod sequence track! I wish more synths would do that!
Ben Hipkiss
What can I say, what a great little machine, endless fun and really interesting rhythm productions which are a result of a fine sequencer. Buy before you try😉
First days: 5 stars! Nice synth with lots of possibilities, hope, I'll get them all time after time. Novation quality, good knobs, could be about 25% bigger for my fingers, but it's working well... ; )
Richard Osborn
Got an email from novation (I already have the sublime Bass Station 2) with a discount code for their superb Circuit Mono Station (proves that signing up for email newsletters does actually pay off!). So I made the plunge. I now have two great synths and an intuitive sequencer! The purchase process was very simple (and the price was great with the discount!) and I was kept constantly up to date about order progress and delivery progress - the package turned up within just 3 days! I'm still getting to grips with the new 'pad' format but loving it so far... What I'm really impressed with novation (owned by Focusrite) is that the really, really respect their user base and look after their customers. Both the Bass Station 2 and the Circuit Mono Station have had several very major updates via firmware. Not only does this prove that these products are still being developed (after several years!), the updates were HUGE! For that Bass Station 2, firmware updates have firstly turned it from a monophonic to paraphonic synthesizer! With overlays being added recently allowing for a different sound on each key! And for the Circuit Mono Station, its recent firmware update has turned it into (or added) an analogue drum machine! Well done novation for constantly improving your already great products. This is a company that really looks after us, its customers - thanks!
Lars Frueauff
Unique synth with an amazing seq. But you have to learn to manage this synth. I love my CS :-)
Maxime Bourbonnais
Surprisingly powerful little synth thanks to the integrated step sequencer and its ability to modulate per step. Really happy I made the jump and tried it: it will find a cozy and useful place in my studio.
Solid bass sounds, cv integrations and ongoing updates. My circuit doesn’t have to be alone anymore
Paul Mabley
The only problem I had was lack of a detailed manual but there are plenty of web tutorials to get up to speed.
Tyler F
all good!!
K. von Hörsten
Great Instrument with fantastic Features. The Sound of Mono Station is powerful
Gary Schiffer
I can't say enough good things about the Novation products I have been lucky enough to aquire, and they are pure brilliance. There is no buyer's remorse because a year later your product is likely to be even better and more capable than when you bought it. Novation makes magic items.
Ahmet Mengüç
Quality of this product is really good especially knobs . it is really comfortable and it has smooth transition .
Phil Holt
Performs as expected. Great build quality easy to use and integrated into my existing set up with no issues
Bill Howe
A Bass Station 2 synth engine, coupled with Circuit's sequencing power and performance capabilities, alongside Novation's ongoing commitment to firmware improvement and innovation, all in one handy box... what more could you wish for?
Sounds great, and pretty straightforward to use. It's great to have most of the controls in the open.
Devin Anderson
Fantastic little beast. All analogue, and all gritty for great bass aand lead sounds. Makes for a great addition to my studio.
Kev M (East London)
When I first saw this item on Youtube videos, I thought this would be a 5 minute wonder and dust collector. After watching many video reviews, I saw that this could actually be useful and took the plunge. What an incredibly versatile instrument. Seriously spruces up my projects and ticks all the boxes for looks, playability, and inspiration. With no set way to rig this thing up, my only barrier is my imagination. I can use it at the centre of my operations or to diversify another instrument. Go and check it out in a store and see for yourself. Novation rocks!
Engin Al
It's just been few hours since I've got it. This is the first analog synthesizer I've got so I don't have much to compare. But so far it's really fun and configurable in so many ways. Besides 4x6 mod matrix and mod sequencer, the freedom to set parameters by step is just incredible.
Jeff Brooks
Well worth the standard price, but at 50% off an absolute steal. Very happy
Christian Fardin
So powerfull
Peter Ver
Great sequencing capabilities, good sound, really hands-on machine.
Timo W.
A versatile little machine, and fun to play with.
A spectacular synth riff machine
Kam Lung Chau
I have a Bass station 2, four Novation Circuits and this is my second Mono Station, if I won I want to by a Peak.
Shugo NODA
I got this with 50%off coupon... It is impossible to get such a nice sound and nice machine as this price. I am really enjoying the "tweaking" the sound. The position as a standalone synth, this is so outstanding, unique and fun. Thank you!
Claudio Lauretti
Una macchina incredibile! Ha dato nuova vita al mio setup!!! Intuitiva e potente!
Sounds great and the workflow just clicks for me. Within 24 hours of getting it, I'd already finished two tracks on which I used it extensively. Fun and inspiring.
Only had it 3 days and loving it already
Brian Addison
Great synth. Easy to use and great sounds
I only had this for a couple of days but I'm already addicted! Fun and easy to play, very happy with my purchase!
The most underated piece of gear on the market. The 50% april discount was a thief, thank you so much for it.
Daniel Bahn
Had the deal of my life. Great Gear !!!
Jerome Barbier
Already a happy owner of a Circuit classic, this one is really good for adding up analog sounds to my tracks. There is no AA batteries powering so it could be frustrating for mobile people. This is not an issue for me. However the lack of speaker is my main concern since I planned to link this device with my other Circuit to get more sounds (since this one does integrates drums parts). So I remove a star for this issue that makes me plug a mixer and speakers to use both products together. Overall, I'm happy with the product but the Circuit classic is much more versatile to my uses.
Manuel Giorgi
Awesome synth! Very simple and funny to play! Rich of features, but still simple to use. It's a little gem with a huge voice!
Bob Gennovario
Would have paid full price for this CMS but 50% off is even better. A fantastic, analogue synth and a great companion to the Novation Circuit.
Stefan P
List price maybe a bit steep but watch out for campaigns. Amazing product. Well built. Sounds awesome and the user interface is very intuitive (as usual with Novation products). Firmware updates adds a ton of new features. 10/10 would buy again!
Allen Kho
The sequencer is fun and versatile and the sound of the circuit monostation is great. I like that the sound parameters can be automated and I can program different sound per patch. I own the circuit and one circuit mono-station already, but took opportunity of offer to get another one. One is use for analog drum sequence and another for lead. I sync all 3 circuits with just 1/8 inch audio cables for midi. Thru mode on the monostation is great. If there is same offer for peak or bassstation 2, may be tempted to add them in the future!
Jürgen Morweiser
Highly recommended.
Brandon Sarkis
Excellent mono synth for bass and leads. The mod matrix is amazing as is the sequencer. Highly recommended.
Jonathan Lefavour
Great. I like it a lot. I'm very excited about this.
I can't give it 5 stars *yet* because I'm not sure if I even know what to expect from it.
The Circuit Mono Station is really cool. It’s a high end analog mono synth, mixed with the brilliant sequencing and control that Novation developed for the Circuit. It’s a great combination that I know will occupy a unique place in my studio. Very strong quality build, as well—I’m impressed.
Awesome synth!
RAY Pate
Amazing piece of gear can’t wait to get this into new and interesting gear combinations.
patrick berry
There is nothing like this machine out here. It's a one of a kind analog synth and it's absolutely amazing.
Richard Hooper
An amazing unit to compliment the circuit or any other equipment. With the coupon code - this was a no brainer! I am a huge fan of Novation quality and service.
Romain Deflandre
Awesome synth. mind blowing sequence in a couple of minutes.
Fantastic monosynth with a great sequencer. This unit pairs well with other drum and synth hardware out there. A great compact implementation of the Bass Station II sound engine that takes it in new directions!
Kent McQueen
What happens when Novation crosses a Bass Station II with a Circuit? Whatever it is, the Circuit Mono Station is no joke. I have had the Circuit Mono Station for less than 24 hours and it has been quite impressive sounding and fun. I'm fond of low end my Bass Station II, and older Super Bass Station Rack, can produce. So, I've been playing more with bass sounds and riffs and haven't really dwelt on making leads except checking out the presets. All around the synth engine is impressive. The interface is tactile and intuitive like the Circuit. I've been a Novation fan since I bought a brand new Bass Station in the mid-90s and own at least eight other Novation products. I'll be spending a couple of rainy days this mid-week integrating this lovely beast of a groovebox with my other kit, including a modular, semi-modulars, and vintage gear.
Danny van Bruggen
Got it for 50% off. Nice synth for that price with lots of sequencing possibilities. A kind of DSI Evolver with a better interface but less features.
David Miller
I bought my Mono-stationed part of a special offer Novation were offering. It was a good deal at the Street price but at the special offer price it’s a fantastic deal. I have other Novation products so expected something good. The build quality on the Monostation is excellent and the features are extensive. For me this will be a journey of discovery into a new musical instrument.
Christian Schmitt
Absolutely beautiful! Great formfactor and a wonderful sound in such a small and handy little box :)
Mike Edwards
Best thing they have made in ages. I use it much for a midi sequencer as a synth
Terry Beach
The Mono Station is a great piece of equipment. It's a great addition to the various synths and drum machines I own, very versatile...
John McMullan
Great sounds and fun to use.
One of the best synths i ever purchased
Jakob Magnusson
Sounds great and easy to work with
Chris Boswell
Either easy to understand considering it can do soo much. Thanks guys to everyone on your team
I love the circuit interface, the synth sounds great and the sequencers make this synth a powerhouse. It’s brilliant and I can’t wait to see what comes out in the future firmware updates.
Thomas Porett
I've been very happy to have ordered the Mono Station and it will become a valuable tool in my studio.
Kurt Dahlke
Amazing - didn´t expect such a "monster"-sound. Fits perfectly in my modular setup (2 CV + gate outputs)
Hubert Klotzeck
Endless exciting, great features and wonderful sound
Quality is very good and sturdy ! Value for money, i would say : not full retail price, wait for a discount.
Marco Emilio Giordano
Analog sound with an easy to use very capable sequencer , for me the perfect choice to improve my instruments arsenal
Excellent sounding device, and the Circuit sequencer is so accessible and easy to use.
Martin O'Sullivan
Simple yet deep, inventive and inspiring; well done novation engineers.
Adrian Bleul
Very nice device, it works great in conjunction with a circuit and like the circuit is very much fun to play with.
Novation Circuit mono Station, What an amazing synth and Novation also has the best update cycle of all the brands of synths i own, adding features that makes you fall in love with your synth again and again.
Very good mono timbral analog synth
Worthy addition!
R Candy
Great form factor for a mono synth. The sequencer is very easy to use, yet reasonably powerful. On the synth side the basic sound is similar to a Bass Station 2
Steffen Pachulski
Gewohnte Novation Qualität. Prädikat: sehr gut
Eduard Rojas
best value for price, really fun and intuitive, and sounds really good, the suboscillator it's so huge, and the sound design capabilities are amazing too, fix in the mix very well. I'm so happy.
At a previous customers price it was a bargain!!!
Bryan Kwee
Fully adaptable paraphonic analog synthesizer and sequencer. Great build quality and customer service. Looking forward to having this piece be the major centerpiece for my midi setup
Novation Circuit Mono Station is AWESOME!!!!!
Excellent workmanship....have the Circuit already...look forward to making use of both instruments in the studio...
A fun desktop synth and great way to come up with new basslines and phrases.
Can't wait to dig in, the sound is impressive
Florent Sanchez
Great analog synth. Great sound. Killer sequencing power.
Excellent sounding analog synth with an extremely powerful sequencer. I would most definitely recommend. It’s going to get a lot of use in the studio.
This is so much more than the sum of its parts. Admittedly I had already been using a Circuit which has similarities in the sequencing controls (though by no means the same), but I managed to get creating weird and wonderful sounds and sequences right away, while - crucially - actually understanding what I was doing. It's a strange combination of elements in one device, and yes it even looks like a Circuit + Bass Station II cut-and-shut(!) but rest assured this thing is powerful, fluid and dangerously addictive.
James Payne
Such an awesome synth for its size, great for gigs and sound design.
Peter P.
The possibilities in this box are endless. Sounds great and I am also very curious to use it as an effect box. The only thing I am missing a little bit is an onboard delay. Although it is easy to fix with a pedal and/or a LFO/modsequencer trick ;-)
Marco Mancini
Good analog sound with modern interface.
Marco Barberis
It's a great product and it works really well. Now I want to connect it to his little brother Circuit and do a lot of stuff together! Thank's Novation for all your products, you are awesome!
Sebastian Dołowiec
Good, solid, awesome and suberb
carette antonin
Really good synth with so much possibilities. And bravo for the CV connections!
Neil Burdon
Easy to use, sounds great. Only really scratched the surface of everything it can do. Links up with the circuit for extra useability.
Serge Corteyn
I love it. It sounds and plays wonderful
Fabrice Monpoux
So much potential....Paraphonic Analogue Synth with great sequenceur Infinite possibilities of creating sounds and sequence The perfect twin for my Circuit Love it Fabrice
This little box is just brilliant, it's well built and the sound is exactly what I expected. I'm loving it.
Jason Crouch
Simplicity in all cases and just love the filter driven sound simply passing the out put back in through the machine. Blindingly fast workflow, raw sound

Circuit Mono Station is a next-generation sequenced monosynth that originates from the Bass Station II, with three sequencer tracks that benefit from the 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads found on Circuit. The synth has two oscillators, three distortion modes, plus one multi-mode filter that can be 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 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. Passing an audio signal through the audio input opens up a world of analogue filtration and distortion. Using the audio input with the mod sequencer, a source can be modulated, evolved and processed in entirely new ways. Via USB, Circuit Mono Station can be plugged into Mac or PC, where unlimited patches can be managed using Components.

  • 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
  • Three sequencer tracks (two oscillator sequencers, one modulation sequencer)
  • 32 velocity-sensitive RGB pads
  • 16 scale types
  • Changeable sync rates
  • CV/Gate, CV mod plus MIDI In, Out and Thru for connecting and controlling separate hardware
  • Modulate, evolve and process sources through the audio input
  • Backup patches and sessions with Components
