Interesting albeit bit strange groovebox
dd_oak, 27.03.2018
I use the machine as three timbral module in my live electronics setup. Its not the typical use but it can work this way too (with the sequencer as added bonus).
Pros: small, lightweight, enough controllers, can do two timbres of chords or other polyphonic noises and 4 drum voices (samples). Good (preset) FX. With the supplied PC editor and cloud midi editor you can create your own sounds, assign controllers, change samples, backup.
Cons: the pc editing and backing up has some really awkward idiosyncracies (like by default you don't see the actual content but the default one and thus messing up is very easy). The storage system in the machine is confusing. When slaved to other sequencers and played with fingers it sometimes randomly records notes even with no recording enabled.
Sound: its the typical Novation VA sound, good for pads, crossmodulated blips and so on. Noise is much harsher sounding than on Blofeld for example. There is no way how to create LFO-panned sounds though which is a shame.
Overally, its suits my current needs and I no of other alternative that could fit the role (in my no computer setup). Od course Blofeld is multitimral but FX is worse and the voice switching is cumbersome, less knobs, no sequencer. Elektrons are bigger, expensive and weird in their own regard. Modulars are funnily expensive. So price - features - size wise its good value.

This is a musical ideas starter for me. It is great that I can use it as a standalone instrument first, without connecting it even to power source cable, since it works with batteries also. You can easily create the melody or rhythm playing in your head and develop the basic musical ideas very fast.
It sounds great. But it is also very easy to change or modify the synth or drum patches via the Novation Components website. Not to mention the Novation Circuit can be used for sequencing other hardware synthesizers, which for example I am doing with the Korg Minilogue.
It can be great live performance tool.
I am still not sure if it can be used for creating a full length track, because of some limitations regarding number of patterns that can be chained together, or that it is only a 4-Part drum machine, but it can be surly done by combining it with other synths or a software like Ableton Live, Cubase or others and recording its audio output or MIDI data.

Nice value for the money
JimmyNassa, 27.01.2018
It is a nice groovebox, very intuitive and was a nice work flow!
Its optimal to get ideas or to work with other gear.
At beggining seems a bit confusing, but after a few hours gets really simple, you can load your own small samples into it.
The only cons are: you need to get used into it to know what every knob does and to find the best sinth modules for your.

this toy sounds good!
30.01.2017
1) value for money
2) very interesting sounds with the chance to load full libraries and/or single samples
3) the editing software really goes into deep editing
4) it performs amazingly when connected to a master keyboard (possibly with 2 zones on channels 1 and 2)
5) very good section of effects
