Novation has released an update to its Circuit Groovebox workstation with three sampling advancements, a session color feature for organizational purposes, and additional bug fixes.

The first of the new sampling features is an update to the sample import tool, which now allows for a more intuitive grouping of similar sounds on individual pads. The second permits users to play and preview samples without having to program them into patterns. The final, a sample flip function, gives users the ability to create multi-sample drum lines on each of Circuit’s drum tracks.

Additionally, through the Circuit Librarian, individual LEDs can be reprogrammed to different colors for better organization of individual sounds, songs, and sessions. Miscellaneous bug fixes include improvements to session switching and playback of long samples.
