Novation claims that their Circuit Mono Station is a scheming, manipulative little beast of a machine.  They gave us 3 reasons why:

The Circuit Mono Station has a deafening roar to be tamed. It’s infectious to use, quick to engage with and capable of some unpredictable and rather dangerous results.

You wish your monosynth was this dirty

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.

Impressive CV with lots of sequencing experience

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.

So filthy it'll hook-up with anything

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.
