This article will go over how to save sessions to your Circuit Mono Station and how to save them to Novation Components.
Circuit Mono Station has save disabled out of the box. To enable saving off sessions hold SHIFT + SAVE whilst turning the unit on. You will then see the save button lit blue.
Turning save off can be useful when performing to prevent accidental changes to your sessions.
Saving a Session on Circuit Mono Station
Create a Pattern/Session on your Circuit Mono Station
When you are ready to save press the "Session" button
The white illuminated button will be the pad the session is saved to. (the dark blue buttons are already saved sessions and the light blue buttons are empty sessions)
Select the "Save" button
and then select the pad you want to save it to (if you select a dark pad it will save over an already saved session)
The session will now be saved to that pad
Saving Sessions from Circuit Mono Station to Novation Components
Open Novation Components (standalone or Components.Novationmusic.com)
For the Components website you will need to use Google Chrome as a browser
Make sure we are connected with a USB cable from the Circuit Mono Station to the computer. Once connected, click on the 'Go to Components' link.
Now choose the Circuit Mono Station from the product list.
If you choose to not sign in with Google or Facebook you can use the standalone version of the software and save to your computer but not to the cloud.
Make sure Circuit Mono Station is getting connected to Components. The keyboard icon on the top right will be Red if the device is not connected, Yellow if it is connected but needs to be set to bootloader mode, or Green if it is connected.
If you click on the icon while it is yellow, it will ask you if you want to set it to bootloader mode so it can connect to Components.
Circuit Mono Station will now be in Boot loader.
Now Select "Get from Mono Station"
All the sessions and patches will be sent into Circuit Components. We can now save the sessions to the computer or to the cloud. (As you can see "User25" is our saved session")
Select "Save" then "Save as". You will be asked to name the Pack once you've hit "Save as". Hit "Done" and the pack will be saved to the cloud.
If you would like you can Save the User Pack to the computer. Please click on the "Save" button like before, but now you will click on "Download" instead of "Save As"
It will then ask you if you want to download the sessions or the whole pack (samples and patches)
Once you have chosen the sessions or the pack, it will ask you to name it.
This will save a Sysex file to the computer and you can open any saved User Packs by clicking on the browser button on the top right of the components window:
