This article will go over how to save sessions to your Circuit and how to save them to Novation Components.
Circuit 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.
