multi-track hardware sequencer, with MIDI, analogue and USB connectivity.
Cirklon is a multi-track hardware sequencer, designed to be at the heart of your hardware MIDI, analogue or hybrid studio setup.
Continuing from where our P3 Sequencer left off, it retains the P3's unique step-sequencer capabilites, and adds an event-list pattern type ideal for polyphonic synth and drum parts, with event-list and drum grid editing.
The user-interface is based around a 240x64 pixel graphic LED display, 19 rotary encoders with push-switches, 2 assignable knobs, 35 high-quality Cherry keys with integrated LEDs, and a further 35 tri-colour status LEDs.
Cirklon has up to 64 tracks, user-configurable as 1 to 4 banks of 16.
There are 5 independent MIDI INs and OUTs to connect a large number of controllers and synths/sound modules while keeping MIDI latency to a minimum.
There is USB MIDI connectivity for DAW synchronisation, soft-synth control or MIDI pass-thru from a PC, and a DIN Sync output which can also be configured to connect an upcoming multi-channel analogue percussion trigger interface.
The optional CVIO analogue bus provides 16 hi-res CV outputs, and 8 configurable gate out/CV ins on a 25 pin connector, giving direct control of analogue synths with optimum timing response and no further load on the MIDI ports.
The 32-bit, 72MHz ARM Cortex CPU runs a proprietary sequencer engine to ensure optimum timing accuracy.
All MIDI ports are provided by hardware serial ports in the CPU core itself.
Pattern storage is comprised of 2MB battery-backed internal RAM, with internal flash and an SD/MMC card socket for data backup.
The basic unit is 999 ukp
The CVIO option, which adds 16 CV and 8 gate outputs on a 25-pin connector, is 176 ukp
A rack-mount or desktop break-out box (BOB) connects to the CVIO output to provide quarter-inch
sockets for all CV and gate pins.
The rack-mount BOB is 180ukp, the desktop BOB is 150ukp

This tutorial video should give you an idea how Cirklon operates. A link to part 2 should appear at the end:
Cirklon can easily be switched between desktop and rackmount configuration, as shown in this video:
