Not quite my tempo.

Collectibles in games are not collected just for the bragging rights. Some of them will help you unlock new content in-game, maybe a couple of cosmetics, maybe a new level (thinking about the notes in Banjo Kazooie). Most of the time, however, these collectibles are used to upgrade your character up to the top tier. This is the case of the Broken Armstrong Circuits, which allows you to craft chips that will help you become more powerful while boosting your stats. Keep the rhythm now, my friend, because here are all the Broken Armstrong Circuit Locations in Hi-Fi Rush.

Broken Armstrong Circuit Locations – Track 1

1*After Smidge teaches you about dodging, go to the left up the platform. Look up and break the shield that blocks the grapple point. You will find the HR Investigator. He will reward you with the circuit.
2*After Smidge talks about enemy rhythm sync, jumpup to the platform behind. You will see a red container on a level below. Go there and move to the left to find a door to the SPECTRA Challenge Room. If you complete it, your reward will be a circuit.
3*Use Macaron to destroy a locked gate, located in the zone after the waste disposal factory. Use Korsica to unlock the platform timed-challenge. You will find the circuit inside a treasure chest, on top of the challenge.
4*On the top level on the left, right in the QA Check room. Use Korsica to get rid of the fire blocking the door. Go up and to the left of the platform you will find the circuit.
