Keyboard Magazine Interview with Dave Smith

"When it comes to how keyboard players make music, Dave Smith may be the most influential person alive. His early experiments building sequencers led to his first company, Sequential Circuits, releasing the first programmable polyphonic slab synth, the Prophet-5. His work on wavetable and vector synthesis in the Prophet-VS was reborn in the enduring Korg Wavestation. His Seer Systems Reality is widely acknowledged as the first commercially available 'professional' soft synth. And though he tells the story more modestly, it’s acceptable shorthand to say that he invented MIDI."
