About Dave Smith Instruments

Dave Smith Instruments

Dave Smith founded Sequential Circuits, the premier manufacturer of professional music synthesisers, in the mid-70s. In 1977, he designed the Prophet-5, the world's first microprocessor-based musical instrument.

The Dave Smith Prophet-5 was a revolutionary product and was the world's first polyphonic and programmable synth, and set the standard for all synth designs that have followed. The Prophet instruments played a major part in the recordings of all popular music styles, and are still prized by musicians today.

Dave Smith is also generally known as the driving force behind the generation of the MIDI specification in 1981—in fact, he coined the acronym. In 1987 he was named a Fellow of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) for his continuing work in the area of music synthesis. After Sequential, Dave Smith was President of DSD, Inc, an R&D division of Yamaha, where he worked on physical modelling synthesis and software synthesizer concepts. He then started the Korg R&D group in California, which went on to produce the professional musician favourite Wavestation products and other technology.

Dave Smith then took over as President at Seer Systems and developed the world's first software based synthesiser running on a PC. This synth, commissioned by Intel, was demonstrated by Andy Grove in a Comdex keynote speech in 1994. Now Dave Smith is designing hardware instruments again with the Evolver, Poly Evolver, and Prophet '08 synths.
