SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS known or written as SCI or Dave Smith
sequential circuits synth manufacturer logo - Hersteller Logo

Dave Smith was founder of SCI, he runs Dave Smith Instruments today and continued what he started in the late 70ies building the first synth based on SSM chips (later Curtis) and it was polyphonic. Yamaha aquired the rights for SCI and Prophet later, so Dave won't name his synths prophet in the future..

Dave Smith war der Gründer und Macher hinter SCI, heute arbeitet er weiter unter dem Namen Dave Smith Instruments und führt fort, was er mit SCI begann. SCI startete ende der 70 mit dem Prophet 5. Basis der Idee war einen polyphonen Synthesizer auf Basis der damals neuen SSM (und später Wechsel zu Curtis) Chips zu bauen. Die Namen SCI und Prophet gehören heute Yamaha.
