Dang, one of the creators of Midi. Aside from his synths, how's that for a legacy?

Dang, he always seemed so vital in interviews. What a shame! Certainly one of the absolutely most influential people in music technology history.

OMG.

I'm shocked. This isn't true is it?

Damn. It's on Sequential's site. I'm devastated.

Right before the OB-X8 is released too.

Rest in peace Dave. I'm going to cry and then play something on my Sequential synths.

In complete shock! Rest In Peace, Mr. Smith. You have changed the musical lives of arguably more than any other pioneer, with not only adding presets to synths, but by masterminding MIDI. Your accomplishments will never be forgotten, nor will you. Thank you.
My condolences to Dave’s family, and all employees of Sequential. What a crappy day. :0(
