Sequential

Originally founded in 1974 by synthesizer pioneer Dave Smith, Sequential also known as Sequential Circuits or SCI are one of the leading manufacturers of synthesizers and other electronic musical instruments, perhaps best known for their Prophet range of synthesizers.

Originally founded in 1974 by synthesizer pioneer Dave Smith, Sequential also known as Sequential Circuits or SCI are one of the leading manufacturers of synthesizers and other electronic musical instruments, perhaps best known for their Prophet range of synthesizers.


The Sequential brand has quite an active history: in 1978 Sequential Circuits had a HUGE success with the Prophet 5, which was co-developed with John Bowen and Dave Rossum. The Prophet 5 was used extensively in pop music throughout the 1980’s and on, it was the first programmable polyphonic synthesizer and was a landmark in synthesizer technology.


Sequential, along with Roland, Oberheim, Kawai, Korg, Yamaha standardized the way synthesizers communicate, using Roland DIN SYNC as a platform, Dave Smith helped pioneer the Music Instrument Digital Interface…which we now all refer to as MIDI. The Prophet 600 from 1982 was the first MIDI equipped synthesizer.


Fast forward to 1987 and Sequential were bought out by Yamaha. The core of Sequential staff, including Dave Smith continued to develop technologies for Yamaha, but later went on to consult for Korg, with Dave’s input eventually leading to the very notable Wavestation, which itself was based on the SCI F8.


In 2002 Dave Smith founded he’s own company to better focus on he’s own technologies and endeavours. The company was founded as Dave Smith Instruments who have released iconic instruments such as the Mopho, Prophet’08, Prophet 12, Pro One and Tempest. Dave has even collaborated with longtime friend and fellow synth legend Tom Oberheim on the OB-6.


DSI are widely regarded as the company who kick-started the boom of the modern synthesizer market, with the release of the Mopho, they redefined the price at which an analogue synthesizer could be sold for. The Mopho, whilst it might not be the most revered Dave Smith design, it’s certainly one of the most important.


With the resurgence of interest from users for real analogue synths and affordable analogue becoming more possible through modern manufacturing processes the synth market is booming. And it’s all thanks to a superb little yellow, analogue box.


In 2018, Dave Smith has renamed their company Sequential. Thus regaining their original name and reinstating one of the icons of the synthesizer market back to their rightful glory.
