I attended the GRAMMY Nominee Celebration sponsored by the San Francisco Chapter of the Recording Academy last night with my good friend, keyboardist Steven Halpern who is nominated in the New Age category. Dave Smith was there and was honored for being the recipient of the 2013 Technical GRAMMY Award. Really cool to see him be recognized after all the years of groundbreaking work he's done being a primary developer of MIDI (30 years ago this year!) as well as the Prophet 5 and the many innovative electronic instruments since then. I got to chat with him briefly and am looking forward to a new product announcement that will be revealed at the NAMM Show coming up soon. Very cool!
No announcement yet.
