Dave Smith, father of MIDI

Interesting video interview with Dave Smith, who is credited as the father of MIDI. He created some of the best keyboards ever (Prophet 5 among them!). I own a Prophet 600, which was the first synthesizer to ship with MIDI on board. This clip was from the old Tech TV show “Screen Savers” with Leo Laporte. Great show for us nerds!
Special guest also on the show is Steve Wozniak, the co-creator of Apple! Enjoy!
