A musical instrument manufacturing company from the USA.

Sequential Circuits started out in 1978 as a self-funded business operating in Dave Smith's garage in San Jose, California. The other initial members were former Moog employee John Bowen and businesswoman Barb Fairhurst.
The following winter the team introduced their Prophet-5 model, which became hugely popular and made SC a major name in the synthesizer business.
Eventually Sequential Circuits (shortening its name to Sequential) became the largest American synth manufacturer. But after a long streak of bad luck, the company was sold to Yamaha in 1987 for just over half a million dollars. After a while Yamaha decided to boot the Sequential design team, which was then recruited by Korg (which was owned by Yamaha) and went on to produce the Wavestation.
