Synth brand Sequential joins the Focusrite Group


Welcome to the extended family, Sequential! 

Our parent company, Focusrite plc, has acquired legendary synth brand Sequential, bringing the company founded and led by electronic instrument pioneer Dave Smith into the extended Ampify family. And we couldn’t be more excited.

Sequential’s synths have made a huge impact in music for decades, and continue to inspire music makers all over the world. Instruments such as the classic Prophet® 5 — the world’s first fully programmable polysynth, designed by Dave Smith and launched in 1977 — and the futuristic Pro 3® hybrid monosynth, which combines analogue and digital in a powerful paraphonic instrument, show Sequential’s dedication to the craft of synthesizer design.

The acquisition brings Sequential into a group of some of the best and brightest companies in the musical instruments and pro audio: Novation, Focusrite, Focusrite Pro, ADAM Audio, Martin Audio and Optimal Audio. And, while Sequential will continue a business-as-usual approach as a separate entity, we’re really looking forward to growing together to inspire generations of music makers to come!
