Digital Music Pioneer Don Lewis Passes Away at 81 – EDM.com



Don Lewis, one in all digital music’s most sensible minds, has handed away on the age of 81.

Lewis invented the “Reside Digital Orchestra” (LEO), a ’70s period invention that predates the creation of MIDI and was forward-thinking for its time. He was additionally instrumental in creating synth “voices” for among the most impactful analog devices of a creative era, and has consulted for the world’s high synth manufacturers.

Lewis was a key developer on Roland’s seminal TR-808 drum machine, an invention that modified the trajectory of up to date music.
