Dave Starkey is the engineer who served on the teams that brought us such innovative instruments as the Lowrey MX1 in 1979.  For that special project, which included sixty circuit boards, he worked with the designer and engineer, Jack Cookerley.  Dave has worked on several amazing teams over the years including with the late Philip Dodd with ARP and the Gulbransen 380 Organ with Lloyd Meyers. The pursuit of the KS20 strip led to his own company, MIDI9, which was established in 2003.
