Kim Ryrie was just a few years out of high school when he called his friend Peter Vogel to discuss a new idea. Peter and Kim worked on several electronic related projects together in school and during the phone call Kim explained an idea he had for developing a computer based musical instrument that could create analog sounds in a digital format. The two soon established the Fairlight company and by 1975 offered the first in a series of products based on their Computer Musical Instrument (CMI) technology. Their efforts forever changed the way musicians created and reproduced unique sounds.
