    Spring Mashup Competition

    Dave Smith Instruments ends development of its Tempest drum machine 

    Released in 2011, Dave Smith and Roger Linn’s Tempest is one of the most ambitious and feature-packed drum machines on the market, but it’s just been announced that it’s reached the end of its development cycle.

    Writing on the DSI forum, Dave Smith said: “When the Tempest was first conceived, we never imagined the many ways you would ultimately put it to use. As such, over time, we've done our best to add as many features as we deemed implementable within the Tempest's technical framework. We've listened to your requests and have
