We are but momentary blips, bleeps and bloops in space and time. Some strike harder with more velocity and linger much longer with aftertouch full of character.

When the Tempest was in its significantly long beta firmware development I had the opportunity to contribute my ideas. I had a lot to say and at times felt unheard. I did however make a case for a very specific feature. I was looking for momentary footswitch behavior for control over the Roll and Reverse functions. To my delight, it was added not long after I asked for the idea to be considered. I'm sure Chris and Carson heard me and discussed the idea, and I'd like to think (hope) that Dave Smith himself was a part of the conversation. It is a feature I use almost every time I perform with the Tempest. In some ways I feel like a part of me is inside the soul of this machine. Though I never new Dave Smith personally, I will always think of him and his legacy, every single time I use this instrument.
