Before your mind goes wild conceiving the ultimate Novation x Sequential product mashup, it's safe to say that Sequential and Novation will continue to operate independently, as separate entities under the Focusrite Group umbrella. Dave Smith will remain at the helm of Sequential, leading engineering, product development and mentorship of Sequential's new breed of designers.
