Dave Quick

Dave Quick is a composer, LinnStrument player, recording engineer, and Ableton Push player.

He has programmed FretWorx, an encyclopedia of chords, scales, and arpeggios for guitar and other stringed instruments available on iOS, Android, and Windows 10.

He has programmed DelayWorx, an app that lets you easily translate between BPM, a time signature, and a loop time and the number of measures, available on Android.

He played guitar, bass, keyboards, and programmed drums on the songs at davequick.bandcamp.com. Unfortunately, he suffered a brain aneurysm in 2009 that left him missing his right hand. He currently plays the LinnStrument, because you can play it one-handed.
