EMS VCS-3's keyboard, the DK-1, has velocity sensitivity too and that
was in 1969. was the synthi100 released before VCS-3 mk1?
So, maybe the VCS-3 is the first synth with velocity sensitive
keyboard...?

well i know the Delaware proper has a divide-down organ element to  
its keyboard controller, so i'm going to _guess_ a Vox Continental,  
but i'll bet it's something more random.

does anyone know if the Synthi 100 is the first velocity-sensitive  
synthesizer?
