Your legacy lives on. 10 years after your passing, so-called "Curtis Chips" are held in almost reverence amongst the synth / gearhead community. It's a tribute to his design that the CEM chips almost single-handedly spawned an industry; low-cost polyphonic synthesizers. And these chips still live on. I have a handful here in my stash of vintage synth repair parts.

I just read that my good friend Doug Curtis, programmed the synthesizer chips used by Van Halen, for the song JUMP. At my mountain home at Serene Lake, I used to wake my boys up on powder days, by playing JUMP at full volume on my 1957 Seeburg 200 Jukebox. The jukebox was in the basement at 7000 ft, and Doug Curtis had a cabin by the lake about ¼ mile away…3 degrees of separation…Doug was a sweet guy with a wonderful family…a pleasure to know him. I know he is skiing in deep powder in heaven… JUMP!

I'd like to thank Duoglas for the countless hours of fun I had designing with his chips. He found a way to make other people's job not only better, but more enjoyable.
Vaya con Dios, Douglas.
