Stephen grew up playing the synthesizer keyboard in a string of rock bands. Being a cello player as well, he was often disappointed with the lack of dynamic control of the keyboard compared to his cello. The volume sliders and mod wheels on the keyboard simply did not compare to the natural, organic control he had with the cello.
