Behringer Wasp Vintage Patches: Bass, Lead, Pluck Sound Demo

video upload by Anton Anru

"Behringer Wasp Deluxe «Analog Classics» is a collection of 50 presets: 16 Leads, 16 Basses, 18 Plucks.
It includes famous sounds that are found in many electronic tracks, from vintage to modern, musical solo timbres; retro basses that will fit into any track or performance. The patches will add uniqueness to your music, featuring the characteristic sound introduced by the Behringer Wasp Deluxe.

Plucks are excellent for use with arpeggiators or sequencers. In most examples of this category, I utilize an arpeggiator. Wasp Deluxe doesn’t have a built in arp/seq, but you may integrate your preferred arpeggiators or sequencers from your DAW or MIDI controller.

📚 Get the soundset:

The presets are suitable for a variety of genres, including: ambient, electronica, IDM, deep, techno, house, progressive, trance, lounge, downtempo, funk, jazz, pop, chill out, new age, cinematic, breaks, jungle, drum and bass, dub and others.

The soundset is presented in the form of PDF-Document. Each page contains notes that explain how the patch works, what parameters are worth tweaking during playback, and how to develop the timbre during a performance.

There are audio examples of all patches inside the folder with the soundset."

"Very hard to come by these days. Not getting easier. Only one listed in the USA that I’m aware of. Works like a charm still but for a slightly muffled speaker but let’s face it nobody is using that and instead going line out to an interface and recoding/adding FX. Simply a stunningly awesome vintage analog sound that a repro can‘t come close to nailing."

Superbooth 2023: PWM - Mantis

video upload by sonicstate

"Paul from PWM gave a us preview of Mantis, which is the last synth designed by Chris Huggett [EDP Wasp creator] before he passed away. The Mantis is described as a Wasp Mark II with an Oscar- inspired dual filter, and two analog signal paths that make it duophonic. The oscillators are numerically calculated on power-up using then move into the analog domain, where everything is digitally controlled.

The Mantis mixer allows users to balance between oscillator one and two, add noise, and ring mod. It has a deep, but simple to use modulation section, two envelopes with a unique sustain fall feature and 100 factory patches and 100 user patches. The instrument also includes a few digital effects at the end of the signal path that help sweeten the sounds and make it more of an all-around performance instrument.

While the instrument is still in development, PWM showcased the circuit boards that are provide a preview of the final sound of the Mantis.

PWM Mantis Available: Late Summer 2023

Price 1,599 Euro. 1,349 GBP"

PWM Mantis // released today

video upload by Starsky Carr

"A brand new synth from PWM - a new company with lots of history. Paul has worked extensively in the industry. Most interesting here are his connections from his time at Novation as the BassStaion 2 product lead. You may know that the inventor of the classic WASP and OSCAR, Chris Huggett, was involved there, and before his unfortunately untimely death he was working with Paul on this new synth. Paul has brought it to life with his families blessing.

A great story, and a great little synth. Still has a couple of pre production hoops to jump through but will be available soon."

Swarm of Wasps - Minute ish Jam - NO TALKING NO EFFECTS 7 Layers of the Behringer Wasp

video upload by HansiLa

"Another minute (ish) jam. This one consists of the Behringer Wasp mono synthesizer layered 7 times (8 if you count the duplication and panning of one of the tracks). I had some fun tweaking the high pass filters on a couple patches to create a snare and high hat.

Every sound on this jam is from the Behringer Wasp.

As always there are no effects and the only processing is panning so you can really get a feel how the Wasp sounds with other instruments... in this case, itself.

Enjoy and thanks!"

EDP Wasp Analogue Synthesizer + Noise Militia FX Wasp Filter

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.

via this auction

This appears to be the first post to feature Noise Militia FX.

"Made in UK between 1978-1981, here we have an ORIGINAL Wasp synthesizer in great condition. Only 3,000 ever made. EDP (Electronic Dream Plant) were creators of some great products at the time; star item being the OSCar synth. Chris Hugget went on to become involved with Novation, who are still around today, with British synths that hold their own with any other in the world eg Summit (KKGB have one in stock).

SOUNDS LIKE:- very capable synthesizer delivers a vast array of sounds. Its "additive synthesis", really...meaning you have to understand what is happening re the audio path. Having TWO oscillators is a huge bonus, with noise/sample & hold/glide all there for free.. It can sound pleasantly sweet (steady now...dont let music get in the way..), or devilishly wicked/weird and/or funky bass lines/screaming solo lines, and everything in-between. NO "snowflake/lazy boy" presets for you to get you started...oh, no...this is raw analogue at its smouldering best....

FREE gift >> WASP FILTER (Noise Militia FX) is included in the price. This device can be used with any synth, for wazzing delights and stuff (worth £199)."

Behringer Wasp Deluxe - Just The Jams

video upload by Scott Ampleford

"A few months ago I reviewed Behringer's lovely recreation of the classic Wasp synthesiser. As with all my reviews, I made a bunch of music with the synth to show it off in context.
These pieces of music, hopefully demonstrate the Wasp's characterful sound and versatility by genre hopping from Drum & Bass to Euro - Pop and beyond."

"Gnarly, punchy and rude. But if you treat it nicely, the Wasp can really mellow out and be a good all-rounder."
