video upload by Ampersand Ampersand

Wear & Tear Eurorack Synthesizer Effect Overview

"Ampersand Ampersand is excited to announce the launch of Wear & Tear, our inaugural Eurorack module that masterfully recreates the characterful imperfections of vintage tape machines.

Dive into the heart of sonic nostalgia with your own personal time machine to the golden age of lo-fi soundscapes. Drawing inspiration from the classic charm of cassette recorders, Wear & Tear is your key to unlocking a treasure chest of degraded magic. Designed for modern musicians who crave that elusive lo-fi sound, Wear & Tear offers a versatile range of effects from subtle saturation to complete sonic transformation. Experience everything from the gentle flutter of tape warble to the gritty charm of sounds that seem rescued from a forgotten attic tape collection. Wear & Tear brings the quintessential lo-fi aesthetic right at your fingertips, blending the raw beauty of vintage imperfections with the precision of modern control. As you weave dense ambient textures, embark on a journey through sound where the only limit is your imagination, and discover the boundless possibilities of lo-fi weirdness and beyond.

Key Features Include:

Tape Saturation: From just a touch of warmth to hard clipping, the tape saturation algorithm delivers a spectrum of overdriven options
Wow & Flutter: Adds a dynamic layer of movement to your sound, which can be tempo synced for musical cohesion.
Stereo Low Pass & High Pass filters: Tame your saturation, or push it to the limit with additional resonance.
Noise generator: A pure white noise generator that can crackle and pop, an added envelope follower allows you to push the noise volume or duck it with incoming audio.
Crinkles: Sporadic dropouts add to the authenticity of cassette emulation
Age: A shifting non-resonant filter transforming incoming audio to the sounds of yesteryear.
Dust: A macro control to add chaos to all other settings.
One-Knob Compression: Simplifies the often complex process of compression into a single user-friendly knob, adjusting threshold and ratio together for immediate sonic impact.
Dual-Function Knobs: Each knob supports a primary and an alternate setting, enabling complex configurations and interactions between effects.

First Pics and Details on Behringer's EDP WASP Deluxe Desktop Synth Priced at 298.99

This one was spotted and sent in via Bill of Ampersand Posture.


"A Stinging Cult Classic Reborn

A faithful reproduction of the cult classic digital-analog hybrid synth, the Behringer Wasp monophonic synth has the bone-rattling lows and searing highs that made its predecessor infamous in esoteric synth circles. True to its name, the Wasp excels at droney, buzzy synth sounds, emanating from its two digital oscillators, distinctive analog VCF with highpass, lowpass, notch, and bandpass modes, noise generator, and a hive full of modulation capabilities. The Wasp can generate three variable oscillator shapes —pulse, ramp, and enhanced mode, with pulse width modulation on OSC1. OSC2 swaps out pulse width control for pitch, so you can dial up warbly, detuned chorus effects, or tune the oscillator to intervals for pseudo-polyphony. A unique LFO with six selectable waveforms and pitch and frequency mod controls and the Wasp's two analog envelope generators open up vast signal manipulation possibilities. Synthesists at Sweetwater are psyched to add this rarified legend to their synth arsenals. Gnarly, aggressive, and completely idiosyncratic, Behringer's Wasp is all the buzz!

Eurorack and Poly Chain Compatible
The Behringer Wasp can be used as a desktop module or integrated into a Eurorack system, with an 80HP footprint, and integrated it into your MIDI setup via 5-pin DIN or USB-MIDI. Featuring Behringer's Poly Chain capability, the Wasp can be combined with multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony. It also includes an external in, so you can shape and mangle guitars, vocals, drum machines, and more with the Wasp's inimitable filters and modulators.

Specs below.

Rare Ampersand Analog Quad LFO for Modular Synthesizer Systems

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated. via this auction
"Up for auction is a rare Ampersand Quad discrete LFO module.

4 LFOs with separate 1/4" outputs for square wave and switchable sine/triangle wave.
A master rate and amplitude control affects all 4 LFOs, and LFO 4 can be switched to be independent of the master controls. External control inputs for frequency and amplitude, with attenuation control.

I have used this unit with my ARP 2600 and all 4 LFOs work fine, and can go well into the audio range...

Dimensions: 12" w 8 1/4"d x 3 1/2""
