It might only be a slightly improved TB303 sound generation module, but it is a 16 step 250 pattern sequencer with 7 songs (tracks?), which I assume will be transmitted over MIDI, for only £129?

I'll have a couple!

Also worth remembering that the 303 wasn't just about acid squidgy noises. Heaven 17's "Let Me Go" bassline is all early TB303 and at Synthfest the other year, Martyn Ware was incredibly proud of that as he was able to do tricks like slurs as well as accents due to the cleverness of the sequencer. He reckoned that it was a gem that was heavily misunderstood.

Not sure I want one though.

Yes, it's a Wasp (or that's what everyone is assuming...)

What the world needs now is a clone of the Wasp. Sheesh! :crazy: :lol:

I'm guessing we're seeing now are the benefits of technology re-use.

Being in the MI retail industry when the Wasp was released you echoed my thoughts.

Why ? Do you not think the sound deserves classic synth status or did you not like the cheap "margarine tub" case & unreliable top soldering ?

Or perhaps you were thinking there are enough Wasp clones alreeady ?

I'm certainly looking forward to a clone of the Wasp sound generating circuitry. I won't miss the "keyboard" or the casing though!

You just need to find a big enough jam jar to nail that typical 80's synth sound. :D

For some reason I'd strayed to the upstairs keyboards/drum section of Andertons (back when they were in Haydon Place), and the bright yellow Wasp had just arrived in shop. So the assistant kindly demoed it with his version of Deep Purple's 'Burn'. Sounded good, looked pretty awful.

Back in the day it probably wasnt a difficult choice, as it was probably based on cost..
EDP Wasp £250 ???
Moog Model D £ ???

Now thanks to Behringer you could probably have both.

I hope they include some kind of sequencer in the design, an integrated Spider perhaps.
