Certainly a good time to be into analog synths.

Wasp Deluxe clone surely? I wonder how they'll approach the digital oscillators. If additional shapes and potentially wavetables are added this could be quite a fun one.

It doesn't really make sense for this to be in the Eurorack-able form factor, since it doesn't seem to have any CV inputs or outputs, just oscillator outputs and filter input...

Agreed...man a real missed opportunity by Behringer to CV in/out the hell out of a Wasp. I think I'd rather just try to find a nice Wasp filter clone with these connections available.

Nice that you can route the two osc out to a ring mod then back into the mix. Lack of filter cv input is a bit odd though :hmm:

this is is a more exciting one, and they even state: " made its predecessor infamous in esoteric synth circles. "
So for that crowd, I would think, they'd add more CV/audio in/outs, Not less, than their other clones
Dumb.

...and if they had a clue, they'd add a second "wasp" filter. Then, this might be special!

Daisy chaining capability coupled with the price sounds interesting. Polyphonic Wasp anyone?

Disappointing lack of cv control mixed with lack of a keyboard makes this a head scratcher.

Agreed with most of the comments here. Was immediately super excited when I saw the announcement but then cooled off rapidly...

Wasp Deluxe with no keyboard?
Eurorack unit with 3 patch points?
Digital oscs with no upgrades/tweaks? (how about 4 voice paraphony?)

First Behringer clone I'm not quite hyped about... :hmm:

I look forward to buying one for next to nothing used and circuit bending the hell out of it. Lots of room on that panel.

I mean, isn't this sort of a good thing? If you want a wasp filter get the doepfer, if you want an advanced dual wasp filter, go to random source, if you want a cheap wasp to process audio and use with your midi keyboard, get the behringer, if you want a nice clone either build a jasper or spend 800 bucks on one someone's already built. It's actually kind of nice that it doesn't disrupt the ecosystem and adds an alternative. I agree it would be cooler with tons of CV control or a weird touch keyboard, but it's cheap and if you already have a midi equipped studio, it's an easy way to add a wasp to your sound. Not a slam dunk like the model d or neutron, but I'll definitely get one.

I suppose you’re right , I was looking forward to a keyboard version though.

We know that it’ll be quite well made (based on Model D, K2, etc). The price is like a fifth of what a original Wasp would cost you, or even less. Some might have hoped for more features but however you view it, it’s a bargain.

Just realized that this plus a microfreak would would only set you back ~ 600, less if used and would offer a lot of interesting hybrid sounds.
