Behringer Wasp Deluxe: Vintage Sting Meets Modular Musicality
Back in the late 1970s, a peculiar synth debuted to quite the buzz, thanks to novel features like a flat, touch-sensitive playing surface in lieu of physical keys and a pre-MIDI control system for linking with select instruments. Its distinctive sonic character is owed to an unorthodox mix of digital oscillators and analog circuitry, earning a spot among the repertoires of 808 State, Duran Duran’s Nick Rhodes, and more. Though it failed to get too far from the hive, it became an iconic synth all the same — a “sleeper synth,” some might say. Behringer saw the latent potential in this lovely musical insect and chose to give it new wings to take flight with their support. Enter the Wasp Deluxe. Its lauded sound returns in full form, outfitted with modern appointments that don’t sacrifice its vaunted character and with the versatility of a desktop module to serve up stinging synth sonics more flexibly than ever before. Sweetwater’s synth scholar, Daniel Fisher, takes the Behringer Wasp Deluxe for a test flight to see what all the buzz is about. Check it out!
