Wasp Analog Synthesizer Demo
The Wasp synthesizer is one classic synth that often gets forgotten about in the shadow of more popular synths. However, the monophonic synth is powerful and many continue to enjoy its sound.
From the video’s description:
“My Wasp sold for a disappointing $687 dollars. Congratulations to the lucky winner of the auction. The timing of my auction coincided with the tanking of the US economy and I’m afraid that scared off a lot of potential bidders. I’ve seen other Wasp synths sell on eBay for over $1200 even in a non-operating condition.”
As you can hear, the synth’s filter resonances get to sound pretty crazy. Especially when combined with its hold switch, which makes one note continuously ring out.
