Behringer has announced yet another synth clone - this time they have set their sights on the deluxe version of the EDP Wasp, the famed monophonic synth used by artists like Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran and Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics.

Behringer's Wasp has two digital oscillators, each with three variable wave shapes (pulse, ramp and enhanced mode) with pulse width modulation on Oscillator 1 and variable pitch control on Oscillator 2. There's an analog VCF with high-pass, low-pass, notch and band-pass modes, along with sweepable resonance. Also an LFO (with six selectable waveforms and pitch and frequency mod controls) plus two analog envelope generators.

Unlike the original Wasp, Behringer's version is keyboard-less and designed as a Eurorack-compatible module. It's available for pre-order now at Sweetwater for $298.99.
