After the K-20 Synthesizer teaser, Behringer has another clone in the work. According to matrixsynth.com, Behringer has recently filed a trademark application for the WASP Deluxe Synthesizer. As you can see in the documents, MusicGroup (Behringer) got the trademark.
Already in December 2017 leaks were in the media where they talked about the K-20 as well as the WASP Deluxe. At the same time, the feature list was also released on the Music Tribe website. Whether these are true, we will see.
Behringer described in the leak the product as a legendary analog Synthesizer with dual OSC’s, VCF, multi-mode VCF, 16-voice poly-chain, and Eurorack format.
- Legendary analog synthesizer with dual OSC design allows for insanely fat music creation
- Authentic reproduction of original “Wasp Deluxe” circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs
- Pure analog signal path based on authentic OSC, VCF and VCA designs
- 3 variable oscillator shapes with pulse / ramp and enhanced mode for ultimate sounds
- Switchable, multi-mode VCF with Lo, Hi, Band and Notch modes
- Flexible LFO with 4 waveform shapes, frequency and pitch modulation control
- 2 analog Envelope Generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
- Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation
- 16-voice Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony
- Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
- 29 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters
- External audio input for processing external sound sources
- Comprehensive USB/MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection
- 3-Year Warranty Program*
- Designed and engineered in Germany
I think the WASP Deluxe Synthesizer from Behringer will become reality due of the leaked info on the website from 2017 and the recent Trademark entry. If I get more information including photos, I will update the article asap. The leak from 2017 is available here.

So the release of the eurorack case makes senses now.
