For Sale: Jasper Synth - EDP Wasp Clone + desktop stand

I finished another Jasper Synth (EDP WASP clone). For this Jasper I'm using a slightly re-designed 3D printed case which fits into a desktop stand. For the first time I'm using PETG instead of PLA for the case. PETG is a bit more flexible and not as brittle like PLA printed items. (link: PLA vs PETG ) The Japser comes with MIDI IN and OUT and the switch for 2 different "hold" functions.

The Jasper enclosure is 3D printed (glued together) and consists of the Jasper enclosure and a desktop stand with a wooden element. The Jasper is ready and fully functional but I'm currently waiting for a shipment of screws to finalize the assembly of the casing. The wood on the photo will get a finish with hard oil wax.

Jasper Synth

The Jasper Synth is a clone of the EDP Wasp synthesizer that was made by the small British company EDP ( Electronic Dream Plant ) for a few years from 1978 to 1982. Credits to Jason from .

The Wasp was one of the first commercially available digital/analogue hybrid synthesizers. Designed by Chris Huggett and Adrian Wagner who created it as an affordable synthesizer using the then newly and widely available inexpensive CMOS digital logic chips.


  • 2 x DCO (32', 16', 8', 4', 2') with saw, enhanced, pulse (DCO 1 variable pulse width)
  • Mix level control for each DCO
  • 2 x ADS EG (1xVCA + 1xVCF), both with repeat function
  • 1 * Noise Generator
  • 1 x VCF with low pass, band pass, high and notch
  • 1 x LFO (about 0.55Hz to 100Hz) with saw, square, sine, random and noise filter is resonant (but not self-oscillating)
  • hold function
  • Glide Bend
  • External audio input (DCO independent)
  • MIDI in/out
  • DCO 2 pitch
  • Tune Two octave capacitative touch "keyboard"
  • Headphone and line outs
  • 'Link' port to connect to other Jaspers (Wasps, Gnats or Spiders)
  • External envelope trigger input

The Jasper Synth is a DIY project. PCBs are available from the UK. The Synth comes with the build-in Midi kit.

Some Photos for the Jasper Synth

demo I uploaded a demo of the synthesiser on youtube. It's exactly the offered synthesizer but the video is showing a pre-version of the final casing.
