EDP, Gnat @ 13 September 2016, Comments Off on EDP Gnat Special

edp-gnat-special “Up for auction, a very rare Electronic Dream Plant (EDP) Gnat Special Synthesizer. This is synth is in unique and is capable of wonder vintage analog synth sounds. The synth is working, the oscillators can be very brilliant, raw, and deep with bass ranges. Combined with the juicy analog filter it’s synth heaven. The Enhance mode oscillator sounds particularly amazing, its the best sounding bass oscillator you’ll have at your disposal. Used in a professional sound design studio, smoke free.

Synth collectors take note, this item has an interesting history/provenance. I purchased it directly from one of the EDP founders Adrian Wagner (also a descendant relative of the composer Richard Wagner). He signed the bottom. This unit is a very early Gnat Special, there isn’t a serial number. ” Link

EDP, Gnat @ 12 February 2013, Comments Off on EDP Gnat

“This is my very rare Gnat synth, similar to the Wasp however it is much smaller and features a single oscillator. The Gnat features pulse width modulation which gives a very powerful sound especially for bass. It is monophonic of course and features a distinctive black and yellow touch sensitive membrane keyboard. It currently works on batteries as I’ve no adapter for it so can’t test this but it is purported to work on mains also. It has a built in – rather weedy – speaker so you can busk with it! It really comes into its own with an amp and produces earth shattering bass and rich analog lead sounds. I have also used it to create many effects and theremin- like spooky weirdness.
Condition wise its typical of an old EDP, pots are crackly, one knob has been replaced and the case has been broken and repaired in several places. It could do with a service however all functions work and all ‘keys’ trigger. It’s a very rare synth and a reluctant sale. Sorry I’d prefer not to ship abroad as I’d prefer collection in person if possible. It’s a delicate old thing and I doubt it will travel well.” Link

“Vintage Synthesizer for sale, working but in need of some care and attention.

The unit is in good shape and most importantly the oscillator fires up and sounds healthy. All the knobs still function. There a couple of the original knobs missing but the stems of the control still function

The tune ans sens knobs are a little stiff but still function, nothing a good service wouldn’t sort out

Audio is Mono out.

Can post outside UK but postage will have to be quoted after auction depending on location.

Classic piece of gear in need of a good home.” Link

EDP, Gnat @ 11 September 2012, Comments Off on EDP Gnat Modded with Bass Pedal Input

“Rooting around the loft I came across this blast from the past recently. Stuck in some batteries and wonder of wonders it worked like I remembered. Cosmetic condition is about what you would expect for something around 30 years old but it was certainly never gigged or otherwise abused.

Electronic Dream Plant came up with this minisynth as a a single-oscillator version of the famous and well loved Wasp. It has one digital oscillator and analog circuitry with a basic lowpass resonant filter, an envelope with Attack and Decay controls, an LFO which can modulate the pitch or filter, and a built-in speaker.

Like the Wasp, it has a very un-playable touch-sensitive keyboard with 25 flat mini-keys, which is where the bass pedals come in. I had this modded somewhere back in the 80s to take (as far as I remember) analogue note input from the bass pedals so there is no reason why it couldn’t be re-moddded to accept MIDI input. The 15-pin D shaped plug has about 8 feet of connecting lead from pedals to synth so there is no problem sitting the Gnat on top of your keyboards to access the knobs.

There is a 9v DC input to one side of the case but this appears to be non-standard (for modern equipment anyway) and I cannot find anything that fits to test it. Similarly there is what looks like a DIN connector which was used to link other EDP equipment – again I have no means of testing this.

Please note that due to the age of this item I cannot guarantee it to be fully reliable in live situations and the item is therefore being sold “as is” for further modding. That said however, I have tested it and it still appears to function as well as ever.

Please note also that the pedals are heavy and I would recommend collection in person ” Link

“Presenting my EDP Gnat.

Carefully looked after and has been in regular use in my studio since I bought this synth.

It has had the elby designs midi retrofit installed – this has no impact on how the synth looks – the wasp interface simply becomes a midi input socket !

Elby designs are still operational and continue to provide really good support for upgrades to the midi interface O/S

Correct power adaptor supplied (it has a strange ‘mini jack’ type socket)

The synth itself is in great condition – the membrane keyboard works as well as I can imagine it ever has done!

Some of the pots need a few crackly twists to clean the signal if they haven’t been used for a few days but this would be very easy to fix.

Also, the battery compartment cover is missing. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Very rare Electronic Dream Plant (EDP) Gnat Synthesiser, fully working but the case is in a very poor condition (usual cracking) and some of the pots may need a clean. This would be ideal as a donor synth for a good case or to build into a new custom case or for spares (though it is fully functioning so I hope not). Runs from batteries or PSU (neither supplied).” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
