Electronic Dream Plant (EDP) Spider
The Caterpillar is a 3-octave master keyboard that can be used to control up to four inter-connected Wasp synthesizers and played polyphonically. It also works with the Gnat. Fairly basic, it came with wood panels and does not respond to velocity or aftertouch.
The Spider is a 256-note step, or 84-note real time digital sequencer to control the Wasp and/or Gnat. It features a few simple controls for entering notes in step or real time and transposing the sequence a semi-tone, whole-tone, major-3rd, or perfect-5th as well as speed controls. Although it has EDP's own pre-MIDI interface for connecting it to other EDP gear, it also had CV/Gate outputs for connecting it to other analog synths too.
