didn't OMD use one as well? i think i have an ancient E&MM issue with an interview that said that. i always figured that was the very prominent synth on Enola Gay...

I'm not aware of that they used a Wasp back in the day.

The lead synth on "Enola Gay" is the Korg Micro-Preset. It's responsible for most of the string parts/lines (often multi-tracked) on their first two albums.

Also Korg MS-20, Roland SH-09 and SCI prophet 5 as per screenshot below:

Would Talking Head’s early albums be considered post punk? If so, I think their keyboard player used a Yamaha YC-45D and a Prophet-5 as well as maybe another synth of some sort. I don’t know what Synth they used on their first 2 albums but I know he was a fan of the Prophet-5 and Yamaha organ.
Korg, Casio, Alesis, and Yamaha (Minilogue, WK-7600, SK-1, CT-X3000, SR-16, MX49)
FL Studio 12, VSTs, MIDI keyboard
Non synths include string, woodwind, percussion, and toys for SFX.
