As some of the negative reviews point out, Moog is a brand name so well known and loved that its popularity sometimes exceeds the actual value of the product. This is true of the Prodigy and Rogue. Afterall these models were designed as budget synths, they simply weren't built to compete with the versatality of the MiniMoog. All this sounds rather negative, but the Prodigy is a great little synth. Very easy to use, some great sounds and yes that bass is there (albeit more subdued than a Mini.) However if you are willing to fork out £300+ for this model, and your hoping for analogue heaven. Well save up a bit more cash and invest in a Odyssey or MS20, you'll never run out of new sounds with those beasts. The Prodigy is limited, unless you have a rack of external effects to process it through. Then again like a Combo Organ those limited sounds are all wonderful.

The Prodigy was the 1st synth I ever bought. At £400 I was gonna forgett it, but took the risk anyway. And now I am soooo glad I got it! Sending it through a BOSS anologue guitar pedal makes it kaick ass even more than it already does!

A kick ass instrument

I found my one in a room of a student who paint the moog black. O.k. I,ve got a job to do. Now the panels got the original color again. I love this instrument because it give me a special kind of feeling. The sound can be so mellow or otherwise raw. Use it in combination with a good reverb. I use the instrument in combination with cubase SX and play it over a audiotrack in combination with a Doepfer converter. Believe me. This is a very good comabination. Play a little with the nice filters and the tune knob.

Greetings. MoooooN.

A prodigy is maybe not a minimoog. That's totally true but a prodigy is a great bass machine. I use my one in combination with cubase sx (as sequencer) in combination with a doepfer mcv4 midi converter. TIP TIP TIP. Send it true a channel with a nice mod-delay and you've got a great bass sounds. Wow, wow wow. Jippy Ya YOEHOE. Try it!!! I like the design, I like the wood I like the knob's And most of all the interval unison. Play with it use it on a creative way..Jippie Ya yeeeeh.

I finally got my MiniMoog and the Prodigy a few months ago. Sorry, but I have to agree with the MiniMoog purists: The Prodigy definitely can't compete with the Mini. It is quite limited, less warm/fatt and doesn't give you the pressure on deep basses that blasts you away when just tickling the Mini's lower keys - guess that missing OSC does make a difference ;-)

BUT: The Prodigy does have its own sound again, though, which the Mini can't give you. My favourite: Just below self-resonance, with a good amount of contour and an audible cutoff freq., feed it through an overdriven tube pre-amp or other means of warm distortion while quickly tweaking the pitch wheel to change the sync on accents of your acid/lead line and it sounds like a hmmm... anyway - GREAT ! (Listen to The Prodigy's 'fire starter' intro...)

Again: IMHO, if you need a good deep bass guitar or even lower subbass style synth, try the Mini, the DX7 (yes!) or the MS20. But hey, everyone has different recipes here ;-)
