My first synth was a Prodigy, and I had lots of fun with it...I couldn't afford a MiniMoog and the Prodigy gave me a close approximation to the Mini sound at a much cheaper price...I used it extensively on my first two independently-released albums...it's great for stabbing lead lines and special effects...run it thru an effects box for even more tonal variation...the band Joy Electric uses the Prodigy; it's even pictured on the cover of their "Robot Rock" CD. It's a nice little synth; I wish I still had mine!

I bough mine a couple months ago off my college instructor for 20 BUCKS!!! Love that fat juicy analog sound. One goofy but cool trick i devised was to run it though a Boss SX-700 FX processor and tape, yes tape, a key down and go to town double knob twisting! you can really get into it and come up with wierd ambient textures to help back up your track.

The PRODIGY is a fantsastic synth. I use it mainly for bass, brass and weird noises. It has an amazingly warm and full sound that only Moogs can have. Though it is a little limited. You find that out after playing it for a couple of months. But that doesn't matter becasue the existing sounds it makes are great!

The sync switch makes some great leads and one can acheive brilliant percussive noises with a little tweaking.It really is a marvelous synth if you explore all possibilities.

Great little synth for beginners and old hands alike!

Bought mine from a pro-musician from Bulgaria!!! Very moogish sound, but a quit simple synthesizer though it has two oscillators. I miss a more advanced modulator(lfo) section and PWM. Anyway, great for leads and basses. Not a synth for special effects. I think its sounds are very close to the "mini".

The Prodigy is my favourite 'spiritual' lead synth.

Put it next to a huge cathedral organ with a square-wave

flute-like sound (Jan Hammer) and you are in the church

of the holy Moog! Do some mediation while it's warming up.

btw everyone believes you if you tell them it's a REAL mini.
