Picked up two of these from a pawn shop in monrovia 10 years ago for 60 bucks. they are great for biting leads with distortion that I use with the pitch bend wheel. the sound can be thin and fat but it's not as versitile as my mini or arp but get one if you can and at the right current price which is about $400 now, but beware, I have seen people trying to pass them as mini's or the equivilant at outrageous prices.

THE OSCILLATORS ON THE PRODIGY ARE VIRTUALLY IDENTICAL TO THE LAST MODEL OF THE MINIMOOG

SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS SHOW 95% SIMILARITY TO THE OSCILLATOR SECTIONS OF LATE MINI. THE SYNC.

SWITCH USES ONLY ONE EXTRA COMPONENT, A J-FET TRANSISTOR LOCKED ON TO THE J-FET IN OSC.2.

THE FILTER IS VIRTUALLY IDENTICAL TO THAT IN THE MULTI AND MICROMOOGS, ELECTRICALLY.

MIDI'D THIS INSTRUMENT CAN EASILLY HANDLE 6 OCTAVES IF CALLIBRATED CORRECTLY.

MY PRODIGYS[2] TUNE UP IN ABOUT 3 MINS. AND CAN BE PITCH BENT HIGH WITHOUT 'BEATING'.

I THINK THAT THE PRODIGY IS AN EXCELLENT INSTRUMENT CAPABLE OF EXPANSION WITH ALITTLE KNOWHOW!

I bought my Prodigy new back in 1980 when I was in HS. It has a great sound, especially for bass. Excellent sync too! And cool noises when you crank the rez ('emphasis').

Hey Prodigites: my cool tricks!

Open your Prodigy's case and remove the pins from the pitch wheel. Now you can tune the puppy down an extra octave for thumpin' bass. I like using OSC#1 at 32' and triangle, and OSC#2 at 16' with saw or square. Mix OSC#1 at 10 and OSC#2 at about 2 or 3. VCA sustain at 5 or 6, no release. A little resonance, a little envelope & tweak that filter. Thick...

Push the LFO waveform switch halfway between the two choices (tri/square). Switch on the LFO->Oscillator switch and move the modulation wheel... Switch on the LFO->Filter switch and move the modulation wheel... Yee-haa!
