Signed Moog synth basic, portable, lightweight and specializes in the bass.
Simplistic architecture, everything is at hand and very educational.
It is a single course and only controllable via CV / Gate.
However the keyboard is very 'cheap' just a notch above a Prophet One is to say.

UTILIZATION

Level use is fine, everything is in front of you so a = 1 function knob.
At this level we can say that the prodigy as many mono analog that time (early 80's) is very simple.

SOUNDS

So on this point as to say right now is frankly the basic Moog. We can say that the sound is to go and found the low 80's full of electro pop group but after this finding is bored. But we must remain clear on its primary function (bass) and the time when it was built. Surely a revolution at its output (a Moog keyboard light and portable!) But now a bit overwhelmed as to what is in this range and above the price offered in opportunity does not mean anything.
It has nothing to do with Prophet One example (its competitor at the time) which, in contrast, appears quite exciting in its exploration.

OVERALL OPINION

It is a synhé I like but I hate the gain made because there are marked above Moog. When I see price € 900, I think that potential buyers must have a clear idea of ​​what to expect with the Prodigy. For my part I had bought € 500 and sold the same price to a friend who was inflated with 2 moog fooger for not going in circles. Well in the end it makes a nice addition for a synth of this type.
And in all honesty a Moog Little Phatty will do the same (with less potato) with + opportunities, extension, and updated connectors midi / usb.
