” Moog Prodigy Synthesizer from the late 70s/early 80s.
It’s in pretty reasonable condition, though the wooden end cheeks have a few light scratches (see photos) – these could be fixed by a light layer of varnish.
In full working order.
There have been a couple of modifications made: there are two additional toggle switches. One changes the filter settings, the other appears to do nothing. These were in place when I bought the synth from another user a few years ago.
Here are some details from the net:
The Prodigy features two Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs), one with a sawtooth waveform, a triangle waveform, and a pulse waveform, the second with a sawtooth, a triangle, and a square waveform. These waveforms can be detuned up or down by more than a fifth, allowing for the creation of thick pads as well as atonal sounds. The two oscillators could be synchronized as well, then altered using the pitch wheel (in sync mode, the pitch wheel would alter the tonality of the sound, not the pitch. Roaring synth leads were made possible using this feature.)
The voltage controlled 4-pole low-pass filter uses the typical Moog transistor ladder filter design. There is a dedicated 3-stage ADR envelope controller (ADR short for Attack Decay Release).
The Prodigy is capable of a full range of synthetic sounds, from a gentle whistle or flute in the upper ranges, to sub-sonic bass. The voltage controlled amplifier (VCA) was controllable only via a second 3-stage ADR envelope controller.
The low frequency oscillator (LFO) of the Prodigy features a triangle and square waveform, which can be routed to the VCO or VCF to create pitch or filter modulation effects.
