A celebration of Moog history supported by rarities from the archives of The Bob Moog Foundation...
Produced from 1979-1984 the Moog Prodigy was a 32 key, dual oscillator, monophonic synthesizer. Each oscillator had selectable saw, triangle, or pulse waveforms, however it was the classic lowpass filter that gave the Prodigy its sought after sound. During its lifespan 11,00 units were produced with a hardware revision coming after serial number 4160 adding CV control to the filter. The Prodigy was originally intended as an affordable entry-level synth, but quickly gained a foothold as a bass synth in the techno and electronic scene, gaining particular popularity in the UK. The Prodigy has been used by Trent Reznor, Depeche Mode, Blur, and is reported to be the inspiration for the band Prodigy's name.
