the prodigy has the same 24db ladder filter as the mini right??
I read somewhere the Mini's design for resonance is not constant Q, so as cutoff approaches the bottom end of the spectrum(with an envelope or LFO filter sweep) resonance starts to decrease. Try just manual sweeps at different resonance settings with no envelope and see if it has da ballz.

The Morpheus manual book is the best from all manual I have. Those filters is a gem, unpredictable at time, but they are powerful.

that would be the right words for the synth, not to mention layering those sound in the performance mode.

so.. while I still think it's a limited synth, I am fully in love with this little bastard!

ok.. wow.. I get it now..

I spent a good chunk of today recording some little demos with it and I'm kind of stunned by how fat and big it is... and that's just one oscillator..


feel free to give me one of these: :roll:

I would also never give mine...i know Minimoog has much more possibilities, the Prodigy is very very limited, but sometimes, less is more. Perfect for live playing. You have a strong bass, you can change the sound in 2 seconds from a bass to a creamy lead sound with portamento...

I have the model with CV / Gate. And i can tell you it make wonderful bass sequences with my step sequencer. :wink:

You're absolutely right about sequencing with it, one of the best 2 osc bassline killers. I've been borrowing a friends indefinitely for those purposes. 8)

Mine is one of the pre-CV/gate models but a previous owner modified it with CV/gate inputs..... it's a godsend! If not for those inputs I would probably have sold mine a while ago. Basslines? Prodigy.

i actually got my 106 for free, i spotted it in a friend's storage shed on their santa cruz mountains estate... it had bugs living in it!
