Clearly the value of a Prodigy is based on its popularity anyway... I hate that the cheapies aren't even cheap anymore. What I still do like very much about the Micromoog is that it does do a deep, rounded bass that cuts in the mix and sounds good. That's pretty much what I use it for. And it probably all depends on musical style, too. I think it definitely has function over sound though, and that could be just as important depending on what it is being used for. I do remember interfacing it with some Foogers I borrowed several years back and that was fun.

I dunno... I played around with one for a week and wasn't that into it. I'm not sure what it was but it was the same feeling I got when I bought a LP in '07 and ditched it within months because it just didn't do it for me. In fact, I ditched the LP and kept the Micromoog because I felt there was still something about it tone-wise that it had that the LP lacked. But I know it's not just me because I've heard plenty of accounts now where people just didn't bond with the LP...
I think my best bet to get over this is to take the Micromoog and hook it up in a different room, separate from my other stuff, and just mess with it for a few hours to start liking it again. And it's probably not worth ditching it for several hundred bucks.
