If I'm looking for the smooth but thick (and sometimes 'flutey') tones of a vintage Moog (rather just deep bass and cutting leads), I assume that I will get slightly deceived by the LP and more pleased by the Micromoog, right?
And what about the Source?

i'd go for the Prodigy any day. i own 2 Model D minimoogs, i think the sound of the Prodigy is pretty much spot-on with those. i also prefer the Prodigy to my Pro One.

Look for a Multimoog. 2 VCO's plus LFO, aftertouch that can do amazing VCO sync expression stuff, and that sound.
