Question about external controls for my Prodigy

Post by Alphacode » Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:27 am

Hi All

I am looking for a pedal / simple Synth or something that would have a Lfo out and /or envelope out to control my Prodigy ...

I was looking at moog pedals but did not see one containing an envelope . Any help ?

All Moogerfooger pedals with LFOs have an LFO out, all the foogers with envelope followers have EG outs.

Moog Little Phatty II with the optional CV outs has two EG outputs.

The Doepfer Dark Energy has LFO and EG outputs.

MFB Microzwerg and Kraftzwerg have EG and LFO outputs.

Get the Moog midi/multi pedal. You can configure it to control whatever you want. Plus it gets you a great midi/cv converter and an expression pedal.

They're not easy to find always but they pop up for around 4-500.

I'm assuming you've checked the rear of your Prodigy and have the "Mk2" version with the full compliment of CV interfacing? Just thought I'd bring that up before you bought something that might not be able to interface with it at all :)

Ha ! 2-3 hours of fiddling inside the Prodigy and my Sh09 and now the Prodigy internal envelope is sweeping the Osc Sync ( like the Rogue ) and the SH09 has an Lfo out ( instead of the headphones socket ) that can control the Prodigy too. ! That MicroZwerg was interesting though but unavailable anymore :(
