Would you get a Moog Rogue or a Prodigy?

Postby WhinyLittleRunt » Sun Mar 29, 2015 9:16 pm

I want to get another inexpensive Moog to play with and I had originally been eyeballing the Prodigy but I started thinking again about the Rogue and the MG-1... I used to own the latter and regret selling it even to this day, but I loved that thing. Now I wonder if I should look into re-buying one or jump to a Rogue for the performance controls and better interface options?

The Prodigy came with decent ins and outs also if it was a mk2, and I do like knobs better than sliders, but at the end of the day there is still a good enough price difference between the two on the used market. I feel like everything I'd use it for I can do on the Rogue... Anyone have an opinion of the difference in sound between the two or anything else? I will honestly say that having owned an MG-1 already I didn't like the RCA audio outputs and lack of wheels and never used the poly mode, but other than that it was sick as a lead and bass synth for my taste.

After having owned both, I'd actually go with an MG1 again. The sound wasn't as heavy as the Prodigy, but the other features made it far more versatile. I had installed 1/4" outputs on mine, along with a couple really simple mods.
