A good extra add-on mono-synth, but not great
In the '80s, I was able to pick up one of these used for under $100. Multi-timbral sounds and layering hadn't seen the light of day yet, so I wanted a small monophonic synthesizer to play lead lines and other sounds that were different (a second sound) other than what I was playing on my polyphonic synth. The Prodigy ended up being that synth for me, but truthfully, it wasn't that great. It did the job, but it really lacked the fat oscillator sound (sounded thin), aside from the fact that I was never a big fan of the Moog oscillator sound anyway.
More than a bass synth
The Moog Prodigy is usually meant as a bass synth. But I use it for more than a bass synth. It's got a great tone for Pads and Leads that no one seems to explore all that much. This synth has such a rich unique tone that you just can't help explore the beautiful, subtractive, monophonic synth that it is.
