Ensure Sound Prodigy VCO
For their new Prodigy VCO (12HP), Ensure Sound uses again the Moog Prodigy circuit. This time not as a complete voice but only as a full-analog VCO. The developer says it’s a modified clone of the original oscillator section realized with modern SMD components.
Prodigy VCO features four waveforms (saw, pulse, triangle, sine) and a square waveform sub-oscillator with -1 and -2 octaves. Each waveform, as well as the sub-oscillator, has individual outputs. For the tuning, you get a precision tune potentiometer rotary counter knob. Next to this, you get a 5-octave range rotary switch.
The available waveforms can also be shaped/deformed in many ways using pulse width modulation (PWM), linear & logarithmic FM, soft and hard sync. So seen well-equipped VCO with a lot of features. And many of these are additions to the original circuit.
There is currently no sound demo for the Prodigy VCO. Since this is based on the ER-16 voice, you can use it as a sound reference.
The Prodigy VCO is a clone, it’s no secret. Thanks to the new features, the module is significantly more versatile than the original. If you are looking for the Moog Prodigy sound for the rack, this module could be very interesting.
