Prodigy ...S trig ?

Post by Rarecomponentadsr » Thu Jun 04, 2020 10:56 am

Doing some quick research on the Prodigy...

Main query is the keyboard controller..does it work via S trig or V trig ?
also is conversion to cv/midi straight forward via Kenton etc for
DIY ...I have a fair amount of experience. ...?

Also is there a euro clone of the prodigy ?

If the Prodigy got factory built in CV and Gate input sockets, it is S trigger and labeled with S trigger.
The first Prodigy revision where without CV and Gate connections. If these where later often retrofitted. And most likely the the more common V trigger. But you could also add S trigger. See the official (?) description scanned here:
http://www.florian-anwander.de/moog_prodigy/

The Prodigy schematics are available online at several sources. Like: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10003 ... tml#manual
... also is conversion to cv/midi straight forward via Kenton ...
I think you are looking to control the Prodigy via MIDI. So MIDI to CV.

Prodigy * minimoog '79 * Voyager * MF102 * MF103 * MF104z * MP201 * Taurus 3 * Minitaur * Sub Phatty * MF105 * Minimoog 2017+ MUSE * One 16

Till.....

Many many thanks for super photos and reply ...this is SO helpful !

Can you tell me what the board at the upper left of the keyboard is ?
I know that’s where the output is etc but it looks like there’s components
it’s hard to see. . Is it the Midi CV processor ?
I believe that the main board is the only board in the Prodigy apart from power supply and keyboard but now I’m wondering ?
Have you any further info what this board does ?

Regards

These two boards are:
- left: Doepfer CTM64 for MIDI-Out (this is why there are so many ribbon cables from the key contacts to the logic board)
- right: Doepfer MCV4 for MIDI-In

The unmodified Prodigy is just the main PCB with all the knobs and the PSU and the left hand section.

It’s been a while but when I got my moog rogue I bought a Doepfer midi to CV adapter for it and in addition to setting the dip switches on the Doepfer I think I also had to reverse the polarity of the cable to make it work. If I remember I’ll take a look after work tonight.
