Interesting thought to mull over here. If the Prodigy ER-16 was a Behringer clone of the Moog Prodigy would it affect your opinion or make you want it less or more? Behringer synth clones have been making headlines over the past 6 months. But being impartial, we wanted to ensure non-Behringer led clones also got some of the synth spotlight.
The Prodigy ER-16 is a modified clone of the original famous and popular Moog Prodigy analog synthesizer. The original dual-oscialltor 32-key Prodigy was used as a bass synth by many, and became a very popular entry-level monsynth, even though apparently Bob Moog wasn’t involved in its development.

The maker of the Prodigy ER-16 says it sounds as good as the original. Watch the video and take a listen to the audio samples below. This synth, however, dispenses with the keyboard in favor of being a Eurorack 42HP.
