ProdMod is a new Ableton instrument library with sounds derived from a customized Moog Prodigy. The Prodigy that was sampled has got a breakout connection with a handmade patchbay attached to it. This allows to interrupt and split the synth’s internal wirings and therefore offers much more sonic possibilities that go far beyond the off-the-shelf version.
ProdMod Live Pack contains 30 multi-sample instruments in Abletons Live’s Rack format that transfer the sound of this vintage mono synth into today’s music production environments.
The library delivers diversified material as the source for fat basslines, lively synth and keyboard sounds, warm pads or idiosyncratic oddities.
Format: Ableton Live Pack, Live 8/9
Disk space: 200 MB
ProdMod Live Pack is available to purchase as download for 9.00 Euro.
This is a quick demo of the Sub Phatty’s presets and basic features. This is not a musical statement, but an exhibition of the sound and control of the synth.
Tenori-on MIDI sync to the MFB desktop Filter and the Urzwerg Pro sequencer.
Tenori “drums” are through the MFB Filter & it is sequencing:
1) Moog Minitaur
2) Cwejman S1
3) Moog Slim Phatty
4) Prophet 08
Then the Urzwerg Pro seq. the Polivoks.

In this video one uses a TC-Helicon VoiceWorks, VirSyn HarmonyVoice app, Ableton Live and abunch of Moog and other synth gear to create an interesting vocal performance environment. Analog Control Voltage step sequencing created by Ableton Live and a Moog Multi-Pedal ad an interesting rhythmic dimension.

Playing the Multimoog with reverb effects from a Lexicon MPX-500 and delay effects from a Roland DEP-5.
The Multimoog is a highly versatile analog monophonic synthesizer. It is basically an extended version of the Micromoog, which came out 3 years before. It features a ribbon controller and a touch sensitive keyboard. It has many interesting modulation routings and has a powerful, analog sound.
The Multimoog has 2 VCOs and a suboscillator. The filter can be modulated by the oscillator B in different ways. It has oscillator sync, noise generator, sample & hold, mixable oscillator waveforms, pulse width modulation, the 24 dB Moog filter and two envelopes. It has all interfacing you would expect from a good monophonic synth: CV / Gate IN and OUT, EXTERNAL SIGNAL IN, VCF IN. You can even play a Moog modular system from the Micromoog keyboard.

Slow improvisation on two classic Moog synths – the Moog Minimoog and the Moog Source
Moog’s Source was their first to offer patch memory storage as well as some other new features. It boasted 16 memory locations so you could finally save and recall your synth patches. A casette-tape jack was also implemented to transfer your patches to and from an external tape and free up the on-board memory for additional new patches. But in an effort to modernize with the eighties, the Moog had replaced all buttons, knobs and sliders with flat-panel membrane buttons and a single data-wheel assignment format. At the time, this may have seemed far-out, but in all actuality it is the Source’s downfall.
Parameters are edited not with hands-on sliders and knobs but by assigning a selected parameter to the dedicated data wheel. This is very tedious and does not allow for true hands-on tweaking during performances nor can you adjust different parameters simultaneously or while playing. These days, the membrane buttons don’t always seem to work quite right either. However, those famous monophonic Moog sounds are still inside this synth which has two fat analog oscillators and the legendary 24 dB Moog filter.
