Rogue is a simplified and cheap Moog Prodigy alternative.

The synthesizer is based on two voltage controlled oscillators (VCO) capable of operating within a range of three octaves. Only two waveforms are available: sawtooth and rectangular. The OSC2 can be synchronized with OSC1 or operate in an interval (from several notes up to the whole octave).

To build complex sounds, a modulatable LFO is provided. It produces a triangular waveform that can be converted into a meander and a complex pulse signal. The LFO has frequency control and generating assignment switches (VCO and VCF).

In this synthesizer there is also a functional unit, which largely determines the "moog" sound - VCF. It has cutoff, resonance, modulation depth (AMT) control, and enables keybord track.

The envelope generator has an attack time and release time adjustment, as well as a sustain which can be switched off. Its signal can only be controlled by the VCA.

The VCA does not have manual controls, you can only select the control signal source - can be an envelope generator or a keyboard.

The mixer blends signals from two VCOs and a built-in white noise generator.

The synthesizer is very popular among French House performers. Also the synthesizer was used in the records by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, Radiohead.

Moog positioned Prodigy as an "entry-level synthesizer", the instrument was devised to familiarize newcomers with the world of synthesizers. But the history makes it obvious that this synthesizer is not only a toy, but also a device that in many ways...

Taurus II is a Moog Rogue version adapted for foot play. The synthesizer is divided into two blocks: a desktop synthesizer module with all controls and a foot pedalboard. The synthesizer was less popular than its predecessor (Taurus I) due to the less flexible settings and the lack of presets.
