The Moog DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) is the first percussive, modular synth in their acclaimed Mother Series. Designed for fun and intuitive analogue rhythm pattern creation, DFAM is the perfect accompaniment to any Moog Mother Modular system, or as a standalone drum synth for music production in any studio setup.
Unlike a 'drum machine', with pre-set tones and sequencer, Moog DFAM melds these concepts into one - it can seamlessly shift from producing bass drums to snares, 'hats' to bass tones, to wild effects and to lead sounds, all on the same machine from moment to moment, simply depending on how you configure the onboard sequencers and patch settings! There is no other standalone product on the market like it.
Powerful Synth Engine
Powered by an easy-to-use analogue sequencer, DFAM’s emotive sound begins with a white noise generator and two wide-range analog oscillators - effortlessly transitioning between rhythmic pulsations, resounding bass and resonant bells in an instant. DFAM’s distinctive voice is then shaped by a classic Moog Ladder filter with two selectable modes: Low Pass mode imparts impact and dimension to each sound it touches, while High Pass mode opens the door to naturally expressive strikes, spikes and clangorous accentuations.
3 dedicated analog envelopes work dynamically with the sequencer to ensure that tribal toms breathe, industrial impacts evolve, and sonic chaos can be created or subdued at the turn of a knob.
Paired with a Mother-32, DFAM offers an incredible world of pounding analogue rhythm and bass that could drive the heart of a stunning improvised live performance rig, or add hands-on inspiration to any studio setup. It is also can be configured as a traditional two-oscillator Moog lead and bass synthesizer, and, as with Mother-32 - removed from the included chassis for use in Eurorack systems.
Each DFAM ships with a package of Moog patch cables that unlock access to the 24-point modular patchbay. Use it to create new sounds or bizarre behaviors, synchronize an unlimited number of DFAM and Mother-32 units together, or fully integrate your analogue instrument into a modular Eurorack production environment.
Through exploration and experimentation, the sonic potential of the Moog DFAM begins to unfold.
