This time no Minimoog, no Phatty, no MoogerFooger, no … The Moog DFAM is a real drum computer – an analog synthesizer with step-sequencer. The DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) can be used as a stand-on device or in any Eurorack modular system. Certainly, the combination of DFAM and MOTHER-32 looks particularly elegant.
The DFAM concept is classic, yet flexible: 2 analog oscillators and noise provide the necessary sounds, and the attached patchbay can be used for in-depth sound-programming and cross-patching.

“DFAM is the first addition to the Mother ecosystem of synthesizers and presents an expressive hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation. It requires no patching, and absolutely no experience is needed for human-beings of any age to quickly begin synthesizing new and unique rhythmic compositions.”
