The team at Moog have set tongues wagging ahead of NAMM 2018 – introducing the Moog DFAM Semi-Modular Analog Percussion Synthesizer – or Moog Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) Semi-Modular Analog Percussion Synth. Let’s take a closer look
The brand new Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) percussion synth is the set to change the face of the traditional drum machine. This highly-interactive, Semi-Modular Analog Percussion Synthesizer has been hand crafted by the employee-owners at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC and is the first new product in the Mother-32 family of synthesizers.
The Moog DFAM offers a far more expressive, hands-on experience when it comes to pattern creation and has been designed to be as easy as possible to operate. It doesn’t require any patching and Moog have designed the DFAM so “human-beings of any age” can quickly begin synthesizing new and unique rhythmic compositions.
The DFAM is activated by an easy-to-use analogue sequencer and utilises a white noise generator and two wide-range analogue oscillators to create its emotive sounds. In addition, you can achieve effortless transitions between rhythmic pulsations via the intuitive oscillator hard sync and FM cross-modulation as well as huge resounding bass and bell noises instantly.
Low Pass and High Pass modes offer up a range of expressive spikes and strikes and a world of accentuations never before heard in a percussion synth.

You can really bring out your unique sound thanks to 3 dedicated analogue envelopes which work with the sequencer to ensure each percussive note can go from bone crunching impacts to subdued , subtle hits at the turn of a knob.
In the package, you get a selection of Moog patch cables that unlock access to the 24-point modular patchbay which you can use to create unique sounds and bizarre behaviours or even synchronize an unlimited number of DFAM and Mother-32 units together. In addition you can fully integrate your analog instrument into a modular Eurorack production environment for complete music creation.
