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.

Activated by an easy-to-use analog 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.

DFAM behaves much like a living organism, reacting in different ways to different individuals. 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.

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 analog instrument into a modular Eurorack production environment.

Through exploration and experimentation, the vast potential of this expressive analog instrument is realized.

Moog comes through once again what a great machine and great sounds; also, very warm.





MOOG's release of the DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) has changed my life! At least, how I approach synthesis and drum sequencing. The DFAM is a 2 VCO analog synth with no notable unique components at first glance. The magic comes from how these components are ordered and triggered in the DFAM. Each VCO has a dedicated envelope generator (so does the filter), with control over the EG decay. Basically this means you can get some nasty sounding kick drum sounds reminiscent of the 808 and 909, but with even more beef and punch. Both VCO's are independently tunable from 20-20k, and you have an 8 step sequencer controlling velocity and pitch. I can't even get into everything this piece has to offer, you simply have to try it for yourself. The options are endless, especially with the patch bay. This is a fantastic machine. This is a Sam Ash Employee Review.
