Moog DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) Table Top Semi-Modular Synthesizer

The Moog DFAM presents an expressive hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation. It requires no patching, and absolutely no experience to quickly begin synthesizing new and unique rhythmic compositions. This expansive new live performance and production instrument is handcrafted in Asheville, NC and has been meticulously designed to provide musicians with a diverse array of creative tools to inspire new music, unique sound and endless sonic exploration. It comes secured in a rugged extruded aluminum skiff with wood sides.

Activated by an easy-to-use analog sequencer, the DFAM’s 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.

The DFAM has 3 dedicated analog envelopes that 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.

Available accessories include a 2 and 3 tier rack for connecting Mother-32 for even more Moog madness, 12” (60 HP) or 17” (104 HP) cases (need additional power module), gig bag and greyscale cable sets. (6” and 12”).
