Manufacturer Description:

Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) is a highly-interactive,Semi-Modular Analog Percussion Synthesizer and a vibrant deviation from the

traditional drum machine. Handcrafted in Asheville, NC by the employee-ownersat the Moog Factory, DFAM is the first addition to the Mother-32 family ofsynthesizers and presents a uniquely expressive hands-on approach to percussivepattern creation. It requires no patching, and absolutely no experience isneeded for human-beings of any age to quickly begin synthesizing new and uniquerhythmic compositions.

Activated by an easy-to-use analog sequencer, DFAM’s emotive soundbegins with a noise generator and two wide-range analog oscillators. Oscillatorhard sync and FM cross-modulation invite effortless transitions betweenrhythmic pulsations, resounding bass and resonant bells in an instant. DFAM’sdistinctive voice is then shaped by a versatile Moog Ladder filter with twoselectable modes: Low Pass mode imparts impact and dimension to each sound ittouches, while High Pass mode opens the door to naturally expressive strikes,spikes and clangorous accentuations.

DFAM behaves much like a living organism, reacting in differentways to different individuals. This is due to 3 dedicated analog envelopesworking dynamically with the sequencer to ensure that tribal toms breathe,industrial impacts evolve, and cacophonous chaos can be spawned or subdued atthe turn of a knob.

Each DFAM ships with a package of Moog patch cables that unlockaccess to the 24-point modular patchbay. Use it to create new sounds or bizarrebehaviors, synchronize an unlimited number of DFAM and Mother-32 unitstogether, or fully integrate your analog instrument into a modular Eurorackproduction environment.

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