Introducing Drummer From Another Mother, Moog’s new synthesizer.

Introducing Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM), Moog’s new – and brilliantly named – synthesizer.

The latest offering from the pioneering electro music brand is a neat, easy-to-use bit of kit.

Activated by an 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.

Each DFAM comes with a package of Moog patch cables that unlock access to the 24-point modular patchbay, allowing you to create new sounds, synchronize an unlimited number of DFAM and Mother-32 units together, or fully integrate your analog instrument into a modular Eurorack production environment.

The company enlisted three female DJs from New York – DJ Haram, Stud1nt and Umfang – to appear in the promo video for DFAM.
