Moog Music has announce that the Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM), originally only available to Moogfest attendees, is now the second production member of the company’s Eurorack line.
DFAM is first the addition to the ‘Mother’ line of semi-modular analog synthesizers that began with the Mother 32 analog synthesizer, and diverges from the traditional drum machine with a more hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation.
Activated by an easy-to-use analog sequencer, DFAM’s sound begins with a white noise generator and two wide-range analog oscillators. DFAM’s voice is then shaped by a classic Moog Ladder filter with two selectable modes: Low Pass and High Pass.
