The Drummer From Another Mother is Moog's highly interactive semi-modular percussion synthesizer with an all-analog sound and a vibrant deviation from the traditional drum machine model. As part of Moog's semi-modular synthesizer series, the DFAM share some striking similarities to the Mother-32, as you can start crafting sounds straight away, or breakout of the box using the included patch bay to expand your sound-shaping options. The Drummer From Another Mother presents a uniquely expressive hands-on approach to percussive pattern creation, invoking a deeply personal bond between creator and creation. Emphasizing tactile exploration and experimentation, DFAM inspires completely new and unique manners with which visceral rhythms can be synthesized, expressed, and experienced. DFAM effortlessly moves from gently evolving undulations and cyclical breathing patterns to hammering bass and clangorous cacophony, but the true beauty of this unique instrument lies in its ability to continuously spark inspiration through the repeated discovery of new and dynamic perspectives in percussive synthesis.


  • Semi-modular design, no patching required
  • 100% analog with unbridled sonic flexibility for a lifetime of percussive inspiration
  • Two Oscillators for an ultra-wide range sound generation
  • Dynamically sculpt your sound with an analog Low Pass or High Pass Ladder filter.
  • 8-step analog sequencer with velocity sensitivity 
  • 24 patch points take you out of of the box, and into modular expansion
  • Easily remove DFAM from its case and mount it into a Eurorack system

DFAM: it's potential and limits

By Jared

Comments about Moog Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) Percussion Synthesizer:

I bought this particularly for adding some dirt to my techno productions. I use it with the Roland TR-09 and TR-08, boutique versions of the 909 & 808. After playing around with it I was pleasantly surprised that it can do more than one may think. You can get some magnificently weird and spacey sounds, including some similar to the TB-303 acid resonance. It does seem to produce harmonic content when using it for sounds other than percussion. The only downfall is that you won't know what key it is by looking at the unit itself. You would have to figure it out by ear or using a plugin. You also can't store your sounds or patterns, though they have a downloadable PDF on there Moog site that allows you to draw in your settings. There is also no midi control. You can sync the DFAM's clock to another midi-capable device via a 3/8" mono cable and control tempo that way. When I'm recording I just record the whole audio while I'm jamming around, then go back and chop it up. All in all, if midi playback isn't a must for you, it's a great addition. Definitely not a recommendation as your first piece of gear.


Just ok?

Comments about Moog Drummer From Another Mother (DFAM) Percussion Synthesizer:

I took this out of my Eurorack because it takes up too much space for the features offered. Sounds ok, but limited, and dialing in specific sounds is more complex than with some other modules. It definitely has a certain character that may also not offer as much tweakability as one would expect in a unit this large and expensive. Compared to usual Moog build quality, they skimped out a fair amount on the sequencer pots, which was disappointing.
