The Drummer From Another Mother is a semi-modular analog percussion synthesizer for Eurorack modular systems. Despite its percussive leanings, the DFAM is anything but a traditional drum machine. In fact, it can be seen as an entirely new approach to the generation of percussive patterns.
With the DFAM, exploration and experimentation are privileged over traditional pattern creation. Consequently, it provides a plethora of sonic possibilities when it comes to creating and meaningfully manipulating rhythms.

Product Demo Videos
Moog DFAM Analog Drum Synth
We went to the Moog House Of Electornicus where we were able to try out the new DFAM (Drummer From Another Mother) and make this video. The first half of the video shows the DFAM being CV controlled and Triggered by a Malekko Voltage Block and Varigate 8+, in the second part we used the built in 8 step sequencer to sequence the DFAM. The sound from both videos is coming from only one DFAM.
Percussion & Synth Sounds From The Moog DFAM
Moog's DFAM or Drummer From Another Mother is an analog percussion focused synthesizer with a built in 8 step sequencer. The first part of this video shows some percussion sounds from the DFAM, and in the second half we used it as a synth voice, which it is capable of since it is a two oscillator synth with sync and FM as well as a noise generator.
Manther From Another Panther (DFAM + Manther)
We paired the Malekko Manther mono-synth with the Moog DFAM on drums for this video. Since both of these synths have built in sequencers you can create a jam by just synching the two together. The Manter has SH-101 style architecture with extra features like a tunable sub oscillator, wave-folder and built in delay effect. The DFAM has two oscillators as well as a noise generator and Moog ladder filter. The DFAM features percussive envelopes and interesting routing options to make many different drum and synth sounds.
