Moog, the company known for creating possibly the most famous synthesizer of all time, as today announced their latest creation, the Drummer From Another Mother drum synth. For those with sharp eyes, you'll have noticed the word Mother relates to their Mother 32 synth they released a couple years ago. The new semi-modular desktop unit follows the previous platform in form factor and size, as well as potential for expansion. This is certainly a surprising move from the company best known for their powerful mono synths.
DFAM is the first addition to the Mother ecosystem of electronic instruments and each DFAM includes a package of patch cables, inviting interconnectivity via the synthesizer’s 24-point modular patchbay. Create new sounds or bizarre behaviors, synchronize an unlimited number of DFAM and Mother-32 synthesizers together, or fully integrate this analog instrument into a modular Eurorack production environment.
On top of that, they enlisted the help of the Discwoman collective, to help showcase the power of the new synth. Check the DFAM in action in the video below.
Seeing as this is the first addition to the Mother series, and it's not hard to imagine that this could be a highly successful new line for the company, and we can't wait to see what's next. Expect full coverage of this at NAMM.
