Mylar Melodies dedicates a deep dive video to the Moog DFAM analog Synthesizer and shows what makes it original and special.

The Moog DFAM aka Drummer from Another Mother, is a different kind of analog Synthesizer. It is designed for percussive sounds but its clever design makes basslines or drones also possible. For me, it has one of the most original concepts in analog synthesis in recent years.

YouTuber Mylar Melodies has published a DFAM video that gives you a musical deep dive with an overview of how to use it. Or in the words of MM, a love letter to the Moog DFAM.

Mylar Melodies, A Love Letter To The Moog DFAM

Here’s a demo video explaining the Moog DFAM and why I think one of the most original, interesting analogue synths to come out in years. In it I’ll explain how it works, jam a little, pairing it with a TR08, and Mother-32 at the end! Strangely I shot this video several years ago (March 2018 according to the files) but never got round to editing it at the time.

In the spirit of better late than never – here it is now. A lot has changed since then, but then a lot has not. It’s still a very original take on subtractive synthesis, and it can teach us a lot about approaches we can take on a modular synth too (think – sequencers controlling VCA’s that control envelopes that are used to modulate parameters). And it’s still fun as hell to jam on.

Moog DFAM is available now for 579€.
