Yeah, the mix tapes (as mentioned) were a little over the top. Along with the shot of the Malcom X biography in the white persons $3,000+ a month apartment. We get it, Moog. You’re diversified.

As for the product.... *yawn*

You don't know what her rent is.

White people aren't supposed to read about Malcom X?

What is "over the top" about mixtapes? People find them at yard sales and thrift stores for $0.50. They're fun to have. Big deal. She's playing all over Europe in the next few months. What are you doing?

Like I said before, I enjoyed this video more than the vast majority of product announcements. There was a little bit too much preciousness for my tastes, but that is entirely because of the editing of the video, not because of the artists.

now tell me, how do I become a scooter boy?

Just saw the video, wow , its nice. A bit too expensive for me right now , but a really nice option to add to the Mother 32 tier system when I'm ready. Appreciated the girls in the video, at least they weren't wearing bikinis like in car shows. Down to earth looking with attention to nail pollish and nice wrist bands, just like me. I liked.

Great modding on this thread too, I was so happy to see what you guys did.

I have 3 Mothers and would be interested in adding one or two of these but the DFAM is $100 more than the Mother 32 here in Australia. It would be cheaper and more versatile to buy more M32s than the DFAM at this stage.

Its not their second eurorack module, but the first expansion to the mother ecosystem? Like they invented the format?

A bit overpriced compared to other such modules. Sounds are good tho and look is very pretty.

You need a few units or a sampler to build kits with it.
To my mind this it the kind of bit of kit you layer with a more standard drum machine to make something interesting happen.

compared to what though ?

if i bought 2 VCO's, Filter, ADSR and Sequencer in Eurorack modules as good quality as the Moog i'm thinking it would cost a lot more.

The manual is quite helpful, especially the bit at the back that shows some patching possibilities.

Moog is making less and less complex and costly (for them) gear and charging higher and higher prices. $700 for a single analog drum. Can’t call it a machine cause it has only one voice. I guess if you got too much money and time to waste...

In a years time when the dust settles and prices are more sensible i'll probably end up with one of these in my Rack, as i have a M-32 it would be rude not too

As i mentioned in another thread if you look at the Audio Damage ADM14 BOOMTSCHAK its a lovely module but retails in the UK for about £450/£500 or the Hexinverter Mutant Machine £530/£570 again lovely module , then if you compare the 3 together it makes the Moog price look a very reasonable offering, can i even say No-brainer ?

I dont want to dive into a comparison discussion at all. But there are other drum voices available that also cost less. And the sequencer is pretty basic as far as the video explained it.

Anyway, its not my intention to bash the product itself.

Some nice sounds. Judging from the video maybe not that versatile for a drum module, but a more in depth review, focusing more on sounds and possibilities than on the damsels so cool way of life and pets , would be needed to know more about that. Or best : personal hands on experience. I'm sure some more vids and sound example will appear, or can already be found. A bit pricey it's true, but it seems to do well what it is intended to do, and if built quality is high, why not ?

The EMW Analog Drum Synth is 170 quid.

I remember your comment about looking at Boomtschak and going for Drumbrute instead because it felt so unreasonable.
DFAM is 200.- Euro more than the Boomtschak still..

Hence my assessment its a bit steep priced.

Yeah, geez, I really cannot imagine someone or some group of people becoming obsessive about old audio technology. Man, imagine someone collecting old obsolete gear!! The nerve of these hipsters.

To me this unit is a breath of fresh air.

I personally am bored to death with drum machines and have recently moved into using synths like the MS20M as a one voice drum module. This unit is another step in that direction for me. Wonder if it will play nice with the sq1, I see no reason why not.

Looking forward to using this unit with my soon to be arriving Space Case TE-1 tape delay ... with a full CV implementation. Timing couldn't be better.

Ha! I was just thinking of the hoops she'd have to jump through these days to use pirated cassettes. Buy a CD/record player. Buy the music on CD/vinyl. Buy a cassette deck. Buy the blank tapes. Buy some phono leads. Record it all (in real time!). Copy out the track listing onto the inlay card. Buy a tape storage rack. What a hobby! I know we all did that in the past but flipping crikey she must be a glutton for punishment if she's done all that.

I hear you but I am more likely to expand my two Mother32s with a similar Moog product with same design as that’s a more cost efficient way to go. Sorta the same as the Volca series for Korg.

She probably just inherited the collection from somewhere. People still have tapes.

Yes, I hope so! Doing what I described these days would make what we obsess over look sane.

Yeah the video is in the same style as some of those Arturia ones that are designed to get you interested. No issues with that as there will be more qualified individuals to do the other videos showing the product in detail. The Mother32s have a ton of them.

DFAM comes with rack and power. 2 x OSC, plus noise, dual filter (lpf/hpf), loads of patch points in and out.

For me it's priced about right. Not a bargain, but definitely not over priced.
You can't really compare the DFAM package to a single (unracked, unpowered) Euro module.
