Moog DFAM

Aside from the aforementioned over-use of the "mother" moniker for the series, this sounds fantastic. I didn't realize that it was only available as DIY before now. It's probably more than I want to spend on a drum machine, but still cool. Kinda wish they'd put the patch bay stuff at the top like the Grandmother, but that's not a big deal.

looks pretty cool. How's the sequencer? Can it do Poly rhythms?

No idea personally. Don't have one, but I'm looking for something drum related, and one I'm considering...

Looks cool, but no MIDI and an 8 step sequencer are pretty huge blows for me. Apparently you can get over that by just hooking it to a dirt cheap KORG SQ-1 though.

From what I read, it looks like you need to hook it up with different modular synths in order to get the most out of it, and is more like a synth with some percussive qualities than an actual drum machine too. All that said, I want one of these now. :fp:

I agree. The more I listen to it, the more I like it, but also the more I think I wouldn't buy it to be a drum machine. Rhythm synth, maybe. That's the problem with Moog's video: they sound gorgeous, but they're more like listening to a song/performance, than a demo.
