The Instant Gratification Beat Maker
Isam, 25.05.2020
I am a keyboard player with a background in metal, experimental and drone music. Sound quality and personality is the thing I care the most about. I have no previous experience with modular.

The DFAM will not allow you to create complex and nuanced beats: the eight step sequencer means that you'll get two bars worth of drum rhythm, so bear that in mind. However, in my experience, once I find a nice sound (which is all the time, both by accident and by design) those 8 percussion hits end up being be so full of character, versatility, punch, and delicious moog-y fatness that I find myself jamming for several minutes before I ever consider twisting a knob in search for a new beat.

Plug this thing to a delay pedal or VST (warning, you must have a Control Voltage converter) and you'll find yourself swimming in an ocean of infinite drum kicks and polyrhythmic white noise.

If you, like me, enjoy sound design and have an aversion to navigating menus (finding some sort of visceral pleasure in the tactile act of tweaking frequencies by twisting knobs): this thing is for you.

Will you "click"
Roport, 29.09.2020
It's a unique machine, and there for, very tempting to buy.
Some will "click" with it and use it often while others will use it every now and then. Problem is, you can't know for sure until you have it.
As such, I wouldn't give it priority unless you have your main setup stable and going.

not really a drum machine, but a lot more.
nesmeured, 27.06.2018
I guess you all heard from the countless youtube videos but the DFAM is not really a drum machine. Its a lot more. Yes, it can make some big kick drums and wicked bleepy percussions but there is so much more it can add to your setup. I love the weird melodic sequences and beefy bass sounds it can make. Got clean loud audio signal with practically zero noise and it really shines when connected up to other euroack modules. It sure is a great machine to play and tweak. I love that while a sequence is playing, if you listen carefully its not hard to tell that every repetition of the sequence is slightly different, this is a character you cant get from any digital or software sequencer.
However, the one downside to the DFAM is lack of MIDI.
Overall, the synth is a beast, so much punch and character.

Looks beautiful, sounds fantastic - that's a classy one beast, in a pure moogish fashion with a broad timbre spectre spreading from earth-shaking basses to psychodelic percussions.

Not really a drum machine but a lot more - even without patching you can get pretty interesting results with a synth structure like that - that's not a set of envelopes and oscillators you're used to, but it has very intuitive and hands-on interface though.

The one thing is missing for me is LFO but that can be easily patched into from some other module. Also the lack of MIDI synchronisation is the other con - CV sync is quite tricky in non-modular setup.

All in all it's a great little synth with it's own character and perfect build quality.
