A free Ableton pack made from recording the Moog Drummer From Another Mother – AKA the DFAM.
The DFAM is a semi-modular synth from the Mother 32 synth family. It’s a wild little beast, so I thought it would be cool to record its ‘presets’ and make an Ableton instrument rack out of them.
The DFAM’s presets come as a fancy patching card that is placed over the synth to guide your knob & patch cable placement. The toms I recorded here are from the ‘Tribal Drums’ patch. There are only a few of them, but they pack punch.
These are perfect if you’re after a dirty analog-sounding kick or tom. I recorded the Moog Mother 32 dry, chopped up the audio to samples, and put them into a drum rack – no compression or EQ has been added.
I’ve also included a loop. This is part of the DFAM preset when the sequencer is activated. I slightly compressed this with the Arousor compressor and gated the loop to thicken and clean it up. I have also included a saturated version of the loop to show how well these Toms respond to saturation and distortion – so my advice is to lay it on 🙂
(I saturated it with the Fabfilter Saturn)
Why would I want that?
To add depth and subby tom / kicks to your productions. Perfect used solo – or layered onto other toms and kicks.
