Could be cool. Definitely useful for people who have semi-modular systems or really small modular setups.

really nice, but lack of usb for clock within DAW makes it really a pain to use for those without an external clock, and want to record direct to DAW.....This is a problem for me for sure

send a short audio pulse to the clock input, it works great and it´s more accurate than midi

like everything Moog, I'm sure it'll sound great. Sorta big for what it does though. Moog is gonna sell a ton of these.

I like the obviously deliberate choice to feature female synthesists in the demo. It's like the current gen Star Wars stuff, plus ladies rock.

Oh my!!! It's here!! Wow!
It's funny how they label each beat that is presented here… Kind of looks like they gave these Djs the manual that I never received and then let them jam out… Cool.. but, umm I don't know… At least I can Download the manual now…sheesh..

[edit] Now that I look at the manual.. I see that they've changed three patch points! Now I have to get this one too… double sheesh…!! [/edit]

The patch you've created in your brain is more challenging to modify than the patch you have on your modular.

Looking forward to a more measured demo without all the hipster guff.

This looks so much more appealing than the mother 32.

Have to admit, wasn’t sure this was going to make it to production. Should fit nicely with the M32.
No midi at this price point tho does seem like they’ve limited the market for this one a bit.

Well, if you need MIDI you just get the Mother 32, right? I don't think every device needs MIDI. Sounds like a perfect marketing plan TBH.

What would peeps use MIDI for with this thing? If it's just sync, somebody already said that the clock input will work with an audio pulse.

A DFAM and two M32s would be a killer compact system. So happy this is seeing real production, and won't just be limited to a few handbuilt kits from Moogfest.

I'm so tempted. Don't need this, but damn do I want this.

Passed on the Mother 32, but just might suck this one into the euro rack.

In addition to its intended purpose, the twin oscillators (albeit with just square and triangle options) with FM/Sync and a nice Moog filter (which I'm currently lacking) could also turn this into a useful all purpose synth and sequencer when exploiting all those inputs for control from whatever adjacent modulation sources you may have in the form of ADSRs, LFOs etc.

You’re absolutely right, it is brilliant marketing. My only point was, at $679 USD I, as the consumer, would expect more I/O options not less. Also, from a manufacturer perspective I would think you’d want to entice a wider audience to the product, in line with the tone of their pitch with the M32.
Despite more products having clock and cv i/o many still don’t.

All that said, I have a M32 and love it. I expect the DFAM will also make it into my setup eventually.

The marketplace for under $700 analog drum machines seems to be getting more crowded than expected, and most of them have MIDI: Drumbrute, Bassbot's TT-78 and 606, Korg's Volcas, etc. We'll see what Malekko's asking price will be for Mr. D will be, if/when it finally hits the market.

Moog seems to be going for something different though - peeps who are more comfortable w/ Eurorack stuff, some of whom consider MIDI a four-letter word ;).

Nice to have all these choices...

Not necessarily true. Only if it were so.
