PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

Please keep this manual in a safe and handy place for future reference.

WARNING Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators. Also, do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, or place heavy objects on it.

Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.

Use the specified adaptor (page 64) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.

Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it.

Under no circumstances should any of the components of this product be taken apart or customized. Doing so could result in electric shock, fire, injury, or malfunction.

Do not sit or stand on the rack. Doing so could cause it to fall over or break, possibly causing injury.

Be careful with the holders for cymbal and tom pads as they have sharp tips. In order to avoid injury, therefore, you should take special care whenever handling these components.

Be careful with the anti-slip stoppers on kick pads and foot pedals as they have sharp tips. In order to avoid injury, therefore, you should take special care whenever handling these components.

Securely tighten fixing nuts and other fasteners. In addition, be sure to immediately tighten any nuts that have come loose. If this precaution is not observed, pads may fall off or the rack may collapse or fall over, possibly causing injury.

Take care when setting up cables. If anyone were to trip on a cable, the instrument could topple over and cause injury.

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or glasses) containing liquids which might spill into any openings. If any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.

When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then have the device inspected by Yamaha service personnel.

- The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged.

- It emits unusual smells or smoke.

- Some object has been dropped into the instrument.

- There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument.

CAUTION Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.

Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.

Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process. Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in damage to the instrument or even injury.

Do not place hands or feet under a foot switch or foot pedal. Doing so could result in injury.

Do not use the electronic drum kits rack to hold acoustic drums. Doing so could cause clamps to break and the drums to fall off, which in turn could lead to injury.

Mind your fingers when adjusting clamps. Fingers can easily be caught and crushed if care is not taken during this operation.

Be careful with the tips of supports, arms, screws, and the like. Fingers can easily be injured by sharp tips if these components are not handled carefully.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to prevent damage to the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.

When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Use only the stand/rack specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over.

Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.

Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.

Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel. This could cause physical injury to you or others, damage to the instrument or other property, or operational failure.

Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.

Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. Even when the [ ] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (power lamp is off), electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

NOTICE To avoid the possibility of malfunction/damage to the prod- uct, damage to data, or damage to other property, follow the notices below.

Handling and Maintenance Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio,

stereo equipment, mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio may generate noise.

Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibra- tions, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration, damage to the internal components or unstable operation. (Verified operating temperature range: 5 40C, or 41 104F.)

Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or key- board.

When cleaning the drum module, be sure to use a clean, dry cloth. Cleaning products that contain organic sol- vents, paint thinner, detergents, and chemically-treated cleaning cloths can cause discoloration and/or warping and should not be used.

When cleaning the pads, avoid cleaning products that contain organic solvents, paint thinner, and alcohol as they can cause discoloration and/or warping. Instead, we recommend that you remove dust using a soft dry cloth or wipe clean with a moist, tightly-wrung-out cloth. If a pad is very dirty, wipe the dirt away using a cloth moistened with a neutral detergent solution and tightly wrung out. Following this, wipe away the detergent solu- tion using a cloth soaked in water and tightly wrung out.

3-1. Local Control

The Local Control parameter determines whether or not the drum modules internal tone generator will produce sounds in response to playing of the pads or of songs. Normally, this parameter is set to On, meaning that pads and songs will generate sounds. When Off is selected, the tone gen- erator is essentially disconnected from the pads and songs, which will be unable to generate any sound. An Off set- ting can prove highly useful when you wish to record your drum performances as MIDI data on a sequencer or using DAW software.

1. While holding the [KIT] button, press the [SONG] but- ton to activate Menu Mode.

4-2. Splash Sensitivity

Using the following procedure, you can set the degree of sensitivity for detecting hi-hat foot splashes. The higher the value, the easier it will be to produce a foot-splash sound with the hi-hat controller. High values may, however, result in splash sounds being unintentionally produced when, for example, you operate the hi-hat controller lightly as you keep time. It is a good idea, therefore, to set this parameter to Off if you do not want to play foot splashes.

1. While holding the [KIT] button, press the [SONG] but- ton to activate Menu Mode.

DTX400K/DTX430K/DTX450K Owners Manual

While the drum module is highly powerful and versatile all by itself, you can connect it to a computer via USB for even greater convenience and flexibility. When connected in this way, MIDI data can be freely exchanged with the computer, allowing the drum module to be used as an input device for music production applications. In this section, youll learn how to make the necessary connections.

Supported operating systems: Windows XP, Service Pack 3 (32-bit); Windows

Vista (32-bit), and Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) Mac OS X 10.5 to 10.7

1. Turn off the drum module.

2. Start up your computer. Shut down all applications before proceeding to the next step.

3. Connect the USB cable first to the drum modules [USB TO HOST] terminal and then to the computer.

4. Turn on the drum module. You will now be able to exchange MIDI data between the drum module and computer.

Yamaha USB-MIDI driver In most situations, there is no need to install the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver and the above setup procedure will suf- fice. If, however, your computer is having difficulty com- municating with the drum module, please download the standard Yamaha USB-MIDI driver from the following web page and install it on your computer.

http://download.yamaha.com/

Precautions when using the [USB TO HOST] terminal

If proper care is not taken when connecting your drum mod- ule to a computer via the [USB TO HOST] terminal, either or both of the devices may freeze or data may become cor- rupted or be permanently lost. Be sure, therefore, to observe the following precautions at this time. If the drum module or computer should freeze, restart the application being used, reboot the computer, or turn the drum module off once and then back on.

(PDF). See page 57 for details on downloading this manual.

No sound is produced when a pad is struck, or the volume is lower than expected.

Check connections as follows. Ensure that the pads are properly connected to the drum modules trigger input jacks. Ensure that the drum module is properly connected to headphones or other audio equipment, such as an amplifier

and/or speakers. Ensure that the amplifier and/or speakers connected to the drum module are turned on and are not set to the low-

est possible volume. Ensure that the cables for the hi-hat controller and the kick unit are not connected to each others jacks. (DTX400K

only; see page 17.) If you are using a KP65 Kick Pad, try adjusting its Level dial. If you are using a KU100 Kick Unit, connect the hi-hat controller before turning on the drum module. Please do not

turn the drum module on with the hi-hat controller depressed. The drum module can not identify the type of pedal properly and it causes that the kick may produce much smaller sound than expected.

Check the drum modules settings as follows. Ensure that the drum modules volume is not turned fully down. (See page 19) Try adjusting the Pad Volume parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 42) Try adjusting the Gain parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 49) Try adjusting the Pad Velocity Curve parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 46) Try adjusting the Crosstalk parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 47) Ensure that the Snare Pad Type parameter from Menu Mode is set correctly. (See page 48) Ensure that the Pedal Types parameter from Menu Mode is set correctly. (See page 48) Ensure that the Local Control parameter from Menu Mode is set correctly. (See page 44)

If you cannot play foot closed hi-hat sounds, try the following. Ensure that you are operating the hi-hat controller in a firm and full manner. Ensure that the Double Bass Drum parameter from Menu Mode is set to Off. (See page 43) If you are using an HH65 Hi-hat Controller, set the Foot Close Position parameter from Menu Mode to a small

value. (See page 45)

Sounds or volumes are not as expected.

If hi-hat splash sounds are not produced as expected, try the following. Adjust the Splash Sensitivity parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 45)

If it is difficult to produce closed hi-hat sounds with an HH65 Hi-hat Controller, try the following. Adjust the Foot Close Position parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 45)

If it is difficult to produce louder and quieter foot-closed hi-hat sounds, try the following. Ensure that the Pedal Types parameter from Menu Mode is set correctly. (See page 48) If using the hi-hat controller that comes with the DTX400K, adjust the Foot Close Velocity parameter from Menu

Mode to an appropriate fixed level: This pedal does not support playing of louder and quieter foot-closed hi-hat sounds. (See page 45)

If pads are producing only sounds at very high volumes (i.e., high velocities), try the following. Adjust the sensitivity of the drum kit. (See page 23) Adjust the Gain parameter from Menu Mode. High settings will result in loud drum sounds. (See page 49) Adjust the Pad Velocity Curve parameter from Menu Mode. (See page 46) Ensure that you are using only the recommended Yamaha pads. (Products from other manufacturers can output

excessively large signals.)

If the volumes of drum sounds produced by the various pads are poorly balanced, proceed as follows. Adjust the Pad Volume parameter from Menu Mode for each pad. (See page 42) Ensure that the Stereo/Mono parameter from Menu Mode is set correctly. (See page 53)

If the drum modules volume is not well balanced with that of the device connected to the [AUX IN] jack (such as a portable music player), proceed as follows. Ensure that the volume of the connected device is set to a suitable level. (See page 19)

If the volume of your drumming is not well balanced with that of a drum-module song, proceed as follows. Adjust the song volume. (See page 25)

DTX400K/DTX430K/DTX450K Owners Manual

If you notice double triggering, crosstalk, or skipped sounds (as described below), proceed as follows.

Double triggeringi.e., multiple sounds are produced in response to a single strike: If the pad or drum trigger in question features a controller for adjusting output or sensitivity, turn it down. Ensure that the Gain parameter from Menu Mode is not set too high. (See page 49)

Crosstalki.e., a sound is produced by a pad other than the one that was struck: Adjust the Crosstalk parameter from Menu Mode to a suitable level for each affected pad. (See page 47)

Skipped soundsi.e., a pad does not produce a sound (usually during rolls or fills): Adjust the Crosstalk parameter from Menu Mode to a suitable level for each affected pad. (See page 47)
