PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep these precautions in a safe 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, re or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immedi- ately and have it inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel.

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings.

If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the

power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel.

Use the specied adaptor (PA-5C or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instru- ment or overheating.

Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

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

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 place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord.

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

Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms.

Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, re, or bat- tery uid leakage.

Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline bat- teries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or dif- ferent types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, re, or battery uid leakage.

Do not dispose of batteries in re. Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged. When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long

time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery uid.

Keep batteries away from children. If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked uid. If the battery

uid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immedi- ately with water and consult a doctor. Battery uid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns.

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. Also, 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 expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, 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 disguration or damage to the inter- nal components.

Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televi- sions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can affect proper operation of the other products.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might acci- dentally fall over.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.

When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thin- ners, solvents, cleaning uids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths. Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard.

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 operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncom- fortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

DATA BACK-UP AND STORAGE Yamaha recommends that you regularly save data using an external device

such as the oppy disk-based Yamaha MIDI data ler MDF3, and storing the oppy disks in a safe, cool, dry place. YAMAHA CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCIDENTAL LOSS OF IMPORTANT MUSIC DATA! Regarding the data you have created, as long as fresh batteries are inserted in (or an AC power adaptor is connected to) the instrument, the data will be retained, even when the power is turned off. It will also be retained long enough to exchange an old set of batteries for a new set. If you have important data in the instrument which you dont want to lose, please take care to keep fresh batteries inserted in (or keep an AC power adaptor connected to) the instrument, and to regularly save data.

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.

* The illustrations and LED displays as shown in this owners manual are for instructional purposes only, and may be different from the ones on your instrument.

Drum Stick (x2) Foot Pedal 1 & 2 Owners Manual

Congratulations! Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha DD-55. The DD-55 has been developed to respond and play like a drum set - but with greater ease, exibility and sophisticated functions. Before you use the instrument, we recommend that you carefully read through this manual.

5

Setting Up

This section contains information about setting up your DD-55 for playing. Make sure to read this section carefully before using the instrument.

Although the DD-55 will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than bat- teries and does not deplete resources.

qMake sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the DD-55 is set to STANDBY.

wConnect the AC adaptor (PA-5C or other adaptor speci- cally recommended by Yamaha) to the power supply jack.

ePlug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.

Never interrupt the power supply (e.g. remove the batteries or unplug the AC adaptor) during any DD-55 record operation! Doing so can result in a loss of data.

Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-5C AC Power Adaptor (or other adap- tor specically recommended by Yamaha) to power your instrument from the AC mains. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the DD- 55.

Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the DD-55, or during electrical storms.

For battery operation the DD-55 requires six 1.5V C size, R14P (LR14) or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When the batteries need to be replaced, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this happens, turn the power off and replace the batteries, as described below.

qOpen the battery compartment cover located on the instru- ments bottom panel.

w Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings on the inside of the compartment.

eReplace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks rmly in place.

When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries.

Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the same time.

If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible uid leakage from the battery.

Plugging or unplugging the AC power adaptor while the batteries are installed will reset the DD-55 to the defaults.

Using a pair of headphones A standard pair of stereo headphones can be plugged in here for private practice or late-night playing. The internal stereo speaker system is automatically shut off when a pair of head phones is plugged into the PHONES/OUTPUT jack. Do not listen with the headphones at high volume for long peri- ods of time. Doing so may cause hearing loss.

Connect the DD-55 to external equipment only after turning off power for all devices. To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the external devices at the minimum setting before con- necting them. Failure to observe these cautions may result in elec- tric shock or equipment damage.

Since speakers are built into the DD-55, you should be careful to never leave any video tapes, cassette tapes, oppy disks or any kind of magnetic storage media on the panel doing so may result in data loss or dam- age to the items. Also avoid using the DD-55 near a televi- sion or computer monitor, since interference may result.

Using the Foot Pedals (1/2) When connected, these pedals can be used simul- taneously play the drum sets hi-hat pedal or bass drum voices or they can also be assigned to play other voices as well. Connect the supplied Pedal 1 to the PEDAL 1 jack @4 and Pedal 2 to the PEDAL 2 jack @1.

Make sure that the pedal plugs are properly con- nected to the PEDAL jacks before turning on the power.

Do not press Pedal 2 while turning the power on. Doing this changes the recognized polarity of the pedal, resulting in reversed pedal operation.

Avoid using the pedals directly on a soft oor, since they may scratch the surface of the oor.

Adjusting the Pads Sensitivity The factory default setting for pad sensitivity should provide you with trouble-free use. However, it is possi- ble to adjust the pads sensitivity (0 - 2, factory default = 1) if you are experiencing one of the problems shown below.

Striking two pads simultaneously results in one of the pads not sounding. Set the pad sensitivity level to 2. When two pads are simultaneously struck with this set-

ting, both pads will sound together. However, if you strike a pad with too much force, you may inadvertently trigger the sound of another pad.

Striking a pad results in other pads also sounding, though they were not struck. Set the pad sensitivity level to 0. With this setting, pads that are not struck will become

harder to sound. However, if you strike two pads simultaneously without enough force, one of the struck pads may not sound.

MIDI Functions

The MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals, located on the DD-55s right side panel, offer broadened musical possibilities through use of MIDI. What is MIDI? What can you do with MIDI? And how can you use MIDI with the DD-55? Here are some answers to those questions...

No doubt you have heard the terms acoustic instrument and digital instrument. In the world today, these are the two main categories of instruments. Lets consider an acoustic piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic instruments. With the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer inside hits some strings and plays a note. With the guitar, you directly pluck a string and the note sounds. But how does a digital instrument go about playing a note?

As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampling note (previously recorded note) stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit) is played based on information received from the pads and pedals. So then what is the information from the pads and pedals that becomes the basis for note production?

For example, lets say you play a C quarter note using the grand piano sound on the keyboard. Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out infor- mation from the keyboard such as with what voice, with which key, about how strong, when was it pressed and when was it released. Then each piece of information is changed into a number value and sent to the tone generator. Using these numbers as a basis, the tone generator plays the stored sampling note.

Whats MIDI?

MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and receiving compatible Note, Control Change, Program Change and various other types of MIDI data, or messages. The DD-55 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and various types of control- ler data. The DD-55 can be controlled by the incoming MIDI messages which automatically determine tone generator mode, select MIDI channels, voices and effects, change parameter values and of course play the voices specied for the various parts.

MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System messages.

Channel Messages The DD-55 is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 channels. This is usually expressed as it can play 16 instruments at the same time. Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of the 16 channels.

System Messages This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI system. System messages include mes- sages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each instrument manufacturer and Realtime Messages that control the MIDI device.

The messages transmitted/received by the DD-55 are shown in the MIDI Implementation Chart on page 41.

Message Name DD-55 Operation/Panel Setting

Note ON/OFF Messages which are generated when the pad or pedal is played. Each message includes a specic note number which corresponds to the pad which is struck, plus a velocity value based on how hard the pad is struck.

Program Change Voice setting (control change bank select MSB/LSB setting; only receive is available)

Control Change Voice setting (volume, pan pot, etc.; only receive is available)

Message Name DD-55 Operation/Panel Setting

Exclusive Message Reverb/Chorus/DSP settings, etc.

Realtime Messages Clock setting Start/stop operation

About MIDI terminals In order to exchange MIDI data between multiple devices, each device must be connected by a MIDI cable.

The DD-55 is equipped with two types of MIDI terminals, both of which are located on the right side panel.

MIDI IN ....................Data transmitted from other MIDI instruments via MIDI, is received at this terminal.

MIDI OUT ................Data produced by the DD-55, is transmitted to other MIDI instruments via MIDI from this terminal.

Never use MIDI cables longer than about 15 meters. Cables longer than this can pick up noise which can cause data errors.

MIDI Functions

23

The DD-55 also features side panel MIDI terminals (MIDI IN and MIDI OUT) as well as a compre- hensive set of MIDI functions, that let you use the instrument in a variety of recording and perfor- mance applications.

In all cases, make sure to properly set the MIDI Transmit Channels on the DD-55. Also make appro- priate settings on the connected instruments. (Refer to the relevant owners manuals for details.)

You can play the voices and sounds of the DD-55 from another MIDI instrument This setup allows you to control the DD-55 from a MIDI keyboard controller espe- cially one not having a tone generator. Connect the MIDI IN terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI OUT terminal on the other instrument.

You can play the voices and sounds of another MIDI instrument from the DD-55 In this setup, you can play another MIDI instrument or tone generator from the DD-55. For example, this lets you mix two different sounds together when you play a pad on the DD-55. Connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI IN terminal on the other instrument.

You can record your performance on the DD-55 to a connected sequencer or computer

Here, you can record all your playing, along with the DD-55s auto accompaniment, to a connected computer or sequencer. Naturally, you can use the sophisticated functions of the computer or sequencer to edit your data, and play it back using the sounds of the DD-55. The DD-55 also lets you play back up to 16 different channels letting you create complex recordings and compositions.

To set up, connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI IN terminal on the sequencer or computer (allowing you to record). Also, connect the MIDI IN termi- nal on the DD-55 to the MIDI OUT terminal on the sequencer or computer (allowing playback). You may need to set Local On/Off (page 26) to off, for best results.

When using a computer, special software (sequencer software) is needed.

Simultaneously press the [DEMO] and [START/STOP] button to enter the MIDI/Utility mode. An mm appears in the display indicating the MIDI/Utility mode.

When the DD-55 is connected via MIDI to another MIDI device such as a sequencer or rhythm machine you can have the two devices play back in perfect synchronization. To do this properly, you have to make sure that the time based functions (song playback, etc.) on each device are properly set, as to whether they are controlled by internal clock or external clock. When the internal clock (I) is enabled on the DD-55, timing will be controlled by the DD-55s internal clock. When external clock (E) selected, the DD-55 will synchronize to the external sequencers or computers clock.

I (Internal) ...............The DD-55s clock is used as the timing clock. E (External)...............The external clock is used as the timing clock (If the clock is set to

external without being connected to another MIDI device, the DD-55s Song Play or Demo functions will not operate.)

The Local ON/OFF setting determines whether or not the internal voices respond to the notes you play on the DD-55s pads. Setting this to OFF disconnects the DD-55s pads from the voices. How- ever, data produced by the DD-55 is transmitted via the MIDI OUT terminal.

on (Local ON) ..........The internal voices will be played and controlled by the DD-55 and its pads. Data received via MIDI will also be played by the DD-55.

oFF (Local OFF) .....Striking the pads will not produce any sound from the voices. However, the data will be transmitted through the MIDI OUT. However, data received via MIDI will be played by the DD-55.

Normally, this should be set to on since youll want to hear the sound of the DD-55 as you play it. However, for external sequencer applications, you may need to set this to oFF to avoid getting double notes, in which the sounds of the DD-55 are played twice once from the pads and once again by the pad data routed through the sequencer.

1 Display the Local On/Off Setting.

2 Set the Local On/Off.

3 Exit the MIDI/Utility mode.

Troubleshooting.......................................................................

In many cases, problems or malfunctions that occur during use can be remedied easily. Please check the following list before deciding that your DD-55 is damaged. If the suggested remedy is ineffective, take the DD-55 to an authorized Yamaha dealer for proper diagnosis and repair. Do not attempt to repair this digital instrument by yourself as serious damage may occur.

Problem Cause/Solution

A buzz or click occurs momentarily when the DD-55 is turned ON or OFF

This is a normal power surge noise that occurs when the POWER switch is operated.

The LED display is completely dark. When the pads are struck, the display is dark and returns to 000.

The batteries are low and should be replaced with a com- plete set of six new batteries immediately. Ideally, an optional AC adaptor PA-5C should be used to power the DD-55 (see page 5).The custom pad voice assignments have disap-

peared or defaulted.

No sound comes from the speakers. The volume is set too low. Adjust the volume (see page 8). A plug is inserted into the PHONES/OUTPUT jack and

should be taken out (see page 7). The LOCAL ON/OFF is set to OFF. Set the LOCAL ON/

OFF to ON (see page 26). You are in the MIDI/Utility mode. Exit the MIDI/Utility

mode (see page 25).

Striking two pads simultaneously results in one of the pads not sounding.

Refer to Adjusting the Pads Sensitivity to resolve the problem (see page 13).

Striking a pad results in other pads also sound- ing, though they were not struck.

The selected voice does not sound when the pad is struck.

The desired voice has not been assigned to the pad. Use the PAD ASSIGN function to program the desired voice to the appropriate pad (see page 11).

The song or Demo does not start playback. The MIDI clock has been set to E (external). Change the MIDI clock setting to I (internal) (see page 25).

C|r appears in the display when the POWER switch is turned ON, and backed up data has been erased.

Backed up data is initialized if batteries are not installed or AC adaptor is disconnected while the power is turned off (see page 31).
