Congratulations!

Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha DD-50. The DD-50 has been developed to act and play like a drum set but with greater ease. Before you use the instru- ment, we recommend you to read through this manual.

Your DD-50 will give you years of playing pleasure if you follow the simple rules given below:

YAMAHA is not responsible for damage caused by improper handling or operation.

Taking Care of Your DD-50

Location Do not expose the instrument to the following

conditions to avoid deformation, discoloration, or more serious damage.

Direct sunlight (e.g. near a window). High temperatures (e.g. near a heat source,

outside, or in a car during the daytime). Excessive humidity. Excessive dust. Strong vibration.

Power Supply Turn the power switch OFF when the instru-

ment is not in use. An AC adaptor, if used (the DD-50 runs from

either batteries or an optional AC adaptor), should be unplugged from the AC outlet if the instrument is not to be used for an ex- tended period of time.

Unplug the AC adaptor during electric storms.

Avoid plugging the AC adaptor into the same AC outlet as appliances with high power consumption, such as electric heaters or ovens. Also avoid using multi-plug adaptors since these can result in reduced sound quality, operation errors, and possibly dam- age.

Turn Power OFF When Making Connections

To avoid damage to the instrument and other devices to which it is connected, turn the power switches of all related devices OFF prior to connecting or disconnecting cables.

Handling and Transport Never apply excessive force to the controls,

connectors or other parts of the instrument.

Always unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly, not by pulling on the cable.

Disconnect all cables before moving the instrument.

Physical shocks caused by dropping, bump- ing, or placing heavy objects on the instru- ment can result in scratches and more serious damage.

Cleaning Clean the cabinet and panel with a dry soft

cloth. A slightly damp cloth may be used to remove

stubborn grime and dirt. Never use cleaners such as alcohol or thinner. Avoid placing vinyl objects on top of the

instrument (vinyl can stick to and discolor the surface).

Electrical Interference This instrument contains digital circuitry and

may cause interference if placed too close to radio or television receivers. If this occurs, move the instrument further away from the affected equipment.

Data Backup Custom data and some settings (see page 21)

will be retained in memory even if the power switch is turned OFF as long as an AC power adaptor is connected or batteries are installed.

Service and Modification The DD-50 contains no user serviceable parts.

Opening it or tampering with it in anyway can lead to irreparable damage and possibly electric shock. Refer all servicing to qualified YAMAHA personnel.

Power Supply

Your DD-50 will run either from batteries or an optional power adaptor. Follow the instructions below according to the power source you intend to use.

Setting up the DD-50

Using an AC-Adaptor (sold separately) Installing Batteries

Connect the optional power adaptor (Yamaha PA-3 or PA-3B) to the DC IN 10-12V jack located on the units left side panel, and plug the AC power adaptor into an AC power outlet.

3 Close the battery compartment cover securely.

1 Open the battery compartment cover on the underside of the DD-50.

2 Insert six C size, R14, SUM-2 or equivalent batteries. When inserting the batteries, be careful to follow the polarity markings in the illustration.

Do not attempt to use an AC adaptor other than the PA-3 or PA-3B. Use of an incompatible adaptor may result in the instrument becoming hot or, irreparable damage to the DD-50. It may also result in fire. If the instrument is damaged due to use of an incompatible adaptor, YAMAHA is not responsible for the damage.

When Using Headphones (About the PHONES/AUX OUT Jack)

An optional set of stereo headphones (such as the Yamaha HPE-150 or HPE-3) can be connected to the PHONES/AUX OUT jack located on the side panel. When a pair of headphones is con- nected to the jack, the DD-50s internal speakers will switch off automatically, perfect for private practice or late night playing. If you want to use an external sound system, the headphone jack can also be used to connect the DD-50 to a stereo system or mixing console. (Use a standard plug n pin plug adaptor to connect the DD-50 to a stereo system.)

* Turn the power OFF on all equipment before making any connections.

Power will be automatically drawn from the AC adaptor if an optional AC adaptor is connected while batteries are installed in the instrument.

It is recommended that you replace worn batteries as soon as possible. When battery voltage drops, the DD-50s display will dim and/or the sound will become distorted. When this occurs, replace the batteries with a complete set of six new batteries of the same type.

NEVER mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (alkaline, magnesium, etc.), batteries by different makers, or batteries from the same maker but of different types. Misuse may cause the instrument to become hot, result in fire, or battery leakage.

Also, to prevent damage due to battery leakage, remove all of the batteries from the instrument when it is not to be used for an extended period of time. Batteries left in an unused instrument will also loose their power over time.

Using the MIDI/Utility Mode The MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals, located on the DD-50s right side panel, offer broad- ened musical possibilities through use of MIDI. But, what is MIDI? What can you do with MIDI? How can you use MIDI with the DD-50? Here are a few examples.

What you can do with MIDI

What is MIDI?

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. MIDI is a world wide standard that makes it possible for various electronic musical instruments and other devices, such as computers, to communicate with each other. For example, by connecting a MIDI tone generator to the DD-50s MIDI OUT terminal, you can play the tone generators voices from the DD-50s pads and pedals.

The DD-50 is equipped with two types of MIDI terminals, both are located on the right side panel.

MIDI IN Data transmitted from other MIDI instruments via MIDI, is re- ceived at this terminal.

MIDI OUT Data produced by the DD-50, is transmitted to other MIDI instru- ments via MIDI from this terminal.

Use a MIDI cable (option), obtainable at your local music dealer, when making MIDI connections.

Never use MIDI cables longer than 15 meters in length. (Cables longer than 15 meters can pick up noise which can cause data errors.)

Connect the DD-50s MIDI OUT jack to a MIDI keyboards (or tone generators) MIDI IN jack. This setup allows you to use the DD-50s pads to control another MIDI instrument. Playing the DD-50s pads will result in the other MIDI instruments voice sounding simultaneously, creating a thicker overall sound.

Connect the DD-50s MIDI OUT jack to a MIDI sequenc- ers MIDI IN terminal. Data produced by the DD-50 (Key ON and Velocity data) can be recorded to a MIDI sequencer. Data can also be recorded to com- puters or other sequencers as well.

Connect the DD-50s MIDI IN terminal to a MIDI key- boards MIDI OUT terminal. In this setup the DD-50 can be used as a tone generator and its voices can be played from a MIDI keyboard. Using a keyboard as a controller, it is possible to play DD-50 voices that are not assigned to the pads/pedals.

Connect the DD-50s MIDI IN terminal to a MIDI sequenc- ers MIDI OUT terminal. The sequencers data can be used to drive the DD-50s sounds.

Enter/Exit the MIDI/Utility Mode

To enter the MIDI mode, press the [START/STOP] and [DEMO] buttons simultaneously, an mm will appear in the display to indicate the MIDI mode.

Setting the Clock

Connecting the DD-50, by MIDI cable, to an external MIDI device, such as a sequencer, time based functions (song playback, etc.) must be controlled by the internal clock (I) or an external clock (E). When the internal clock (I) is enabled, timing will be controlled by the DD-50s internal clock. When an external clock (E) selected, time based functions will be controlled by the sequencers or compu- ters clock.

1 Display the clock setting

After entering the MIDI/Utility mode, press the [DRUM 1] button to see the current setting for the MIDI clock.

2 Set the Clock to External or Internal

To set the clock to E (external), turn the DIAL to the right (clock- wise). To set the clock to I (internal), turn the DIAL to the left (counter- clockwise).

Local ON/OFF

Setting the Local ON/OFF determines whether or not the internal voices respond to the notes you play on the DD-50s pads. Setting this to OFF disconnects the DD-50s pads from the voices. How- ever, data produced by the DD-50 is transmitted via the MIDI OUT terminal.

In many cases, problems or malfunctions that occur during use can be remedied easily. Please check the following list before deciding that your DD-50 is damaged. If the suggested remedy is ineffective, take the DD-50 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.

Troubleshooting

Problem Cause/Solution

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 17).

A buzz or click occurs momentarily when the DD-50 is turned ON or OFF

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

Cr 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 21).

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 8).

The batteries are low and should be replaced with a complete set of six new batteries. Or, an optional AC adaptor (PA-3 or PA-3B) should be used to power the DD-50 (see page 3).

The custom pad voice assignments have disap- peared or defaulted.

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

Striking a pad results in other pads also sounding, though they were not struck.

Refer to Adjusting the Pads Sensitivity to resolve the problem (see page 30).

The batteries are low and should be replaced with a complete set of six new batteries immediately. Or, the optional AC adaptor PA-3 or PA-3B should be used to power the DD-50 (see page 3).

The LED display is completely dark. When the pads are struck, the display is dark and returns to 00.

No sound comes from the speakers.

The volume is set too low. Adjust the volume (see page 6).

A plug is inserted into the PHONES/AUX. OUT jack and should be taken out (see page 3).

The LOCAL ON/OFF is set to OFF. Set the LOCAL ON/OFF to ON (see page 18).

You are in the MIDI/Utility mode. Exit the MIDI/ Utility mode (see page 17).

Adjusting the Pads Sensitivity

The factory default setting for pad sensitivity should provide you with trouble-free use. However, it is possible to

adjust the pads sensitivity (0-3, factory default = 2) 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 3. When two pads are simultaneously struck with this setting, both pads will sound

together. However, if you strike the pads with too much force, the voice of a pad that is not struck may also

sound.

Striking a pad results in other pads also sounding, though they were not struck.

Set the pad sensitivity level to 1. 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.

By setting the pad sensitivity level to 0, pads that are not struck will be even harder to sound.

Setting Procedure

1Press the [START/STOP] and [DEMO] buttons simultaneously, mm will appear in the display.

2Press the large [SONG VOLUME] button to enter the pad sensitivity mode.

The currently selected pad sensitivity setting will appear in the display.

3Turn the DIAL to set the pad sensitivity level (0-3).

4Once again, press the [START/STOP] and [DEMO] buttons simultaneously to exit the pad sensitivity mode and complete the setting procedure.

Standardeinstellung = 2) hher oder niedriger einstellen.

Beim gleichzeitigen Anschlagen von zwei Pads erzeugt eines keinen Ton.

Stellen Sie die Pad-Empfindlichkeit auf 3 ein. Wenn Sie bei dieser Einstellung zwei Pads anschlagen, erzeugen

beide Ton. Bei zu starkem Anschlagen kann es jedoch vorkommen, das auch andere Pads mitschwingen.

Beim Anschlagen eines Pads erzeugen andere Pads Ton, obwohl sie nicht berhrt wurden.

Stellen Sie die Pad-Empfindlichkeit auf 1 ein. Bei dieser Einstellung reagieren die Pads weniger empfindlich.

Wenn jedoch zwei Pads gleichzeitig mit zu wenig Kraft angeschlagen werden, klingt eines davon unter Umstnden nicht.

Wenn die Pad-Empfindlichkeit auf 0 eingestellt wird, schwingen andere Pads nur bei extremer Anschlagstrke mit.

The pad sensitivity setting is retained in memory, even if the power is switched off, as long as batteries are installed or the power adaptor is connected to an AC outlet. If batteries are not installed and the power adaptor is not connected to an AC outlet, the sensitivity setting will return to its factory default setting (2).

Die Pad-Empfindlichkeitseinstellung bleibt auch beim Ausschalten des Instruments gespeichert, solange Batterien eingelegt sind oder ein Netzadapter angeschlossen ist.
