PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep this manual 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, 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, 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.

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 57) 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.

This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

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.

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

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables. 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.

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 power switch is in standby status, 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 product, 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

cables you use have plugs that match the input or out- put connectors on those devices.

Before making connections, furthermore, you should also turn the volume on the other devices fully down.

When all connections have been made, use each devices volume controller to balance its output with that of the DTX700.

Connecting the Adaptor

CAUTION Excessive bending can damage the power adap-

tors cord and create a fire hazard. Ensure, there- fore, that the power cord is not bent at an extreme angle when wrapped around the clip.

WARNING Use only the power adaptor that came with your

DTX700.

CAUTION The DTX700 remains charged and draws a small

amount of power even when the (Standby/On) button is set to the Standby position. For this rea- son, you should always unplug the power adaptor from the wall socket if the instrument will not be used for an extended period of time.

Playing Drum Pads

If using a three zone pad such as the XP100SD shown below, you will be able to produce three distinct sounds (i.e., head, open rim, closed rim) depending on where you hit it, much the same as if you were playing an acoustic snare.

Head shot Hitting the main surface of the pad produces a head shot sound.

Open rim shot Hitting the open-rim zone produces an open rim-shot sound.

Closed rim shot (Cross sticking) Hitting the closed-rim zone produces a closed rim-shot sound.

If using a two zone pad such as the RHH135 shown below, you will be able to play it in the same way as an acoustic hi-hat cym- bal.

Open/close In addition to the foot-close sound obtained by pressing the Hi-Hat Controller pedal, you can press the controller down even more firmly in the closed condition to produce a tighter closed hi-hat sound.

Bow shot Hitting the main surface of the pad (i.e., the bow section located between the cup and edge) produces a bow shot sound.

Edge shot Hitting the outside edge of the pad produces an edge shot sound.

Hi-hat splash Pressing the hi-hat controller pedal and then immediately releasing it produces a hi-hat splash sound.

Connecting Your DTX700 to a Computer

Although the DTX700 is exceptionally powerful and versatile all by itself, connecting it to a computer via USB allows for even greater convenience and flexibility. When connected in this way, MIDI data can be freely transferred between the drum trigger module and the computer, allowing the DTX700 to be used as an input device for computer-based music software. In this section, youll learn how to make the necessary connec- tions.

NOTE As the DTX700 has no built-in speakers, you will need to

connect headphones or an external amplifier and speakers

in order to hear it. For details, see page 13.

A USB cable is not included. In order to connect your

DTX700 to a computer, choose a USB A-B cable of no more

than 3 meters in length.

1 Using your computer, download the newest Yamaha USB-MIDI driver from the following web page. After you click Download, select a convenient location for the installation file.

http://dtxdrums.yamaha.com/downloads/

NOTE Information on system requirements is also provided on

the above web page.

The USB-MIDI driver may be revised and updated with-

out prior notice. Before installing, visit the above web

page to confirm the latest related information and ensure

that you have the most up-to-date version.

2 Install the USB MIDI driver on your computer. For instructions on installing, refer to the guide included with the driver installer. When asked to connect your Yamaha product and your computer, do so as shown below.

Precautions when using the [USB TO HOST] port If proper care is not taken when connecting your DTX700 to a computer via the [USB TO HOST] port, either or both of the devices may freeze or data may be corrupted or perma- nently lost. Be sure, therefore, to observe the following pre- cautions at this time. If your computer or DTX700 should freeze, restart the application being used, reboot the com- puter, or turn the drum trigger module off once and then back on.

NOTICE Use a USB A-B cable of no more than 3 meters in

length. Before connecting to your computer via the [USB TO

HOST] port, restore it from any power-saving mode (such as Suspend, Sleep, or Standby).

Connect the computer via the [USB TO HOST] port before turning on the DTX700.

Be sure to always perform the following steps before turning the DTX700 on or off and either plugging or unplugging the USB cable.

Quit all applications. Ensure that no data is being sent from the

DTX700. (Data is transmitted by striking the pads or playing patterns.)

Recording Performances using a DAW Application

[Definition] DAW Application DAW is an abbreviation of digital audio worksta-

tion. DAW applications such as Cubase can be

used to record, edit, and mix audio and MIDI

data on a computer.

The following section will describe how to connect your DTX700 to a computer and prepare for recording perfor- mances using a DAW application running on it. Normally, when playing in order to record on a computer, performance data produced by striking the pads is first sent to the com- puter and then returned to the instrument in order to play its internal tone generator. If local control of the DTX700 is turned on at this time, performance data will also be sent directly to the tone generator, and as a result, the direct and returned data will overlap, making it sound as if the pads are being struck twice.

Most DAW applications allow MIDI Thru to be turned on, and therefore, you can setup your system as shown below with local control of the DTX700 turned off and the DAW application returning performance data to the tone generator. In this way, performances can be recorded in comfort with- out each strike being heard twice.

We will now describe how to setup parameters for recording your performances, first on the DTX700, and then within the DAW application.

Preparing the DTX700 Using the following procedure, turn off DTX700 local con- trol.

1 Use [MENU] m [Utility] m [MIDI] to access the MIDI parameters, and set LocalCtrl to off.

2 Press the [STORE] button to store your new setting. With local control turned off in this way, performance data produced by striking the pads will not be sent to the internal tone generator.

Setting DAW-Application Parameters Within your DAW application, turn on MIDI Thru. This set- ting ensures that, when performance data is being recorded on a track within your application, it is also returned to the external MIDI system.

For example, lets assume that performance data is being recorded on Track 3 by your DAW application. In addition, well also assume that MIDI Channel 1 has been set for the return of performance data. If MIDI Thru is now turned on for Track 3, the DAW application will return the perfor- mance data to the DTX700 on MIDI Channel 1 as it is being recorded, and the instruments internal tone generator will sound as if it is being played directly.

NOTE For details on how to turn on MIDI Thru, refer to the man-

ual that came with your DAW application.

If local control on the DTX700 and MIDI Thru within your

DAW application are both turned off, no performance

data will be sent to the internal tone generator, either

directly or indirectly. As a result, no sound will be pro-

duced.

Playing the DTX700 using MIDI Data from a DAW Application As described below, you can setup your DTX700 to operate as a multi-timbral tone generator for your DAW application. In this way, you can easily integrate the instruments high- quality MIDI tone generator into your music-production setup. For details on how to connect the DTX700 to your computer, see page 52.

1 Set each of the tracks within your DAW appli- cation to output their MIDI data to the DTX700.

2 Play MIDI performance data using the DAW application.
