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:

Power supply/AC power adaptor 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 (PA-3C or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) 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. 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.

Do not open 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 immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Water warning 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. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

Fire warning Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall

over and cause a fire.

If you notice any abnormality 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, discon- nect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by quali- fied Yamaha service personnel.

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:

Power supply/AC power adaptor When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the

plug itself and not the cord. Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical

storms. 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.

Location 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 disfiguration or damage to the internal components.

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 gen- erate noise.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over. Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables. 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.

Connections 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 compo- nents at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while play- ing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

(3)-7

Maintenance When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,

solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.

Handling caution 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 uncomfortable

volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Backup battery This instrument has a built-in lithium backup battery. When you unplug the power

cord from the AC outlet, the internal data is retained. However, if the backup battery fully discharges, this data will be lost. When the backup battery is running low, the display indicates Battery Low. In this case, immediately memo the data settings, then have qualified Yamaha service personnel replace the backup battery.

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

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.

Even when the power switch is in the STANDBY position, 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 AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.

Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

The DTXPLORERs Main FeaturesMain Features

The DTXPLORER is equipped with a high-quality 32-polyphony tone generator that produces realistic voices, a high-performance metronome, and a variety of songs, all built into a compact design. The DTXPLORER is a versatile instrument that can be used in a variety of situations such as live performance, personal practice, and much more.

Drum Trigger Function Built into the unit are nine trigger input jacks and a hi-hat controller jack. Jacks that are compatible with rim

switch and 3-zone trigger equipped pads are also supplied. In addition to trigger pad compatibility, the unit can also be used with devices such as Yamahas DT20 Drum Triggers, etc.

Setup data such as pad trigger input type, sensitivity settings, etc., are stored in four preset patterns. This lets you simply choose the system that meets your playing needs. The unit also provides a pattern for user memory in which you can create and store your own custom settings for pads or drum triggers.

Also included in the unit are 32 preset drum kits. Acoustic drum kit types cover a range of genres from rock, funk, jazz, reggae, Latin percussion, etc. and are readily available for use. There are also 10 user memory kits in which you can freely mix, match and edit a variety of drum/percussion voices to create your own original drum kits.

Connections

Connecting the Power Supply A special power source adaptor supplies power to the DTXPLORER.

Make sure the power is switched OFF and connect the power adap- tor to the DC IN jack on the rear panel. To prevent the cord from becoming unplugged, wrap the cord around the cord hook and secure.

CAUTION Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3C AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha). The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the instrument. Also, when the DTXPLORER is not to be used for a long period of time, please unplug the power adaptor.

Before switching the power ON. To protect the speakers, headphones and the

DTXPLORER from damage, fully rotate the POWER/ VOL knob to the left (minimum volume) before switching the power ON.

Make sure the power is switched OFF on all exter- nal devices connected to the DTXPLORER. After the DTXPLORERs power is switched ON, switch the other devices power ON.

WARNING Make sure that the power adaptors cord is not bent at an acute angle when wrapping the cord onto the hook. Such a situation can result in a damaged power cord or fire.

AUX IN Jack (Stereo Mini Phone Jack)

You can connect the audio outputs from a CD player, or other ex- ternal audio source, to the AUX IN jack to mix the signal from the external source with the signal from the DTXPLORER. The com- bined audio can be sent on to an external device via the DTXPLORERs output jacks. This jack can be used when you want to play along with a favorite tune or perform with friends.

Use the volume control on the external device (CD player, etc.) to adjust the volume balance.

MIDI OUT Jack

The DTXPLORERs MIDI function lets you play voices on an external tone generator with the DTXPLORERs pads, or synchro- nize the DTXPLORERs song or metronome playback with the playback of an external sequencer.

About MIDI

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a world standard that provides a means to connect instruments and computers and allow them to transmit and receive performance and other data. This stan- dard allows computers and instruments of different makers and types to communicate.

Always use a standard MIDI cable when connecting de- vices. Also, use a MIDI cable that is not more than 15m in length. Using a longer cable may result in irregular opera- tion and other problems.

Adjusting the Hi-Hat

Hi-hat adjustment is used to determine the point at which the hi-hat closes when the hi-hat pedal (foot controller) is pressed. You can also set the ease at which foot splashes are pro- duced.

* This setting is only valid when a foot controller is connected to the HI HAT CONTROL jack. The setting has no effect on a foot controller connected to any other jack.

Procedure

1. Press the [SHIFT] + [SAVE/ENT] buttons to view the following page (page 1 in the Utility Mode). Use this display to adjust the hi-hat.

2. To set the point at which the hi-hat closes, flash the HHofs= value then use the jog dial to adjust the value. The setting has a range of 32 to 0 to +32. Smaller values produce a shallower closing point.

To set the ease at which foot splashes are produced, flash the T= value then use the jog dial to adjust the value. The setting has a range of 0 to 127. Larger values make foot splashes that are long and easier to pro- duce.

* Too high a value will makes foot splashes too easy to produce, resulting in the continuous production of foot splashes when the pedal is held down continuously.

Use the [<]/[>] buttons in this manner to select (the flashing cursor) the item you want to set. When the page only contains a single item, pressing the [<]/[>] buttons will select the next or previous page.

* The mark on the lower right side of the display indicates that a succeeding page exists. Likewise, the mark on the lower left side of the display indicates a previous page ex- ists.

Now use the Master Equalizer (2-band shelving type) setting to change the sound quality. The Lo= value is flashing. To increase low frequency em- phasis, rotate the jog dial to adjust the value (low frequency gain: +0dB to +12dB).

Similarly, press the [>] button to flash the Hi= value, then rotate the jog dial to adjust the high frequency gain (+0dB to +12dB).

You can also adjust or set the individual pad voices, vol- ume, tuning, reverb type/level, and other settings that fine- tune the DTXPLORER. (P. 20)

Trigger Setup Edit contains various settings related to trigger input signals received from the pads or trigger sensors that are connected to the Trigger Input jacks. It lets you make adjust- ments so that the DTXPLORER can better deal with these signals. If you are using a drum trigger other than those that came with the DTXPLORER set, it will be necessary to adjust the sensitivity or assign voices to the individual trigger inputs. This section also has settings that help prevent cross talk and double triggers.

Trigger Setup Edit

Selecting the Trigger Setup

The DTXPLORER includes four different preset types (No. 1 to 4) in the Trigger Setup. No. 1 contains data for a basic setup that uses the pads that came with the DTXPLORER connected to the units Trigger Input jacks as labeled on the rear panel (1SNARE, etc.).

Selects the Trigger Setup Type. (P. 24)

TRIG2 Type (Pad Type)

Sets the type of pad that is connected to the assigned input jack shown in the upper half of the display ([1 SNARE] in the example shown above).

* Values set in [TRIG3 Gain, MVl (Mininimum Velocity)] (P. 26) and [TRIG5 SelfRejTime (Self Rejection Time)] (P. 26) will auto- matically select the proper value for the pad type you set here.

Pad types are defined as follows.

*1 3-zone function (pad voice x1, rim voice x2) is available to a 3- zone compatible pad such as the TP65S, etc., if it is connected to the 1 SNARE input.

When connected to the 5 RIDE or 6 CRASH jacks, the rim will produce only one voice. For produc- ing closed rim shots, the [TP1/ SnrA] has a high sensitivity setting on rim 1, while the [TP1/SnrB] has a high sensitivity setting on rim 2. Left and right rim sensitivity is set at the same level for [TP1/Tom]. If the pad is connected to any other input, the rim voice will not be pro- duced and the pad will only produce one voice.

*3 When a stereo pad such as the TP80S is connected to the 1 SNARE input, [TP2-A] will produce the sound that is assigned to rim 1, and [TP2-B] will produce the sound assigned to rim 2. (Refer to P. 20)

*4 When an RHP series stereo pad is used, connect the pad to Input 8/9 and set the pad type in Input 8 to [RHP pad] and the pad type in Input 9 to [RHP rim].

*5 To use the BP80 as a stereo pad, connect the pad to Input 8/9.

TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)

Gain [Range] 0 to 99

Adjusts the input gain (sensitivity) for the input jack shown in the upper half of the display. Assigning a larger value lets a smaller input level from the pad create sound.

* This value will be automatically set after the appropriate pad type is set in [TRIG2 Pad (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the value will be necessary.

* Some pads are equipped with a sensitivity adjustment knob. Please refer to the Owners Manual that came with the pad for further information.

MVl [Range] 1 to 127

Sets the MIDI Velocity (volume) that is transmitted when the pad is hit the weakest. Large values will produce a high volume level even if the pad is hit softly. However, this will result in a narrow volume range making it difficult to adequately produce wider dy- namic levels. The trigger input level will be displayed as a % in the upper right hand corner of the display. The maximum velocity (input level 99%) will be 127. The level is low when the pad is hit the weakest so a wider dynamic range will be possible.

* This value will be automatically set after the appropriate pad type is set in [TRIG2 Pad (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the value will be necessary.

TRIG7 SPRej (Specified Rejection Level)

SPRej [Range] 0 to 9 from [Range] 1 to 9, 56

This setting is used to prevent cross talk between the input jack assigned in the upper half of the display and the input jack as- signed in the from= setting. After an event occurs from the pad that is assigned in the from= setting, the pad assigned in the upper half of the display will not sound for a certain length of time unless the input level is greater than the value set here. Larger values will require a greater input level in order to produce a trigger event. A from=56 setting assigns both trigger inputs 5 and 6.

TRIG8 Copy to Input (Trigger Setup Copy)

This function copies all data settings in pages [TRIG2 Type (Pad Type)] through [TRIG7 SPRej (Specified Rejection Level)] to an- other input jack.

CAUTION When the Trigger Setup Copy operation is carried out, the trigger setup data will be replaced with the settings of the copy source.

Procedure

1. Hit a pad to select the copy source (trigger input) from which the data will be copied. Rotate the jog dial and assign the copy destination (trig- ger input) to which the data will be copied.

2. Press the [SAVE/ENT] button. The following display ask- ing your confirmation to proceed with the copy operation.

Trouble Shooting The DTXPLORER does not produce sound, and does not recognize trigger inputs.

Is the pad or trigger sensor properly connected to the DTXPLORERs trigger input jack? ( P. 9) Is the volume knob on the rear panel turned down? ( P. 12) Is the input level displayed when the pad is hit? ( P. 25 [Trigger Setup Edit:TRIG2 to TRIG7 pages) Is the gain set too low? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]) Is the volume setting on the Drum Kits KIT 3 Volume page ( P. 21) set to 0? Is the cable you are using OK?

The external tone generator does not produce sound. Is the MIDI cable (connector) properly connected? Is the correct MIDI connector being used?

Produces sound but the sensitivity is too low (volume is low). Is the gain set too low? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]) Pads with output or sensitivity control volumes should be adjusted (increased). Is the minimum velocity set too low? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]) Is a proper velocity curve being used? ( P. 26 [TRIG4 VelCurve (Velocity Curve)]) Is the volume of the voice you want to use too low? ( P. 21 [KIT3 Volume)]

The trigger sound is not stable (for acoustic drums). Check the Produces sound but the sensitivity is too low (volume is low). list above. Is the proper pad type set? Select a larger pad type setting (DT snare DT hi tom DT lo tom DT kick 1

DT kick 2) ( P. 25 [TRIG2 Type (Pad Type)]) Is the DT20 properly attached with sticky tape? (Is there any old sticky tape remaining on the head?) Is the cable securely connected to the DT20 jack?

Double-triggers (when 2 sounds are played at the same time) are produced. Pads with output or sensitivity control volumes should be adjusted (lowered). Is the gain set too high? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]). Use the self-rejection. ( P. 26 [TRIG5 SelfRejTime (Self Rejection Time)]) (If you are using trigger sensors) Are you using trigger sensors made by a manufacturer other than Yamaha? Too

large a signal can produce double-triggers. Is the head causing irregular vibrations? It may be necessary to mute the head. Is the sensor attached close to the center of the head? Move the sensor closer to the rim. Is the sensor in contact with anything else?

29

Trouble Shooting

Cross-talk (mixed signals from different inputs) is produced. Is the gain set too high? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]) Try increasing the rejection parameter. However, a setting a value that is too high may cause the sound to be

muted when another drum is hit at the same time. ( P. 26 [TRIG6 Rejection (Rejection Level)]) If cross-talk is produced with a specific trigger input, try using specific rejection. ( P. 27 [TRIG7 SPRej (Specified

Rejection Level)]) Try placing the sensors (DT20, etc.) away from nearby drums.

When 2 pads (drums) are played only 1 sound is heard. Raise the gain setting of the pad (drum) that is not producing sound. ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum

Velocity)]) Lower the rejection setting of the pad that is not producing sound. ( P. 26 [TRIG6 Rejection (Rejection Level)]) Lower the specified rejection setting of the pad that is not producing sound. ( P. 27 [TRIG7 SPRej (Specified

Rejection Level)]) Are both pads set to the same alternate group? ( P. 22 [KIT10 AltGroup (Alternate Group)])

The sound is always loud. Is the minimum velocities minimum value set too high? ( P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)]) Are you using a proper velocity curve? ( P. 26 [TRIG4 VelCurve (Velocity Curve)]) Are you using a sensor made by a manufacturer other than Yamaha? Depending upon the manufacturer output

levels might be too large.

The DTXPLORER does not receive any switch or trigger signals. If you can access the Utility mode, do a factory reset. The DTXPLORER will reset to its factory settings. ( P. 23

[UTIL6 Factory Set]) Turn the POWER switch OFF then ON while holding the [<] and [>] buttons. The DTXPLORER will reset to its

factory settings.

The sound will not stop. Is the [KIT11 KeyOn/Off (MIDI Key On/OFF)] setting in the MIDI Key On/Off display set to norm? ( P. 22 )

When set to norm, some voices may sound continuously. Press the [DRUM KIT] button to temporarily stop the sound.

The Closed Hi-Hat voice is not produced. Is the proper pad type selected? If the RHH130 or RHH135 is used as a hi-hat controller, the pad type must be set

to RHH. ( P. 25 [TRIG2 Type (Pad Type)])

An optional 3-zone pad connected to the DTXPLORER does not produce sound when struck.

Only the 1 SNARE trigger input jack on the DTXPLORER has the capacity to produce separate sounds for each of the zones on a 3-zone pad. When connected to any other trigger input the pad can only produce sounds set for one or two of the zones. For example, an optional 2-zone RHH130/135 hi-hat pad cannot produce the edge sound when it is connected to the 7 HI-HAT trigger input, which is only compatible with a monaural pad. For more information, refer to the owners manual that came with the pad.

Pad controller functions do not operate properly or functions are not available when an optional pad with pad controller functions is connected to the main unit.

The DTXPLORER is not compatible with pad control functions.
