How the Triggers Generate Sounds

5DTX-PRO Reference Manual

The word trigger refers to the trigger signals (information on the strength of the strike and the location in the pad it was struck) generated each time a pad is struck. The drum trigger modules play sounds when trigger signals are received via the trigger input jacks.

This section explains the relationship between the trigger input jacks, trigger inputs, and trigger input sources.

Trigger input jacks Trigger input jacks on the DTX-PRO include [qSNARE] through [!4]. By switching the input mode on the [!2KICK/!3] jack, [yTOM3/u] jack, [rTOM2/t] jack, and [wTOM1/e] jack, you can change between the trigger input and trigger input source. The [qSNARE] jack and the [!4] jack can be used for a single-piezo 3-zone pad or a multi-piezo 2-zone pad. (The setting is changed automat- ically when the PadType is selected.)

Trigger input sources Trigger input source is a trigger signal transmitted from each zone of a pad. When the DTX-PRO receives a trigger signal from a pad, they play the trigger input source.

How the Triggers Generate Sounds

6DTX-PRO Reference Manual

You can set the input mode for the [!2KICK/!3] jack, [yTOM3/u] jack, [rTOM2/t] jack and the [wTOM1/e] jack. Input modes avail- able include separate and paired.

separate With the separate setting, the trigger input jack is separated into two single inputs to be used with two Insts. For example, the trigger signal received by the [!3] jack is connected to the trigger input source Pad13. The KickRm sound is not produced.

paired With the paired setting, the trigger input jack is used with one Inst. For example, the trigger signal received by the [!3] jack is connected to the trigger input source KickRm. The Pad13 signal is not produced.

Trigger input sources that are not set to be played from the pads connected to the trigger input jacks can be played from the external MIDI device. Alternately, you can press the [F3] button on the screen for changing the Trigger input source to audition the trigger input source.

How the Triggers Generate Sounds

7DTX-PRO Reference Manual

You can assign an Inst or voice to each trigger input or trigger input source to play sounds.

Inst Inst refers to each of the percussion instruments (snare, tom, cymbal, and kick) used in a drum set for the kit. With the DTX-PRO, you can use a different inst on each trigger input.

Voice Voice refers to a sound that makes up an Inst. With the DTX-PRO, you can use a different voice on each trigger input source. For example, on an acoustic snare drum you can play a head shot sound, open rim shot sound, and a closed rim shot sound all from the same pad. Each one of these different sounds is called a voice, and the DTX-PRO has internal voices that include various percussion instruments, sound effects, electronic sounds, and more. In addition to the internal voices, you can import audio files and play them as user voices.

Four layers (A to D) are provided for each trigger input source. You can set a voice to each layer, making it possible to assign up to four differ- ent voices to each trigger input source. You can play all four voices simultaneously, or in sequential order. Also, you can set the velocity range to each layer so that you can play a different voice in response to the strength of each strike.

Example: Using a single-piezo 3-zone pad as Crash1:

You can use imported audio files when you select User from the Voice category. The file imported into the DTX-PRO is called a Wave. Before importing, these files are referred to as audio files.

How the Triggers Generate Sounds

8DTX-PRO Reference Manual

In addition to the internal voices, you can import audio files and play them as user voices. There are different ways of importing audio files.

Importing audio files to trigger inputs Import an audio file by specifying a pad. All input sources play the same wave.

Importing audio files to trigger input sources Import an audio file by specifying an input source. Each input source plays a different wave. You can also specify the desired layer: A, B, C, or D.

Importing audio files to click timings You can assign the audio files you like for click timings such as accents and quarter notes.

With these operations covered above, the waves are automatically assigned to an empty user voice, creating a user voice that produces sound. The user voice can be used for other kits and user click sets.

You can import up to 10 audio files into each user voice. However, multiple waves cannot be played simultaneously. Set the velocity range to each wave so that you can play a different wave in response to the strength of each strike.

If the velocity range overlaps for multiple waves, the wave with the lower number will be played.

Generally, the user voice stops after being played once. To repeat playing the user voice, set MENU/Kit Edit Voice/VoiceHoldMode to on. With this setting, the wave starts or stops playing each time the pad is struck.

When auditioning sounds with the [ ] button on the MENU/Job/UserVoice/VoiceEdit screen, only one-shot play is possible and the sound is played at a fixed speed. Audio files imported at a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz will be played at their original pitch. No effects will be applied. By assigning a user voice to the kit, you can change the playback speed, apply effects or play sounds by striking the pad.

1DTX-PRO Reference Manual

KIT MODIFIER is comprised of three blocks (Ambience, Comp, and Effect), and the amount of effects on these blocks can be adjusted with the corresponding knobs.

Ambience There are two types of Ambience effects as shown below.

RealAmbi This is the acoustical characteristics recorded in an actual studio setting. Note that this is not available for some Inst sounds. The depth can be set for each Inst.

Ambi This is a reverb effect added through digital processing. The Ambi Type and the depth can be set for each Inst.

The curve settings for the [AMBIENCE] knob determines how the overall depth for RealAmbi and for Ambi are controlled. You can increase the amount of RealAmbi first and then increase the amount of Ambi later. When using an Inst that does not support RealAmbi, select the curve in which Ambi becomes effective from the start.

Comp Comp is applied to the entire sound of your performance.

Effect This is comprised of the following three blocks.

MFX (Master Effect) This block is for the effects applied to the entire sound of your performance. The type and the depth of the effect can be set.

FX1 (Effect 1) This block is for the effects applied to each Inst by setting the send level. You can use the [EFFECT] knob to adjust the overall send level.

FX2 (Effect 2) This is an additional block that acts in the same way as FX1. You can set the effect type and the send level, separately from the settings for FX1.

Effects applied to each kit

Inst Effect These effects can be set to each Inst (or pad). The following four effects are connected in series.

EQ This is a three-band EQ that allows different gain, frequency, and other settings to be made for each band.

Transient Adjusts the attack and release.

Comp Finely adjusts the comp settings.

Insertion The same effect types as those of MFX can be used. Note however that these effects cannot be applied to Pad3, Pad5, Pad7, or Pad13.

Master EQ This is a five-band EQ that adjusts the sound of your performance and the tone of training songs. Note that this effect is not applied to sounds from the auxiliary input or click sounds.

Phones EQ This is a four-band EQ that adjusts the tone of the headphones sound.

Pad Type

What is a Pad Type? In order to ensure that you get the best sound from each and every pad, we have prepared a full range of optimized trigger parameters (i.e., var- ious values related to pad input signals and the like), and named them accordingly. These groupings of parameters are referred to as pad types. Given that pads come in many different varieties, such as kicks, snares, toms, cymbals, and drum triggers, it follows that pad character- istics vary widely. The DTX-PRO comes preloaded with pad types for each different set of characteristics, allowing you to use them to their maximum potential.

Gain 1127 Sets the gain (amplification) of the input signal for when hitting the pad selected in Pad Type.

With a high setting, all input signals above a certain level will be amplified to the same level (i.e., the maxi- mum level). This means that variation in the softness or hardness with which the pad is struck can be smoothed out. Meanwhile, when a low setting is used, the softness or hardness of playing will be reflected to a much greater degree in the output trigger signal, allowing for more expressive performances.

Sensitivity 113 Sets sensitivity for when the pad is stuck lightly.

Using a value that is too low may result in no sound when struck too lightly or when playing a fast roll. Using a value that is too large may result in crosstalk. If you must make an adjustment, try to do so in a way that does not hinder your performances.

MENU/Trigger/Pad Type/RejectTime TRIGGER/SETTING/Pad Type/RejectTime

RejectTime 4ms500ms Trigger signals that occur within the time set here are regarded as double triggers and will not produce any sound. Larger values increase the amount of time that no sound is produced.

In the following case, a sound is output with the sec- ond input even though it occurs within the reject time.

When Trigger Level of the second strike within the RejectTime is at least twice as strong as that of the first.

MinLevel 099 These parameters set the range of Trigger Input signals that convert to velocity values from mini- mum (%) to maximum (%). Trigger signals that are below the minimum level set here will not produce any sound. Meanwhile, the Trigger signals above the maximum level will be set as a Maximum Velocity, as explained in MinVelocity / MaxVelocity shown below.

WaitTime 164 (msec) Sets the time until the target pad detects a trig- ger signal. Adjust the setting so that the trigger signal is detected at its peak and that the strength for striking the pad corresponds to the volume of the sound produced.

RimGain 1127 Sets the rim gain level of a multi-piezo pad con- nected to a multi-piezo supported jack. When using a mono 2 input jack, this parame- ter is effective only in the paired input mode.

H/R Balance H49H1, 0, R1R49 Sets the balance between the head and rim of a multi piezo pad. If the head sound is produced when the rim is struck, increase the R value to make the rim sound louder.

Crosstalk The term crosstalk refers to the output of trigger signals from an electronic drum pad (including an acoustic drum with a drum trigger attached) other than the one that was struck as a result of vibrations or interference between pads. Crosstalk is prevented by suppressing any trigger signal sound that is lower than the specified value.

Screen Parameter Settings Description

All Reject Lvl 099 Resolves crosstalk between the pad that is dis- played at the upper right of the screen and all other pads. While higher values are better at preventing crosstalk, they can also make it diffi- cult to play other sounds at the same time.

Resolves crosstalk between the pad that is dis- played at the upper right of the screen and other individual pads. For example, in a case where the Snare mistakenly produces a sound when the Kick is struck, hit the snare pad and set Snare to be displayed in the upper right of the screen, move the cursor to 12 (Kick), and then raise the Reject Lvl. While higher values are better at preventing crosstalk, they can also make it more difficult to play other pads at the same time.

When the Input Mode is set to paired, Pad3, Pad5, Pad7, or Pad13 will not be set as a Source Pad even when the Level is set.

MIDI LocalCtrl off, on Enables (on) or disables (off) the internal tone generator when performing with pads. This is normally set to on. When set to off, the trigger input section and tone generator section are discon- nected within the DTX-PRO, so no sound is produced when the pads are struck. However, regardless of this setting, per- formance information on the DTX-PRO is transmitted as MIDI data, and MIDI mes- sages received from external devices are processed by the DTX-PRO. An off setting is useful when you want to record your drum performance as MIDI data to a sequencer or DAW software.

6DTX-PRO Reference Manual

A knowledge of terms is required to understand the functions and operations of the Menu/File section. This section explains the terminology used in the MENU/File section.

File The term file is used to define a set of data saved on a USB flash drive. Data exchanged between the DTX-PRO and a USB flash drive is carried out in the form of files.

File name The name given to the file is called a file name. Files names are important for distinguishing files, and the same file name cannot be used in the same directory. While computers can handle long names, and even include non-English characters, the DTX-PRO can only use alphanumeric characters.

Extensions The period + three letters, such as .wav at the end of the file name, is referred to as a file extension. The extension indicates the type of file. Files that the DTX-PRO uses have a .bin extension, which is not displayed on the DTX-PRO screen.

File size This refers to the size of the file. The file size is determined by the amount of data saved in the file. File size is measured in units indicated with a B (byte). Large files and also the memory capacity of devices are represented using units of KB (kilobytes), MB (megabytes), and GB (gigabytes). 1KB=1024B, 1MB=1024KB, and 1GB=1024MB.

Format Initializing the USB flash drive is known as formatting. Formatting a USB flash drive using the DTX-PRO will erase all files and direc- tories (folders).

Save, load Save refers to the writing of data to a USB flash drive, while load refers to the reading of files from a USB flash drive.

The DTX-PRO can handle a maximum of 1,000 .wav files, and 1,000 .bin files.

Troubleshooting

Symptom Possible cause Solution

No sound

Out of balance

No sound The cable is not prop- erly connected

Ensure that the DTX-PRO is properly connected to headphones or an external audio system, such as an amplifier and/ or speakers.

Ensure that the cables you are using are in good condition.

Pad settings have not been properly config- ured

Turn the PadFunction setting in MENU/Utility/Pad off.

Trigger settings are improper

Check the Pad Type parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. Check the Velocity Curve parameter from MENU/Trigger/Curve,

and the Gain parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. Ensure that the Minimum Level parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad

Type has not been set too high, as this can prevent sound from being output.

Check the settings in MENU/Trigger/Input Mode.

Filter and decay set- tings have not been properly configured

If using filters, re-adjust your VoiceFilter settings as they often pre- vent sound from being output.

Check the VoiceFilter and VoiceDecay settings in MENU/Kit Edit/ Voice.

MIDI settings have not been properly config- ured

Ensure that the MessageType parameter from MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modifier/Voice is set to note.

When the MessageType parameter from MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modi- fier/Voice is set to note, the sound will not play if the Voice Num- ber parameter from MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modifier/Voice is set to no assign.

Ensure that the VelLo parameter from MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modifier/ Voice/MessageType is not set too high. Pads will produce sound only when struck harder than the value set here.

Ensure that the TrgVel parameter from MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modifier/ Voice/MessageType is not set too low. Low trigger velocities result in low output volumes.

Ensure that the MIDI LocalCtrl parameter from MENU/Utility/Gen- eral is set to on.

The volume or level settings are improper

The headphone vol- ume is not turned up

The metronome vol- ume is not turned up

Check the following: Volume controllers on amplifiers and/or speakers connected to the

DTX-PRO. MENU/Kit Edit/Volume The trigger output level of any pads with a dial allowing this to be

adjusted. The [MASTER VOLUME] knob on the DTX-PRO front panel. The sliders on the MIXER screen. Volume for the metronome (Click). ([CLICK VOLUME] knob)

Poor volume balance Poor volume balance between each of the pads

Ensure that the sliders on the MIXER screen have been set appropri- ately.

Poor volume balance between the external audio device and the DTX-PRO

Individually adjust the output volumes of the DTX-PRO and the external audio devices.

Adjust settings in MENU/Utility/Input Output/AUX In Gain. Adjust the volume with the [AUDIO VOLUME] knob.

Poor EQ balance Poor EQ balance Adjust the Phones EQ and the Master EQ.

Pads with position sensing do not pro- duce sounds properly

Ensure that the Pad Type parameter has been set correctly. Check the orientation of the cymbal pad. When this is not set prop-

erly, the cymbal pad may not be fully functional. Make sure to connect the pad to the proper jack that supports posi-

tion sensing.

Headphone volume is too low

Kick volume is too low in headphones

Adjust the values in MENU/Utility/Output Gain. Adjust the PhonesEQ. Use high quality headphones.

101DTX-PRO Reference Manual

Troubleshooting

Having difficulties during perfo- mance

Cymbal/Hi-hat sounds are too soft

The DTX-PRO pro- duces sound but the sensitivity (i.e., vol- ume) is too low.

Orientation of the cymbal pad is incor- rect

Shaft on the Hi-hat pad is loose

Extra felt is attached

The pad type or trig- ger parameter setting is incorrect

Slider is set to the minimum

The level settings for the pad are improper

The cymbal edge switch has not been detected

Check the orientation of the cymbal pad. If this is set improperly, the cymbal pad may not be fully functional.

The shaft on the hi-hat stand may come loose during use and cause the hi-hat pad to rotate. If this happens, the pad may not function properly. To avoid the problem, we recommend that you tighten the shaft and check the position of the hi-hat pad on a regular basis.

Putting extra felt under the cymbal pad may result in lower volume. Ensure that the Pad Type and trigger parameters are set correctly. Is

the pad type shown by the Pad Type parameter in MENU/Trigger/ Pad Type correct? (Select the proper pad type for the cymbal pad connected to the DTX-PRO.)

The trigger output level of any pads with a dial allow this to be adjusted.

Ensure that slider on the MIXER screen for the pad for which a sound is not being produced is set high enough.

Ensure that the drumstick is parallel to the pad surface when strik- ing the pad. The edge sensor switch on the cymbal pad may not react properly when the pad is struck completely from the side.

Double triggers are being produced

Ensure that trigger setups have been configured correctly. If the pad or drum trigger in question features a controller for adjust-

ing output or sensitivity, turn it down. Ensure that the Gain parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type is

not set too high.

Sound is produced without striking the pad Sound is pro- duced by a pad that was not struck (Crosstalk is occur- ring)

Ensure that trigger setups have been configured correctly. Set the Reject Lvl parameter from the MENU/Trigger/Crosstalk to

an appropriate level. If using a separately-sold pad featuring a level adjuster, ensure that

the level has been set appropriately. Ensure that the Minimum Level parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad

Type has been set appropriately.

Only one Inst is played when two pads are struck simultaneously

Ensure that trigger setups have been configured correctly. From MENU/Trigger/Pad Type/Pad Type, select the pad that is not

producing sound, and raise the value of its Gain parameter. From MENU/Trigger/Pad Type/Pad Type, select the pad that is not

producing sound, and lower the value of its MinLevel parameter.

Sounds are skipped during rolls and flams

Reduce the Reject Time parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type/ Pad Type.

Cannot choke

Cannot mute

Check the Pad Type parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. Check the orientation of the cymbal pad.

If the orientation of the pad is set improperly, the cymbal pad may not function fully.

Foot closed hi-hat sounds cannot be played

It is difficult to pro- duce closed hi-hat sounds

Shaft on the Hi-hat pad is loose

Extra felt is attached

The level settings for the pad are improper

Make sure that you are fully and firmly operating the hi-hat controller or the hi-hat pedal.

Lower the setting of the FootClosePos parameter in MENU/Utility/ Pad.

Is the pad type shown by the Pad Type parameter in MENU/Trig- ger/Pad Type?

Ensure that hi-hat pad or the hi-hat controller is correctly connected to the [CONTROL] jack of the DTX-PRO.

Putting extra felt under the cymbal pad may result in lower volume. Ensure that slider on the MIXER screen for the pad for which a

sound is not being produced is set high enough.

Symptom Possible cause Solution

102DTX-PRO Reference Manual

Troubleshooting

Hi-hat splash sounds are not produced as intended

Adjust the FootSplashSens parameter from MENU/Utility/Pad. Hi- hat splash sounds will not be produced if off has been set here.

Pads with position sensing do not pro- duce sounds properly

Check the Pad Type parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. Check the orientation of the cymbal pad. When this is not set prop-

erly, the cymbal pad may not be fully functional. Make sure to connect the pad to the proper jack that supports posi-

tion sensing. Select an Inst or a voice that is compatible with position sensing.

For more information, refer to the Data List (PDF).

Reliable trigger sig- nals cannot be pro- duced (when using a drum trigger attached to an acoustic drum)

Check the Pad Type parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. Ensure that the Gain parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type is

not set too high. Ensure that you are using only the recommended Yamaha drum

triggers (trigger sensors) or pads. Products from other manufactur- ers can output excessively large signals, which in turn can result in double triggering.

Ensure that the heads are not vibrating in an irregular manner, and mute them if so required.

Ensure that drum triggers have been installed properly. Increase the Reject Time parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type.

Avoid setting too large a reject time, as this can make it impossible to accurately detect flams, rolls, and the like.

The longer the bass drum sound, the easier it is to cause double triggers. Adjust the drum so that it produces a shorter sound. Try muting/tuning the head/changing the head.

Pads are only pro- ducing sounds at very high volumes (i.e., high velocities)

Ensure that the Gain parameter from MENU/Trigger/Pad Type is not set too high.

Adjust the Velocity Curve parameter from MENU/Trigger/Curve. Check the TrgVel setting in MENU/Kit Edit/Kit Modifier/Voice/Mes-

sageType. For example, if this parameter is set to 127, the maxi- mum velocity will be produced even when the pad is struck lightly.

Ensure that you are using only the recommended Yamaha pads. Products from other manufacturers can output excessively large sig- nals.

Pads produce unintended sounds

Ensure that trigger setups have been configured correctly. If an external MIDI device played from the DTX-PRO does not pro-

duce the expected sounds, review its voice settings for the MIDI channel on which the DTX-PRO is sending data, and ensure that they are appropriate for the MIDI data being sent.

Voices assigned to layers B, C, or D may cause unintended sounds. In some cases where unexpected sounds are produced when you

have connected a two or three-zone pad to any of the [wTOM1/e], [rTOM2/t], [yTOM3/u], [!2KICK/!3], [qSNARE] or [!4] jacks. If so, with Pad 3, Pad 5, Pad 7 or Pad 13, set the Pad Type parame- ter to off in MENU/Trigger/Pad Type. With Pad 1 or Pad 14, select the proper pad type in MENU/Trigger/Pad Type.

Check the crosstalk setting, min level setting and sensitivity setting.

Sounds are distorted Ensure that effects have been set appropriately. Sound can be dis- torted with certain combinations of effect type and parameter set- tings.

Ensure that the VoiceFilter parameter in MENU/Kit Edit/Voice is configured properly. Depending on the VoiceQ settings (filter reso- nance), distortion can be caused.

Lower the DTX-PROs master volume.

Sounds play end- lessly and do not stop

Ensure that the hold function is not turned on. Press [EXIT] while on the kit screen (top screen) to stop the KIT sounds.
