Hi,
the right crash is a '3 zone pad' (notice the semi-circular groove around the front edge of the pad).

this means you should get a different sound from the bell, the main area of the pad, and the front edge.

In order to mimic a real crash cymbal, the 'crash' sound comes from hitting the edge of the pad.

In reality, there are ribbon switches (like mobile phone keypads) underneath the bell & edge areas of the pad that detect hits to these areas.

If i hit the ride bell, the tom 3 sound will come out also if i hit the crash bell, the tom 1 sound will come out also any idea how to fix it? many thanks


Is the 9ch snake cable correctly connected? TOM 3 should be plugged into the 4th input and TOM 1 should be plugged into the 2nd input. (1- SNARE, 2 -TOM, 3 -TOM, 4-TOM, 5-RIDE, 6-CRASH.........)

WHEN I STRIKE THE BASS DRUM, THE CRASH CYMBAL SOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME....EVEN WHEN NO CYMBAL IS CONNECTED TO THE INPUT JACK.


If you leave an input open they MAY cross couple... try plugging a set of headphones into the cymbal input jack... this will ground the cymbal input... then see if you still get the cymbal sound... IF you STILL get the sound, then the multiplexor that scans the input has a problem and you need to take it for repair. Repair on the surface mount boards is not a DIY without proper tools and skills. If the grounding stops the cross coupling, then you MAY have a problem with the cymbal or its cable.

Sampling into yamaha dtxpress iv


If you have a sampler, you could midi out of the DTX brain into the midi in of the sampler to trigger the sounds. If not ,try downloading KORE2 from Native Instruments onto your computer and triggering it using the above mentioned method . Midi out from your brain to Midi in on your computer. Hope this helps.

One of my cymbals just stop working, i've unplugged it from the cymbal, turned the amp off and on, restarted the system and nothing seems to be working. I did unplug it from the "brain" i believe, (i just...


Try these:

- change the interconnection cable between the cymbal and the "brain" unit, if the problem goes away, you have a bad cable.

- if the problem persists, see if that particular cymbal works well on another input of the "brain" unit, if it does, you have a problem with the input on the "brain unit", this will require servicing if the unit still has a warranty, otherwise you should first check the solder contacts on the input that doesn't work (also check for dirt /oxydation on the plug contacts and clean if necessary).

- If that particular cymbal won't work when you plug it into any "brain" cymbal inputs (it's basically a piezo trigger so it should work on other inputs), then you have either a broken wire on the piezo trigger or on the cable connector in that cymbal (it should be possible to resolder), or the piezo trigger itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what troubles your drum kit.

Where to connect 3rd cymbal cable end to drum machine


well i am not sure what r u talking about,but as i met the same problem,i assume that you mean you lack one cable...What you should do is:
1.Connect the cable to the cymbal.Then connect it the ending of the cable with bass drum(not with the device)
2.Connect the bass drum with the device,as there will be 2 cables in the bass drum.Then plug it into the device & you will be ok.

I want to connect my YAMAHA DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL to my PC


Any pro-audio interface with a midi input would do the trick. There are numerous products out there that offer this. You can get a simple usb midi interface, and connect the Yamaha up with a midi cable running from the midi out of the drum module to the nidi in of the interface.

one of the simpler ones:...
