Double check and make sure all the chords are plugged into the control box for your set. Most electronic drum sets require the use of headphones or some sort of PA system to hear whats being played. If you could expand a bit on the description of your problem, I should be able to help more.

Drum kit won't power up


Get a voltmeter and check the power to see if it is working at the plug. the voltage should be 12vdc. If you don't have a meter, just take the power adaptor to radio shack, or any electronics supply house.
They'll check it for you. below is a copy of the manual. Good Luck!

When hitting one drum, other drums are triggered... how do I fix that??


Usually there is a sensitivity parameter. Reduce the trigger sensitivity in the module. Refger to your user manual under "sensitivity".

Is a dtxplorer bought in the USA set for 110 volts and therefore do you need to get a converter to use it in a 220/240 volt country?


Yes, the adapter takes 120 volts... Best way might be to get a 220 to 110 trnasformer converter then you can run other stuff as well... Get one of the step down transformers in first column... the 100 watt one would be more than adequate, but for future things you might want higher rating.

I'm trying to use the pads of my Yamaha DTXplorer drum kit as triggers for the sounds stored on my Alesis SR-18 drum machine. I have seen that Alesis markets a trigger module of their own which they...


Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.

You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.

There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.

In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.

essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

I just bought the DTXplorer e-kit, and have set it up perfectly, but get no sound from hitting anything.


Test the amplifier with another sound source to make sure the amp is good. Use a guitar or anything to test.

Dtxplorer volume knob problems


No one "glues" knobs on except inapt consumers. Make sure there is not a "set screw" in the side of it. If not, it just pulls off.
