The kick pad on my DTXpress II stopped working, and I have no idea how to troubleshoot (and am not eager to take it apart). I bought a new (used) one, and that doesn't work either. Thanks for any help!


First try connecting one of your other pads to the one for the kick. See if you can trigger the kick sound from it. IF you CANNOT, then there is a problem with that input OR the setting in the box.

These devices are NOT magic. They typically use a piezo disc sensor similar to those in some musical Christmas cards.(note that some of those now use small speakers.

the piezo discs can be caused to vibrate if an AC signal is applied, or they can generate a voltage when compressed.

IF the problem is in the kick trigger, you might as well CAREFULLY take it apart. You will probably find the disc is glued or was glued to the back of the rubber pad... The problem SHOULD be obvious as well as a solution... it will likely be broken gluing OR a broken wire... But do this ONLY if you veriify the problem is in the trigger and not the box input.

The trigger ONLY generate a voltage pulse of varying amplitude which then goes to the box which is where the sound is actually generated.

Window display not functioning


You need to use a transformer type voltage convertor.

DO NOT use the type for converting 220 down to 120 for hair driers.

The voltage should NOT be a problem as usually these will operate down to 100 volts. If the keyboard is sounding correctely, that would indicate there is NOT a problem with voltage.

It is LIKELY that the connections to the LCD were damaged in shipping. There are many, many connections to the glass assembly and if dislodged will have lines across the display.

Repairing this is usually not something one can do unless very experience in electronics.

Problems with DTXpress III special bass drum pad


If you are comfortable with working on it and the warrantee is up try taking the pad apart to see if the piezo element has come loose from its mounting or if the solder joint is loose. If that isn't the problem save your settings and initialize the set according to the instructions in your manual.

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:...

DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL changing cymbal(crash) sounds?


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.
