I get random unwanted midi notes triggering while I plug my dd-55 into my emu x-midi 2x2 with my Reaper DAW. I don't know if this is a problem with the emu or the dd-55 itself, but it doesn't...

Check that you don't have MIDI echo on in the DAW. If the MIDI data is echoed, it MAY be merging with the outgoing and when MIDI signals are merged in pieces instead of whole messages the data is corrupted. If you can look at the data stream with software, you should be able to spot the problem. Another problem might be excessive latency of the recording software. Make sure you do not have antivirus or antispyware programs running or network running. The Roland will spill data at much less rate and while the dd55 may overrun the DAW the Roland might not be able to. The key to the problem is to analyze the MIDI data stream that is being recorded.

Yamaha DD-65 pad 2 has lost its sensetivety, if i hit it really hard it works, but when tapping it lightly like i can with the other pads, it does not sound. I have only just bought it second hand so...

There is a setting to use that sets for using either sticks or by hands. If a single pad is thee problem, likely the sensor has come loose. Most of these use a piezo disc pickup and this may have separated from the pad. Open unit carefully and check for this visually. If separated, try to analyze what type adhesive was used. It is likely a contact cement. If so, clean surfaces of residue and use contact cement following the direction. Let dry overnight per the label on the cement. Be careful of the cables in the unit when opening. Keep track of which screws go where. They sometimes have different lengths and threads.

Make sure you have the ORIGINAL power adapter for this unit. It should say PA150 on it and provide 12 volts at 1.5 amps (1500ma). I am not sure of the polarity, but if the part number matches, you have the right one.

I Have a Yamaha dd55c electronic drum machine without the bass and Hi-Hat pedals. I am good with electronics and wondered how they are wired, or alternatively if they are available to buy from anywhere.

The pedals are domes with Piezo disc sensors. SImple two wire connection... the original pedals are really NOT very good... You might try to find regular pedals used for drum sets... they have a beater and sensor. They do cost a bunch.

The Bass Drum Pedal of our Yamaha DTXplorer electronic drum kit has come to pieces. There are springs and washers everywhere and I don't know how to fix it. The instruction manual doesn't tell me. If you...

Go to one of the suppliers. Most of them will have photos of the bass pedal assembly and if you can enlarge the photo, you should be able to figure how to assemble it.

Expect to find washers on shafts between things that rub.

Check on page 9 for example. While the photo isn't the greatest you can see where the spring is.

When i hit some of the pads, the system seems to reset and all the sounds are also reset, for example when i hit it with a bit of force, pleae help

I can only assume you have one of Yamaha's DD drum units as you did not mention the model or anything.

ASSUMING that, first check the condition of the power connection. If the vibration breaaks the connection that would cause your symptoms.
