SOURCE: Electronic snare drum pad picking up tom tom triger signal ?

your right old and new technologies are all the same basic concept, a Piezoelectric transducer converts mechanical energy into an electrical pulse. Adjust/increase the cross talk (x-talk) setting on the module for your specific channel. this settings job is to disregard really small signals (ie. vibrations from the stand, other drums etc...), you may have to play the pad a little bit harder but it should work fine.

Providing it is plugged into the correct socket on the brain it is probably a broken cable. You could try using one of the other as a tempoary measure to check this if not then either the switching in the pedal has failed or a problem with the brain unit. Try cable & factory reset

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.

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.

My Yamaha electronic bass pedel is not working. If I unplug the connection to the computer and plug it back in I will hear only 1 sound of the base drum. Could the base pedel round pad which is hit by the...


There is a piezo sensor behind the pad typically. This can be dislodged or damaged. FIRST check your cables and try plugging the bass into another inout and see if it will trigger that sound. If not, you will need to repair the bass pedal.

SOME pedals have a sensitivity control which is a tiny pot accessable through a hole... this too is easily damaged if wrong type screwdriver is used to adjust it.

be sure and check for a broken cable, especially near the ends.

Weak LCD Display on a Yamaha DTX Electronic Drum Kit


NOT a battery issue.

Note that many of these devices have a parameter one can set for "contrast" or "viewing angle". You might want to check your owners manual for this possibility.

I downloaded the DTX manual and there IS a contrast control on the back of the unit near the top left facing the back...
IT MAY require a screwdriver to adjust it.

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.
