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.

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.

In some pictures for the Yamaha DTXpress IV Special, the hit-hat has this trigger system under it and other pictures don't.What is it?


I see pictures that show an extra device beneath the Hi-Hat and the ads mention a "stereo hi-hat controller"... on the RHH130 there is a clutch to improve the feel of the Hi Hat... I think this is what you see in some ads.

Cut and paste:

This hi-hat pad design attaches to a standard hi-hat stand. Inside of the pad is a sensor system and built-in hi-hat clutch that feels,realistic when pressed. The RHH130 also features a dual zone design consisting of pad and edge sections that offer greater dynamic realism. The pad can also produce a foot splash.

I have an electric triggered bass drum pad, and it will not trigger the sound through the machine unless I practically slam the pad the model is a KP65 bass drum pad, on a yahmaha DTXpressIV


Test the pad driving a different sound... If the pad is weak, the sensor probably came loose in it... They are a piezo disc usually like in older musical cards.

Some of the triggers have an adjustment pot that is very tender... ALSO there usually is a setting in the machine for sensitivity.

If this has just gone bad, it is likely the sensor came loose... repairable if one opens the pad...

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.

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:...

My Bass Drum trigger just stopped working .


this is an easy problem to fix. The piezo piece on the inside of your bass drum trigger uses a double sided tape that is fixed to a metal disc. the piezo trigger just fell off. mine did the same thing. I actually glued mine with epoxy and have not looked back.

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.
