I need help my new dm10 mod comes up with calibration fail when I turn it on even with nothing plugged into it. I have updated the firmware it just wont talk to the kit at all


you have to make sure the red crash 1 is on the cymbal w the choke zone on it and plugged into crash one on the module. crash 2 goes in the cymbal w no choke and plugs into perc 2 on the module. also make sure the ride zones are plugged in to the corresponding zone on the module. bottom line double check all connections and reference the setup guide if u still have it. i had the same issue.

WHEN I STRIKE THE BASS DRUM, THE CRASH CYMBAL SOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME....EVEN WHEN NO CYMBAL IS CONNECTED TO THE INPUT JACK.


If you leave an input open they MAY cross couple... try plugging a set of headphones into the cymbal input jack... this will ground the cymbal input... then see if you still get the cymbal sound... IF you STILL get the sound, then the multiplexor that scans the input has a problem and you need to take it for repair. Repair on the surface mount boards is not a DIY without proper tools and skills. If the grounding stops the cross coupling, then you MAY have a problem with the cymbal or its cable.

The sound on all the stock kits I found to be too low. What I did was create a custom kit and altered the dynamics of all the pads and cymbals - once you're in the dynamics settings, just hit the pads/cymbals the hardest you normally would and save that setting!

It sounds like the sensor is bad in the unit... If you have only had it a few weeks, exercise your warraaanty for replacement. Repairing the piezo sensor is NOT really a DIY project.

When i strike the Bass Drum pedal, i sometimes get a cymbal noise also coming out of the kit. Its not the crash or ride cymbal i can hear, as when i look at the display, i can see a little bar to the right...


First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.

If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.

Try these:

- change the interconnection cable between the cymbal and the "brain" unit, if the problem goes away, you have a bad cable.

- if the problem persists, see if that particular cymbal works well on another input of the "brain" unit, if it does, you have a problem with the input on the "brain unit", this will require servicing if the unit still has a warranty, otherwise you should first check the solder contacts on the input that doesn't work (also check for dirt /oxydation on the plug contacts and clean if necessary).

- If that particular cymbal won't work when you plug it into any "brain" cymbal inputs (it's basically a piezo trigger so it should work on other inputs), then you have either a broken wire on the piezo trigger or on the cable connector in that cymbal (it should be possible to resolder), or the piezo trigger itself is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what troubles your drum kit.

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.
