Question about Yamaha Dtxpress III Electronic Drum Set S-O System

Electronic snare drum pad picking up tom tom triger signal ?

I have an old set of UP drum pads that I hooked up to an Alesis D4 16 Bit drum module. Works fine for practicing but I am having a problem with my No 1 tom bleeding into my snare drum pad. Everytime I hit the snare drum pad with any force the No 1 tom bleeds through the snare. I had this problem once before and thought I solved it by mounting the No 1 tom on a separate stand thinking that vibration was the cause.I stopped having the problem for a long time but now its back again. I know the UP drum pads are 1970s technology but its just the one pad that I am having the problem with. I understand your Yamaha Techs but any of your suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, bsullivan02@comcast.net

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.

No pad sound


Not sure what module you're using this with, but I'm familiar with Roland electronic drum pads and modules, and guess the following would stand true for any pad / module combo....
I would check the following:

  1. Is the cable correctly connected at the pad?

  2. Is the cable correctly connected at the module?

  3. Is the module sound turned up?

  4. Are your headphones / speakers turned on & up
    (do other pads sound)?

  5. Is the fader for the specific pad (or pad group) turned up?
    (On a Roland module, where the pad is AUX1 to 4 - the 'fader' button needs to be pressed in order to operate the AUX slider).

    The next couple of things are less likely, but possible.

  6. Does the pad have a polarity switch on? - try switching it.

  7. Has he correct pad type been assigned in the module?

  8. Has an instrument been assigned to the pad
    (Roland: Press INSTRUMENT, hit the Pad, select a sound)

If you get no joy with this - please drop me a message.

Realize first that your "instant" is like eons to the electronics where billionths of a second count... This is an interesting set of symptoms. I would connect one of the other devices to one of the tom inputs and see if the snare acts the same using that devicee. Also try to characterize how much ahead or behind the snare hit the tom hit can occur and have both sound. This problem MAY be embedded in either the electronics or the firmware in the module. It could be an electrical noise issue or any of several other things. I want you to try this using ONLY headphones and NO amp... this is to isolate the possibility that the vibrations of the snare by the amp may be triggering anti-noise gate in the snare circuit. These are some more tests I want you to do the above and give me the results.

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.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

Have the alesis dm6 there is no out put sound. monitor appears to be working. hooked to small amp or headphones. just fuzz. please help. little guys christmas present!!!


Two things:

Check that cables are seated, especially the one at the main module.

Second, look for a setting for "Local Control" in your user's manual; That setting should be "On" to accept the triggers from the pads.
