Along with its highly responsive drum trigger system, the DTXPRESS possess over 900 high quality drum voices and 128 different GM (General MIDI) keyboard voices all made with Yamaha's AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory) technology. (Maximum polyphony 32 notes.) The DTXPRESS also functions as a rhythm machine that provides a wide variety of rhythmic styles from which to choose. There is also an easy to use 2-track sequencer that lets you create your own original songs whenever you're inspired.
48 Preset Drum Kits
The over 900 drum and percussion voices are grouped in drum kit presets that cover styles like Jazz, Rock, Hip Hop, Latin and more. Original kits are easy to create and can be stored for quick access in the User Area's 32 memory locations.
You can edit the effect, volume and pitch of each voice to create your own original sounds. Drum kits stored in the user area can also be edited freely.
Precise trigger edit
Sensitivity and dynamic settings for each pad can be fine-tuned to your liking. This allows you to tailor the sound and response to fit your particular playing style.
Quick edits are possible with ZAP function
The 3 most often accessed edits; "Pad Sensitivity", "Volume" for individual pad voices and "Total EQ" are quickly accessed with a double-click of the appropriate key. This allows for quick edits and lets you concentrate on playing.
A total of 95 preset songs
The collection of 95 preset songs, covering a wide range of musical styles, provide an extensive song library from which to choose. To play along with any of the songs just mute the drum part and play. This function makes practice enjoyable and sharpens your skills immensely. Original songs can be created, stored in the 32 user memory allocations and
used in the same manner.
Pads put you in control
The pads can also act as switches that send commands for various functions. Hit a pad to start or stop playback of a sequencer. Use the Note Chase function to trigger a programmed fill or effect.
Connected to a MIDI device the DTXPRESS can be used as a MIDI tone generator for playing GM song data from a sequencer. Cancel the drum part, just as with preset songs, and play along in a "Virtual Session". Only the DTXPRESS provides you with this capability.
Live Rehearsal, Groove Check
Recording your own performance is quick and easy. After recording, replay your performance to check how well you did. If you want an impartial judgement, the Groove Check function will provide you with a report card on your timing accuracy and overall feel of the groove. Such feedback will be a positive influence in your training sessions.
