Real sounds that drive the drummer
No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves – key to any drum sound along with the ambience of the place where they are played. The DTX-PRO has been fine-tuned to follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.
Intuitive functionality that stirs creativity
Kit Modifier condenses the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. A wide range of tonal possibilities are available, from the natural sound of acoustic drums through to live performance sounds carefully crafted by engineers.
• The AMBIENCE knob controls the reverberation of the drum sound; for an acoustic drum kit, up to 50% of the memory features the real ambience components of the recording studio, while 51-100% is high-quality digital reverb.
• The COMP and EFFECT knobs utilize the “1 knob” control technology featured in Yamaha PA products.
• COMP controls the compression effect and brings them to the front, while EFFECT controls effects that have been optimized for preset kits.
High-performance sound engine that recreates sound creation
The high-performance sound engine equipping the DTX-PRO leverages the technologies Yamaha has acquired over decades of making musical instruments of all kinds.
With authentic acoustic and live drum sounds, the same high-end effects found in professional-grade synthesizers and audio equipment, and effect control functions that let you recreate the techniques of elite drummers with a single knob, the sound engine in the DTX-PRO even recreates the process of creating sound in recording studios and live performance scenarios.
As a complement to this, Yamaha drum pads feature pad sensing technologies that respond with precise accuracy to the actions of the player, delivering the ultimate in expressive capability that is reflected in the sound.
