(Simon) DTX502 Series Sat, 14 Dec 2019 12:00:26 +0000 Can't get any new kits or .wav files to transfer to my Yamaha DTX502 drum module. I don't know if it's my computer, the midi cable, or the drum module that's to blame or maybe I'm just doing something wrong.<br />
When I do the transfer, first I start my computer, then hook up the midi cable, then turn on the drum module.<br />
Then I open MusicSoft, load the kit that I downloaded from Yamaha's site into the temp directory, check the connection to ensure everything connected correctly, then I transfer the file to the drum module, then I close MusicSoft.<br />
<br />
To my knowledge, I'm doing everything correctly If I'm doing something wrong, please feel free to correct me.]]> (Zachary) DTX502 Series Thu, 19 Jul 2018 23:49:28 +0000

Tuning for additional toms. (Barry) DTX502 Series Sun, 01 Dec 2019 15:09:38 +0000 Is there any way to 3 PCY135 (three zone) cymbals with DTX502? <br />
I'm enjoying my DTX532K set which includes two PCY135 (three zone) cymbals: one for the ride, one for the crash. I wanted to add another cymbal to my setup and purchased another PCY135. I plugged it into the extra jack on the kick pad, but it is only a single zone pad.<br />
<br />
I guess that this is expected (after reading the documentation).<br />
<br />
Is there any other way to get a 3rd three zone cymbal to this system? I don't want to give up my hi-hat or snare. Does this mean that I'm out of luck?<br />
<br />
Thanks,<br />

How to setup DTX502 to a computer for recording? <br />
I have a USB cable which connects from the module to the computer. This seems to do absolutely nothing. If anyone can offer some advice about what sort of cables I need, or what other software I would need, that would be super helpful.<br />
<br />
Just assume that I am 100% completely clueless on this matter, and thanks in advance!]]> (THOMAS) DTX502 Series Wed, 20 Nov 2019 03:30:39 +0000

Other than support (e.g for a VH-10), should I expect a big difference in sample quality in the Roland TD-17? Is it a better idea to get some cheaper module and a VST instead? I assume it has some features etc but I mostly just care for sound quality and trigger config (for custom piezos).<br />

Cymbals cutting out when playing on drums <br />
I doubt this matters but I'm using the DTXpress IV special kit and replaced the drum pads with the Pearl Tru-Trac heads using my regular acoustic kit. Everything worked perfect with the other module. I think there's just some overlooked detail that is causing this problem. Any help would be appreciated.<br />

Yamaha DTX502 mongrel setup I had a DTXpress IV, but then bought the round cymbals, then a mesh snare & the DTX502 and setup Q1 is "what's your drum kit model number?" and it doesn't even list the DTXpress IV. What difference does this setup choice make, if all the pads <a href=""><span style="color:#333333">wa rego check</span></a> 'work', and any idea which of the kits I've not got I should choose?]]> (Penny) DTX502 Series Thu, 17 Oct 2019 19:53:07 +0000 Answer on "DTX562 KIT ADDICTIVE DRUMS 2 CONNECTING UP" <br />
Try to the following steps (assuming you have installed audio software and AD2):<br />
1. Connect dtx502 to PC.<br />
2. In System5 menu of dtx502 set "LocalCtrl=off".<br />
3. Install ASIO driver for your sound card (or ASIO4All driver). <a href=""></a>.<br />
4. Run your audio software (e.g. "Fruity Loops") and then select MIDI Settings menu.<br />
5. Activate (enable) input MIDI device.<br />
6. Select Audio Settings menu. Select (activate) your ASIO driver.<br />
7. Connect (enable) VST-plugin (AD2) in your audio software (e.g. Fruity Loops).<br />
8. Add new channel (AD2) in your project in order to open AD2 plugin window.<br />
9. Try play drums. If AD2 drum sound will not correspond dtx drum (e.g. cymbal sounds as snare or tom) you will need to set correct MIDI map for dtx502. See the table with MIDI notes numbers in "DTX502 reference manual".<br />
10. In order to set MIDI map in AD2 plugin do the following. In AD2 menu select ?->MapWindow (in top right corner). In the Map window set the most suitable drum map (Map Preset->Startup->Yamaha->YamahaDTXPRESS IV basic) then manually assign incorrect AD2 drum sound numbers to the proper dtx source. The MIDI number generated by any dtx trigger must be equal to AD2 sound number you want to hear. It is possible that you will need to set a proper MIDI map any time as you start AD2. Save your tuned drum map to file (Map Preset-> Save as) and load it when run AD2.]]> (Andrey) DTX502 Series Sat, 20 Feb 2016 18:01:46 +0000

hi-hat problem <br />

What's better on RHH135 than PCY100 when using it as a hihat? <br />
I got a DTX502K and it has PCY100 hi-hat on it. I found someone's selling RHH135 with its hihat stand and i'm not sure what's better on RHH135 than PCY100 when they are used as a hihat.<br />
