It is easy and fun to tweak the preset kits and select new voices for the pads of any DTX900 series kit.  Whether you want to pick the individual voices for each trigger source of a multi-zone pad, or assign multiple voices to the whole input in one simple step, it's all starts in KIT mode.
The DTX900 series has an advanced groove check mode that can analyze up to five pads simultaneously so you can see how your different limbs tend to play against the steady pulse of the click.
Getting around the DTX900 is takes an understanding of the basic terms used in the screen.  This article will introduce you to the DTX900 and how to change voices in a kit, using the groove tools, and playing along with the preset songs.
