Congratulations on your purchase of DTXPRESS IV STANDARD w/2 extra PCY135. This guide will help you setup the additional trigger pads for optimum performance.
Once you have played the stock kits in the DTXPRESS III for a while you’ll hear certain snare drums, kick drums, toms, etc. that you would like to combine into a personal kit. This “jump start” will walk you through the process of programming a kit combining your favorite voices.
This Jump Start contains a few tips to help make navigating on the module a bit easier by giving you a few shortcuts and how to set some of the functions up for your particular needs. The knobs are numbered 1-5, left to right.
The DXPIII module has an internal two-track sequencer with 95 pre-recorded (factory) songs that you can play along with, and 32 user songs where you can record your own performance. You can mute the drum tracks out of the factory songs and play along as a tool for learning to play different musical styles. This tutorial will teach you how to use the play-along and record features of the sequencer.
Once you have programmed a User Kit in the DTXIIS you will want to give it a name. You can name it for the song it will be used on or you can use it to reference a particular gig you will use it on. This “Jump Start” will show you how to name your User Kits.
The Groove Check function is a valuable learning tool. This tutorial will show you how to use Groove Check and offer some tips on getting the most out of it.The purpose of Groove Check is to show you by using positive and negative number where your beat placement is in relationship to the accompanying tempo you are playing to. Groove Check can be used either with the click or the internal sequencer.
