Procedures for resetting your DTX module back to the factory settings and how to disable Auto-Power Off.
The [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack on the DTX400 can be set to output either mono or stereo sound depending on the monitor system to be used in conjunction with it. Let's talk about why this is important.
The term “crosstalk” refers to the mis-triggering of a pad other than the one that was stuck as a result of vibration or interference between pads. This creates a disconnect between the player and their performance, and can get annoying quick. Using the following procedure, you can adjust the Crosstalk parameter for individual pads to prevent this phenomenon from occurring.
Although the DTX400 is great-sounding out of the box, it offers users the ability to customize its Kits to best fit their playing style and dynamic. Editing the Pad/Trigger Volume is one of the ways users can make a Kit their own. 
The DTX400 module is a little powerhouse, and the built-in metronome is no exception. This video shows how easy it is to access the main features of the metronome in the DTX400.

The PCY90AT is a great add-on for a DTX450K (or any DTX Series Kit):

• It comes complete with cymbal pad, clamp, and cable.It plugs right into the aux input of the KP65 or KP125W Bass Drum Pad.

Players that use their DTX502 kit live appreciate the option of sending the Metronome or "Click" out to the PA independently of the Kit output for monitoring purposes, a task easily accomplished by the DTX502.
A new firmware update has just been released for the DTX700 module to update the instrument's compatibility with new triggers along with some enhancements in versatility.
Most electronic drum kits use a standard configuration: kick, snare, three toms, hi-hat, crash, and ride.  With Yamaha DTX drums there are many ways to upgrade and expand your kit, from adding an extra tom or cymbal, to increasing the size of a pad. 
The DTX790K is a kit configuration that uses the pad set and rack from the DTX900K with the DTX700 drum trigger module.  The DTX700 has preset trigger setups for the DTX700K and DTX750K.  To get the maximum expression from the DTX-PADS you should create a User Trigger Setup.

An easy option for adding samples to the DTX900/M is to load a pre-recorded sample such as a “loop” wave from a USB memory device. This article includes a video tutorial.
PLAY a Preset SONG:
Press the [SONG] mode button, then press [F1] [PLAY] to access the song play function page. With the Song number highlighted, use the jog-dial or INC/DEC buttons to select a PRESET Song 01-87.
Rhythm Gate lets you check the accuracy of your hit timing more finely and strictly when playing along to the CLICK or a SONG*. The sound is produced only when you hit at the correct (allowable) timing, which can be specified beforehand. *for details see the Click and Song quick starts
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.
A new firmware update has just been released for the DTX-MULTI12 to update the instrument's compatibility with new triggers along with some enhancements in versatility.
Did you know? You can make custom kits in the DTX-M12 Touch App WITHOUT being connected to the iPad!
Yamaha has a firmware update program that improves functionality of its digital instruments like the DTX-MULTI 12.  Yamaha further supports the MULTI 12 by providing extra content that adds new sounds and patterns to your instrument- all for free.
The musical expressitivity of DTX-MULTI 12 Electronic Drum pad can be expanded by adding foot pedals.  Whether it's a hi-hat controller for hi-hat open/close, a volume pedal to control your mix, or a footswitch for tapping-tempo off the dance floor - the DTX-MULTI 12 does all this and more.
Trigger your imagination - The DTX-MULTI 12 lets you import your own custom sounds and samples and assign them to a pad or trigger for live performance.  The memory is FLASH, so samples stay in the unit through a power-cycle, so they will be ready when you power-up at the gig.
Rhythm Gate is a variation of Groove Check1 in which sound is produced only if your hit is within the specified range, and sound is not produced if your hit is outside this range. This is cool because you don’t have to look at the display to know if you are on time. You will be able to hear (or not hear) if you hit the pad(s) within the range set by Rhythm Gate.
Without a doubt one of the most important skills for a drummer is timekeeping. The feature we call Groove Check is designed to help tighten up your timekeeping skills - one beat at a time. It works like a scale that measures how far ahead or behind the beat your hits are. You can measure hits from all inputs or focus Groove Check to analyze a specific pad input.
The ability to set the response of connected trigger pads for maximum performance is included in the DTXPRESS IV on the pages of TRIGGER setup mode. Let’s take a closer look…
The DTXPRESS IV has an internal collection of 63 preset songs for you to play along with. Songs 1-3 are DEMO songs – short musical compositions with a beginning, middle, and ending. Songs 4-44 are PRACTICE songs – Musical patterns in various styles that will LOOP. Songs 45-63 are PAD songs – song fragments that can be assigned to different pads.*
*Pad songs will be discussed in a future advanced guide.
Start by pressing the [DRUMKIT] mode button to see the [KIT1] page. Use the jog dial to select a drum kit that is similar to what you want to create (Kit #1 Oak Custom in this example).
