Legendary Yamaha Sound Quality For All Your Drum Kits
The DTX500 drum trigger module features Yamaha's high-quality tone generator with realistic acoustic drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. You get the sounds of hi-end oak, maple, beech and birch drums, with details like velocity-switching samples (that changes sound characteristic as you play harder) so you will feel like you are listening to a "live" set of drums. The 50 preset kits are ready for you to perform a wide range of music styles, and you can select your favorite sounds to create custom user kits, and add digital reverb effects and master EQ to sweeten the sound. The DTX500 drum trigger module provides you with amazingly realistic drum sounds. Using digital sound technology derived from the MOTIF ES synthesizer, these instruments come alive from under your sticks, directly responding to your dynamic performance with full musical expression.
Play Along With Musical Practice Songs
The songs of the DTX500 let you play along in different styles with or without the recorded drum track, solo the bass player, or with the full ensemble to make playing fun and practicing seem more like a band rehearsal.
Practical Tools That Improve Your Groove
Yamaha's popular groove tools have set the standard for educational functions that are not only easy and fun to use, but actually help you become a better drummer. The DTX500 has a collection of training functions including the popular Groove Check that displays whether you are playing early or late, so you can more easily correct undesirable habits. Rhythm Gate is like a drumming game that automatically mutes the sound if you playing is too far out of time, so you quickly learn to control your groove and play "in the pocket". Practice has never been this much fun!
AUX INPUT Connection To Play Along With Your Favorite Tunes
The DTX500 includes an audio input for connecting an external music player to the module so you can play along with your favorite music, either through the main output or in your headphones, so you can quickly master the piece you want to learn note for note.
Programmable Click Tracks With The Hi-Performance Metronome
The DTX500 is equipped with a high-performance, programmable metronome made for drummers that allows complicated rhythms and tones to be set.
MIDI Connection Offers More Possibilities
The DTX500 trigger module is equipped with a MIDI output port for connecting to additional devices or a computer for music production applications.
