DTX-PADs - For Quiet Practice that Improves Technique
After years of designing and manufacturing some of the world's finest drums, Yamaha knows what it means for drums to feel good and play naturally. They designed the DTX-PAD to be the new standard in electronic drum pads, providing drummers with a pad that feels good, offers playability that is as close as possible to acoustic drums, and is exceptionally quiet. Teaming up with the world's top drummers to satisfy their demanding sense of perfection, Yamaha focused their knowledge and experience and created the DTX-PAD. This next generation drum pad allows for true development of acoustic drumming techniques. The DTX700K utilizes the DTX-PAD for the snare, with authentic stick response and ability to play open/closed rim shots essential for snare performance. You also get single-zone DTX-PADs for the toms and floor tom.
The DTX700 drum trigger module is packed with high quality acoustic drum, cymbal, and percussion voices (featuring our legendary Yamaha drums) as well as a collection of sounds from the MOTIF XF synthesizer. There is a wide variety of preset kits and you can easily customize the sounds yourself. These kits are extremely realistic down to the smallest details (including snare buzz and tom resonance) so that you will feel like you are listening to a set of acoustic drums. With 1,268 naturally sampled acoustic drum and percussion voices, the DTX700 module will bring out your best drum playing by allowing you to focus on your performance.
Easily Import Your Favorite Sample Sounds
You can add up to 64MB of new sounds to the DTX700K by importing wave samples directly into the module via the USB device port.
The songs of the DTX700K let you play along with or without the pre-recorded drum track, with just the bass player, or with the full ensemble to make playing and practicing seem more like a real 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 DTX700K 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 your 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!
Cymbals that Deliver Realistic Expression
The DTX700K also features our professional 3-zone cymbal pads, which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones. These cymbals have a good stick feel and low acoustic noise, which is essential for electronic drums when used for private practice. In addition to a very natural swaying motion, they also have the "choke" and "mute" functions, providing a high degree of expression similar to that of an actual cymbal.
Real Hi-Hat System that Reproduces Your Every Nuance
The hi-hat system of the DTX700K features a dual-zone trigger pad (for edge and bow sounds) that mounts to the included Yamaha hi-hat stand for realistic pedal action and versatile positioning.
The DTX700K includes an audio input for connecting an external CD or MP3 player into the module so you can play along with your favorite music. Listen through the main outputs or only 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 DTX700K is equipped with a high-performance, programmable metronome made for drummers that allows complicated rhythms and tones to be stored.
Expand Your Kit by adding more Pads!
The DTX700K gives you peace of mind, too. Even after purchasing the kit, you can expand by adding up to three additional pads if you need to have more toms, cymbals or a double-bass configuration. Moreover, all kinds of upgrades, such as an enlarged size for the snare's DTX-PAD, are possible.
Easy PC Connection and Storage with USB
The USB "HOST" port allows connection to a PC* using a single USB cable (sold separately) for sending MIDI data to music software such as Steinberg's "Cubase AI" (included). Use the USB "DEVICE" port for importing MIDI and audio from the computer into the module and for backing up your user data. * The USB-MIDI DRIVER must be installed in order to connect the DTX700 to your PC.
With one-touch you can quickly switch the hi-hat closed pedal sound to replicate a secondary bass drum. You can casually simulate the sound of a double-bass kit without purchasing twin pedals or extra kick pads!
Quiet Bass Pedal Option
The optional HH65 can be used as a bass drum pedal, letting you practice more quietly, so you can play regardless of time or place.
Yamaha's Exclusive Original Trigger Functions
With the DTX700K, up to four different sounds can be layered on any single pad. The "stack" function allows those sounds to be reproduced simultaneously, and the "alternate" function allows the four sounds to activate in sequence. The Pad Song function lets you trigger MIDI patterns from the pads to add spice to your playing or even control the digital effects. Using these functions together allows you to achieve a performance that's full of originality. This is something no acoustic drum kit can match.
