Getting Started Choose a Drum Kit and Start Playing! Your Yamaha DTX contains 928 drum and percussion sounds. Drum and percussion sounds make up a drum kit (drum voice) and the drum kits are categorized by musical style. There are 64 drum kits: 32 preset drum kits and 32 user drum kits which enable you to enjoy performances of various musical styles just by selecting a kit.

Getting Started Play to a Pattern! Your Yamaha DTX features rhythm machine functions containing 660 preset patterns (110 styles x 6 sections) and 100 user patterns. One pattern consists of rhythm part, bass part and chord part. Each preset style contains 6 sections (MAIN A, MAIN B, FILL AB, FILL BA, INTRO, and ENDING).
CHO TR CHO TR While holding the SOLO button ... A The DTX is factory preset to automatically switch the drum kit to its most appropriate pattern each time the pattern is changed. To keep the drum kit from switching to its preset pattern, turn the PC function of the RecvCh 10 PC in Utility Mode off.
This function is useful for live performances. Your DTX also contains 128 normal keyboard voices. These voices are used to add bass or chord parts to the DTX rhythm pattern. It is also possible to play a melody or obbligato by changing a part (MIDI channel).
Your DTX contains 660 preset patterns (110 styles x 6 sections) with matching preset backings. 100 original user patterns can be created and stored within the DTX. In the same manner as the drum kit, the patterns can also be played back in a specified order using the chain function.
The term “triggering” refers to drive a tone generated from the DTX. The DTX is designed to produce a trigger signal when a pad or a drum with a trigger sensor connected to the DTX is hit. By assigning up to 5 types of voices of your preference you can produce them at one time by triggering a single signal from a drum pad.
Modes of the DTX Modes refer to functions which are grouped for efficient operation. The following 8 types of modes are available. Drum Kit Play mode (P.30): To select and play a drum kit. Chain Play mode (P.63): To play a preset chain (drum kits or patterns set in a specific order).
