This kit includes the new DTX700 module featuring 1,268 percussive voices, 64MB of Flash-ROM for loading new sounds, and USB connectivity. The DTX-PADs provide superior feel around the entire kit, and the snare features 3-zones for dynamic head, rimshot, and cross-stick play. The DTX700SP includes a pad set (DTP700P), drum trigger module (DTX700) and rack system (RS500). Because this configuration does not include cymbals or hi-hat it is perfect when adding electronics to your acoustic kit or for use with the gen16 AE Cymbal box sets. Trigger and audio cables not included.
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. Yamaha 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 DTX700SP utilizes a 3-zone XP80 DTX-PAD for the snare, with single-zone XP70 DTX-PADs for the toms.
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.
You can add up to 64MB of new sounds to the DTX700SP by importing wave samples directly into the module via the USB device port.
The songs of the DTX700SP 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.
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 DTX700SP 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!
The DTX700SP includes an audio input for connecting an external music player to the module so you can play along with your favorite music, either though the main output or in your headphones, so you can quickly master the piece you want to learn note for note.
The DTX700SP is equipped with a high-performance, programmable metronome made for drummers that allows complicated rhythms and tones to be set.
The DTX700SP gives you peace of mind, too. Even after purchasing the kit, you can expand by adding up to six additional pads if you want more toms, electronic cymbal pads or a double-bass configuration. All kinds of upgrades including support for the DTX-PADs are possible.
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.
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.
With the DTX700SP, 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.
The RS500 rack for the DTX700SP uses curved steel pipes for a compact setup that offers durable stability, and features a Yamaha ball clamp that lets you precisely position the snare pad.
