The response of the DTX-PADs has been precisely tuned to provide a natural feeling and playability around the entire kit and to integrate comfortably into a hybrid acoustic-electronic kit. TheDTX502 module includes 691 drums, percussion and effect sounds for any musical situation and offers comprehensive training functions, practice songs, and easy mini recording. The USB port allows plug and play control of VSTi software and lets you import custom wave files.
The DTX502 has almost twice the wave ROM and over 250 more sounds than its predecessor and features new drum and cymbal samples from top VST developers that have been optimized for DTX. Also, voices inherited from our other DTX modules have been updated for improved playability and sound.
Advanced Technology Under The Hood
Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, we precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from our higher-end models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drumrolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing.
The hi-hat system of the DTX562Kfeatures 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. Moreover, the hi-hat can express various styles of play such as open/close position, closed pedal, and foot splash. You can even play tip and edge voices for adding subtle nuances to the beat!
3-Zone Cymbals with “Choke” Feature Deliver Realistic Expression!
The DTX562K 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” function 360-degrees around the edge. You can even mute the cymbal before striking it – a DTX exclusive feature!
Updated Practice Functions With Scoring
New drum training functions are included to challenge you no matter your current skill level every time you practice. Working with these tools will help you improve the most important skills for drumming from rhythmic timing to pad accuracy and endurance. The system will even generate a score so you can track your progress as you improve.
New Design Offers Versatile Trigger and Upgrade Options
The DTX502 module is perfect for use in a ‘hybrid’ kit with your acoustic drum hardware and can be expanded with four additional pads or triggers. Pad upgrades let you build your dream kit as your skills improve. USB connectivity lets you connect to a PC. Your original WAVE can be imported. Up to 12sec (sampling rate 44.1kHz, 16bit, mono), 20 files(NOTES: The internal memory of DTX502 is also shared by external MIDI file if you load for example “Song Beat” data, as well your original WAVEfile. )
