PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep these precautions in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock,
short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable
parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill
into any openings.
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a
sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual
smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the
power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the
instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-5C or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the
outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the
instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or
radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord,
place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk
on, trip over, or roll anything over it.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always
hold the plug itself and not the cord.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries
together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause
overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
• When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long
time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage
of the battery fluid.
• Keep batteries away from children.
• If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery
fluid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may
possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns.
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off
the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all
components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the
volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the
volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening
level.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme
cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the
day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components.
(4)-7
• Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference which can
affect proper operation of the other products.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other
cables.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Also, do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since
this might discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and
do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Do not operate the instrument for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you
experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
■DATA BACK-UP AND STORAGE
• Yamaha recommends that you regularly save data using an external device
such as the floppy disk-based Yamaha MIDI data filer MDF3, and storing
the floppy disks in a safe, cool, dry place. YAMAHA CANNOT BE HELD
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCIDENTAL LOSS OF IMPORTANT MUSIC
DATA! Regarding the data you have created, as long as fresh batteries are
inserted in (or an AC power adaptor is connected to) the instrument, the
data will be retained, even when the power is turned off. It will also be
retained long enough to exchange an old set of batteries for a new set. If
you have important data in the instrument which you don’t want to lose,
please take care to keep fresh batteries inserted in (or keep an AC power
adaptor connected to) the instrument, and to regularly save data.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper
use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your DD-55 for playing. Make sure
to read this section carefully before using the instrument.
Power Requirements
Although the DD-55 will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends
use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.
Using an AC Power Adaptor
q Make sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the DD-55
is set to STANDBY.
w Connect the AC adaptor (PA-5C or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to the power supply jack.
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
• Never interrupt the power supply (e.g. remove the batteries or
unplug the AC adaptor) during any DD-55 record operation!
Doing so can result in a loss of data.
PA-5C
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-5C AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to power your
instrument from the AC mains. The use of other adaptors may
result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the DD55.
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the DD-55, or
during electrical storms.
Using Batteries
For battery operation the DD-55 requires six 1.5V “C” size,
R14P (LR14) or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are
recommended.) When the batteries need to be replaced, the
volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other
problems may occur. When this happens, turn the power off
and replace the batteries, as described below.
q Open the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom panel.
w Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow the
polarity markings on the inside of the compartment.
e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks
firmly in place.
• When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries.
NEVER mix old and new batteries.
• Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the same
time.
• If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in
order to prevent possible fluid leakage from the battery.
• Plugging or unplugging the AC power adaptor while the batteries are installed will
reset the DD-55 to the defaults.

Using a pair of headphones
A standard pair of stereo headphones can be
plugged in here for private practice or late-night
playing. The internal stereo speaker system is
automatically shut off when a pair of head phones
is plugged into the PHONES/OUTPUT jack.
Do not listen with the headphones at high volume for long periods of time. Doing so may cause hearing loss.
Side Panel (Left)
• Connect the DD-55 to external equipment only after turning off
power for all devices. To prevent damage to the speakers, set the
volume of the external devices at the minimum setting before connecting them. Failure to observe these cautions may result in electric shock or equipment damage.

• Since speakers are built into the
DD-55, you should be careful to
never leave any video tapes,
cassette tapes, floppy disks or
any kind of magnetic storage
media on the panel — doing so
may result in data loss or damage to the items. Also avoid
using the DD-55 near a television or computer monitor, since
interference may result.
Using the Foot Pedals (1/2)
When connected, these pedals can be used simultaneously play the drum set’s hi-hat pedal or bass
drum voices — or they can also be assigned to
play other voices as well. Connect the supplied
Pedal 1 to the PEDAL 1 jack @4 and Pedal 2 to
the PEDAL 2 jack @1.
• Make sure that the pedal plugs are properly connected to the PEDAL jacks before turning on the
power.
• Do not press Pedal 2 while turning the power on.
Doing this changes the recognized polarity of the
pedal, resulting in reversed pedal operation.
• Avoid using the pedals directly on a soft floor,
since they may scratch the surface of the floor.

MIDI Functions
The MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals, located on the DD-55’s right side panel, offer
broadened musical possibilities through use of MIDI. What is MIDI? What can you do
with MIDI? And how can you use MIDI with the DD-55? Here are some answers to
those questions...
What’s MIDI?
No doubt you have heard the terms “acoustic instrument” and “digital instrument.” In the world
today, these are the two main categories of instruments.
Let’s consider an acoustic piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic instruments. With
the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer inside hits some strings and plays a note. With the guitar,
you directly pluck a string and the note sounds.
But how does a digital instrument go about playing a note?
● Acoustic guitar note production
● Digital instrument note production
Sampling
Note
Tone Generator
(Electronic
circuit)
Sampling
Note
Playing
the pads
Pluck a string and the body resonates the sound.
Based on playing information from the pads and
pedals, a sampling note stored in the tone generator is played through the speakers.
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampling note (previously
recorded note) stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit) is played based on information
received from the pads and pedals. So then what is the information from the pads and pedals that
becomes the basis for note production?
For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter note using the grand piano sound on the keyboard.
Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out information from the keyboard such as with what voice, with which key, about how strong, when was it
pressed and when was it released. Then each piece of information is changed into a number value
and sent to the tone generator. Using these numbers as a basis, the tone generator plays the stored
sampling note.
● Example of Keyboard Information
Voice number (with what voice)
01 (grand piano)
Note number (with which key)
60 (C3)
Note on (when was it pressed) and note off
(when was it released)
Timing expressed numerically
(quarter note)
Velocity (about how strong)
120 (strong)
21
MIDI Functions
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which allows electronic
musical instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and receiving compatible Note,
Control Change, Program Change and various other types of MIDI data, or messages.
The DD-55 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and various types of controller data.
The DD-55 can be controlled by the incoming MIDI messages which automatically determine tone
generator mode, select MIDI channels, voices and effects, change parameter values and of course
play the voices specified for the various parts.
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System messages.
● Channel Messages
The DD-55 is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 channels. This is usually expressed
as “it can play 16 instruments at the same time.” Channel messages transmit information such
as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of the 16 channels.
Message Name
DD-55 Operation/Panel Setting
Note ON/OFF
Messages which are generated when the pad or pedal is played.
Each message includes a specific note number which corresponds to the
pad which is struck, plus a velocity value based on how hard the pad is
struck.
Program Change
Voice setting (control change bank select MSB/LSB setting; only receive
is available)
Control Change
Voice setting (volume, pan pot, etc.; only receive is available)
● System Messages
This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI system. System messages include messages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each instrument manufacturer and
Realtime Messages that control the MIDI device.
Message Name

The messages transmitted/received by the DD-55 are shown in the MIDI Implementation Chart on
page 41.
About MIDI terminals
In order to exchange MIDI data between multiple devices, each device must be connected by a MIDI cable.
The DD-55 is equipped with two types of MIDI terminals, both of which are located on the right side panel.
MIDI IN .................... Data transmitted from other MIDI instruments via MIDI, is received at
this terminal.
MIDI OUT ................ Data produced by the DD-55, is transmitted to other MIDI instruments
via MIDI from this terminal.
• Never use MIDI cables longer
than about 15 meters. Cables
longer than this can pick up
noise which can cause data
errors.
22
MIDI Functions
What You Can Do With MIDI
The DD-55 also features side panel MIDI terminals (MIDI IN and MIDI OUT) as well as a comprehensive set of MIDI functions, that let you use the instrument in a variety of recording and performance applications.
In all cases, make sure to properly set the MIDI Transmit Channels on the DD-55. Also make appropriate settings on the connected instruments. (Refer to the relevant owner’s manuals for details.)
● You can play the voices and sounds of the DD-55 from another MIDI instrument
This setup allows you to control the DD-55 from a MIDI keyboard controller — especially one not having a tone generator. Connect the MIDI IN terminal on the DD-55 to
the MIDI OUT terminal on the other instrument.

● You can play the voices and sounds of another MIDI instrument from the DD-55
In this setup, you can play another MIDI instrument or tone generator from the DD-55.
For example, this lets you mix two different sounds together when you play a pad on the
DD-55. Connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI IN terminal on the
other instrument.

● You can record your performance on the DD-55 to a connected sequencer or
computer
Here, you can record all your playing, along with the DD-55’s auto accompaniment, to
a connected computer or sequencer. Naturally, you can use the sophisticated functions
of the computer or sequencer to edit your data, and play it back using the sounds of the
DD-55. The DD-55 also lets you play back up to 16 different channels — letting you
create complex recordings and compositions.
To set up, connect the MIDI OUT terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI IN terminal on
the sequencer or computer (allowing you to record). Also, connect the MIDI IN terminal on the DD-55 to the MIDI OUT terminal on the sequencer or computer (allowing
playback). You may need to set Local On/Off (page 26) to off, for best results.

Setting the Clock
When the DD-55 is connected via MIDI to another MIDI device — such as a sequencer or rhythm
machine — you can have the two devices play back in perfect synchronization. To do this properly,
you have to make sure that the time based functions (song playback, etc.) on each device are properly
set, as to whether they are controlled by internal clock or external clock. When the internal clock (I)
is enabled on the DD-55, timing will be controlled by the DD-55’s internal clock. When external
clock (E) selected, the DD-55 will synchronize to the external sequencer’s or computer’s clock.
I (Internal) ...............The DD-55’s clock is used as the timing clock.
E (External)...............The external clock is used as the timing clock (If the clock is set to
external without being connected to another MIDI device, the DD-55’s
Song Play or Demo functions will not operate.)

Local ON/OFF
The Local ON/OFF setting determines whether or not the internal voices respond to the notes you
play on the DD-55’s pads. Setting this to OFF disconnects the DD-55’s pads from the voices. However, data produced by the DD-55 is transmitted via the MIDI OUT terminal.
on (Local ON) ..........The internal voices will be played and controlled by the DD-55 and its
pads. Data received via MIDI will also be played by the DD-55.
oFF (Local OFF) .....Striking the pads will not produce any sound from the voices. However,
the data will be transmitted through the MIDI OUT. However, data
received via MIDI will be played by the DD-55.
• Normally, this should be set to “on” — since you’ll want to hear the sound of the
DD-55 as you play it. However, for external sequencer applications, you may
need to set this to “oFF” to avoid getting “double” notes, in which the sounds of
the DD-55 are played twice — once from the pads and once again by the pad
data routed through the sequencer.

Appendix
Troubleshooting .......................................................................
In many cases, problems or malfunctions that occur during use can be remedied easily.
Please check the following list before deciding that your DD-55 is damaged.
If the suggested remedy is ineffective, take the DD-55 to an authorized Yamaha dealer
for proper diagnosis and repair. Do not attempt to repair this digital instrument by
yourself as serious damage may occur.
Problem
Cause/Solution
A buzz or click occurs momentarily when the
DD-55 is turned ON or OFF
This is a normal power surge noise that occurs when the
POWER switch is operated.
The LED display is completely dark. When the
pads are struck, the display is dark and returns
to “000”.
The batteries are low and should be replaced with a complete set of six new batteries immediately. Ideally, an
optional AC adaptor PA-5C should be used to power the
DD-55 (see page 5).
The custom pad voice assignments have disappeared or defaulted.
No sound comes from the speakers.
• The volume is set too low. Adjust the volume (see page 8).
• A plug is inserted into the PHONES/OUTPUT jack and
should be taken out (see page 7).
• The LOCAL ON/OFF is set to OFF. Set the LOCAL ON/
OFF to ON (see page 26).
• You are in the MIDI/Utility mode. Exit the MIDI/Utility
mode (see page 25).
Striking two pads simultaneously results in one
of the pads not sounding.

* By assigning Closed and Open Hi-Hat voices to both the Pad and Pedal, those voices can be controlled with the foot pedal as follows:
• Strike the pad while pressing the Foot Pedal, the “Closed” Hi-Hat voice will sound.
• Strike the pad without pressing the Foot Pedal, the “Open” Hi-Hat voice will sound.
• Press the Foot Pedal without striking the pad, the Hi-Hat “Pedal” voice will sound.
• If these voices have been assigned to more than one pad, only the left-most pad can be used with
the Pedal function (Closed/Open).

The Sequential Kit features complete rhythm pattern phrases that you can play simply by hitting a pad on the DD55. No need to worry if you hit a pad repeatedly or hit more than one pad — the DD-55 plays the phrase through
once and stops, until you hit a pad again.
