NOTICE
To avoid the possibility of damage to the product, data or other property, follow the notices below.
■ Handling and Maintenance
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the
instrument, TV, or radio may generate noise.
• 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

Main Features
The DTX500 is equipped with a high-quality 32-polyphony tone generator that produces realistic
voices, includes a high-performance, multi-function metronome, a built-in sequencer and a variety of songs—all combined into a compact, portable package. The DTX500 is an exceptionally
versatile instrument that can be used in a variety of situations such as live performance, personal practice, and much more.
■ Drum Triggers
• The DTX500 drum trigger module is compatible with the new pads (XP series.)
• Built into the unit are twelve trigger input jacks and a hi-hat controller jack. The instrument also features jacks that are
compatible with two-zone or three-zone pads (pads that transmit different signals depending on the area that is hit).
Moreover, the snare drum jack is compatible with pad-controller-equipped pads. This lets you adjust the ‘virtual’
snares and the tuning—just as you would with an acoustic snare drum. All in all, the DTX500 has the operability, functionality and performance that is virtually equivalent to an acoustic drum kit.
• You can connect the DTX500 to an acoustic drum kit by using drum triggers such as Yamaha DT20. The setup data
such as the trigger input types and sensitivity can be customized to suit your playing preferences, style and particular
setup.
• Also included in the unit are 50 preset drum kits which naturally contain acoustic drum kits, and cover a wide range of
music genres, such as rock, funk, jazz, reggae, Latin, etc. Moreover, User kit memory is available for storing 20 sets.
With this, you can set up your own original drum kits using the various drum voices.
* The word “trigger” refers to the means by which hitting a pad sends a signal to the DTX500 as to what sound to play on the built-in
tone generator and how loud the sound should be played.
■ Tone Generator
• The DTX500 is equipped with a high-quality, 16-bit AWM2 (PCM) tone generator with 32-voice polyphony that produces dynamic voices or exceptional realism. The voices—totalling 427—cover a wide range sounds, such as authentic acoustic drums, unique electronic percussion, sound effects, and much more. The instrument also features a built-in
high-quality digital reverb for enhancing the sound.
■ High-performance Metronome
• The DTX500 provides with a comprehensive, multi-function metronome, allowing various click settings for each note
value. Each note value can be assigned its own separate click sound and pitch. You can also set a timer that will determine when the click stops and set breaks which how many measures the click will play and then be muted.
• The DTX500 also features a “Tap” function that lets you set the tempo for the song or click by tapping in tempo on a
pad to any tempo you like. This lets you set whatever tempo you desire for playing or practicing.
■ Sequencer
• The built-in sequencer contains a wide variety of 63 preset songs. Two functions that make the DTX500 great for practice are the Drum Mute Function, which mutes a specific drum part, and the Bass Solo function, which lets you play
along with just the song’s bass part. The DTX500 also allows you to record your performance in real time—and allows
you to play along with your recorded performance data.
• In addition to one main song that is controlled from the panel, three pad songs can be individually controlled and
simultaneously played by trigger input from the pads.
■ Groove Check
• The Groove Check function monitors your playing and provides instant feedback on your rhythmic skills, providing a
powerful way to quickly improve your technique. It includes a Rhythm Gate function that produces sounds only if
your timing is accurate, and also has a Challenge mode that evaluates your playing, giving you a letter grade—and
makes mastering the drums easier and more fun than ever before.
■ Interface
• A MIDI OUT jack on the rear panel lets you connect other devices and play sounds from an external tone generator or
synchronize the metronome with an external sequencer. Also provided are an AUX IN jack, which lets you plug in and
play along with an external audio device, such as a CD player or MD player, and a headphones jack for convenient
practice without disturbing others.

Trigger Setup
NOTE
• If you want to replace some of the pads from your drum set, or if
you need to solve any crosstalk problems, the operation “Trigger
Setup Edit” on page 34 describes how to make a detailed setting
for each pad after the above setting is done. If you have created a
setup for these reasons, that setup can be saved to one of the Trigger Setup locations (8-11).
• The DTX500’s input jack parameters are preset with settings
suitable for pads when an appropriate Trigger Setup is
selected. If you intend to connect any other type of pad or a
drum trigger (Yamaha DT20, etc.) to the input jack, that
jack’s parameters (sensitivity, etc.) should be changed to settings that suit the particular pad. Pad sensitivity is set in the
Trigger Setup Select display’s Page 3 [TRG3 Gain] setting
(p. 36).
• Pad-controller-equipped pads like the XP100SD, TP100,
etc., can be connected to Trigger Input jack 1SNARE.
• Three-zone pads like the TP65S, PCY155/150S, PCY135/
130SC, etc., can be connected to Trigger Input jacks
5RIDE and 6CRASH.
• 7HI HAT is a stereo input type jack. Pads equipped with
trigger switches like the TP65S, PCY65S, PCY130S, etc.
can be connected to this jack.
• The 2TOM1/ 0, 3TOM2/ !, 4TOM3/ @ jacks correspond to a two-trigger input that uses a stereo jack for L and
R. A Y-shaped cable (stereo plug—mono jack x 2) can be
used to input two trigger signals.
• The 8KICK/ 9 jack accepts a two-trigger input using a
stereo cable and jack for L and R signals. A Y-shaped cable
(stereo plug—mono jack x 2) can be used to input two trigger signals.
Also, if the KP125W/125/65 kick pad is connected to the
DTX500’s input jack 9 with a stereo cable, the external pad
input jack on the KP125W/125/65 can be used as the input
for Input jack 9.
• In addition to the 8KICK/ 9 jack, the 2TOM1/ 0,
3TOM2/ !, and 4 TOM3/ @ jacks can be used to connect a second bass drum pedal to create a double-bass drum
set.

Using the Groove Check Function
Another highly useful feature of the DTX500 is the Groove Check function. As you play along
with a song or the click, Groove Check compares your timing with the song or click playback
and lets you know how accurate your playing is.
The related Rhythm Gate function—in which the sound is cancelled if your timing is off—also
offers you a great way to improve your technique.
Groove Check Mode
The Groove Check function has the following two modes.
● Numeric Display Mode
In this mode, the accuracy of your drum hits is shown in
numeric display.
The aspects shown in the numeric display are the average
inaccuracy in the timing of each hit and the deviation in timing inaccuracy of all hits. To use this mode, select one of the
modes other than “Challenge” from the Rhythm Gate settings in the GRV2 page.
* Hit timing display
If your timing is slow or you’re dragging the beat, the
mark will move to the right side of the display. If your
timing is fast or you’re pushing the beat, the mark will
move to the left.
of Rhythm Gate according to the result. The tolerance automatically narrows if your hits are accurate and widens if your
hits are inaccurate.
This mode can be used by selecting “Challenge” from the
Rhythm Gate settings in the GRV2 page.
* Hit timing display
Just as with the Numeric Display mode, your timing is
displayed with an icon.
* Rhythm gate range
The set range of the Rhythm Gate is shown in the lower
side of the upper half of the display.
After a pad (pads) is hit a specific number of times, the
DTX500 evaluates the accuracy of the hits and sets the
range of Rhythm Gate automatically.
● Hit accuracy evaluation
In the lower half of the display, the number of remaining
hits and the current evaluation result (%) are shown.
The current level (evaluation) and the status change during playback. If your playing accuracy result (%) was
90% or more, the level is raised one step, and if accuracy
is 60% or less, the level is lowered one step.
• Current level (evaluation): A (best) to F (worst)
• The icon and the meaning of evaluation
Ã: Increases the strictness (as you continue playing in
the same way)
≥: Maintains the same strictness (as you continue playing in the same way)
À: Decreases the strictness (as you continue playing in
the same way)
* Rhythm Gate range
With the Rhythm Gate function, sound is produced only
if the hit is within the specified range, and sound is not
produced if the hit is outside this range. The range of
Rhythm Gate can be selected from three levels according
to the degree of difficulty and if this is set to off, sound is
always produced, no matter what your timing is. The
selected range is shown in the lower side of the upper half
of the display.
* Tempo
The jog dial can be used to adjust the tempo for the song
or click from 30 to 300.
* Inaccurate timing display
The average inaccuracies in timing as compared to the
note value set in page GRV4 are shown in numeric display. Range: 0 (perfectly accurate), 1–9 (in units of 1/24
of a 16th note)
The deviation in timing inaccuracy is 0.0 to 9.9. Of
course, the smaller this value is, more “in the pocket”
your playing is.

* Tempo
Tempo is not shown in the Challenge mode display. To
change the tempo, hold the [SHIFT] button and rotate the

Play as accurately as possible
Listen to the song or click and concentrate on playing the
pads accurately. The jog dial can be used to adjust the tempo
for the song or click.
If the Numeric Display mode is selected, stop the song or
click and check the results. Change the Rhythm Gate setting,
pad type, or note value as you like and enjoy practicing.
* The Groove Check’s results are reset the next time song or
click starts playing.
If the Challenge mode is selected, when the remaining hits
become zero, the final evaluation is displayed in six levels
from A to F. With this evaluation, the range over which the
sound is produced is set automatically. The higher the evaluation (A is the highest and F the lowest), the narrower the tolerance becomes.
* The Groove Check’s results are reset the next time song or
click starts playing. The current level (evaluation) and the
range over which sound is produced are also reset.

Record Your Performance
In this section, you’ll learn how to record your performance to the DTX500’s built-in sequencer.
In the song data you record, you can switch Drum Kits, change the tempo and playback in the
same way as with Preset Songs.
Recording System
• Tempo [Range] 30 to 300
Sets the click’s tempo (q=) when recording.
• Recording can be done with any of the User Songs (64–83).
However, you cannot record to Preset Songs (1–63).
• A recorded song doesn’t contain recordings of the audio
‘sounds’ of the drums, but rather the performance ‘information’ or data of precisely when and how each pad was hit. This
information is called sequence data. Unlike audio data,
sequence data can be freely used to change the tempo, select
the voice or drum kit during playback.
• Beat [Range] 1 to 9
Sets the click’s beat when recording.
• Quantize [Range] ⁄, ⁄3, Ö (eighth note), Ö3 (eighth
note triplet), Ü (sixteenth note), Ü3 (sixteenth note triplet), no
The Quantize function can be applied during recording
and is used to align the timing of your performance with
that of the nearest specified beat. The accuracy of quantization is assigned with a note value.
* A setting of “no” results in no quantization.
Now, let’s start recording…

Create Your Own Original Drum Kit
The DTX500 lets you create your own original Drum Kit by assigning your favorite Drum Voice to
each pad and setting its tuning, pan, decay, reverb, etc.
* Drum Voice: Mainly individual percussion/drum sounds that are assigned to each of the pads.
* Drum Kit: A collection of Drum Voices assigned to pads.

● About the Trigger Input Sources
The Input Source indicates the trigger data that is transmitted by the pads
or drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) that are connected to trigger input
jacks 1SNARE to 8KICK/ 9 of the DTX500.
When mono pads TP65, KP125W/125/65, PCY65/130, DT10/20, etc. are
used, one Input Source is assigned to one input jack. When stereo pads
RHH135/130, PCY65S, etc. are used, two Input Sources (pad input and
rim switch input or 2 kinds of pad inputs, etc.) are assigned to one input
jack.
When three-zone pads XP100T/100SD/120T/120SD, TP65S, TP120SD/
100, PCY155/150S/135/130SC, etc., are used, three Input Sources (pad
input and two rim switch inputs, etc.) will be assigned to one input jack.
Each Input Source is defined as follows.

This function allows you to assign different voices to the
same alternate group, so that the playing of one sound in the
group will automatically cancel others in the same group. A
practical example of this is with the open and closed hi-hat
voices. When you play an actual hi-hat—first open, then
closed—the closed hi-hat naturally mutes the ringing open
sound. Likewise, when the open and closed hi-hat voices are
assigned to the same alternate group, the playing of one
mutes the other.

voices ˙ and ¶.

Trigger Setup Edit
Trigger Setup Edit contains various settings related to trigger input signals received from pads
or drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) that are connected to the trigger input jacks. These settings let you optimize the DTX500 for best operation and response to these signals.
If you are using drum triggers attached to acoustic drums, or pads other than those that came
with the DTX500 set, you’ll need to adjust the sensitivity. This section also has settings that help
prevent crosstalk* and double triggering*.
* Crosstalk: The interference between trigger signals of physically adjacent pads, producing unexpected notes.
* Double triggering: The condition where a single pad hit causes multiple (usually two) triggers.
Trigger Setup procedure
3
If you want to replace some of the pads from your drum set, or if
you need to solve problems with double triggering or crosstalk,
the Trigger Setup provides more detailed settings—such as
changing the preset’s trigger setup—for individual pads.
If you’ve created a custom setup for these reasons or others, that
setup can be saved to one of the Trigger Setup locations (8–11).
1
Rotate the jog dial to change the setting.
* An asterisk “*” will appear next to “TRG” in the display if data
is changed. This asterisk will disappear after the Store operation is carried out.
* The Trigger Input Level produced when a pad is hit is shown
on the upper right side of the display. When setting the gain,
use this level as a guide to measure how hard a pad is being
hit.

Setting a larger value lets a smaller input level from the pad create sound.
* This value will be automatically set after the appropriate pad
type is set in [TRG2 Type (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the
value will be necessary.
* Some pads are equipped with a sensitivity adjustment knob.
For details, refer to the owner’s manual that came with the
particular pad.
MVI

Sets the MIDI Velocity (volume) that is transmitted when the pad
is hit the softest. Large values will produce a high volume level
even if the pad is hit softly. However, this will result in a narrow
volume range making it difficult to adequately produce wider
dynamic levels.
The Trigger Input Level will be displayed in percentage in the
upper right hand corner of the display. The maximum velocity
(input level 99 percent) will be 127. The lower the level is when
the pad is hit the weakest, the wider the potential dynamic range
will be.

You have exceeded the memory capacity of the user song.
Delete unused songs to make more memory available and try recording again.
Writing data to the backup ROM has failed.
Troubleshooting
The DTX500 does not produce sound, or does not recognize trigger inputs.
● Are the pads or drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) properly
connected to the DTX500’s trigger input jacks? (p. 10)
● Is the DTX500 properly connected to headphones or an external audio device such as an amplifier, speaker, etc.? (p. 10)
● Check the position of the Standby/On switches and volume
levels of any connected external audio devices, such as an
amplifier, speaker, etc.
● The volume knob on the rear panel may be turned down (p.
13).
● Is the gain set too low? (p. 36 [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum
Velocity)])
● The volume setting on the Drum Kit Select display’s “KIT3 Volume” page (p. 27) may be set to “0.”
● Is there a problem with the cable you are using?
● The drum voices for both layers ˙ and ¶ may be set to
“00:NoAssign.” (p. 27 Step2: [KIT2])
38
DTX500 Owner’s Manual
The external tone generator does not produce sound.
● Is the MIDI cable (connector) properly connected? (p. 11)
● Is the correct MIDI connector being used? (p. 11)
● Are the MIDI note number values appropriate?
(p. 28 Steps 8 to 10: [KIT8], [KIT9], [KIT10])
● The drum voices for both layers ˙ and ¶ may be set to
“00:NoAssign.” (p. 27 Step2: [KIT2])
A voice other than the set voice is produced.
● Is the transmitting MIDI channel set to a channel that is not
used for the drum voice (ch=10)? (p. 28, Step 9: [KIT9])
● Are two-layer voices set in the voice setting on the Drum Kit
Select display? (p. 27 Step 2: [KIT2])
Produces sound but the sensitivity is too low (volume
is low).
● Is the gain set too low? (p. 36: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum
Velocity)])
● Pads with a level adjustment knob should be adjusted
(increased).
● Is the minimum velocity set too low? (p. 36: [TRG3 Gain, MVI
(Minimum Velocity)])
● Are you using a proper velocity curve? (p. 36: [TRG4 VelCurve
(Velocity Curve)])
● Is the volume of the voice you want to use too low? (p. 27 Step
3: [KIT3])
Troubleshooting
The trigger sound is not stable. (For acoustic drums)
● Check the entry “Produces sound but the sensitivity is too low
(volume is low)” above.
● Try selecting a larger pad type setting (DT snare → DT HiTom
→ DT LoTom → DT Kick). (p. 35: [TRG2 Type (Pad Type)])
● Is the Drum Trigger (Yamaha DT20, etc.) improperly attached
with duct tape? (Is there any old adhesive remaining on the
head?)
● Is the cable securely connected to the drum trigger (Yamaha
DT20, etc.) jack?
Double triggering is produced.
● Pads with a level adjustment knob should be adjusted (lowered).
● Is the gain set too high? (p. 36: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum
Velocity)])
● Use the self-rejection setting. (p. 36: [TRG5 RejTime (Self
Rejection Time)])
● (KP65) Is the pad type for the input jack to which the KP65 is
connected set to Kick Pad? (p. 35: [TRG2 Pad Type])
● Are you using drum triggers (trigger sensors) made by other
manufacturers? Too large a signal can result in double triggering.
● Is the head causing irregular vibrations? It may be necessary
to mute the head.
● When using acoustic drums, make sure the Drum Trigger is
attached near the rim (above the bearing) and not near the
center of the head.
● When using acoustic drums, make sure that nothing is touching the Drum Trigger.
Crosstalk (trigger interference from different inputs) is
produced.
● Is the gain set too high? (p. 36: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum
Velocity)])
● Try increasing the rejection parameter. However, avoid setting
this value too high since that may cause the sound to not be
produced when another pad (trigger input) is hit at the same
time. (p. 36: [TRG6 RejLvlAll (Rejection Level)])
● If crosstalk is produced with a specific trigger input, try using
specific rejection. (p. 37: [TRG7 RejLvl (Specified Rejection
Level)])
● When using acoustic drums, place the Drum Trigger away from
any nearby drum.
Sounds are cut when you play continuously.
● The maximum polyphony of 32 voices might be exceeded. In
the Drum Kit Select dispaly’s “KIT15 Key Assign Mode” page
(p. 29), set the “KeyAssign” value to “semi” or “mono.”
When two pads (drums) are played only one sound is
heard.
● Raise the gain setting of the pad (trigger input) that is not producing sound. (p. 36: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])
● Lower the rejection setting of the pad (trigger input) that is not
producing sound. (p. 36: [TRG6 RejLvlAll (Rejection Level)])
● Lower the specified rejection setting of the pad (trigger input)
that is not producing sound (p. 37: [TRG7 RejLvl (Specified
Rejection Level)])
● Are both pads (trigger inputs) set to the same alternate group?
(p. 29 Step 14: [KIT14])
The sound is always loud.
● Is the minimum velocities minimum value set too high? (p. 36:
[TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])
● Are you using an appropriate velocity curve? (p. 36: [TRG4
VelCurve (Velocity Curve)])
● Are you using a pad made by another manufacturer? Depending upon the manufacturer, output levels might be too large.
The DTX500 does not receive any switch or trigger signals.
● If you can access the Utility display, perform the Factory Set
operation. The DTX500 will reset to its factory settings. (p. 33:
[UTIL8 Factory Set])
● Turn the power off then on while holding the [<] and [>] buttons together. The DTX500 will reset to its factory settings.
The sound does not stop.
● Some voices have very long release times when the “key off”
parameter is set to “disable.” (p. 28 Step 11: [KIT11])
Press the [DRUM KIT] button to temporarily stop the sound.
The pad controller function does not work
● Have you connected a pad equipped with a pad controller,
such as the TP100 or TP120SD?
● Are the pad controller settings properly set? (p. 15)
The Closed Hi-Hat voice is not produced.
● Is the proper pad type selected? If the RHH135/130 is used as
a hi-hat controller, the pad type must be set to “RHH.” (p. 35:
[TRG2 Pad Type])
The edge or cup sections of the cymbal pad do not produce sound when struck. The choke functions do not
work.
● Is the proper pad type selected? Select the appropriate pad
type for the kind of cymbal pad you are using. (p. 35: [TRG2
Pad Type])
● The sound produced by the edge and cup section will not be
produced when a pad equipped with a rim switch (PCY135/
155 etc.) is connected to the Input jack 9– @.
Foot Splashes are not produced.
● Is the foot controller connected to the HI HAT CONTROL jack?
● Adjust the detection time of foot splashes. (p. 14: Adjusting the
Hi-hat)
I need to restore the original factory settings of the
instrument.
● Use the Factory Set function (p. 33) to reset the DTX500 internal settings to the initial factory settings.
