Caution
Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3C 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 instrument.
PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual 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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage
is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-3C or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only.
Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• 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.
Do not open
• 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.
Water warning
• 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.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall
over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
• 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.
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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the
plug itself and not the cord.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical
storms.
• 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.
Location
• 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.
• 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 place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• Use only the stand/rack specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or
rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the
internal components or result in the instrument falling over.
Connections
• 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.
Maintenance
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Handling caution
• 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.
Backup battery
• This instrument has a built-in lithium backup battery. When you unplug the power
cord from the AC outlet, the internal data is retained. However, if the backup battery
fully discharges, this data will be lost. When the backup battery is running low, the
display indicates “Battery Low.” In this case, immediately memo the data settings,
then have qualified Yamaha service personnel replace the backup battery.
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.
Even when the power switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing
to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a
long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

The DTXPLORER’s Main FeaturesMain Features
The DTXPLORER is equipped with a high-quality 32-polyphony tone generator that produces realistic voices, a
high-performance metronome, and a variety of songs, all built into a compact design.
The DTXPLORER is a versatile instrument that can be used in a variety of situations such as live performance,
personal practice, and much more.
■ Drum Trigger Function
• Built into the unit are nine trigger input jacks and a hi-hat controller jack. Jacks that are compatible with rim
switch and 3-zone trigger equipped pads are also supplied. In addition to trigger pad compatibility, the unit can
also be used with devices such as Yamaha’s DT20 Drum Triggers, etc.
• Setup data such as pad trigger input type, sensitivity settings, etc., are stored in four preset patterns. This lets you
simply choose the system that meets your playing needs. The unit also provides a pattern for user memory in
which you can create and store your own custom settings for pads or drum triggers.
• Also included in the unit are 32 preset drum kits. Acoustic drum kit types cover a range of genres from rock, funk,
jazz, reggae, Latin percussion, etc. and are readily available for use.
There are also 10 user memory kits in which you can freely mix, match and edit a variety of drum/percussion
voices to create your own original drum kits.
■ Tone Generator
• The DTXPLORER is equipped with a high-quality, 16-bit AWM2 (PCM) tone generator with 32 voice polyphony.
• Voices include 192 drum and percussion voices. Voices cover a wide range of sounds such as highly realistic
acoustic sounds, unique electronic percussion sounds, effect sounds, and much more.
• Also featured is the same internal digital reverb section that is found in Yamaha’s MU series of GM/XG compatible tone generators.
■ High Performance Metronome
• The sound for each note value is adjustable. Each note value can be assigned its own separate click voice and
pitch. You can also set a timer that will determine when the metronome stops and set breaks which how many
measures the metronome will play and then be muted.
• The DTXPLORER also features a “Tap” function that lets you set the tempo for the metronome or song by
tapping in tempo on a pad to any tempo you like.
■ Preset Songs
• The sequencer contains 22 preset songs (two demo songs plus 20 pattern songs). Two functions that make the
DTXPLORER great for practice are the Bass Solo Function—which lets you play along with the song’s bass part
only—and the Drum Mute Function—which mutes a specific drum part.
■ Groove Check Function
• The Groove Check Function is a great training aid that will let you know how accurate your playing is and check
your consistency in dynamics (output level). This function is an excellent aid for those who want to increase their
precision in playing.
■ Interface
• A MIDI OUT jack on the rear panel lets you play sounds from an external tone generator or synchronize the
metronome with an external sequencer.
• An AUX IN (Auxiliary In) jack lets you plug in an external audio device such as a CD player, MD player, etc., and
play along.
• A headphones jack is also included.

● About the Trigger Input Sources
Sets the voice for each input source of the pad.
The Input Source is trigger data that is transmitted by the
pads or trigger sensors connected to input jacks 1 to 9 of the
DTXPLORER.
When monaural pads TP60/65/80, KP60/65/80, PCY60/65/
80/130, DT10/20, etc. are used, one Input Source will be assigned to one input jack.
When stereo pads TP65S/80S, PCY65S/80S/130S, etc. are
used, two Input Sources (pad input and rim switch input or 2
kinds of pad input, etc.) will be assigned to one input jack.
When a 3-zone pad such as the TP65S/PCY150S, etc., is used,
three Input Sources (pad input and two rim switches, etc.)
will be assigned to one input jack.
To select the pad (Trigger Input Source), simply hit the target

10. Set the Alternate Group
By assigning voices like the hi-hat’s open and closed voices—
voices that you don’t want to have playing at the same time—
to the same alternate group, the voice that is currently sounding will be switched off when the trigger for the next voice in
the same alternate group is received (after the open hi-hat voice
is switched off, the closed hi-hat voice sounds).
Use the [>] button to view page KIT10, then rotate the jog
dial to set the alternate group (off, 1 to 9).
When this setting is set to “off”, the mute will not be active.

Trigger Setup Edit
Trigger Setup Edit contains various settings related to trigger input signals received from the
pads or trigger sensors that are connected to the Trigger Input jacks. It lets you make adjustments so that the DTXPLORER can better deal with these signals.
If you are using a drum trigger other than those that came with the DTXPLORER set, it will be
necessary to adjust the sensitivity or assign voices to the individual trigger inputs. This section
also has settings that help prevent cross talk and double triggers.
Selecting the Trigger Setup
Editing the Trigger Setup
The DTXPLORER includes four different preset types (No. 1 to 4)
in the Trigger Setup. No. 1 contains data for a basic setup that uses
the pads that came with the DTXPLORER connected to the unit’s
Trigger Input jacks as labeled on the rear panel (1SNARE, etc.). When
shipped from the factory, Trigger Setup No. 1 is already selected.
No. 2 to 4 also contain setup data designed for use with the
DTXPLORER’s accompanying pads. Settings related to sensitivity
and expression vary in these presets. No. 5 is used for saving a custom setup. Refer to the [Editing the Trigger Setup] section described
in the next section for more information on creating a custom setup.
Select the Trigger Setup that fits your playing style best. Use the
procedure described below to select the Trigger Setup you want to
use.
If you are using pads or drum triggers other than those that came
with your DTXPLORER, or if you need to solve problems with
double triggers or cross talk, 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 reasons described above, that
setup can be saved to Trigger Setup No. 5.
1. Press the [SHIFT] + [DRUM KIT] buttons to view page 1
in the Trigger Setup Select display (TRIG 1). The currently
selected Trigger Setup is indicated in the display.

create sound.
* This value will be automatically set after the appropriate pad
type is set in [TRIG2 Pad (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the

events will be automatically muted for a certain length of time.
Larger values set longer times.
[Range] 1 to 127
Sets the MIDI Velocity (volume) that is transmitted when the pad
is hit the weakest. 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 as a % in the upper right
hand corner of the display. The maximum velocity (input level 99%)
will be 127. The level is low when the pad is hit the weakest so a
wider dynamic range will be possible.

Trouble Shooting
Cross-talk (mixed signals from different inputs) is produced.
● Is the gain set too high? (→ P. 26 [TRIG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])
● Try increasing the rejection parameter. However, a setting a value that is too high may cause the sound to be
muted when another drum is hit at the same time. (→ P. 26 [TRIG6 Rejection (Rejection Level)])
● If cross-talk is produced with a specific trigger input, try using specific rejection. (→ P. 27 [TRIG7 SPRej (Specified

● Are you using a proper velocity curve? (→ P. 26 [TRIG4 VelCurve (Velocity Curve)])
● Are you using a sensor made by a manufacturer other than Yamaha? Depending upon the manufacturer output
levels might be too large.
The DTXPLORER does not receive any switch or trigger signals.
● If you can access the Utility mode, do a factory reset. The DTXPLORER will reset to its factory settings. (→ P. 23
[UTIL6 Factory Set])
● Turn the POWER switch OFF then ON while holding the [<] and [>] buttons. The DTXPLORER will reset to its
factory settings.
The sound will not stop.
● Is the [KIT11 KeyOn/Off (MIDI Key On/OFF)] setting in the MIDI Key On/Off display set to “norm”? (→ P. 22 )
When set to “norm”, some voices may sound continuously. Press the [DRUM KIT] button to temporarily stop the
sound.
The Closed Hi-Hat voice is not produced.
● Is the proper pad type selected? If the RHH130 or RHH135 is used as a hi-hat controller, the pad type must be set
to “RHH”. (→ P. 25 [TRIG2 Type (Pad Type)])
An optional 3-zone pad connected to the DTXPLORER does not produce sound when
struck.
● Only the “1 SNARE” trigger input jack on the DTXPLORER has the capacity to produce separate sounds for each
of the zones on a 3-zone pad. When connected to any other trigger input the pad can only produce sounds set for
one or two of the zones. For example, an optional 2-zone RHH130/135 hi-hat pad cannot produce the edge sound
when it is connected to the “7 HI-HAT” trigger input, which is only compatible with a monaural pad. For more
information, refer to the owner’s manual that came with the pad.
Pad controller functions do not operate properly or functions are not available when an
optional pad with pad controller functions is connected to the main unit.
● The DTXPLORER is not compatible with pad control functions.
