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
Water warning
• Do not place the power 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.
• 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 (page 57) only. Using the wrong adaptor
can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or
wet conditions, place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or
glasses) containing liquids which might spill into any openings. If
any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the
power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet.
Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service
personnel.
• 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.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
Do not open
• This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not attempt
to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately
and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
If you notice any abnormality
• When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the
power switch and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. Then
have the device inspected by Yamaha service personnel.
• The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged.
• It emits unusual smells or smoke.
• Some object has been dropped into the instrument.

possibly cause overheating in the outlet.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might
accidentally fall over.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet,
always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can
damage it.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are
using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs,
immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from
the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is
still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not

on the panel. This could cause physical injury to you or others,
damage to the instrument or other property, or operational failure.
• 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 use the instrument/device or headphones 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.
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.

• The DTX700 remains charged and draws a small
amount of power even when the
(Standby/On)
button is set to the Standby position. For this reason, you should always unplug the power adaptor
from the wall socket if the instrument will not be
used for an extended period of time.
• Whenever connecting other devices, ensure that the
cables you use have plugs that match the input or output connectors on those devices.
• Before making connections, furthermore, you should
also turn the volume on the other devices fully down.

Making Connections
Although the DTX700 is exceptionally powerful and versatile
all by itself, connecting it to a computer via USB allows for
even greater convenience and flexibility. When connected in
this way, MIDI data can be freely transferred between the drum
trigger module and the computer, allowing the DTX700 to be
used as an input device for computer-based music software. In
this section, you’ll learn how to make the necessary connections.
NOTICE
NOTE
• As the DTX700 has no built-in speakers, you will need to
connect headphones or an external amplifier and speakers
in order to hear it. For details, see page 13.
• A USB cable is not included. In order to connect your
DTX700 to a computer, choose a USB A-B cable of no more
than 3 meters in length.

NOTE
• Information on system requirements is also provided on
the above web page.
• The USB-MIDI driver may be revised and updated without prior notice. Before installing, visit the above web
page to confirm the latest related information and ensure
that you have the most up-to-date version.

Application
[Definition] DAW Application
DAW is an abbreviation of digital audio workstation. DAW applications such as Cubase can be
used to record, edit, and mix audio and MIDI
data on a computer.
The following section will describe how to connect your
DTX700 to a computer and prepare for recording performances using a DAW application running on it. Normally,
when playing in order to record on a computer, performance
data produced by striking the pads is first sent to the computer and then returned to the instrument in order to play its
internal tone generator. If local control of the DTX700 is
turned on at this time, performance data will also be sent
directly to the tone generator, and as a result, the direct and
returned data will overlap, making it sound as if the pads are
being struck twice.
Basic Operation
We will now describe how to setup parameters for recording
your performances, first on the DTX700, and then within the
DAW application.
 Preparing the DTX700
Using the following procedure, turn off DTX700 local control.
1
Use [MENU] m [Utility] m [MIDI] to access the
MIDI parameters, and set LocalCtrl to “off”.
2
Press the [STORE] button to store your new
setting.
With local control turned off in this way, performance data
produced by striking the pads will not be sent to the internal
tone generator.
Sound is
produced
 Setting DAW-Application Parameters
Within your DAW application, turn on MIDI Thru. This setting ensures that, when performance data is being recorded
on a track within your application, it is also returned to the
external MIDI system.
Within DTX700
On
Trigger
Off
For example, let’s assume that performance data is being
recorded on Track 3 by your DAW application. In addition,
we’ll also assume that MIDI Channel 1 has been set for the
return of performance data. If MIDI Thru is now turned on
for Track 3, the DAW application will return the performance data to the DTX700 on MIDI Channel 1 as it is being
recorded, and the instrument’s internal tone generator will
sound as if it is being played directly.
Internal tone
generator
No sound is
produced.
Local Control Settings
Most DAW applications allow MIDI Thru to be turned on,
and therefore, you can setup your system as shown below
with local control of the DTX700 turned off and the DAW
application returning performance data to the tone generator.
In this way, performances can be recorded in comfort without each strike being heard twice.
IN
• For details on how to turn on MIDI Thru, refer to the manual that came with your DAW application.
• If local control on the DTX700 and MIDI Thru within your
DAW application are both turned off, no performance
data will be sent to the internal tone generator, either
directly or indirectly. As a result, no sound will be produced.

As described below, you can setup your DTX700 to operate
as a multi-timbral tone generator for your DAW application.
In this way, you can easily integrate the instrument’s highquality MIDI tone generator into your music-production
setup. For details on how to connect the DTX700 to your
computer, see page 52.

The DTX700 either produces no
sound or is unable to detect the
pads being struck.
• Ensure that the pads are correctly connected to the DTX700’s trigger input jacks.
• Ensure that the DTX700 is properly connected to headphones or an external audio system,
such as an amplifier and/or speakers. (See page 13.)
• Ensure that the amplifier and/or speakers connected to the DTX700 are turned on and are not
set to the lowest possible volume.
• Ensure that the [MASTER] knob is not turned down. (See page 19.)
• Ensure that the cables you are using are in good condition.
The DTX700 produces sound
but the sensitivity (i.e., volume)
is too low.
• If any of your pads feature a pad controller, ensure that they are turned up.
• Ensure that the sliders for the sounds in question are turned up. (See page 11.)
Double triggers are being produced.
If the pad in question features a pad controller, try turning it downward.
