it, therefore, you will need to connect headphones or a DTXseries monitor system, such as the MS40DR. You can adjust the
output volume using the VOLUME [+] and [–] buttons on the
control panel.
 Connecting headphones
Plug your headphones into the [PHONES] jack (for standard
stereo audio).
 Connecting speakers
Connect your speakers to the OUTPUT [L/MONO] and [R]
jacks (for standard mono audio).
CAUTION
To prevent hearing loss, avoid using headphones at a high volume for extended periods of time.

• You can produce an open hi-hat sound by striking the hihat pad with the hi-hat controller’s pedal not depressed.
• You can produce a closed hi-hat sound by striking the hihat pad with the hi-hat controller’s pedal depressed.
• Using a hi-hat pedal, you can recreate the sound of a closing hi-hat.
 Bow shots
Striking the main surface of the hi-hat pad (i.e., the bow
section located between the cup and edge) produces a bow
shot sound.
 Edge shots
Striking the outside edge of the hi-hat pad produces an
edge shot sound.
Bow shots
 Foot-close sounds
You can depress the hi-hat controller’s pedal to create a
foot-close sound without having to strike the hi-hat pad.
 Hi-hat splash sounds
Depressing the hi-hat controller’s pedal and then immediately releasing it produces a hi-hat splash sound.
 Cup shots (PCY100 only)
When using a PCY100 as your hi-hat, you can produce a
cut shot sound by striking the cup section of the pad.
In order to do so, you will need to set the cup switch (CUP
SW) on the rear of the pad to the ON position.

Selecting & Playing a Kit
In terms of the DTX502, a “kit” is a full set of drum-sound assignments for all of the pads. Your
drum module comes with 50 different drum and percussion kits already set up.

NOTE
With certain drum kits, the Pad Song
function (page 29) will automatically

pad.
Adjusting Pad Sensitivity
A pad’s sensitivity determines how the loudness (or power) of its drum sounds changes depending
on how hard you strike it. You can adjust the sensitivity of all pads as follows to make them more
accurately reflect the dynamics of your drumming.
Hold down the [KIT] button and press either the VOLUME [+]
or [–] button.

cÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇÇd
NOTE
• Adjusting the sensitivity as shown
on the left affects the entire kit.
• If you wish to set sensitivities on an
individual pad basis, see the
description of the Gain page from
Menu Mode (page 68).
Hold
• Pressing the VOLUME [+] button increases the gain setting, making all of the pads more
sensitive. This means that louder sounds can be more easily produced with softer drumming.
• Pressing the VOLUME [–] button decreases the gain setting, making all of the pads less sensitive. This means that louder sounds can only be produced by drumming hard.
Balancing Instrument Volumes
If necessary, you can change the volumes of individual instruments (page 20). For example, you
may need to lower the volume of the kick while increasing the volume of the snare. For details on
how to do so, see the description of the Mixer settings page from Menu Mode (page 57).

Voices, instruments, and kits
Closed rim shots
Pads such as the snare, hi-hat, and cymbals (pages 16 to 18) have
been designed to trigger different voices (or sounds) depending on
the zone of the pad that is struck (see Input Sources on page 29). In
terms of the DTX502, an “instrument” is a collection of the voices
assigned to the various zones of a specific pad. A kit comprises a full
set of instruments—one for each pad.

Recording Your Performances
 Tempo
You can set the song tempo at which you wish to record your performance.
 Quantize
NOTE
Quantization is a function that corrects any small deviations in the timing of your
performance. The DTX502 can make recordings quantized based on a specified
note length. The available quantization settings are as follows.
When quantization is set to “off”, deviations in the timing of your drumming
will not be corrected.
• When 3/8, 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, or 15/8 is set as the time signature:
á, ⁄, Ö, ÖA, Ü, ÜA, or off
• When a time signature other than the above is set:
⁄, ⁄A, Ö, ÖA, Ü, ÜA, or off
Example of how quantizing works
• These recorded notes were not played exactly in time.
• However, quantization can correct these small deviations in timing as follows.

w Crosstalk
The term “crosstalk” refers to the output of spurious trigger
signals from a pad other than the one that was struck as a
result of vibration or interference between pads. Use this
parameter to specify a level for preventing crosstalk from the
pads set on the Crosstalk Pads page (TRG11). If the level of
the trigger signal from the pad indicated by q is lower than
this level whenever one of those pads is struck, it will be
treated as crosstalk and no sound will be produced. Although
higher setting values are more effective in preventing crosstalk, they can also make it difficult to play softly on multiple

(usually during rolls or fills):
• Ensure that the parameter on the Reject Time page (TRG7)
from Menu Mode is set appropriately. (See page 69.)
• Ensure that the parameter on the Crosstalk page (TRG10)
from Menu Mode is set appropriately. (See page 70.)
 If hi-hat sounds are occasionally produced even though
the hi-hat controller is configured to produce a kick drum
sound (i.e., DblBass is set to “on”), try the following.
• Increase the setting of the parameter on the Minimum Level
page (TRG5) from Menu Mode. Note that if this setting is too
high, it may become difficult to play the hi-hat. (See page 68.)
 If only one voice is triggered when two pads are played
simultaneously, try the following.
• Ensure that the parameter on the Trigger Setup page (TRG1)
from Menu Mode is set appropriately. (See page 66.)
• Ensure that the parameter on the Gain page (TRG4) from
Menu Mode is set appropriately for the pad that does not trigger a voice. (See page 68.)
• Ensure that the parameter on the Minimum Level page
(TRG5) from Menu Mode is set appropriately for the pad that
does not trigger a voice. (See page 68.)
• Ensure that the parameter on the Crosstalk page (TRG10)
from Menu Mode is set appropriately. (See page 70.)
• Ensure that the parameters on the Crosstalk Pads page
(TRG11) from Menu Mode are set appropriately. (See page

(See page 77.)
• Mute the head if it is vibrating in an irregular fashion.
• Ensure that the drum trigger is attached in the vicinity of the
rim and not near the center of the head.
• Ensure that the drum trigger makes contact only with the
drum.
 If a pad controller does not work as expected, try the following.
• Ensure that you are using a pad featuring a pad controller.
• Ensure that the parameter on the Pad Control page (KitC5)
from Menu Mode is set appropriately. (See page 62.)
• Avoid holding the rim while operating the pad controller as
this can prevent it from working properly.
Other common questions
 How do I make the drum module store its settings?
• The drum module automatically stores its system settings
whenever you turn it off using the [
] (Standby/On) button.
• Do not turn off the drum module by unplugging the power
adaptor: It will not be able to store its system settings in such
a case.

 How do I reset all of the drum module’s parameters to their
default settings?
• Use the function on the Factory Set page (System10) from
Menu Mode to restore the default settings. (See page 75.)
 How do I reset all of the drum module’s parameters to the
settings they had when I last turned it on?
• Use the function on the Restore page (System9) from Menu
Mode. (See page 75.)
 How do I stop the drum module turning off before I’m finished using it?
• Set the parameter on the Auto Power-Off page (System8)
from Menu Mode to “off”. (See page 75.)
 Why won’t a selected song play?
• If the song you selected contains no data, the drum module
will not be able to play it.
 How do I stop the drum module changing the current drum
kit when I select a different song?
• By default, your drum module always chooses the best kit for
each song. To prevent it from doing so, set the parameter on
the Kit Lock page (System1) from Menu Mode to “on”. (See
page 73.)
 How do I have my drum module choose the best drum kit
for each song?
• Set the parameter on the Kit Lock page (System1) from Menu
Mode to “off”. (See page 73.)
 What should I do if I can’t hear a song’s drum parts?
• Ensure that the drum parts have not been muted. (See page
27.)
 My training scores are strange. Why is this?
• Crosstalk could be triggering sounds unintentionally as you
drum. See the above section Crosstalk is occurring.
