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
• 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.
• 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.
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.
(3)-10
DTXPRESS IV Owner’s Manual
• 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.
• 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.
4
• 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.
• 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 using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug
the power cord from the wall AC outlet.
• 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.
• Do not place objects in front of the instrument's air vent, since this may prevent
adequate ventilation of the internal components, and possibly result in the
instrument overheating.
1/2
• 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.
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.
• 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.
Saving data
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
• Never attempt to turn off the power while data is being written to Flash ROM
(while a "now storing..." message is shown). Turning the power off in this state
results in loss of all user data and may cause the system to freeze (due to
corruption of data in the Flash ROM). This means that this instrument may not
be able to start up properly, even when turning the power on next time.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel.
If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from
the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service
personnel.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel.
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.

Main Features
The DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV 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
• 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 DTXPRESS IV has the operability, functionality and performance that is virtually equivalent to an acoustic drum kit.
• You can connect the DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV as to what sound to play on the
built-in tone generator and how loud the sound should be played.
■ Tone Generator
• The DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV 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.

NOTE
• If you want to replace some of the pads from the DTXPRESS IV
Standard Set / Special Set, refer to the operation on page 36 (Trigger Setup Edit) after the above setting is done, to make sure that
the settings (such as sensitivity) are appropriate for each pad.
● About Connecting Pads
• The DTXPRESS IV’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. 38).
• Pad-controller-equipped pads like the TP120SD, TP100,
etc., can be connected to Trigger Input jack 1SNARE.
• Three-zone pads like the TP65S, PCY150S, PCY130SC,
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 2TOM1/10, 3TOM2/11, 4TOM3/12 jacks correspond to a two-trigger input that uses a stereo jack for L and
R. A parallel 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 parallel cable (stereo plug—mono jack x 2) can be used to input two trigger
signals.
Also, if the KP65 kick pad is connected to the DTXPRESS
IV’s input jack 9 with a stereo cable, the external pad input
jack on the KP65 can be used as the input for Input jack 9.
• In addition to the 8KICK/9 jack, the 2TOM1/10,
3TOM2/11, and 4 TOM3/12 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 DTXPRESS IV 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.
● Challenge Mode
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.
* 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.
Your hit
Tempo
Average inaccuracy
in timing (-9 to +9)
* 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 (99
hits), the DTXPRESS IV 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.
• 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)
* Tempo
Tempo is not shown in the Challenge mode display. To
change the tempo, hold the [SHIFT] button and rotate the
jog dial. You can adjust the tempo for the song or click
from 30 to 300 (the tempo is shown in the LED display).

The DTXPRESS IV automatically evaluates the accuracy of
hits over six grade levels from A to F and sets the range 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.

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 DTXPRESS IV’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…

This function allows you to assign different voices to the

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.

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 DTXPRESS IV 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 DTXPRESS IV set, you’ll need to adjust the sensitivity and assign voices to the individual trigger inputs. 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
* 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.
If you are using pads or drum triggers other than those that came
with your DTXPRESS IV Set (Standard Set/Special Set), or if
you need to solve problems with double triggering or crosstalk,

TRG6
Adjusts the input gain (sensitivity) for the input jack assigned in
the upper half of the page.
Setting a larger value lets a smaller input level from the pad create sound.
* This value will be automatically set after the appropriate pad

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

[TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])
● Are you using an appropriate velocity curve? (p. 38: [TRG4
VelCurve (Velocity Curve)])
● Are you using a pad made by another manufacturer? Depending upon the manufacturer, output levels might be too large.
The DTXPRESS IV does not receive any switch or trigger signals.
● If you can access the Utility display, perform the Factory Set
operation. The DTXPRESS IV will reset to its factory settings.
(p. 35: [UTIL8 Factory Set])
● Turn the POWER switch OFF then ON while holding the [ <]
and [>] buttons together. The DTXPRESS IV 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. 30 Step 11: [KIT11])
Press the [DRUM KIT] button to temporarily stop the sound.
● Is the sensor in contact with anything else?
The pad controller function does not work
Crosstalk (trigger interference from different inputs) is
produced.
● Is the gain set too high? (p. 38: [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. 38: [TRG6 RejLvlAll (Rejection Level)])
● If crosstalk is produced with a specific trigger input, try using
specific rejection. (p. 38: [TRG7 RejLvl (Specified Rejection
Level)])
● Try placing sensors (Yamaha DT20, etc.) away from nearby
drums.
Sounds are cut when you play continuously.
