Before Playing
Inserting Batteries
Remove the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the
instrument and insert six 1.5V SUM-3, R-6, "AA" size or
. equivalent batteries (sold separately), making sure that the
polarities are placed as directed in the compartment.
Replace the cover, ensuring that it locks securely in place.
As the battery voltage drops below the required operating
level, the following changes will occur in the operation of
the DD-6:
1. Tom, conga and other drum-type sounds will become
distorted. This distortion increases the louder you play.
2. The STYLE/ BEAT/ TEMPO display @ will dim, and
its brightness will vary when you play the pads.
Caution:
- When the batteries run down, replace them with a com-
plete set of six new batteries.
NEVER mix old and new batteries.
+ To prevent possible damage due to battery leakage,
remove the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be
used for an extended period of time.
Optional Power Adaptors
Power Adaptor PA-1/ PA-1B/ PA-3 is available for household
current. No other adaptor is usable, so when you purchase a
power adaptor please ensure that itis model PA-1/ PA-1B/
PA-3.
For An Even Bigger Sound
Although you'll be happy with the sound from the built-in
speaker, you can enhance and create an even more satisfy-
ing sound if you connect the DD-6 to a bigger speaker sys-
tem. Try using your home stereo or other PA system.
Taking Care Of Your
Digital Percussion
Your Digital Percussion DD-6 Will remain in excellent playing
condition if care is taken concerning the following.
1. When you use AC power, be sure to use the optional PA-
1/ PA-1B/ PA-3. Before use, read the adaptor instructions
carefully.
2. Do not subject the unit to physical shock, and avoid plac-
ing anything heavy on it.
3. Do not place the instrument near any heating appliance,
or leave it inside a car in direct sunlight for any length of
time. Direct sunshine can raise the interior temperature of
a car with closed doors and windows to as high as 80°C
(176°F). Temperatures in excess of 60°C (140°F) can
cause physical and/or electrical damage, as well as physi-
cal deformation or discoloration.
4. Use a dry damp cloth for cleaning. Never use solvents
such as benzine or thinner.

* Once the maximum volume is reached, it is not possible
to create higher volume by striking the percussion pads
any harder. The use of unnecessary force in playing the
percussion pads can cause mechanical damage to the
instrument as well as spurious triggering of unwanted
sounds.
PAD ASSIGN
This function allows you to assign any of the 20 percussion sounds indicated by the Instrument Symbols @) at the bottom of the
DD-6 control panel to any of the percussion pads.
1. Press and hold either the < or p> PAD ASSIGN button
D . depending on the direction you want to move through

a pad can be accessed most quickly by moving backward
from the current instrument, for example, press and hold
the «{ PAD ASSIGN button.
PAD ASSIGN
| pr
. While holding the appropriate PAD ASSIGN button, tap
the pad to which you want to assign a new instrument.
Each time the pad is tapped, the next instrument in the
specified direction ( < ог № ) will be heard.
. Release the € or p> PAD ASSIGN button immediately
after you hear the instrument you want to assign to the
pad. The newly assigned instrument will now be heard
whenever that pad is played — until a new instrument is
assigned.
The preset pad assignments (see previous page) are
restored whenever the POWER switch is turned ON.
Some of the instruments are reverse sounds. This is sim-
ilar to the effect of recording the sound on tape and play-
ing it backwards.

far left of the instrument list) at any time by holding both
the dl and D> PAD ASSIGN buttons simultaneously and
striking a pad.
