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. 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.

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.

• 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.

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

• 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.

• 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.

Saving data

• 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.

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 Y-shaped 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 Y-shaped 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.

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.

Challenge Mode

The DTXPRESS IV automatically evaluates the accuracy of

100 times 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.

* 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, 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. If your playing accuracy result (%) was

90% or more, the level is raised one step, and if accuracy is 60% or less, the level is lowered one step.

* 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.

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

• 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.

• Tempo [Range] 30 to 300

Sets the click’s tempo ( q

=) when recording.

• 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

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.

How Quantize Works (an example)

Recorded notes were not played in time.

Now, let’s start recording…

1

Select the Song you want to record

Press the [SONG] button to display the Song Select display, select a User Song number (64–83).

If you want to play along with a Preset Song and record it, select the desired song (1–63). In this case, the lowest numbered empty User Song will automatically be selected for recording.

CAUTION

If a User Song containing data is selected, any recorded data previously existing is overwritten and lost.

The Input Source indicates the trigger data that is transmitted by the pads or drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) that are connected to trigger input jacks

1SNARE to 8KICK/9 of the DTXPRESS IV.

When mono pads TP65, KP65, PCY65/130, DT10/20, etc. are used, one

Input Source is assigned to one input jack. When stereo pads RHH130,

PCY65S, etc. are used, two Input Sources (pad input and rim switch input or 2 kinds of pad inputs, etc.) are assigned to one input jack.

When three-zone pads TP65S, TP120SD/100, PCY150S/130SC, etc., are used, three Input Sources (pad input and two rim switch inputs, etc.) will be assigned to one input jack.

Rotate the jog dial to select the Drum Kit you want to use as a starting point for your original Drum Kit. A good idea is to select a Drum Kit that is close in sound to the type of kit you intend to create.

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

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, 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 these reasons or others, that setup can be saved to one of the Trigger Setup locations (8–11).

8 Trigger Setup Edit

*1 Three-zone function (pad voice x 1, rim voice x 2) is available if a three-zone compatible pad such as the TP65S, etc. is connected to the

1SNARE, 5RIDE, or

6CRASH input.

For producing closed rim shots, the

“TP2/SnrA” has a high sensitivity setting on rim 1, while the “TP2/SnrB” has a high sensitivity setting on rim 2.

The same voice is assigned to “TP2/

Rim 2

Tom ” and “TP2/SnrA” and the left and right rim sensitivities are set to the same level.

Rim 1

*2 Rim1 and rim2 sounds on the “TP2/SnrB” are reversed from those on “TP2/SnrA”. This provides left-handed drummers with a proper setting when using a left-handed setting.

*3 When a stereo pad such as the TP80S is connected to the

1SNARE, 5RIDE, or 6CRASH input, “TP3-A” will produce the sound that is assigned to rim 1, and “TP3-B” will produce

the sound assigned to rim 2 (p. 28)

*4 When using an RHP series stereo pad, connect the pad to

Input

2TOM1/10, 3TOM2/11, 4TOM3/12, or 8KICK/9, and set the pad type in “™tom1”, “£tom2”, “Ωtom3”, or

“äkick” input to “RHP ~ pad ” and the pad type in “ƒπpad10”,

“ƒƒpad11”, “ƒ™pad12”, or ““pad9” to “RHP ~ rim .”

*5 To use the BP80 as a stereo pad, connect the pad to Input

2TOM1/10, 3TOM2/11, 4TOM3/12, or 8KICK/9.

TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)

TRG3 ~ ƒsnare ~~ 0%

”Gain=65MVl= ~ 12‚

Gain [Range]

0–99

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 type is set in [TRG2 Type (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the value will be necessary.

* Some pads are equipped with a sensitivity adjustment knob.

For details, refer to the owner’s manual that came with the particular pad.

MVI [Range]

1–127

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 will be.

* This value is automatically set after the appropriate pad type is set in [TRG2 Type (Pad Type)]. Some fine-tuning of the value will be necessary.

Prevents double triggering from occurring in the input jack assigned in the upper half of the page. After an event is detected, further events will be automatically muted for a certain length of time. The larger the value, the longer time events will be muted.

TRG6 RejLvlAll (Rejection Level)

TRG6 ~ ƒsnare ~~ 0%

0–9

Prevents crosstalk from occurring in the input jack assigned in the upper half of the page. Events triggered by other pads (input jacks) that are of a lower input value than what is set here will not be triggered for a certain length of time. Larger values require a greater input level in order to produce a trigger event.

”RejLv1=3Frm=56‚

RejLvl [Range]

8 Trigger Setup Edit

After an triggering event occurs from the pad that is assigned in the “Frm=” setting, the pad assigned in the upper half of the display will not sound for a certain length of time unless the input level is greater than the value set here. Larger values will require a greater input level in order to produce a trigger event.

A “Frm=56” setting assigns both trigger input jacks 5 and 6.

Trobleshooting

The DTXPRESS IV does not produce sound, or does not recognize trigger inputs.

● Are the pads or drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) properly

connected to the DTXPRESS IV’s trigger input jacks? (p. 10,

11)

● Is the DTXPRESS IV properly connected to headphones or an

external audio device such as an amplifier, speaker, etc.? (p.

12)

● Check the position of the power switches and volume levels of any connected external audio devices, such as an amplifier, speaker, etc.

● The volume knob on the rear panel may be turned down (p.

15).

● Is the input level displayed when the pad is hit? (p. 38 [TRG3

Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])

● Is the gain set too low? (p. 38 [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum

Velocity)])

● The volume setting on the Drum Kit Select display’s “KIT3 Vol-

ume” page (p. 29) may be set to “0.”

● Is there a problem with the cable you are using?

● The drum voices for both layers

˙

Owner’s Manual

Trobleshooting

The trigger sound is not stable. (For acoustic drums)

● Check the entry “Produces sound but the sensitivity is too low

(volume is low)” above.

● Try selecting a larger pad type setting (DT snare → DT HiTom

→ DT LoTom → DT Kick). (p. 37: [TRG2 Type (Pad Type)])

● Is the Drum Trigger (Yamaha DT20, etc.) improperly attached with duct tape? (Is there any old adhesive remaining on the head?)

● Is the cable securely connected to the drum trigger (Yamaha

DT20, etc.) jack?

Double triggering is produced.

● Pads with a level adjustment knob should be adjusted (lowered).

● Is the gain set too high? (p. 38: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum

Velocity)])

● Use the self-rejection setting. (p. 38: [TRG5 RejTime (Self

Rejection Time)])

(KP65) Is the pad type for the input jack to which the KP65 is

connected set to Kick Pad? (p. 37: [TRG2 Pad Type])

● Are you using drum triggers (trigger sensors) made by other manufacturers? Too large a signal can result in double triggering.

● Is the head causing irregular vibrations? It may be necessary to mute the head.

● Is the sensor attached close to the center of the head? Move the sensor closer to the rim.

● Is the sensor in contact with anything else?

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.

● The maximum polyphony of 32 voices might be exceeded. In the Drum Kit Select dispaly’s “KIT15 Key Assign Mode” page

(p. 31), set the “KeyAssign” value to “semi” or “mono.”

When two pads (drums) are played only one sound is heard.

● Raise the gain setting of the pad (trigger input) that is not pro-

ducing sound. (p. 38: [TRG3 Gain, MVI (Minimum Velocity)])

● Lower the rejection setting of the pad (trigger input) that is not

producing sound. (p. 38: [TRG6 RejLvlAll (Rejection Level)])

● Lower the specified rejection setting of the pad (trigger input)

that is not producing sound (p. 38: [TRG7 RejLvl (Specified

Rejection Level)])

● Are both pads (trigger inputs) set to the same alternate group?

(p. 31 Step 14: [KIT14])

The sound is always loud.

● Is the minimum velocities minimum value set too high? (p. 38:

[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.

The pad controller function does not work

● Have you connected a pad equipped with a pad controller, such as the TP100 or TP120SD?

● Are the pad controller settings properly set? (p. 17)

The Closed Hi-Hat voice is not produced.

● Is the proper pad type selected? If the RHH130 is used as a hi-

hat controller, the pad type must be set to “RHH.” (p. 37: [TRG2

Pad Type])

The edge or cup sections of the cymbal pad do not produce sound when struck. The choke functions do not work.

● Is the proper pad type selected? Select the appropriate pad

type for the kind of cymbal pad you are using. (p. 37: [TRG2

Pad Type])

Foot Splashes are not produced.

● Is the foot controller connected to the HI HAT CONTROL jack?

● Adjust the detection time of foot splashes. (p. 16: Adjusting the

Hi-hat)

I need to restore the original factory settings of the instrument.

● Use the Factory Set function (p. 35) to reset the DTXPRESS IV

internal settings to the initial factory settings.
