Features

The DTXTREME is designed for professional drummers and sports flexible drum-triggering features, a 64-note polyphonic tone generator that conforms to the GM System Level 1 standard, a music sequencer that enables the recording and playback of rhythm or accompaniment patterns, as well as the creation of an entire song. The instrument is ideal for live performance, rhythm training, music creation and recording in a studio, and so on.

Drum Triggering

Flexible external controls via 16 trigger input jacks, hi-hat controller jack, and footswitch jack. These jacks can connect to any Yamaha triggering gear including traditional DTX/

DTXPRESS drum pads, DT series trigger pickups, and the latest drum pads with real drum heads.

Combined with the latest drum pads, the DTXTREME can enable buzz roll that require high sensitivity and a wide dynamic range.

Freely-adjustable trigger inputs. Each trigger input can be edited to suit the input device

(type) connected to the jack, how sensitive it should be, and so on.

Freely-assignable voices. Using MIDI note numbers, each trigger input can be assigned a specific voice from the internal tone generator. A set of trigger-to-voice configurations can be stored as a “drum kit.” The DTXTREME stores up to 40 drum kits internally and up to

99 externally on Memory Card. Also, the DTXTREME comes with 60 preset drum kits.

Each trigger input can be set to play several MIDI note numbers simultaneously or sequentially, enabling the playing of chords or melodic phrases, or even drum patterns with a single pad.

Some drum kits are available with position sensing. Position sensing lets you recreate the sound of an actual snare drum with added realism.

Tone Generator

A variety of high-quality sounds (voices) in a 64-note polyphonic AWM2 (PCM) tone generator that conforms to the GM System Level 1 standard.

Preset voices include 1757 drum or percussion sounds and 128 keyboard sounds. The

DTXTREME drum voices include, of course, the great Yamaha drums (Maple Custom series, Recording Custom series, and so on), plus the latest samples and looped sounds, promising to inspire a drummer's creative mind.

Each drum voice can be edited using various parameters for effects, volume, pan, pitch, and so on.

A special snare drum voice offers detailed edits like choice of head material, strainer tension, muffling (muting) method in addition to normal edits.

Effects

High-quality digital reverb and chorus are provided as System effects. A versatile pair of separate Insertion effects is also provided with 44 effect types.

The localizer provides a three-dimensional (3D) stereo effect that simulates natural sound when monitored with stereo headphones.

7

Music Sequencer

Simple and easy 2-track sequencer that can be used for the real-time recording of your performance or external sequence data as user songs. Each track can contain several

MIDI channels (1 to 16). Since the DTXTREME can sync with an external sequencer, you can start recording by simply hitting a drum pad or the Start button on the DTXTREME or an external sequencer. The sequencer also offers step recording so that you can create or edit a song step-by-step while watching the displayed information on the DTXTREME.

A wide variety of 164 preset songs. Also, the DTXTREME stores up to 32 user songs internally and up to 99 externally on the Memory Card.

Step recording feature allows for entering or editing the song data step by step.

Selective playback feature. As you can simply mute the drum or any other part in a song while controlling the volume of each part, this is ideal for a “minus-one” setting for practice and so on.

Groove check feature that measures timing accuracy when hitting the pads. This is also useful for practicing and so on.

Click feature for playing with the sequencer. You can choose a click sound separately from the drum kit settings.

Easy Operations and Performance controls

Chain play feature that can play drum kits and songs in a specified order.

Backlit LCD display and LED display. Also, 5 Data Control knobs on the DTXTREME front panel ensure accessibility to parameters shown in the LCD display.

Stereo outputs and 6 individual outputs that are convenient for sending a specific sound

(snare drum, bass drum, tom, or so on) in parallel to an external mixer for further processing.

Top-panel volume slider controls that easily adjust the volume balance between instruments or parts (drum kit, accompaniment, and click). These slider controls can even be used to adjust the reverb return level for an entire drum kit, and the reverb send level for each instrument in the kit. This simplifies the process of adjusting the reverb settings to suit the acoustics of your surroundings. Two more dedicated slider controls are also provided for adjusting headophones and click (metronome) volumes.

Interfaces and Expandability

MIDI (IN, OUT, THRU) and TO HOST terminals offer connectivity between the

DTXTREME and external MIDI devices and a personal computer for further applications when using these devices together. However, the TO HOST and MIDI terminals cannot be used at the same time (you need to select which to use by the HOST SELECT switch).

AUX IN stereo jack that can be connected to an audio player (CD, MD, tape, etc).

Playback on that player can be monitored using headphones and output from the stereo outputs of the DTXTREME.

Memory Card (SmartMedia) compatible. You can use the Memory Card to store and read data including drum kits, songs, and chain. The Memory Card can also be used to supply waveform data in AIFF format for sound expansion on the DTXTREME.

HI-HAT CONTROL jack

Connect a foot controller for hi-hats (Yamaha HH80A or HH60) to this jack. You can also specify the foot controller function for MIDI control in Drum Trigger Edit mode.

MIDI IN, THRU, and OUT ports

MIDI IN can receive MIDI messages sent from an external MIDI device. MIDI THRU can output (redirect) the same MIDI messages received at MIDI IN. MIDI OUT can output MIDI messages generated in the DTXTREME, such as a drum kit performance or operations using panel controls, to an external MIDI device. Using these MIDI jacks, you can configure a large MIDI system including the DTXTREME, other MIDI tone generators, sequencers, and so on.

INPUT ATTENUATION switches

Each DIP switch corresponds to a trigger input jack and adjusts the input level of a trigger signal from a drum pad connected to that jack. This is useful when connecting different types of trigger devices (drum pads and trigger sensors) to the

DTXTREME. Raise the DIP switch to boost (increase) the trigger signal level.

Trigger inputs: 9/10 KICK, 11/12, 13/14, 15/16

Each of these trigger input jacks is designed to accept two separate trigger signals from two “mono” pads connected using a Y-type cable with a stereo phone plug at the

DTXTREME end and two mono phone plugs at the pads' ends.

If connected using a mono cable (with a mono phone plug at each end), the trigger signal will be routed only to oddnumbered inputs (9, 11, 13, or 15).

n

Due to crosstalk (interference), it is not practical to input two separate trigger signals by connecting a pad with a rim switch

(Yamaha TP80S or PCY80S) to one of these trigger inputs using a stereo cable (with a stereo phone plug on each end). Hitting the pad will generate two trigger signals together, resulting in two different voices playing in “sync.” Except when you intend for such effects, simply connect that pad using a mono cable, or disable the “trigger-to-MIDI-note-number” setting for evennumbered inputs (10, 12, 14, or 16) if you still use a stereo cable to connect that pad.

INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT 1 – 6 jacks

Each of these jacks can output any specified voice (such as snare drum, bass drum, tom, or so on) separately so that you can send it to other external equipment such as a mixer for further processing. Any voice can be assigned to the individual output in Drum Kit Voice Edit mode. If you want to output the click sound from one of these outputs, it is possible in Utility mode.

RHP120SD, RHP120, RHP100, RHP80, TP80S or PCY80S) connected using a stereo cable. If connected using a mono cable, only the trigger signal generated on the pad (not on the rim) will be accepted.

n

If connecting a “stereo” pad using a mono cable, avoid reconnecting the cable while the DTXTREME is turned on.

Otherwise, the switch function may not work properly due to the reversed phase on the trigger input jack. If this is the case, turn the DTXTREME off, and then on after reconnection.

After connecting pads, go to the [UT 6] TrgSet and set the pad type (page 73, Reference

Section).

Inputs 1 to 8 are all stereo inputs. You can connect the TP80S, RHP80/100/120(SD) and other pads which have a rim.

Inputs 9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and 15/16 are all stereo jacks with separate trigger inputs for each jack’s left and right channels. It is recommended you use one of these inputs when connecting a BP-80 bar pad. If you use a stereo-to-dual-mono splitter cable, two trigger inputs can be used. Even if you connect a TP80S, PCY80S or other pad with a rim switch, the rim sound will not be output. However, if you connect an RHP80/100/120 (SD) using a stereo cable, both the pad and rim sounds will be output.

The INPUT ATTENUATION switch applies to inputs 1 to 16 and lets you select sensitivity.

When set to “L,” the sensitivity is lower and this setting applies to all pads. When set to

“H,” the sensitivity is higher and this setting applies to the DT10 and other drum triggers.

You can connect a HH80S, HH80, HH60 or other hi-hat controller to the FOOT SWITCH jack and use it as a kick pedal (page 38, Reference Section).

Using Drum Triggers and Pads

Optional Yamaha DT-series drum triggers are ideal for connecting acoustic drums to the

DTXTREME as triggering devices. Combining these triggers with drum pads, you can set up a hybrid set of electronic and acoustic drums. First set up the drum pads and acoustic drums equipped with DT triggers, and then connect each pad or trigger to the appropriate trigger input jack on the DTXTREME rear panel.

n

Regarding trigger sensitivity, a trigger input jack connected to the DT trigger should be configured for the drum trigger (page 26, Reference Section).

Attaching a Drum Trigger Pickup

To use acoustic drum as a triggering device, a Yamaha DT-series drum trigger needs to be attached. Attach it properly as described below.

To the Bass Drum

Attach the sensor portion of the trigger near the rim on the batter head. Ensure that the sensor does not touch the rim.

Sticky tape

To the Snare Drum

Attach the sensor portion of the trigger near the rim at the opposite end to the player, on the batter head. Ensure that the sensor does not touch the rim.

Sticky tape

To the Tom

Attach the sensor portion of the trigger near the rim on the shell. Ensure that the sensor does not touch the rim or other parts in the drum kit (snare drum, other toms, percussion instruments, or so on).

19

Detaching a Drum Trigger Pickup

You need to detach the trigger when replacing the drum head. Before removing the head, unstick the sensor portion of the trigger carefully using a knife or similar object. Be careful not to pull the cord.

Handling the Drum Trigger Pickups

• First remove dust or oily dirt from the batter head or drum shell (where you will stick the sensor) using alcohol or a detergent, and then stick the sensor.

• Cover the sensor and cord with tape to avoid disconnection that may be caused by drum vibrations.

• Double-triggering may occur if the drum head is tuned to produce a sustained sound or irregular vibrations. If this is the case, change the tuning or mute the head to avoid unnecessary vibrations. It is recommended to use the ring mute.

• When sticking the sensor back on, remove old remnants of tape completely and then re-attach it using new tape. Such remnants may cause problems regarding trigger sensitivity (no or bad triggering, double triggering, or so on).

Connecting to Audio Equipment

To output the DTXTREME sounds for recording or live performance, it should be connected to an external audio device such as mixer or recorder. Simply connect the master output jacks (OUTPUT L (MONO) and R) on the DTXTREME rear panel to the audio equipment.

You can then play the DTXTREME sounds from speakers or record them to a recorder.

Since the DTXTREME not only has the master outputs, but also 6 individual outputs

(INDIV.OUT 1-6), you can separately control up to 8 parts when they are sent to an external mixer using all these outputs.

n All audio output jacks are mono except the stereo PHONES jack. Use a standard 1/4" phone plug for audio connections.

n When connecting the master output to a mono audio device, connect only to the OUTPUT L (MONO) jack.

21

Using the AUX IN Jack

The AUX IN jack on the DTXTREME rear panel offers simple mixing of an external stereo audio source (CD, MD, tape, or so on) and the DTXTREME sounds. Mixed sounds will be output from the OUTPUT L/MONO and R jacks. The AUX IN VOL control can adjust the output volume of the external audio, making it easy to balance the DTXTREME sounds and the external audio.

Connecting to MIDI Equipment

The DTXTREME can connect to external MIDI devices using MIDI cables. Through MIDI connections, the DTXTREME can control external MIDI devices or, conversely, external MIDI devices such as a keyboard or sequencer can control (play) the DTXTREME tone generator.

Here are several MIDI connection examples.

n Each example described below needs the HOST SELECT switch on the DTXTREME rear panel to be set to

“MIDI” to enable the outputting of performance information generated on the DTXTREME.

In this example, the DTXTREME outputs performance information from MIDI OUT while outputting from MIDI THRU the same MIDI data received from the MIDI sequencer.

n Always use a standard MIDI cable (up to 15 meters in length) for MIDI connections. When connecting using MIDI THRU, do not connect more than 3 MIDI devices in series. To connect more devices together, consider using a MIDI THRU box to connect the devices in parallel. Note that too long MIDI cables or too many THRU connections may result in malfunction or communication errors between the MIDI devices.

23

Connecting to a Personal Computer

Since the DTXTREME’s TO HOST port can directly connect to the computer’s serial port, the

DTXTREME can transfer MIDI data to/from the computer while working as a MIDI interface for other MIDI devices.

You can connect the DTXTREME to the computer in two ways:

1.

DTXTREME’s TO HOST directly connected to the computer’s serial port.

2.

DTXTREME’s MIDI IN and OUT connected to an external MIDI interface that is connected to the computer's serial port.

Actual connection methods are different depending on the computer platform.

Checking the Groove of the Rhythm

(Groove Check feature)

When playing along to a song, you can check the timing of your performance. There are two ways of doing this, as explained below.

● Single shot timing: Measure the timing accuracy for each hit of the pad. This is useful when checking the groove of a particular instrument in the drum kit, such as the snare or kick drum.

● Average: Measures the timing accuracy for each hit of the pad from the start of the Song, giving the result as a running average. This is useful when checking the groove of all instruments in the drum kit.

Creating a Drum Kit

You can create your own original drum kits by choosing the drum voices to be included, then applying tuning, attack, decay, reverb level and other settings. You can then store your drum kit as one of up to 40 User Drum Kits. A further 99 drum kits can be stored on the

Memory Card. Here, we’ll go through the basics of creating a drum kit.

n The following procedure explains the settings for a snare drum voice.

1. Select a drum kit

PLAY

KIT=P1 SONG=P1 TEMPO BEAT CLICK

MAPLE Horizon =107 4/4 n If you are creating a new drum kit similar to existing one, it’s useful to select it for fast creation.

2. Enter Drum Kit Voice Edit mode and use the Page and buttons to go to the

[Voice1] page

2 Select the voice

Now we will assign a snare drum voice. First select the type of voice, then choose one of the voices within the selection. Let’s choose the “AcSnr1” type and, from the selection, the

“MCA55” voice.

n If you select a Special Snare voice, you can select the shell material and mute settings, just like with a real acoustic drum.

n You can also monitor the sound assigned to the pad by pressing the sound button on the front panel.

Playing a GM Sound

The DTXTREME’s tone generator is GM-compatible so it is also possible to assign GM sounds, as explained below.

First, enter Drum Kit Trigger Edit mode and go to the [TrigMIDI2] page. Select a channel other than 10 and assign a MIDI note number to each input. If a keyboardtype sound has been selected, set the Gate Time parameter to a large value. Now, enter Drum Kit Voice Edit mode and go to the [MIDI1] page. Set the Transmit parameter for the selected channel to “On” and choose a voice by entering its PC# value (Program Change Number).

5. Adjust the volume

[Voice1] Type Voice 42* Volume Tuning

38 D1 AcSnr1 MCA55 110 - 1.00

By adjusting the volume level, you can set level of each pad relative to the others.

41

6. Adjust the tuning (pitch)

[Voice1] Type Voice 42* Volume Tuning

38 D1 AcSnr1 MCA55 110 - 1.00

A value of “+1” raises the pitch by one semitone. You can adjust the pitch in the range “-24” to “+24.”

9. Adjust the volume balance of a 2-layer voice

[Voice3] Pan Layer Filter Q

38 D1 C 0 0 0

If the selected voice consists of two or more layers (i.e., two or more different sounds), you can adjust the relative volume levels of each layer. A value of 0 represents a volume level balance of 50:50.

n This parameter is not available for voices that consist of just a single layer (voice).

42

10. Adjust the tone using the filter

[Voice3] Pan Layer Filter Q

38 D1 C 0 0 0

1 2

1 Filter (Cutoff frequency)

2 Q (Quantity)

By raising the cutoff frequency, the tone of the drum voice becomes brighter. By adjusting the Q (Quantity) parameter, the frequencies around the cutoff frequency are boosted.

11. Use Page and buttons to go to the [Voice4] page

12. Adjust the attack (the time for the volume to rise from zero) and the decay (the time for the volume to fade to zero)

[Voice4] Attack Decay

38D 1 0 +13

1 2

1 Attack

2 Decay

By adjusting the attack value, you can make the voice sound crisper or softer. By adjusting the decay value, you can lengthen or shorten the time for the sound to fade to zero.

13. Use Page and buttons to go to the [Voice6] page

43

14. Select an output and set the effect path

[Voice6] Output RevSend ChoSend

Using MIDI Devices

The DTXTREME has MIDI IN, OUT and THRU connectors and a TO HOST connector. Either can be used for communicating with external MIDI devices. Using the MIDI connectors, you can use the DTXTREME’s pads to play sounds on an external synthesizer, or use a computer or sequencer to control the DTXTREME. Therefore, you can use the DTXTREME as one part of a much larger music setup.

About MIDI

MIDI is the acronym for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface,” and is a globally standardized protocol for sharing performance and sound data with other MIDI devices and computers. All devices that conform to this standard are able to communicate with each other, regardless of manufacturer or device type.

The DTXTREME has the following MIDI functions. See page 22 in this manual for details about connecting external MIDI devices and computers.

53

Transmission and Reception of Bulk Data

You can output the DTXTREME’s internal settings as bulk data to an external MIDI device or computer. For example, you can create data backups by sending data to an external

MIDI storage device such as the Yamaha MDF3 MIDI Data Filer. You can also send data back from such a device to the DTXTREME.

➝[UT9] in Utility mode (page 75)

Simultaneous Performance with External MIDI Devices

You can control external MIDI devices from the DTXTREME’s front panel, such as starting or stopping playback of an external sequencer via the Start/Stop button on the

DTXTREME’s front panel. The DTXTREME can also synchronize to an external MIDI clock signal when playing back songs.

➝[UT17] in Utility mode (page 79)

Transmission and Reception of MIDI Data

The DTXTREME’s tone generator can play back sounds when receiving performance or song data from an external MIDI device or keyboard, and you can also record this data on the DTXTREME. Conversely, you can play back sounds on an external tone generator when transmitting data by hitting the pads on the DTXTREME.

When selecting a different drum kit, the DTXTREME can send program change information specific to that drum kit to an external MIDI device and therefore change its selected sound. The DTXTREME can also receive program change information from an external MIDI device and switch to the appropriate drum kit.

Hi-hat control information can also be output from MIDI OUT. Also control change can be output when using a footswitch or foot controller as a MIDI controller.

Other MIDI transmission and reception features are also available. See the Reference Section manual for further details.
