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-300B 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 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
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.
• 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 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.
• 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.

Connections
Saving data
• 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.
Saving and backing up your data
• DRAM data is lost when you turn off the power to the instrument. Save the data
to external USB storage device.
• Never attempt to turn off the power while data is being written to Flash ROM
(while a “Please keep power on.” message is shown). Turning the power off in
this status 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.
Saving factory preset data
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 or keyboard.
• 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.
• When you save your original data to flash ROM, the factory preset data in some
area of the flash ROM will be lost. Before saving your original data, be sure to
save the factory preset data to external USB storage device.
Backing up the external USB storage device
• To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you
save your important data onto two USB storage devices.
• 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.
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.

DTXTREME III Owner’s Manual
Main Features
Designed primarily for professional drummers, the DTXTREME III has a Drum Trigger feature, a 64-note polyphonic Tone
Generator, a built-in Sampling feature that lets you expand the available sounds, a high-performance Metronome (Click)
feature and a built-in music sequencer that enables recording and playback of rhythm or accompaniment patterns, and even
lets you create an entire Song. The DTXTREME III is an exceptionally versatile instrument that can be used in a variety of
situations such as live performance, personal practice, and much more.
■ Drum Trigger
• Built into the unit are 15 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 DTXTREME III offers virtually the same playability, expressiveness and functionality that you get in an
acoustic drum kit.
• You can connect the DTXTREME III to an acoustic drum
kit by using drum triggers such as Yamaha DT20.
• By combining the Stack function, which lets you play multiple voices (MIDI notes) at the same time, along with the
Alternate function, which lets you play a sequence of the
Stack program, you can create complex performances and
play passages in realtime that would otherwise be impossible on conventional acoustic drums.
■ Tone Generator
• The DTXTREME III is equipped with a high-quality, 16-bit
AWM2 (PCM) tone generator with 64-voice polyphony that
produces dynamic voices or exceptional realism.
• The instrument has a wide variety of Voices including
authentic acoustic drums, unique electronic percussion,
sound effects, and normal keyboard Voices. It can also be
used as a high-quality drum tone generator along with various MIDI devices, even without using the Drum Pads.
• Also included in the unit are 50 preset Drum Kits which
contain natural, authentic sounding 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 50 sets. With this, you can set up your own
original Drum Kits using the various Drum Voices.
• The Sampling feature lets you record the audio signal to the
DTXTREME III or load the audio file from the USB storage device to create your original Voice. The created Voice
can be assigned to the Drum Kit as desired.
• The instrument is equipped with a Variation Effect which
can be used for each Drum Kit as well as Reverb, Chorus
and Master Effects which can be used for the entire DTXTREME III. In addition, an Insertion Effect for the sound
input via the AUX IN/SAMPLING IN jack is provided,
allowing you to adjust the quality of AUX IN/SAMPLING
IN sound or record an audio signal to which the Insertion
Effect is applied to the DTXTREME III in the Sampling
mode.
■ Music Sequencer (Song)
• The built-in sequencer contains a wide variety of Preset
Songs. The Mute function lets you turn on/off the rhythm
(drum & percussion sound) part, bass part and other accompaniment part individually, or turn each track on/off.
• The DTXTREME III also allows you to record your performance in real time and allows you to play along with the
Song data while muting the original drum part.
• In addition to one main Song that is controlled from the
panel, four Pad Songs can be individually controlled and
simultaneously played by trigger input from the pads.
■ High-performance Metronome (Click)
• The DTXTREME III provides a comprehensive, multifunction metronome, allowing various click settings such as
voice and tuning for each beat timing. Furthermore, you can
change the accent timing and use the Measure Break feature
that alternates click playback between on and off (mute)
repeatedly.
• The Groove Check Function checks and provides instant
feedback on your rhythmic skills—a powerful tool for
improving your technique. It includes a Rhythm Gate function that produces sounds only if your timing is accurate.
■ Chain
• Programming a Chain sequence lets you call up the Drum
Kit number, Song number and Click settings (tempo and
beat) in order during your live performance. Each step in
the programmed Chain can be called up by hitting the pad.
■ Interfaces
• The USB terminal and MIDI connectors on the rear panel
let you connect a computer and other MIDI devices to the
DTXTREME III. These allow you to play sounds from an
external tone generator or the DAW software on your computer as well as synchronize the metronome (Click) or Song
playback with an external MIDI sequencer.
• Each of the six INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT jacks can separately output any specified Drum Voice such as Snare and
Tom to send each instrument signal to an external mixer for
live performance or recording session. In addition, a Digital
Output (S/PDIF) terminal lets you transfer the DTXTREME III stereo sounds to other devices with no noise
and full digital quality.
• The instrument has a built-in AUX IN/SAMPLING IN jack
which lets you connect a CD player to the DTXTREME
III—allowing you to play the instrument along with CD
playback as well as use the powerful Sampling feature.

The OUTPUT (L/MONO and R) and INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT (1 to 6) jacks produce line level audio signals regardless of whether headphones are connected or not. These
jacks are mono phone type. To make audio connections via
these jacks, use cables with a mono phone plug for the
DTXTREME III and an appropriate plug for the other
device.
Use both OUTPUT jacks (L/MONO and R) for stereo output. If the other device has a mono input, use the L/MONO
jack only.
NOTE
• Connect a set of headphones to the PHONES jack for monitoring the stereo output (identical to that of the OUTPUT jacks). The sounds output from
the INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT jacks cannot be heard from the headphones
connected to the PHONES jack.
• Depending on the connected equipment, you may need to change the
parameter settings in the Utility mode. For details, see page 128.
The DIGITAL OUTPUT connector can be connected to a
coaxial digital input (S/P DIF) on an external audio device.
This connector digitally outputs stereo audio signals identical to those from the OUTPUT L/MONO and R jacks.
CAUTION
• Do not use the DTXTREME III at a high volume level for a long period
of time, or your hearing may be damaged. Doing so may cause hearing
loss.
External audio signals input to AUX IN/SAMPLING IN
jack can be monitored together with the DTXTREME III
sounds via headphones connected to the PHONES jack,
and can be recorded to create additional User Voices. If
necessary, you can use the [GAIN] knob on the rear panel
to adjust the gain of the input signal.

Creating a Song by Using a Computer
Recording Your Performance on the
DTXTREME III to Computer
NOTE
• The acronym DAW (digital audio workstation) refers to music software for
recording, editing and mixing audio and MIDI data, such as Cubase.
■ Setting up the DTXTREME III
On the DTXTREME III, you need to set the Local Control
parameter to “off” in order to avoid a “double” sound.
When MIDI Thru is set to “on” in a DAW/sequencer software on your computer, the note events you play on the
DTXTREME III are transmitted to the computer then
returned back to the DTXTREME III, producing a “double” sound, since the tone generator block is receiving performance data (MIDI data) from both the keyboard directly
and the computer. To prevent such a situation, you need to
separate the keyboard block from the tone generator block
of the DTXTREME III. This is why Local Control should
be set to “off.”
1 Press the [UTILITY] button to enter the
Utility mode, then press the [F5] MIDI button followed by the [SF1] SWITCH button.
■ Setting up the DAW on the computer
1 Set MIDI Thru to “on” on the DAW.
By setting MIDI Thru to “on,” the MIDI data generated
by playing the pad and transmitted to the computer will
be returned back to the DTXTREME III. As shown in
the example below, the MIDI data transmitted from the
DTXTREME III then recorded to the computer via
MIDI channel 1 will be returned back from the computer to the DTXTREME III via MIDI channel 3
according to the setting of the recording track. As a
result, the tone generator of the DTXTREME III will
sound the MIDI data generated by playing the pad as
MIDI data of channel 3.

bass part sound during playback, so you can play the drum part yourself.

The Mute function lets you turn on/off the rhythm (drum & percussion sound) part, bass part and other accompaniment part
individually, or turn selected tracks on/off. For example, you could mute the rhythm part to play rhythms yourself using the
pads, or you could play along with just the bass part sounding, or you could jam with an actual bass player with all other
accompaniment parts enabled.
The Mute status can be confirmed by checking the tabs corresponding to the [SF1] – [SF3] buttons. A part name indication
of “DRUM,” “BASS,” and “OTHER” in black characters means that the corresponding part is muted while a part name indication in white characters means that the corresponding part is turned on. Pressing these buttons toggles part playback on

Creating a Drum Kit
Quick Guide
The DTXTREME III lets you create your own original Drum Kit by assigning your favorite Drum Voice to each pad and
setting its tuning, pan, decay, reverb, etc.
<Terminology>
● Drum Voice
A Drum Voice is an percussion/drum instrument assigned to each pad. Assigning Drum Voices to pads makes up a
Drum Kit.
● Drum Kit
A Drum Kit is a collection of Drum Voices assigned to the individual pads. Selecting a Drum Kit assigns the Drum
Voice(s) to each pad.
● Voice Set
When you connect a stereo pad (referred to as a “two-zone pad” and “three-zone pad”) to the Trigger Input jack (pages
12 and 60), a different Drum Voice is triggered by the pad depending on the section you hit. A set of Voices that can be
triggered from a single pad is referred to as a “Voice Set.” You can assign a Voice Set to each pad (Trigger Input jacks).
Here, select a Voice Set for each of pads (Trigger Input jacks) to create your original Drum Kit.
1 Press the [DRUM KIT] button to enter the Drum Kit mode, then
press the [F1] PLAY button as necessary.
2 Select the desired Drum Kit by using the data dial, [INC/YES] and
[DEC/NO] buttons.
A good idea is to select a Drum Kit that is close in sound to the type of kit you intend
to create. Here, select “PRE: 01.”

Recording Your Drum Performance to a Song
In this section, you’ll learn how to record your performances and create Songs using the Song Recording features.
Recording System
• Recording can be done with any of the User Songs. You cannot record your performance to Preset Songs.
• Each User Song contains two tracks available for recording. Recording can be done to one of the tracks at a time.
• 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 as MIDI events. Also, MIDI data produced by an external MIDI keyboard connected to the MIDI IN connector can be recorded as well as MIDI sequence data received via the USB TO
HOST terminal from your computer.
• The recorded Song data is not audio data but MIDI sequence data, allowing you to freely change the tempo, Drum Kit and
Drum Voice when playing back the recorded Song.
• The tempo and time signature (Beat parameter) can be recorded only as the header data. While recording, these cannot be
recorded, although the tempo can be changed.
For more information about the Song data structure, see page 67.
Recording Method
Realtime Recording
Generally, MIDI sequencers provide two methods of recording: Realtime Recording and Step Recording. The DTXTREME III provides
only Realtime Recording. This method lets you record the performance data as it is played, allowing you to capture all the nuances of an
actual drum performance.
Replace and Overdub (Loop)
When “replace” is selected as Recording Type in the REC STANDBY display (called up via the [REC] button in the Song mode), you can
record your drum performance to a track which contains no data. Keep in mind that you cannot record your drum performance to a track
which contains any data. If you want to replace your performance data with already-recorded data, use the Clear Track Job (page 101) or
Clear Song Job (page 99) before recording.
When “overdub” is selected as the Recording Type in the REC STANDBY display (called up via the [REC] button in the Song mode),
loop recording is enabled, allowing you to add more performance data to a track that already contains data. The first ‘lap’ in the loop
recording is kept, and other parts you play in the successive laps are added on top. This method lets you build up complex phrases.
Two Tracks and Multi-channel Recording
The built-in sequencer offers two sequence tracks (Tr1 and Tr2) for each Song, and you can use them for both recording and playback.
Each track can contain any event on any MIDI channel (1 to 16). This means you can connect a keyboard to the MIDI IN connector of the
DTXTREME III and (with the help of a keyboard playing friend) record both the keyboard performance and your Drum Kit playing in real
time onto a single track.
If you merge contents on both tracks into one track and empty the other track by using the Mix Track Job (page 100), you can record the
new data to the empty track separately.

Quick Guide
Another highly useful feature of the DTXTREME III 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 provides a great way
for you to improve your technique.
NOTE
• Groove Check can only be used
during song or click playback, and
only from the Groove Check display called up via [CLICK] → [F4]

Reference
Basic Structure of the DTXTREME III
Pads (Trigger Input Sources) and Trigger Signals
Reference
Hitting the pad produces a trigger signal which includes information about how strongly you hit the pad and what section of
the pad you hit. The signal is transmitted via the cable and Trigger Input jack (pages 12 and 60) to the DTXTREME III. The
corresponding drum sound is triggered in the Tone Generator Block by this trigger signal. One trigger signal triggers one
Drum Voice when setting the pad to sound only a single sound at a time. One pad generates one type of trigger signal or multiple types of trigger signals according to the pad model, what section of the pad you hit, how you play the pad and the particular pad settings. The pad generating the trigger signal may be also referred to as “Trigger Input Source.”
Drum Kit mode
■ Mono pads generating one type of trigger signal
Mono pads such as the TP65 drum pad and PCY65 cymbal pad can generate and transmit only one type
of the trigger signal to the DTXTREME III regardless of where on the pad you hit.
Song mode
■ 2-zone pads/3-zone pads generating multiple types of trigger signal
Click mode
The PCY65S generates two different types of trigger signals and the PCY155 generates three different
types of trigger signals depending on where you hit the pad, while the PCY65 generates one type of
trigger signal regardless of the location of the hit.
Pads generating multiple types of trigger signals depending on where they are hit commonly come in
two different types: 2-zone pads or 3-zone pads. The PCY155 illustrated below as example can generate three types of trigger signals from the Pad section, Edge section and Cup section, each of which is a
separate Trigger Input Source.

■ Pad Controllers generating different types of trigger signals according to the settings
Reference
Different types of Trigger Signal are generated also by using the Pad Controller of a drum pad. When a
3-zone snare drum pad (e.g., TP120SD) equipped with a Pad Controller is connected to the SNARE
jack and the Pad Controller Type parameter is set to “snares” in the display called up via [DRUM KIT]
→ [F5] PAD → [SF1] PADCTRL, the TP120SD can generate two different types of trigger signals
according to the snappy setting’s on/off status controlled by the Pad Controller. By combining these
two types with the three types generated depending on the particular zone you hit, a total of six different types of trigger signals can be generated from the TP120SD. For details, see below.

■ Hi-Hat Controllers generating different types of trigger signals according to the pressure applied
Utility mode
Hi-Hat cymbal pads (e.g., RHH135, 2-zone pad) can generate various types of trigger signal according
to how deeply you press the Hi-Hat Controller (e.g., HH65 connected to the RHH135) as well as the
two different types of signals generated depending where on the pad you hit.
Obtaining trigger signals from an acoustic drum
Sampling mode
Chain mode
You can get trigger signals from an acoustic drum or similar percussion instrument by installing
an appropriate drum trigger product (e.g., DT10 or DT20). This lets you trigger sounds on the
DTXTREME III by playing the acoustic drum or percussion imt.
DTXTREME III Owner’s Manual
59
Reference
Basic Structure of the DTXTREME III
Trigger Setup
Reference
The DTXTREME III provides Trigger Setup parameters for optimum handling of the trigger signals transmitted from the
pads and to ensure the expected sounds are produced. The Trigger Setup parameters include sensitivity (determining how the
DTXTREME III responds to the trigger signal) and settings for avoiding problems such as double-triggering (two sounds
played at the same time) and cross-talk (mixed input signals between the jacks).
The DTXTREME III lets you create up to five original settings as User Trigger Setups as well as the seven preset Trigger
Setups.
Drum Kit mode
Pad and Trigger Input Jack
Song mode
As described above, some pads feature multiple Trigger Input Sources, each of which can generate its own trigger signal.
Depending on the jack to which the pad is connected, however, some trigger signals cannot be transmitted to the DTXTREME III. To avoid trigger signal drop outs, refer to the list below when connecting pads to the jacks on the rear panel of
the DTXTREME III.

Reference
Drum Kit mode
The tone generator block is the section of the DTXTREME III which plays the Drum Voice assigned to the Trigger Input
Source which transmits the trigger signal. Assigning each of Drum Voices to each of the Trigger Input Sources makes up a
Drum Kit. A total of 50 Preset Drum Kits are provided in the DTXTREME III. Drum Kits can be edited or created as desired
and then stored to up to 50 User Drum Kit locations in internal memory, or stored to a maximum 1584 External Drum Kits
(16 Banks x 99 kits = 1584 kits) in an external USB storage device connected to the USB TO DEVICE connector.
The DTXTREME III is a comprehensive sound source in it own right just with the built-in Preset Drum Kits; however, you
get even more out of the instrument by understanding the internal structure and creating your own original Drum Kits.
■ Drum Voices assigned to each of the Trigger Input Sources
You can create your own original Drum Kit by assigning the desired Drum Voice to each of the Trigger
Input Sources coming from the pad. For instructions, see page 61.

One important thing to understand is that separate Drum Voices are assigned to MIDI note numbers
when using the Stack/Alternate function (page 86). While you may not need to pay attention to MIDI
note numbers when using other functions, using the Stack/Alternate function requires that you set the
MIDI note number instead of the Drum Voice.

The Sampling function lets you record audio signals such as vocals and CD playback sound to the DTXTREME III and play
those sounds by hitting the drum pads. Recording audio signals to the DTXTREME III is referred to as “sampling.” In addition
to being able to record audio signals directly to the DTXTREME III, you can also import existing audio data (in WAV or AIFF
file format) in the File mode. This lets you use audio you’ve recorded and edited on computer with the DTXTREME III. Once
you’ve recorded or loaded the audio, you’ll need to assign it to a User Voice which can be selected in the Drum Kit mode.
Reference
Sampling
CAUTION
• The User Voices created in the Sampling mode reside temporarily in the optionally installed DIMMs (pages 76 and
147). Because data contained in DIMM is lost when the power is turned off, you should always save the User
Voices created by recording, editing, and using Jobs to a USB storage device before turning off the power. For
information on how to save, see pages 54 and 114.

[SAMPLING] → [F6] REC → Trigger Mode
The Trigger mode is a convenient feature in Sampling that lets you determine how recording is
started—manually or automatically, based on the audio level.
Reference
● Starting recording manually
[SAMPLING] → [F6] REC → Trigger Mode = manual
Regardless of the audio input signal level, sampling starts soon after you press the [F6] START button
in the Sampling Standby display.
Drum Kit mode
● Starting recording when the input signal exceeds the Trigger Level
[SAMPLING] → [F6] REC → Trigger Mode = level
After pressing the [F6] START button in the Sampling Standby display, sampling starts as soon as a
strong enough audio signal is received. The threshold for this audio-triggered start is called the Trigger
Level (explained in the illustration below).

Drum Kit mode
A song consists of two sequence tracks (Tracks 1 and 2) and header data.
Each of two sequence tracks contains MIDI sequence data of 16 MIDI channels (channel 1 – 16). The DRUM, BASS and
OTHER parts correspond to MIDI channels 10, 3, and the other channels respectively. These parts can be muted, regardless
of which tracks they are on, by pressing the [SF1], [SF2] and [SF3] buttons.
The header data at the beginning of the song contains general song information such as Drum Kit number, tempo and time
signature (BEAT), as well as program change and volume data for each MIDI channel. These types of data are automatically
transmitted to the tone generator block when you select a song.
When song playback is started, this data is transmitted to the tone generator block for the sounds to be played back.

Playback of each Song can be started by hitting the specified pad as well as pressing the [>/■] (Start/Stop) button. The function that lets you start/stop playback of a Song by hitting the specified pad is referred to as “Pad Song” (Page 93). Each Drum
Kit can feature up to four Trigger Input Sources to which a Pad Song is assigned. Some Preset Drum Kits provide special
Pad Song settings.
Since the DTXTREME III can play one main Song (normally started via the [>/■] button) and up to four Pad Songs at a
time, you can play short phrases, such as a guitar riff or a chorded brass hit by hitting pads while playing the drum kit along
with the main Song.

■ COMPRESSOR & EQ
Click mode
Trigger mode
Compressor is an effect commonly used to limit and compress the dynamics (softness/loudness) of an audio signal.
For signals that vary widely in dynamics, such as
vocals and guitar parts, it “squeezes” the dynamic range,
effectively making soft sounds louder and loud sounds
softer. When used with gain to boost the overall level, this
creates a more powerful, more consistently high-level
sound. Compression can be used to increase sustain for
electric guitar, smooth out the volume of a vocal, or bring a
drum kit or rhythm pattern further up-front in the mix.

Reference
Also called “reverberation,” this refers to the sound energy
remaining in a room or closed space after the original
sound stops. Similar to yet different from echo, reverb is
the indirect, diffuse sound of reflections from the walls and
ceiling that accompany the direct sound. The characteristics of this indirect sound depends on the size of the room
or space and the materials and furnishings in the room.
Reverb Effect types use digital signal processing to simulate these characteristics.
Depending on the particular chorus type and parameters,
this can make a voice sound “larger,” as if several identical
instruments were playing in unison, or it can give a voice
greater warmth and depth.

Basic Structure of the DTXTREME III
Internal Memory and File Management
Reference
As you use the DTXTREME III, you’ll create many different kinds of data, including Drum Kits, Drum Voices, Songs and
Chain programs. This section describes how to maintain the various types of data and use the memory devices/media for
storing them.
Drum Kit mode
Data Lost and Retained When Power
is Turned Off
Song mode
The chart below lists the data types you can create on the
instrument and the internal memory locations to which they
are stored, permanently or temporarily. Keep in mind that
certain types of data are lost when you turn off the power
and you should always prepare a USB storage device for
use BEFORE you start creating or editing data.

→ Will be lost when turning the power off!
DIMM
→ Will be lost when turning the power off!
CAUTION
File mode
• Among the data types above, the User Song and User Voice data
should be saved to a USB storage device connected to the USB TO
DEVICE connector before turning the power off. Otherwise, the created data will be lost.
Internal Memory
Below are explanations of the basic terms used in the
Memory Structure illustration on the next page.
● Flash ROM
ROM (Read Only Memory) is memory designed specifically for reading out data, and as such data cannot be written to it. Unlike conventional ROM, Flash ROM can be
overwritten – allowing you to store your own original data.
The contents of Flash ROM are maintained even when the
power is turned off.
● DRAM
RAM (Random Access Memory) is memory designed specifically for data writing and data reading operations. There
are two different kinds of RAM, depending on the condition for storing the data: SRAM (Static RAM) and DRAM
(Dynamic RAM). The created data stored on DRAM is lost
when the power is turned off. Because of this, you should
always store any data residing in DRAM to the USB storage device before turning off the power.
● DIMM (sold separately)
Utility mode
DIMM modules must be installed in order for using the
Sampling function or for loading audio data (User Voice/
WAV file/AIFF file) to the instrument. As with DRAM
described above, the created data stored on DIMM is lost
when the power is turned off. Because of this, you should
always store any data residing in DIMM to the USB storage device before turning off the power.
● User Memory
Chain mode
Sampling mode
The internal memory to which all the data you have created
can be stored, permanently or temporarily is referred to as
“User Memory.”
Among various types of data created on the DTXTREME
III, data stored on Flash ROM can be maintained even if
you turn the power off. On the other hand, data on DRAM
(User Song) and DIMM (User Voice) should be saved to
the USB storage device before turning the power off
because these types of data will be lost when you turn the
power off.

each selected Trigger Input Source is assigned.
In a real acoustic drum kit, some drum sounds cannot physically be played simultaneously, such as open and closed hihats. You can prevent Drum Voices from playing back simultaneously by assigning them to the same Alternate Group. Up to
127 Alternate Groups can be defined. You can also select “off”
here if you wish to allow the simultaneous playback of sounds.
Settings

NOTE
• Concerning the Drum Voices assigned to the same number (1 – 124)
of the Alternate Group, only one of these Voices will be played back following the last-hitting priority. Concerning the Drum Voices assigned to
the “HHOpen” and “HHClose,” a special rule (below) is applied.
• Playing the Voice assigned to “HHOpen” will not stop the sound of the
Voice assigned to “HHOpen” or “HHClose.” Playing the Voice
assigned “HHClose” will stop the sound of the Voice assigned to

When the INPUT display is called up, this parameter determines whether or not each selected Trigger Input Jack
responds to MIDI Note Off messages. When the SOURCE
display is called up, this parameter determines whether or not
each selected Trigger Input Source responds to MIDI Note
Off messages.
This parameter is normally set to off since the sounds of many
Drum Voices naturally decay and stop without the need for
Note Off messages. This parameter should be set to on when
the current Drum Voice has a sustained, non-decaying sound,
so that you can stop the sound by sending MIDI note off messages to the internal tone generator. The timing the MIDI note
off message is transmitted to the internal tone generator is
determined by the Gate Time parameter in the STK/ALT display. You can also use the Hold Mode parameter to control
MIDI Note Off messages (page 94).

Reference
Drum Kit mode
The Stack function lets you play several Drum Voices simultaneously by hitting only a single pad, while the Alternate function lets you play different Drum Voice(s) alternately.
In addition, the Stack function lets you play chords by using pitched Voices (called “Normal Voices” in Yamaha synthesizers)
which can be called up by setting the CH (MIDI channel) to a number other than 10 (this channel is normally used by the
DTXTREME III to play the Drum Voice) and assigning the Voice number to the corresponding channel in the display called
up via [F6] OTHER → [SF3] MIDI.
Note that the Stack/Alternate parameters can be set only for each Trigger Input Source.
NOTE
• In the internal tone generator of the DTXTREME III, MIDI channel 10 is exclusively used for the Drum Voices. The MIDI messages generated by your drum performance will be transmitted to the internal tone generator over MIDI channel 10.

[SF3] PADSONG
NOTE
• The Pad Song plays back according to the tempo specified in the
Song mode or Click mode. The DTXTREME III has only the single
tempo value.
• Keep in mind that hitting the pad softly may not start the Pad Song.
Make sure to hit the pad more strongly than a specified level.
• If both the Pad Function (which can be set in the display called up via
the [UTILITY] → [F2] PAD → [SF2] PADFUNC) and Pad Song are
assigned to the Trigger Input Source, the Pad Song setting is canceled.
• Depending on the selected Pad Songs and normal Song, an unexpected sound may be produced. This is because each Song may be
transmitting different setups to the internal tone generator via the
same MIDI channel. If you plan on using two or more Songs together,
you should make sure that the MIDI channels used for the Songs are
all set to different values.
Refer to the Trigger Input Source List on

Determines whether the current Trigger Input Source is
played back monophonically or polyphonically. If “mono” is
selected, triggering the same Voice continuously will stop the
previous sound, then start the same Voice sound. Note that the
previous sound is stopped by a note off message, unlike the
Mono/Poly parameter in the display called up via the [DRUM
KIT] → [F2] VOICE → [SF4] OTHER. Accordingly, the
RcvKeyOff parameter for the Voice (current Trigger Input

This parameter is normally set to “off,” so that that hitting the
same pad (current Trigger Input Source) only triggers (starts)
the corresponding Voice sound. On the other hand, when set
to “on,” hitting the same pad alternately both triggers and
stops the corresponding Voice sound. Because note off messages are used for stopping the Voice sound, you need to set
the RcvKeyOff parameter to on in the display called up via

[TRIGGER]
Reference
This chapter explains the Trigger mode called up via the [TRIGGER] button.
In the Trigger mode, you can set the parameters related to the Trigger Signals received from the pads or Drum Triggers
(such as Yamaha DT20) which are connected to the Trigger Input jacks. These settings let you optimize the DTXTREME III for best operation and response to the Trigger Signals. If you are using drum triggers attached to acoustic
drums, or pads you’ve bought separately, you’ll need to adjust the sensitivity and assign Voices to the individual Trigger
Input Sources.
This mode also has settings that help prevent crosstalk* and double triggering*.
Drum Kit mode
* Crosstalk
A triggering problem in which the vibration generated by hitting a certain pad may cause unwanted triggering in
another (usually adjacent) pad.
* Double triggering
A triggering problem in which two or more Trigger Signals may be generated simply by hitting a certain pad once.
Song mode
NOTE
• Creating an appropriate Trigger Setup is necessary to get optimum results and obtain the expected response and sound when
you hit the pads. One good way to ensure this is to find an exisiting Trigger Setup close to your favorite one, then edit it.
• Once you have found or created your favorite Trigger Setup, it is a good idea to assign the Trigger Setup number to the TriggerNo
parameter in the display called up via the [UTILUITY] → [F1] GENERAL → [SF4] STARTUP. In this way, you can have your favorite Trigger Setup number automatically called up every time you turn the power on.

File Mode
[FILE]
This chapter explains the File mode called up via the [FILE] button.
The File mode provides tools for transferring data (such as Songs and User Voices) between the DTXTREME III and
external storage devices, such as a USB storage device or hard disk drive connected to the USB TO DEVICE terminal.
Reference
Terminology in the File Mode
Drum Kit mode
■ File
Song mode
Just as with a computer, various data types such as Drum
Kit, User Voice, Song and Trigger Setup created on the
DTXTREME III can be treated as a file and saved to an
external USB storage device. Each file features a file name
and file extension.
■ File Name
Click mode
Just as with a computer, you can assign a name to the file in
the File mode. Files having the same name cannot be saved
in the same directory.
■ File extension
Trigger mode
The three letters following the file name (after the period)
such as “.mid” and “.wav” are referred to as a file “extension.” The extension indicates the type of file and cannot be
changed by the panel operation of the DTXTREME III. The
File mode of the DTXTREME III supports ten different
extension types, according to the particular data. For
details, see page 113.
File mode
■ File size
Utility mode
This refers to the memory amount of the file. The file size is determined by the amount of data saved to the file. Generally, the size of
an audio file (AIFF, WAV, etc.) is much larger than the size of a
MIDI file. On the DTXTREME III, the size of file including the
User Voices (consisting of audio signals obtained via the Sampling
function) is much larger than other files. File sizes are indicated in
conventional computer terms by B (Byte), KB (Kilo Byte), MB
(Mega Byte) and GB (Giga Byte). 1KB is equivalent to 1024 Byte,
1MB is equivalent to 1024KB, and 1GB is equivalent to 1024MB.

DTXTREME III Owner’s Manual
■ Device
Refers to a memory storage unit (such as a hard disk) to which the
file is saved. The DTXTREME III can handle and mount various
types of USB storage devices connected to the USB TO DEVICE
terminal.
■ Directory (Folder)
This is an organizational feature on a data storage device
(such as hard disk), allowing you to group data files
together according to type or application. Directories can be
nested in hierarchical order for organizing data. The “directory” is equivalent to the computer term “folder.” The File
mode of the DTXTREME III allows you to assign a name
to a directory as with files. Please note that the directory
name does not contain an extension.
■ Format
The operation of initializing a storage device (such as a hard
disk) is referred to as “format.” The File mode of the DTXTREME III allows you to format the USB memory storage
device connected to the USB TO DEVICE connector. The
format operation erases all data from the target memory
device and automatically creates an “AUTOLOAD” directory.
■ Save/Load
“Save” means that the data created on the DTXTREME III
is saved to an external memory device as a file, while
“Store” means that the data created on the DTXTREME III
is stored to internal memory. “Load” means that the file on
the external memory device is loaded to internal memory.

NOTE
• Only Format 0 Standard MIDI Files (SMFs) can be loaded.
• When a Standard MIDI file song (format 0) is loaded, parameters
such as volume, pan, and program change located at the very top of
the song (001:01:000) are handled as header data and applied to the
settings on the Voice Job display called up via [SONG] → [F2] JOB →
[SF4] VOICE. The settings on the Voice Job are not transmitted to the
internal tone generator or the external MIDI device even when the
Song is started although they are transmitted to the internal tone generator or the external MIDI device when the Song is selected.
Because of this, the following problems may occur.
• When a Song that includes settings such as volume, pan and program change somewhere in the middle is played back with the
Repeat setting “on” (in the display called up via [SONG] → [F1]
PLAY, or the display called up via [SONG] → [F2] JOB → [SF1]
SONG → 03: Song Name, Tempo, Repeat) by pressing the [>/■]
button, the sound originally at the top of the Song may differ in subsequent playbacks.
• When a Song that includes settings such as volume, pan and program change somewhere in the middle is played back with the
Repeat setting “on” (in the display called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F5]
PAD → [SF3] PADSONG) by using the Pad Song function (page
93), the sound originally at the top of the Song may differ in subsequent playbacks.
To avoid the problems described above, move the parameter settings
at the top of the SMF Song to a few clocks later on your computer or
MIDI sequencer before executing the Load operation in the File
mode. These parameter settings will then not be handled as header
data, meaning that they will be properly transmitted to the internal
tone generator or external MIDI device when the Song is started.

Appendix
Optional DIMM Installation
This section explains how to install DIMM memory modules to the DTXTREME III.
Installation Precautions
WARNING
• Before beginning installation, switch off the power to the instrument and
connected peripherals, and unplug them from the power outlet. Installation or removal of any devices should be started ONLY after the instrument (and the optional hardware) returns to normal room temperature.
Then remove all cables connecting the instrument to other devices.
(Leaving the power cord connected while working can result in electric
shock. Leaving other cables connected can interfere with work.)
• Be careful not to drop any screws inside the instrument during installation. (This can be prevented by keeping the optional units and cover
away from the instrument while attaching). If this does happen, be sure
to remove the screw(s) from inside the unit before turning the power on.
Loose screws inside the instrument can cause improper operation or
serious damage. If you are unable to retrieve a dropped screw, consult
your Yamaha dealer for advice.
• Install the optional units carefully as described in the procedure below.
Improper installation can cause shorts which may result in irreparable
damage and pose a fire hazard.
• Do not disassemble, modify, or apply excessive force to board areas
and connectors on optional units. Bending or tampering with boards
and connectors may lead to electric shock, fire, or equipment failures.
CAUTION
• It is recommended that you wear gloves to protect your hands from
metallic projections on optional units and other components. Touching
leads or connectors with bare hands may cause finger cuts, and may
also result in poor electrical contact or electrostatic damage.
• Be careful of static electricity. Static electricity discharge can damage
the IC chips on the DIMM. Before you handle the optional DIMM, to
reduce the possibility of static electricity, touch unpainted metal parts or
a ground wire on the devices that are grounded.
DIMM Type and DIMM Configuration
• Yamaha recommends that you purchase DIMMs that
conform to the JEDEC* standard. Please be aware, however, that conformance to this standard does not constitute a guarantee that the DIMMs will operate correctly
on the DTXTREME III.
* JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council)
sets standards for terminal configurations within electronic devices.
• Use only 168-pin DIMMs of 64, 128 or 256 MB capacity (synchronized DRAM; PC100 or PC133).
• When installing DIMMs, make sure to install them in a
matched pair of the same capacity. You cannot install
only one module and leave the second memory socket
open. Also make sure each DIMM in the pair is of the
same manufacturer and the same type. DIMMs of different makers and configurations may not work together.
• When purchasing DIMMs, make sure that the DIMM
design does not utilize more than 18 memory chips per
module. (DIMMs comprised of more than 18 chips do
not operate correctly on the DTXTREME III.)
64MB x 2 = 128MB
128MB x 2 = 256MB
• Handle the optical units with care. Dropping or subjecting them to any
kind of shock may cause damage or result in a malfunction.
• Do not touch the exposed metal parts in the circuit board. Touching
these parts may result in a faulty contact.
256MB x 2 = 512MB
• Be careful not to misplace any of the screws.
• Do not use any screws other than what are installed on the instrument.
Use of incorrect screws can cause damage.
Compatible DIMMs
The DTXTREME III does not necessarily support all commercially available DIMMs. Yamaha cannot guarantee
operation of DIMMs that you purchase.
Before purchasing DIMMs, please consult your Yamaha
dealer, or an authorized Yamaha distributor (see list at end
of the Owner’s Manual) for advice, or visit the following
website:

Troubleshooting
No sound, even when the pad is hit.
● Check whether or not the lamp of the TRIGGER INDICA-
TOR lights when you hit the pad. If not, make sure the
pads and Drum triggers (Yamaha DT20, etc.) are connected correctly to the input jacks of the DTXTREME III.
(page 12)
● Is the DTXTREME III properly connected to headphones
or an external audio device such as an amplifier and
speaker ? (page 19)
● Is there a problem with the cable you are using ?
● Check whether or not the power of the external audio
device connected to the DTXTREME III is turned on. Also
check whether or not the volume level of the external
audio device is adjusted properly.
● Check whether or not the Pad Function is assigned to the
pad you hit. The Pad Function parameter setting can be
confirmed in the display called up via [UTILITY] → [F2]
PAD → [SF2] PAD FUNC. If a specific function is
assigned to the corresponding pad, hitting the pad triggers no sound.
● Check the Trigger Bypass parameter (page 126) in the
display called up via [UTILITY] → [F2] PAD → [SF3]
TRGBYPS. If this parameter is set to on, no sound is produced even if you hit any pad.
● Check the Local Control parameter (page 130) in the display called up via [UTILITY] → [F5] MIDI → [SF1]
SWITCH. If this parameter is set to off, the internal tone
generator will not accept the Trigger Input Signals.
No sound or the sound volume is lower than
expected.
● Check whether or not the volume sliders (page 31) on
the front panel of the DTXTREME III are set properly.
● Check the Volume parameter (page 80) in the display
called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE → [SF2] OUTTUNE. If this parameter value is too low, raise the value.
● Check the Volume parameter (page 95) in the display
called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F6] OTHER → [SF1] COMMON. If this parameter value is too low, raise the value.
● Check the Volume parameter (page 124) in the display
called up via [UTILITY] → [F1] GENERAL → [SF1] TG. If
this parameter value is too low, raise the value.
● Check the Gain and Velocity Curve parameters (page
109) in the display called up via [TRIGGER] → [F3]
SENS. No sound may be produced depending on the
settings on this display.
● Check the OutputSel parameter (page 81) in the display
called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE → [SF2] OUTTUNE. If this parameter is set to a value other than
“L&R+ph,” the sound of the corresponding pad is not
output via the PHONES jack and OUTPUT jacks.
● Check the Attack and Decay parameters (page 83) in
the display called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE →
[SF3] EQ-TONE. No sound may be produced depending
on the settings of these parameters.
● Check the Effect and Filter settings. No sound may be
produced especially depending on the Filter settings.
Appendix
150
DTXTREME III Owner’s Manual
The external MIDI tone generator produces no
sound.
● Is the MIDI cable (connector) properly connected? (page
20)
● Make sure the MIDI Transmit Channels of the DTXTREME
III match the MIDI Receive Channels of the connected
external MIDI tone generators. For information about the
MIDI settings in the Drum Kit mode, see page 96. For
information about the MIDI settings during Song playback, see page 103.
● Check whether or not a specific drum instrument of the
external tone generator is properly assigned to the corresponding MIDI note number (generated by hitting the
pad connected to the DTXTREME III). If no instrument is
assigned, no sound is produced on the external tone
generator even if you hit the pad.
● Make sure the Trigger Bypass parameter (page 126) is
set to off in the display called up via [UTILITY] → [F2]
PAD → [SF3] TRGBYPS.
● Check the MIDI IN/OUT parameter (page 131) in the display via [UTILITY] → [F5] MIDI → [SF3] OTHER. If this
parameter is set to “USB,” the DTXTREME III cannot
communicate with the external MIDI tone generator connected via the MIDI cables.
Unexpected sound is produced.
● Check the Pad Type parameter in the display called up
via [TRIGGER] → [F2] TYPE. If the combination between
the Input and the Pad Type is not appropriate, unexpected sound may be produced.
● When the external tone generator connected to the DTXTREME III via MIDI produces unexpected sound, check
whether or not the Voice setting for the tone generator’s
MIDI channel equivalent to the Transmit channel of the
DTXTREME III is properly set.
● Make sure you have not plugged the monaural phone
plug or monaural pad when the power is still ON. This
sets the rim switch ON on the DTXTREME III. Turn the
power OFF and ON again.
Sound is distorted.
● Are the Effect settings appropriate? Use of an Effect at
certain settings may produce distortion.
● Check the Filter and Resonance parameters (page 83) in
the display called up via the [DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE
→ [SF3] EQ-TONE. Distorted sound may be produced
depending on the settings of these parameters. Excessively high filter resonance settings can cause distortion.
● Is the MASTER VOLUME set so high that clipping is
occurring?
Wrong pitch or unexpected pitch.
● Check the Tune parameter (page 124) in the display
called up via [UTILITY] → [F1] GENERAL → [SF1] TG. If
this parameter is set to a value other than “0,” unexpected sound may be produced.
● Check the Tune parameter (page 80) in the display
called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE → [SF2] OUTTUNE. If this parameter is set to a value other than “0,”
unexpected sound may be produced.
Appendix
Troubleshooting
● Check the Effect Bypass settings (page 89) in the dis-
plays called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F4] EFFECT. If
Bypass is turned on, the corresponding Effect is not
applied to the sound.
● Check the Switch parameter (page 128) in the display
called up via [UTILITY] → [F3] EFFECT → [SF2] MEF. If
this parameter is set to “off,” the Master Effect is not
applied to the sound.
● Check the Reverb Send, Chorus Send and Variation
Send parameters (page 80) in the display called up via
[DRUM KIT] → [F2] VOICE → [SF2] OUT-TUNE. If these
parameters are set to minimum values close to 0, it may
sound as if no Effect is being applied to the sound.
● Check the Reverb Send and Chorus Send parameters
(page 95) in the display called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F6]

● Is there enough Sample Memory available? (page 136)
● Is the Sampling Source setting appropriate? (page 136)
● Is the Trigger Mode set appropriately? (page 137)
Computer/MIDI instrument problems.
● Check the MIDI IN/OUT parameter (page 131) in the dis-
play called up via [UTILITY] → [F5] MIDI → [SF3]
OTHER. If you are connecting a computer to the DTXTREME III via USB, this parameter should be set to
“USB”; if you are connecting a MIDI device to the DTXTREME III via MIDI, this parameter should be set to
“MIDI.”
Cannot save data to the external USB storage
device.
● Has the USB storage device you’re using been properly
formatted? (page 123)
● Is the USB storage device being used write protected?
(Write-protect should be set to off for saving data.) (page
21)
● Is there enough empty memory space in USB memory?
To check the amount of free capacity in USB memory,
press the [SF6] button in the File mode.
The Trigger Signal from the acoustic drum is not
stable.
● Check whether or not the Drum Trigger (Yamaha DT20,
etc.) is attached to the acoustic drum with adhesive
tape.
● Check all the items of “No sound or the sound volume is
lower than expected” above.
● Is the cable securely connected to the Drum Trigger
(Yamaha DT20, etc.) jack?
Double triggering problem.
● If the connected pads have an output or velocity control
volume, adjust them. It may be a good idea to lower
them.
● Check the Gain parameter (page 109) in the display
called up via [TRIGGER] → [F3] SENS. It may be a good
idea to lower the value of this parameter.
● When using acoustic drums, are you using Drum Triggers (trigger sensors) made by manufacturers other than
Yamaha? To ensure optimum operation, use only Yamaha
Drum Triggers.
● When using acoustic drums, check whether or not the
head of the drum is generating irregular vibration. If so, it
may be necessary to mute the head.
● When using acoustic drums, make sure the Drum Trigger
is attached near the rim (above the bearing) and not near
the center of the head.
● When using acoustic drums, make sure that nothing is
touching the Drum Trigger.
● Try increasing the value of the Reject Time parameter
(page 110) to avoid double triggering. Note that the
sound of a roll or flam cannot be properly produced if
this parameter value is too high.
Crosstalk problem (unexpected sound is produced by other pads)
● When using acoustic drums, place the Drum Trigger
away from any nearby drum.
● Try adjusting the Reject Level parameter (page 110) in
the display called up via [TRIGGER] → [F4] REJECT.
● If the pads have a level adjustment knob, adjust them.

(drums) are hit.
● Try raising the value of the Gain parameter (page 109)
for the pad (Trigger Input) that is not producing sound in
the display called up via [TRIGGER] → [F3] SENS.
● Try lowering the value of the Reject Level parameter
(page 110) for the pad (Trigger Input) that is not producing sound.
● Check the Alternate Group parameter (page 84) for both
of the pads in the display called up via [DRUM KIT] →
[F2] VOICE → [SF4] OTHER. If both of the pads are
assigned to the same Alternate Group, change the setting of either pad to a different value.
The sound volume is louder than expected.
● Check the Gain parameter (page 109) in the display
called up via [TRIGGER] → [F3] SENS. Try lowering the
value of this parameter.
● Check the velocity curve settings (page 110) in the display called up via [TRIGGER] → [F3] SENS. Set the
appropriate velocity curve.
● Check the Trigger Velocity parameter (page 94) in the
display called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F5] PAD → [SF4]
TRIGGER. If this parameter is set to “127,” for example,
the maximum volume sound is produced regardless of
how soft your pad hitting may be. Change the value of
this parameter to the appropriate one.
● Are you using a pad made by a manufacturer other than
Yamaha? Depending on the manufacturer, output levels
might be too large.
The sound does not stop.
● Press the [EXIT] button to stop the sound. The sound
may continue when the Receive Key Off parameter is set
to “off” in the display called up via [DRUM KIT] → [F2]
VOICE → [SF4] OTHER.

● Check the Pad Controller Type parameter (page 92) in
The Closed Hi-Hat sound is not produced even if
you press the Hi-Hat Controller by foot.
● Check the Pad Type parameter (page 109) in the display
called up via [TRIGGER] → [F2] TYPE. If the RHH135 or
RHH130 is connected to the HI-HAT CONTROL jack as
well as the HI-HAT jack, the Pad Type parameter with the
INPUT set to “hihat” should be set to “RHH135” or
“RHH130.”
No sound results even if you hit the edge or cup
section of the cymbal pad. The choke functions
do not work.
● Check the Pad Type parameter (page 109) in the display
called up via [TRIGGER] → [F2] TYPE. If this parameter
is set to an improper value (such as the model name of a
snare or tom pad) and the INPUT parameter at left is set
to ride (to which the ride cymbal pad is connected),
select the appropriate value (model name of the ride
cymbal).
Hi-hat Splashes are not produced.
● Is the foot controller connected to the HI-HAT CONTROL
jack?
● Check the Foot Splash Sensitivity parameter (page 126)
in the display called up via [UTILITY] → [F2] PAD →
[SF1] HI HAT. If this parameter is set to “off,” the hi-hat
splash sound will not be produced.
