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 (page 110) 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 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 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
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
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.
• 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.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.

Features of the DTX-MULTI 12
12 built-in pads and versatile input connectors
Powerful USB expandability
The DTX-MULTI 12 features 12 built-in pads that have been
conveniently arranged for ease-of-use in a wide variety of performance situations. On the rear panel, furthermore, you will
find input connectors for five additional Yamaha electronic drum
pads and drum triggers. By combining separately-sold pads
and drum triggers with a central DTX-MULTI 12 unit, you can
create your own compact electronic drum kit and also integrate
acoustic drums. Furthermore, with a foot switch jack and a hihat controller jack also included, you can use foot switches and
controllers to select drum kits, to simulate hi-hat playing techniques, and to enhance your performances in a wide range of
other ways.
Using the USB TO HOST port and a USB cable (sold separately), the DTX-MULTI 12 can be conveniently connected to a
computer. This affords you a much greater level of efficiency
and speed when recording performances and carrying out
many other music-production processes using computer-based
DAW (digital audio workstation) software such as Cubase AI,
which is bundled with your DTX-MULTI 12.
A USB TO DEVICE port allows USB memory devices to be
plugged in for flexible data exchange. This allows you to store
your DTX-MULTI 12 settings on such a device as standard
computer files; furthermore, you can also import WAV or AIFF
audio files from a USB memory device and assign them to individual pads, thus adding a unique, highly personal flavor to
your performances.
High-quality sound
In addition to a broad spectrum of voices from the top-of-theline DTXTREME III Drum Trigger Module, the DTX-MULTI 12
also features many newly-sampled percussion sounds and versatile, ready-to-use effect sounds for a grand total of 1,277
voices. What’s more, this rich variety of sounds also includes
timpani, marimba, vibraphone, and many other chromatic percussion instruments. Together with great-sounding Reverb and
Chorus effects that can be applied to entire drum kits, the DTXMULTI 12 also features a Variation effect unit that can be used
to enhance individual voices in many exciting ways.
Wide selection of patterns
The DTX-MULTI 12 comes complete with 128 ready-to-use
melodic and rhythmic phrases (including 3 demos) known as
patterns. You can easily start and stop patterns by simply striking pads to which they are assigned, greatly adding to the
expressiveness of your performances. In addition, you can also
record your own performances as patterns and assign them to
pads in order to conveniently add original grooves to your drum
kits.

Owner’s Manual
Versatile triggering for enhanced musical possibilities
With the Stack function, each pad can produce up to four different sounds; meanwhile, the Alternate function triggers different
sounds each time a pad is struck. In addition, you can setup
the instrument to automatically select different sounds based
on how hard or soft you strike the corresponding pad or in
response to foot-switch operation.
The DTX-MULTI 12 can also be setup to allow sounds to be
silenced when a hand is pressed down on the pad and to allow
different sounds to be produced when a hand is pressed down
on a pad as it is struck. And you are not restricted to drumsticks
alone! The DTX-MULTI 12 can be easily setup to support a rich
variety of hand playing styles.

sequencer, via a MIDI cable. When connected in this way, you
can play the internal tone generator and control a wide range of
parameters using another MIDI device. Meanwhile, the MIDI
OUT connector is used to send performance data from this
instrument to other devices in the form of MIDI messages.
@4 FOOT SW Jack
The Foot Switch jack is used to connect an optional foot switch
(FC4, FC5, FC7, etc.) or hi-hat controller (HH65, etc.) to the
DTX-MULTI 12.
@5 HI-HAT CONTROL Jack
The Hi-hat Control jack is used to connect an optional hi-hat
controller (HH65, etc.).
These trigger-input jacks are used to connect optional pads.
The PAD !3 jack is compatible both with mono and stereo (twoand three-zone) types; meanwhile, the PAD !4/!5 and the PAD
!6/!7 jacks support standard mono-output pads (see page 30).

External MIDI device
DTX-MULTI 12
● Synchronizing with Other MIDI Devices
Connecting Other MIDI Devices
Using standard MIDI cables (sold separately), you can connect
other MIDI devices via the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT connectors.
When connected in this way, the DTX-MULTI 12 can be used to
control synthesizers and other sound modules. Meanwhile, the
instrument’s internal tone generator can be played using other
connected MIDI devices. These and many other MIDI functions
allow for an even greater range of performance and recording possibilities.
NOTE
• In addition to the two built-in MIDI connectors, the USB TO HOST port can
also be used to exchange MIDI data. Selection of whether to use the MIDI
connectors or the USB TO HOST port for this purpose is performed on the
MIDI In/Out page from the MIDI section of the UTILITY setting area (see
page 91).
■ To Control a Sound Module or Synthe-
sizer
(Master and slave devices)
The playback of patterns on the DTX-MULTI 12 can be synchronized with playback on an external MIDI device. This instrument
and other MIDI devices use an internal clock to control the tempo
of playback, and when two such devices are synchronized, it is
necessary to specify which clock will be used by both. The device
set to use its own internal clock serves as a reference for all connected devices and is referred to as the “master” instrument. Connected devices set to use an external clock are referred to as
“slaves”. For example, if devices were connected as shown above
and you wanted to record playback data from the external MIDI
device as a pattern on the DTX-MULTI 12, it would be necessary
to set the external MIDI device as the master; furthermore, the
DTX-MULTI 12 would need to be setup to use an external clock
for synchronization. To do so, first of all press the [UTILITY] button to access the UTILITY setting area, navigate to the MIDI section (UTIL6) using the [B]/[C] buttons, and press the [ENTER]
button. Next, navigate to the MIDI Sync page (UTIL6-6) using
the [B]/[C] buttons, and set the MIDI Sync parameter to either
“ext” or “auto”.
Using a MIDI cable, connect the MIDI OUT connector on the
DTX-MULTI 12 to the MIDI IN connector on the device you
want to control or play.

NOTE
• DAW is an abbreviation of digital audio workstation. DAW applications such
as Cubase can be used to record, edit, and mix audio and MIDI data on a
computer.
● Setting DAW-Application Parameters
Within your DAW application, turn on MIDI Thru. This setting
ensures that, when performance data is being recorded on a track
within your application, it is also returned to the external MIDI
system.
For example, let’s assume that performance data is being recorded
on Track 3 by your DAW application. In addition, we’ll also
assume that MIDI Channel 1 has been set for the return of performance data. If MIDI Thru is now turned on for Track 3, the DAW
application will return the performance data to the DTX-MULTI
12 as it is being recorded, and the instrument’s internal tone generator will sound as if it is being played directly (on Channel 1).
NOTE
• For details on how to turn on MIDI Thru, refer to the manual that came with
your DAW application.
• If local control on the DTX-MULTI 12 and MIDI Thru within your DAW application are both turned off, no performance data will be sent to the internal
tone generator, either directly or indirectly. As a result, no sound will be produced.
■ Playing the DTX-MULTI 12 using MIDI

Producing Sounds with the Pads
Selecting a Preset Kit
Quick Guide
You can also adjust the sensitivity of the pads to allow them to be
played by hand (see page 19).
The term “kit” is used to refer to a collection of sounds (i.e., preset voices, waves, and patterns) produced when you strike each
of the pads, and the DTX-MULTI 12 comes complete with an
impressive range of specially-prepared preset kits. Using the procedure outlined below, select various kits and enjoy some of the
stunning sounds that your instrument can produce.
NOTE
• The screen displays shown in this Owner’s Manual are for instructional
purposes only, and they may appear somewhat different from those on
your DTX-MULTI 12.
NOTE
• Drum and other individual instrument sounds known collectively as preset
voices and rhythmic or musical phrases known as patterns can be
assigned to each of the pads. Whenever you strike a pad to which a pattern has been assigned, the pattern will either be played through just once
(one-shot) or repeated (loop), and the corresponding lamp within the Pad
Indicator will light up. If a pad playing a looped pattern is struck again, the
pattern will stop playing and the lamp will go out.

P001:PercsMaster
• If looping patterns are assigned to multiple pads and you loose track of
which ones are actually being played, you can silence all sound output by
holding down the [SHIFT] button and pressing the [EXIT] button.
• If a pad is struck too lightly or very close to an edge or corner, the corresponding lamp in the Pad Indicator may not turn on.
■ Muting
Muting is the action of placing a hand on a struck percussion
instrument in order to silence it, and the DTX-MULTI 12 pads
support this playing technique. In addition, when multiple
sounds have been assigned to a pad, you can use also muting to
switch between these sounds for more expressive performances.

Pads & Trigger Signals
The DTX-MULTI 12 is played by striking any of the
twelve built-in pads and by striking and operating external
pads, foot switches, or other controllers connected via the
PAD jacks (M to Q), the HI-HAT CONTROL jack, and
the FOOT SW jack. Whenever you perform this type of
action, a trigger signal containing various items of performance data, such as the strength with which the pad was
struck, will be produced. These trigger signals are delivered to a tone generator, which outputs the appropriate
sound in response.
Although each features just one connector, the PAD N/O
and PAD P/Q jacks can be used to connect the mono outputs from a pair of pads. In this way, each of these jacks
can handle two different trigger signals. Within the display,
the numbers ¡¢ , ¡∞ , ¡§ , and ¡¶ are used to identify
the corresponding pads.
Example:
Connecting a TP65 and a PCY65 via the PAD N/O jack
When a trigger signal produced by striking the
TP65 Single Zone Drum Pad is received, the
voices assigned to Pad ¡¢ are played.
TP65
■ Built-in Pads (1 to 12)
As shown below, each of the DTX-MULTI 12’s built-in
pads is assigned a unique number between 1 and 12. On the
various parameter-setting pages used to configure the
instrument, these numbers are presented in the format º¡
to ¡™ as a means of identifying individual pads. Although
Pads 4 to 9 (main pads) and Pads 1 to 3 and 10 to 12 (rims)
are shaped differently, they all function in exactly the same
way. Whenever they are struck, the assigned voices, waves,
or patterns will be played.

■ HI-HAT CONTROL Jack
The Hi-hat Control jack is used to connect an optional
RHH135 Two Zone Hi-Hat Pad (via its HH CTRL jack) or
an HH65 Hi-hat Controller (via its OUTPUT jack). As you
play the pad or controller, the DTX-MULTI 12 receives
and recognizes trigger signals for both hi-hat close and hihat splash*. Within the display, these signals are identified
as ∂∂œ› and ∂∂‘á , respectively.
* Hi-hat splash refers to the technique of producing sound by rapidly
depressing and releasing the hi-hat pedal.
■ PAD Jacks (M to Q)
The trigger-input jacks provided on the rear panel are used
to connect optional pads. Furthermore, the PAD M jack
can be used to connect a three-zone pad, which produces
three different types of trigger signal based on the position
at which it is struck. The DTX-MULTI 12 treats these
zones as three individual pads, identifying them on-screen
as ¡£ , ¡£Ω¡ , and ¡£Ω™ . For example, the three trigger signals output by a TP65S Three Zone Drum Pad are
identified as shown below.

Settings for all of the parameters associated with pad sensitivity are collectively referred to as a “trigger setup”. In
addition to the actual sensitivity of the pad when it is
struck, a trigger setup can also include parameter settings
intended to prevent a pair of trigger signals being produced
in response to a single strike (i.e., double triggering) and
unwanted trigger signals being produced by pads other
than the one that was struck (i.e., crosstalk). The DTXMULTI 12 supports many different playing styles using
sticks and hands, and by selecting the most appropriate
trigger setup for the style being used, you can ensure that
trigger signals will be correctly processed. Trigger setups
can also be adjusted in order to ensure that trigger signals
from external pads and controllers are processed in an ideal
manner.
Your DTX-MULTI 12 comes pre-loaded with five Preset
trigger setups suitable for many different needs, and you
can also create up to ten unique User trigger setups to suit
your own individual requirements.

■ Preset Voices
As an electronic percussion instrument played by striking
pads, the DTX-MULTI 12 comes preloaded with a vast
library of drum sounds, such as snares, bass drums, and
cymbals, together with a broad spectrum of percussioninstrument sounds. Also included are many pitched instruments, such as piano, xylophone, and guitar. The term “preset voices” is used to refer to these built-in drum and
instrument sounds.
Drum and percussion voices from this preset-voice collection are not rooted at one specific pitch; instead, you can
intuitively adjust their tuning in order to match the sounds
of other instruments. Meanwhile, pitched-instrument
voices such as piano and guitar can be assigned to pads
with a specific pitch setting, thus allowing you to play several different notes together to produce chords, or with
voices at different semitones assigned to the twelve pads, to
freely play melodic parts. With the timing and strength of
your playing reflected in the sound produced by preset
voices, you can perform with practically the same level of
expressiveness as afforded by acoustic instruments.
Reference
KIT
■ Waves
The DTX-MULTI 12 is fully equipped to playback audio
files that can be created, edited, and played on computers.
Commonly called “samples” or “sample data”, these files
contain short portions of sound, and once imported into the
DTX-MULTI 12, they are referred to as “waves”. Either
WAV or AIFF type audio files can be imported into the
instrument’s internal wave memory and assigned to pads in
much the same way as preset voices and patterns. You can
also edit imported waves.
As audio files imported into the instrument’s wave memory
are assigned to pads as a single voice much like preset
voices and patterns, the term “wave data” is used within
this manual in the same way as “preset voice data” or “pattern data”. In contrast, the term “wave file” is used to refer
to data that has not yet been imported and is handled in the
form of a file on a computer, sampler, or USB memory
device.
VOICE
To assign a voice to a pad, controller, or foot switch, access
the VOICE setting area’s Select Voice page (VCE1) by
pressing the [VOICE] button (and if necessary, the [B]
button). On this page, voices are categorized by instrument
type (in the case of preset voices), as patterns, or as waves.
While preset voices, patterns, and waves can all be
assigned to pads in the same way, it is important to remember that each voice type plays in a different way and is configured using different parameters.
MIDI
• Waves
Audio files imported into the DTX-MULTI 12 from a
variety of sources.
WAVE
• Patterns
One-shot or looped phrases containing performance data
for a range of different instruments.
PATTERN
• Preset voices
Drum sounds such as snares, bass drums, and cymbals;
percussion sounds; and pitched-instrument sounds such
as piano, xylophone, and guitar.
The DTX-MULTI 12 can also play rhythmic or melodic
phrases known as “patterns”. Capable of reproducing the
sound of performances on many different instruments, each
pattern can be up to several measures in length. In the same
way as snare sounds are produced by striking a pad to
which a snare voice has been assigned, you can start and
stop the playback of a pattern by striking the pad to which
it is assigned. In effect, pads with pattern assignments operate as start/stop switches whenever struck (regardless of
how hard or soft they are actually struck). Your DTXMULTI 12 comes pre-loaded with 128 Preset patterns
(including 3 demo patterns) containing performance data
from a host of different instrument genres, and by assigning these freely to pads, you can easily create your own
unique kits. For even more flexibility, you can also record
your own performances and even import standard MIDI
files (Format 0) to create up to 50 additional User patterns.
UTILITY
Whenever the internal tone generator receives a trigger signal produced by striking a pad or by operating a controller
or foot switch, it will play a voice assigned to that pad, controller, or foot switch. As described below, three different
types of voice are available for assigning – namely, preset
voices, patterns, and waves.

Kit Makeup
The term “kit” is used to refer to a collection of preset
voices, patterns, and waves assigned to each of the instrument’s built-in pads (1 to 12) and to any external pads, foot
switches, or controllers connected via the PAD jacks (M to
Q), the FOOT SW jack, and the HI-HAT CONTROL jack.
For added convenience, the instrument comes pre-loaded
with 30 different Preset kits. You are, however, free to make
your own unique kits in whatever way you see fit, and up to
200 of these User kits can also be stored internally.
Arrangement of Voice Layers
VCE1
-º¡ç
GM001:GrandPiano
Within the DTX-MULTI 12, voice data is grouped and
stored in kit units. In other words, each kit contains the
voice-related information for all of its pad and controller
assignments. Whenever a User kit is created by editing
voices, the voices themselves are not stored within the kit;
instead, the settings for all associated parameters – such as
tuning, stereo pan, attack time, release time, effects, etc. –
are stored. As you would expect, each of the pads can have
different parameter settings. Therefore, even when the
Select Voice page shows the same voice assigned to two or
more pads, the sounds produced by each will not necessarily be the same.
■ Voice Layers
Using the DTX-MULTI 12’s Layer function, you can
assign a number of different voices to a single pad or external controller. Specifically, this instrument allows up to
four layers (A to D) to be setup per pad, meaning that each
pad can play as many as four different voices. These layered voices can also be triggered in a number of different
ways – for example, they will all play together in Stack
mode, a different one will be played for each strike in
Alternate mode, and they can be sustained and turned off
on each successive strike in Hold mode. In order that the
Layer function may be put to use, the pad in question must
first be setup to send multiple MIDI messages whenever
struck. Then, voices are assigned to each of the layers, and
a layer playing mode is specified for the pad. For more
details, refer to the section Specifying MIDI note numbers
and assigning voices to each on page 34.

■ Information Contained in Kits
Three different setting areas apply specifically to kits: In
the KIT setting area, you can specify a volume, configure
effects, and set other parameters affecting the entire kit; in
the VOICE setting area, you can assign preset voices, patterns, and waves to each pad, foot switch, and controller,
and you can also set parameters such as tuning and volume
for each of the assigned voices; and in the MIDI setting
area, you can set MIDI-related parameters affecting the kit
or individual pads and controllers. Setting a preset voice,
pattern, or wave to be played when a pad is struck involves
the following two steps.
1. Indication of the MIDI note number(s) to be sent
when a specific pad is struck. (MIDI setting area)
2. Indication of the preset voice, pattern, or wave to be
played for each MIDI note number. (VOICE setting
area)
In cases where only a single layer is setup for a pad, however, it is possible to omit Step 1 above. (The required setting will be performed automatically when you select a
voice in Step 2.)
The following two methods of allocating voices are
described below.
• Assigning a voice directly to a pad
• Specifying MIDI note numbers and assigning voices

The second approach to configuring a pad involves setting
one or more MIDI note numbers to be sent whenever the
pad is struck and then telling the internal tone generator
which voices to play when MIDI notes with these numbers
are received. In contrast to the direct approach described
above, this method allows multiple MIDI Note messages to
be sent from a single pad in order to play layered or alternating voices using the Layer function. In addition, these
MIDI Note messages can also be output via the MIDI OUT
connector or USB TO HOST port in order to control
another MIDI instrument.
In the following example, we will setup built-in Pad 1 to
play two different voices simultaneously when it is struck.

Instead of MIDI Note messages, the DTX-MULTI 12 can
be setup to send MIDI Program Change messages, MIDI

In contrast to the type of control introduced in the Pads &
Trigger Signals section (see page 28), which makes it possible to play the DTX-MULTI 12 with trigger signals sent
from a controller or foot switch connected via the FOOT
SW jack, the MIDI control function allows the instrument’s
built-in pads and external pads to operate as versatile MIDI
controllers. In addition to selecting frequently-used kits

● Reverb
Effects
Reverb effects add a warm ambience to sounds, simulating
the complex reflections of actual performance spaces, such
as a concert hall or a small club. A specific type of reverb
can be selected for each kit within the REVERB section
(KIT6); furthermore, you can also specify the degree to
which this effect is applied to each layer on the Reverb
Send page (VCE4-3).
The effect processor built into your DTX-MULTI 12
applies special audio effects to the output from the tone
generator in order to modify and enhance its sound in a
wide variety of ways. Normally applied during the final
stages of editing, such effects allow you to optimize the
sound in line with your own specific requirements.
NOTE
• The degree to which User patterns are processed by these effect units can
be specified on the Variation Send page (PTN3-5), the Chorus Send page
(PTN3-6), and the Reverb Send page (PTN3-7); furthermore, these settings can then be saved as part of the User pattern data.
■ Effect Processor Structure
This instrument can apply effects to the tone generator’s
output using the following four effect units.
● Master EQ
● Variation
Variation effects allow you to sculpt your sound in a variety
of different ways. A specific type of variation effect can be
selected for each kit within the VARIATION section
(KIT4); furthermore, you can also specify the degree to
which this effect is applied to each layer on the Variation
Send page (VCE4-1).
● Chorus
Processing the overall instrument sound just before output,
the Master EQ supports five-band equalization. As this
equalization is applied to the sound of the entire instrument
and not that of individual drum kits or voices, Master EQ
settings do not change whenever a new drum kit is selected.
To set the corresponding parameters, use the parameter-setting pages from the UTILITY setting area’s MASTER EQ
section (UTIL3).
Chorus effects change the spatial characteristics of the
sounds to which they are applied. A specific type of chorus
effect can be selected for each kit within the CHORUS section (KIT5); furthermore, you can also specify the degree
to which this effect is applied to each layer on the Chorus
Send page (VCE4-2).

● Distortion
As its name suggests, a distortion effect distorts the sound
fed into it. It produces a sound similar to that of an amplifier turned up too high or fed with a signal that is already
sufficiently loud. This type of effect is widely used to add a
harsh, biting edge; furthermore, the resultant sound is characterized by overall thickness and long sustain times. This
thickness comes from the large numbers of harmonics contained within clipped signals. Meanwhile, the longer sustain is not produced by the original sound being stretched;
rather, it is produced when the slowly-fading release portion that cannot normally heard is amplified and distorted.

The compressor is an effect commonly used to limit and
compress the dynamics (i.e., softness or loudness) of an
audio signal. In the case of vocals, guitar parts, and other
signals that have widely varying dynamics, this effect
essentially squeezes the dynamic range, making soft
sounds louder and loud sounds softer. Furthermore, a compressor’s attack and decay characteristics can be adjusted
to modify how punchy or sustained an audio signal sounds.
Multi-band compression, meanwhile, splits the input into
three different frequency bands for processing independently of each other; accordingly, this type of effect can be
thought of as combining compression with equalization.
A flanger creates a swirling, metallic sound, similar to that
of a jet plane. While this effect operates using the same
basic principles as chorus effects, it uses shorter delay
times and also incorporates feedback to produce a very distinctive swelling sound. Rather than being used constantly
throughout a song, it is more suited to selective use in specific sections in order to add variety. A phaser, meanwhile,
introduces a phase shift into the sound being processed
before returning it to the effect input using a feedback circuit in order to produce a characteristic animated yet mellow tone. Gentler overall than a flanger, this effect can be
put to use in a wider range of situations, and for example, is
often used with electric pianos to sweeten their sound in a
variety of ways.

● Wah
● Chorus
A wah effect dynamically changes the frequency characteristic of a filter in order to produce a highly unique filtersweep sound. Auto wah changes the frequency in a cyclic
manner using an LFO, while touch wah performs filter
sweeps in response to the volume of the input signal.
Chorus reproduces the sound of multiple instruments playing in unison for a thicker, deeper tone. As all instruments
differ slightly from each other in terms of pitch and phase,
their playing together produces an overall sound that is
warmer and more spacious. In order to reproduce this type
of behavior, chorus effects make use of delay. Specifically,
a delayed, second version of the original signal is produced
and given a vibrato-type effect by varying its delay time
over a period of approximately one second using an LFO.
When this second version is mixed back into the original
signal, the resulting tone sounds as if multiple instruments
are being played in unison.

Internal Design
Internal Memory
By storing User kits, User patterns, and waves that you
have created and edited in the DTX-MULTI 12’s internal
memory, you ensure that they will always be available for
use, even after the instrument has been turned off. In addition, User trigger setups and the settings from the UTILITY setting area can also be stored in memory for reuse.
■ Data Retained by the DTX-MULTI 12
The following types of setting data can be stored in the
instrument’s internal memory.
■ Editing & Storing User Kits
Whenever you select a drum kit, the corresponding data is
loaded into a non-permanent area of internal memory
known as the Edit Buffer. If any of the kit’s parameter settings are changed, it is the data within the Edit Buffer – not
the stored version – that is modified. In this way, User kits
can be protected from accidental or unintended modification.
Kit being edited
(User or Preset)
Edit buffer (containing
all modifications)
● User kits
Original drum kits that you have created by assigning
voices to pads and external controllers can be stored as
User kits in the instrument’s memory. After doing so, you
can then recall these kits at any time in the same way as
Preset kits. In total, up to 200 User kits can be stored, and
they will be available even after the DTX-MULTI 12 has
been turned off. In addition to settings from the KIT area,
each User kit also retains associated data configured in the
VOICE and MIDI setting areas.
[STORE] button
lights up.
If the DTX-MULTI 12 is
turned off without storing the kit, all modifications will be lost.
When the kit is stored,
the version in permanent
memory is updated with
all modifications.
● User patterns
User patterns – which may be put to use in exactly the
same way as Preset patterns – can be created by recording
your performances on the DTX-MULTI 12 or by importing
standard MIDI files (Format 0). The corresponding data is
stored as a User pattern within the DTX-MULTI 12 as it is
recorded or imported, and the pattern will then be available
even after the DTX-MULTI 12 has been turned off. Up to
50 of these User patterns can be stored internally.
● Waves
Wave data created by importing either WAV or AIFF type
audio files from a USB memory device (connected via the
USB TO DEVICE port) is automatically stored within the
DTX-MULTI 12 and can then be assigned to pads for playback in the same way as preset voices and patterns. In total,
up to 500 of these waves can be stored, ensuring that they
will be available even after the DTX-MULTI 12 has been
turned off.
● User trigger setups
The DTX-MULTI 12 can also store a number of original
User trigger setups, which you can conveniently prepare by
customizing a Preset trigger setup. In specific terms, the
instrument’s internal memory can hold ten of these setups,
ensuring that they will always be available, even after the
power has been turned off and back on.
● UTILITY area settings
The parameter settings that you have configured within the
UTILITY setting area can also be stored in the DTXMULTI 12’s internal memory. In this way, they can be
instantly recalled whenever the instrument is turned on.

The purpose of the Edit Buffer is to hold a temporary version of the kit being edited, and therefore, if a new kit is
selected without storing any modifications, those modifications will be lost (i.e., overwritten with the settings from
the newly selected kit). In addition, modifications to the kit
in the Edit Buffer will also be lost when the DTX-MULTI
12 is turned off if they are not stored in advance. It is good
practice, therefore, to store the content of the Edit Buffer as
a User kit whenever you are happy with it.
■ Saving & Loading Data Files
All of the above-mentioned items of data that can be stored
in the instrument’s internal memory can also be saved as
files on a USB storage device. Whenever needed, furthermore, these memory files can be loaded back into the
instrument from the storage device. For more details, refer
to the description of the UTILITY setting area’s FILE section (UTIL7).

B Mute switch (MuteSw)
KIT
Set this parameter to “on” if muting for the pad indicated by
1 is to operate in conjunction with muting for other pads
with the same setting. When pad sensitivity is set for playing
with sticks, we recommend that you set MuteSw to “on” for at
least two pads so that you can use the muting technique without the fear of accidentally striking your hand. As you make
your selections, the numbers in the Pad Indicator will light up
to show which pads have been grouped together for muting.
Example: If MuteSw has been set to “on” for Pads 4, 5, and 6:
• When you strike Pad 4, 5, or 6 while pressing down on
either of the other two pads by hand, the struck pad will
produce a shorter sound.
• When you press down on Pad 4, 5, or 6 by hand while one
or more of these pads are producing a sound as a result of
being struck, the struck pad(s) will be silenced.

*: Muting
The action of pressing a hand down on a pad in order to change the sound
it produces or to silence it is referred to as “muting”. This technique can
be used to delicately change the sound of a performance, and with the
DTX-MULTI 12, you can setup muting in advance in order to change or
silence sounds when you press a hand down on a pad.
2
• Be sure to press firmly on a pad when you want to activate the muting
function.
• If you are using the muting technique with the MuteSw parameter (2
above) set to “on” and with “mute” selected on the Layer Switch page
(KIT7-1), the Layer Switch function will be activated.
• A polyphonic aftertouch message with a value of 127 is output whenever you press down on a pad with MuteSw set to “on”. Similarly, a
polyphonic aftertouch message with a value of 0 is output whenever
you release the pad. These messages are output for note numbers
assigned to all DTX-MULTI 12 pads, except those for which the mute
switch is not enabled (i.e., MuteSw is set to “off”).
• In cases where pads 4 to 9 are setup for playing by hand on the TRIGGER area’s Pad Type page (TRG2-1), muting will be automatically
activated without the need for multiple pads to have MuteSw turned
on. In such a case, the pad with MuteSw turned on can be pressed
and held in order to mute another struck pad. Note, however, that this
type of single-pad muting cannot be activated for the other pads (1 to
3, 10 to 12).

Using this parameter, you can assign voices to alternate
groups (i.e., monophonic sets of pads, only one of which can
be producing a sound at any time). If you do not want various
individual voices to be played together, they should be
assigned to the same alternate group. Whenever voices from
the same alternate group are triggered by playing the instrument, the latter voice is given priority and the earlier sound is
silenced. Set this parameter to “off” if you do not want to
assign an alternate group.
Settings
off, hhOpen, hhClose, or 1 to 124
NOTE
• The “hhOpen” and “hhClose” alternate groups operate in a special
way: If a voice from the “hhClose” group is triggered after a voice from
the “hhOpen” group, the hhOpen voice is silenced and only the
hhClose voice is played. No silencing of the earlier sound is performed
for any other triggering sequence (for example, hhOpen followed by
hhOpen; hhClose followed by hhOpen; or hhClose followed by
hhClose).

This section describes the MIDI setting area, which can be accessed using the [MIDI] button. In this area, you can set

Use this parameter to set Stack, Alternate, or Hold as the playing mode for the pad indicated by 1. Some typical applications of these modes are explained on the following page.
• stack ......... When Stack mode is selected, all notes assigned
to the pad are triggered simultaneously. For
example, you can use this mode to produce
chords or to trigger multiple preset voices or
waves with a single strike. To produce just one
sound, select this mode and assign only one
voice to the pad.
• alternate.... When Alternate mode is selected, the notes
assigned to the pad are played individually in
turn each time it is struck. For example, you can
use this mode to produce a different sound each
time you strike the pad.
• hold .......... When Hold mode is selected, the notes assigned
to the pad are alternately turned on and off each
time it is struck. If, for example, a sustained
sound has been assigned, the first strike of the
pad will turn it on, the next strike will turn it off,
and so on.
Settings

pads can be setup to produce a chord by playing multiple layers at the same time or to play a different layer on each successive strike. The following are typical examples of how these
modes can be used.

D Velocity upper limit
Use these parameters to set the range of velocities that will
cause the layer indicated by 2 to send a MIDI note message.
The term “velocity” refers to the speed (or power) with which
a pad is struck. By setting upper and lower limits using these
parameters, you can prevent sounds from being produced

voices are one-shot sounds that decay over time until they
become silent; therefore, MIDI Note Off messages are not
needed to stop them. As such, this parameter should normally
be set to “off”. If, however, a non-decaying sound is assigned
to a pad or layer, you can ensure that the required MIDI Note
Off message is sent by setting this parameter to “on”. In addition, you can adjust the amount of time that passes between
striking of the pad and sending MIDI Note Off messages
using the Gate Time page (MIDI1-4).

group can be producing a sound at any time. If a pad is struck
while another pad from the same alternate group is already
producing a sound, a MIDI Note Off message will be sent for
the first pad together with the MIDI Note On message for the
second. In order to use trigger alternate groups with voices
played on MIDI channel 10, the sending of MIDI Note Off
messages must be enabled by selecting “on” for RcvKeyOff
on the Receive Key-Off page (MIDI1-5). Up to 32 trigger
alternate groups can be setup on your DTX-MULTI 12. If
there is no need for a pad to be assigned to a trigger alternate

PATTERN Setting Area (PTN)
This section describes the PATTERN setting area, which can be accessed using the [PTN] button. Built into the DTXMULTI 12 are a range of Preset patterns specially for playback (P001 to P128) in addition to User patterns that can be
freely recorded and edited (U001 to U050). Use the PATTERN area to record and edit these patterns.
NOTE
• Parameter setting pages from the COMMON section (PTN2), the MIDI section (PTN3), and the JOB section (PTN4) will not be accessible when a Preset pattern
has been selected. You can, however, edit a Preset pattern by first selecting an empty User pattern and then copying the Preset pattern into it using the Copy
Pattern page (PTN4-5).
CAUTION
• Be sure to store any recorded patterns or settings that you have edited before turning off the instrument or selecting a new pattern. (See page 45.)
Makeup of PATTERN Setting Area
The PATTERN setting area is subdivided into five different sections (PTN1 to PTN5). Use the [B]/[C] buttons to navigate between
these sections. If a section contains parameter-setting pages, the [ENTER] button will light up. Press the [ENTER] button to access these
pages. In certain cases, a number of additional pages may be accessed from a parameter setting page, also using the lit [ENTER] button.
Furthermore, you can press the [EXIT] button to move back towards the top of the setting area.

• Do not unplug the USB memory device from the USB TO

this precaution can lead to the USB memory device or the DTXMULTI 12 being permanently damaged.
NOTE
• Only standard MIDI files of Format 0 can be imported.
• In certain cases where a User pattern created from an imported SMF is
looped, voices may not change as expected when playback jumps from
the end back to the beginning, and instead, the voices settings from the
end of the pattern will be maintained throughout. Specifically, this happens when program change data from the SMF’s header is not read
upon return to the start of the pattern. To prevent this type of unintended
situation, move any program change messages slightly back from the
SMF header to ensure that they will be correctly read.

Use this parameter to enable (“on”) or disable (“off”) playing
of the internal tone generator using DTX-MULTI 12 pads and
patterns. Normally, this is set to “on”, meaning that the tone
generator is locally controlled. If set to “off,” the pads and
external controllers are essentially disconnected from the
internal tone generator – in other words, no sound is produced
by the DTX-MULTI 12 when you strike them.
NOTE
• Even if local control is disabled (i.e., set to “off”) on this page, the DTXMULTI 12’s internal tone generator can produce sound in response to
MIDI messages received via the MIDI IN connector and the USB TO
HOST port; furthermore, MIDI messages produced by pads, patterns,
and external controllers will be output via the MIDI OUT connector.

A number of terms will be used in the following descriptions of
file management functions and operations. Please take a moment
to familiarize yourself with their meanings in order that these
functions and operations can be more easily understood.

Settings
File-related terms
The term “file” is used to define a collection of data stored on a
USB memory device or within the DTX-MULTI 12’s internal
memory. The exchange of data with USB memory devices is carried out in the form of files.
File name
As with your computer, the DTX-MULTI 12 can assign names to
individual files. These names are used to tell files apart, and for
this reason, no two files within a specific directory can share the
same file name. Although computers can handle very long file
names that can even contain non-English characters, the DTXMULTI 12 requires that names be limited to eight alphanumeric
characters.
File extension
The three letters following the period at the end of a file name –
such as “.mid” and “.wav” – are referred to as a “file extension.”
The type of data contained within the file is identified by the file
extension. Please note that, although this instrument assigns file
extensions to file names, they are not displayed on-screen in order
to allow the available space to be used more efficiently.
File size
The amount of memory needed to store a file is indicated by the
file size. These sizes and also the capacities of memory devices
are presented in standard computer format using B (bytes), KB
(kilo bytes), MB (mega bytes), and GB (giga bytes). (1 KB is
equivalent to 1,024 bytes, 1 MB is equivalent to 1,024 KB, and 1
GB is equivalent to 1,024 MB.)
USB memory device
The term “USB memory device” is used to refer to hard disks and
other external USB memory units used for the storage and
retrieval of files.

A hierarchical directory system is used on memory devices in
order to group files together according to type or application. In
this regard, a “directory” is equivalent to a folder as used on a
computer. As with files, you can assign names to individual directories. File operations are carried out inside a set of special directories that are created as follows within a USB memory device
when it is formatted for use on the Format page (UTIL7-5).
Please note that the DTX-MULTI 12 does not display this directory structure on-screen.

Use this parameter to set a pad type for the pad(s) indicated
by 1. Listed below, the available options will depend on
whether you selected one or more of the built-in pads (i.e.,
UP, MID, LOW, or 01 to 12) or one of the external pads (i.e.,
13 to 17) using 1 above.
NOTE
• If you have selected the UP, MID, or LOW group of pads, the values initially shown on each parameter-setting page will correspond to those
for Pad 4 and 10, respectively. In such a case, furthermore, changes
made to any parameter will affect all pads in the group.
• The pad indicator and input level indicator shown on the upper row of
text on the five parameter-setting pages (TRG2-1-1 to TRG2-1-5) are
identical to those from the Pad Type page (TRG2-1). Accordingly, they
are not covered in the following page descriptions.

of playing affects the signal produced. For example, with the
“loud2” velocity curve shown below, relatively loud sounds
(i.e., high velocities) can be produced even with softer playing. In contrast, the “hard2” curve only produces loud sounds
when the pad in question is struck quite hard.

TRIGGER
Use this parameter to set the level of gain (or amplification)
that is applied to the input signal from the selected pad(s)
before it is converted into a trigger signal. With a high setting,
all input signals above a certain level will be amplified to the
same level (i.e., the maximum level). This means that variations in the softness or hardness with which the pad is struck
can be smoothed out. Meanwhile, when a low setting is used,
the softness or hardness of playing will be reflected to a much
greater degree in the output trigger signal, allowing for more
expressive performances.

The term “crosstalk” refers to the output of trigger signals from a
pad other than the one that was stuck as a result of vibration or
interference between pads. From the Crosstalk Prevention page,
you can set input levels below which trigger signals will not be
produced, thus preventing crosstalk. With this page displayed,
press the [ENTER] button to access the Global Crosstalk Level

TRG2-1-5 Double Trigger
Prevention page
When a stick or beater strikes a pad, it may rebound and strike
again, producing a second trigger signal and causing a voice to
sound twice. The term “double trigger” is used to refer to this
phenomenon. A reject-time setting is used to prevent double triggers from occurring, and the DTX-MULTI 12 will reject any second input signals produced during this time period.

Check your system’s connections as follows.
● Ensure that headphones or an external audio system, such as
an amplifier and speakers, are correctly connected (See page
10.)
● Ensure that the cables you are using are in good condition.
Check the following and ensure that their respective volume levels are not too low.
● The amplifier and/or speakers connected to the DTX-MULTI 12.
● The VOLUME dial on the front panel. (See page 8.)
● The Volume page for the current kit ([KIT] → KIT2 → KIT2-1).
(See page 47.)
● The Voice Volume page for the voices assigned to each of the
pads ([VOICE] → VCE2 → VCE2-2). (See page 57.)
● The Master Volume page for the entire instrument ([UTILITY] →
UTIL1 → UTIL1-1). (See page 83.)
Check your trigger settings as follows.
● Open the Select Trigger Setup page ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] →
TRG1) and ensure that the trigger setup is suitable for your
playing style and any external pads being used. (See page
100.)
● Open the Input Gain and Velocity Curve pages for each of the
pads’ triggers ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 →
TRG2-1-1, TRG2-1-2) and ensure that the Gain and VelCurve
parameters are set appropriately. (See page 101.)
● Open the Input Level Range page for each of the pads’ triggers
([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-3) and
ensure that the lower setting for the Level parameter is not set
too high. At high settings, pads may not produce sounds. (See
page 101.)
Check your effect and filter settings.
● It is important to remember that filters, by their very nature,
cause all sound to be silenced at certain cutoff-frequency settings.
● Open the Attack Time and Decay Time pages for the voices
assigned to each of the pads ([VOICE] → VCE3 → VCE3-1,
VCE3-2) and ensure that the Attack and Decay parameters are
not set in such a way that voices are being silenced. (See page
58.)
Check your MIDI settings as follows.
● Open the MIDI Message page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1) and ensure that “note” is selected. No sound will be produced for any other setting on this page.
● After confirming that the pads are set to play notes on the MIDI
Message page (see above), open the Select Voice page
([VOICE] → VCE1) and ensure that a voice other than “no
assign” is selected. Pads set to “no assign” will not produce any
sound. (See page 56, 62.)
● Open the Velocity Limits page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1 → MIDI1-6) and ensure that the lower setting for the VelLimit parameter is not too high. At high settings, pads will produce sound only when struck very hard. (See page 64.)
● Open the Trigger Velocity page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1 → MIDI1-7) and ensure that the setting for the TrgVel
parameter is not too small (resulting in low volumes). (See page
64.)
● Open the Local Control page ([UTILITY] → UTIL6 → UTIL6-5)
and ensure that the LocalCtrl parameter is set to “on”. (See
page 90.)
● Open the MIDI Note page for each of the pads ([MIDI] → MIDI1
→ MIDI1-2) and ensure that all layers are not turned off. (See
page 63.)
Check your pad settings as follows.
● Open the Pad Function page for each of the pads ([UTILITY] →
UTIL4 → UTIL4-1) and ensure that the Func parameter is set to
“off”. (See page 88.)
● Open the Pad 10-12 Switch page ([UTILITY] → UTIL4 →
UTIL4-3) and ensure that the Pad10-12 parameter is set to
“enable”. (See page 89.)
Check the following if no sound is produced by external
tone generators.
● Ensure that MIDI cables have been correctly connected. (See
page 12.)
● Open the MIDI In/Out page ([UTILITY] → UTIL6 → UTIL6-9)
and ensure that the correct interface has been set for sending
MIDI data. If the MIDI IN/OUT parameter is set to “USB”, MIDI
data will not be sent to external MIDI devices connected via
MIDI cables. (See page 91.)
● Ensure that the DTX-MULTI 12 is sending data on the MIDI
channel that the external tone generator is set to receive it on.
For details regarding settings within the MIDI setting area, see
page 61. In addition, see page 76 for more details regarding
MIDI settings related to pattern playback.
● Open the External MIDI Switch page ([MIDI] → MIDI2 → MIDI22) and ensure that the MIDI Switch parameter is set to “on”.
When the external MIDI switch is turned off, MIDI messages will
not be sent, and therefore, you will not be able to play external
MIDI devices using your DTX-MULTI 12. (See page 66.)
● Ensure that a pad function has not been assigned to the pads in
question. To do so, open the Pad Function page for each of the
pads ([UTILITY] → UTIL4 → UTIL4-1) and ensure that the Func
parameter is set to “off”. No internal or external sound will be
produced by any pad with a function assignment. (See page
88.)
● Open the Pad 10-12 Switch page ([UTILITY] → UTIL4 →
UTIL4-3) and ensure that the Pad10-12 parameter is set to
“enable”. (See page 89.)
● Open the MIDI Message page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1) and ensure that “note” is selected. No internal or external sound will be produced for any other setting on this page.
(See page 62.)
● Open the Velocity Limits page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1 → MIDI1-6) and ensure that the lower setting for the VelLimit parameter is not too high. At high settings, pads will produce sound only when struck very hard. (See page 64.)
● Open the Input Level Range page for each of the pads’ triggers
([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-3) and
ensure that the lower setting for the Level parameter is not set
too high. At high settings, pads may not produce sounds. (See
page 101.)

Troubleshooting
Sounds do not stop, are distorted, or are intermittent
and stuttered, etc.
Check the following if unexpected sounds are produced
when playing an external tone generator.
● Access the external instrument’s MIDI channel settings and
ensure that they match the MIDI channel on which the DTXMULTI 12 is sending data.
Check the following if all of the pads are producing sounds
at very high volumes (or high velocities).
● Open the Input Gain page for each pad ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] →
TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-1) and ensure that the Gain
parameter is not set too high. (See page 101.)
● Open the Velocity Curve page for each pad ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-2) and ensure that the VelCurve parameter is set appropriately. (See page 101.)
● Open the Trigger Velocity page for each of the pads ([MIDI] →
MIDI1 → MIDI1-7) and ensure that the TrgVel parameter is set
appropriately. If, for example, this parameter is set to “127”, high
velocities will be produced even when the pad is struck lightly.
(See page 64.)
● Ensure that you are using only the recommended Yamaha
external pads. Products from other manufacturers can output
excessively large signals.
Check the following if sounds output from the DTX-MULTI
12 appear to be distorted.
● Ensure that effects have been set appropriately. Sound can be
distorted with certain combinations of effect type and parameter
settings. (See pages 48, 49, 50, 59, 68, 78.)
● Open the Filter page for the voices assigned to each of the pads
([VOICE] → VCE3 → VCE3-4) and ensure that filters have been
setup appropriately. Depending on the type of sound being filtered, certain resonance settings (Q) can produce distortion.
(See page 58.)
● Ensure that the MASTER dial is not set to too high a volume,
causing clipping to occur.
Check the following if voices play endlessly and do not stop.
● Open the Receive Key-Off page ([MIDI] → MIDI1 → MIDI1-5)
and check the setting for the RcvKeyOff parameter. If set to
“off”, certain types of voice will play endlessly when triggered.
(See page 64.) You can silence all voices at any time by holding
down the [SHIFT] button and pressing the [MIDI] button.
Check the following if sounds stop unexpectedly during
rolls and flams.
● Open the Playing Mode and MIDI Note pages ([MIDI] → MIDI1
→ MIDI1-1, MIDI1-2) for the pads in question and check their
settings. Delete any unnecessary note assignments for stack or
alternate playing.
● Open the Mono/Poly page ([VOICE] → VCE5 → VCE5-1) and
ensure that the Mono/Poly parameter is set to “poly”. (See page
60.)
● Open the Double Trigger Prevention page for the pad in question ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-5)
and reduce the setting for the RejectTime parameter. (See page
102.)
Check the following if no sound is produced when the
pads are played by hand.
● Open the Select Trigger Setup page ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] →
TRG1) and ensure that “P04:Hand” or “P05:Finger is selected.
(See page 100.)
● Open the Pad Type page for each pad ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] →
TRG2 → TRG2-1) and ensure that the Type parameter is set for
playing by hand. (See page 100.)
Check the following if the DTX-MULTI 12 sounds out of
tune or seems to be playing the wrong note.
● Open the Master Tune page ([UTILITY] → UTIL1 → UTIL1-2)
and ensure that the setting for the M.Tune parameter is not too
far removed from “0”. (See page 83.)
● If you are concerned about the pitch of a wave, open the Voice
Tuning page for that wave ([VOICE] → VCE2 → VCE2-1) and
ensure that the setting for the Tune parameter is not too far
removed from “+ 0.00”. (See page 57.)
● If you are concerned about the pitch of a pattern, open the
Transpose page for that pattern ([VOICE] → VCE2 → VCE2-1)
and ensure that the setting for the Transpose parameter is not
too far removed from “+ 0”. (See page 57.)
Check the following if effects produce no changes in the
sound.
● Ensure that none of the effect bypass switches have been
turned on. (See page 83.)
● Open the Effect Bypass page for the entire instrument ([UTILITY] → UTIL1 → UTIL1-6), and ensure that the applied effects
have not been bypassed. (See page 83.)
● Open the Master EQ Bypass page ([UTILITY] → UTIL3 →
UTIL3-3) and ensure that the MEQ Bypass parameter is set to
“off”. (See page 87.)
● Open the Variation Send, Chorus Send, and Reverb Send
pages for individual voices ([VOICE] → VCE4 → VCE4-1,
VCE4-2, VCE4-3) and ensure that appropriate effect-send levels are set on each. (See page 59.)
● Open the Chorus Send and Reverb Send pages for the currently selected kit ([KIT] → KIT3 → KIT3-1, KIT3-2) and ensure
that appropriate effect-send levels are set on each. (See page
48.)
Values cannot be set or buttons do nothing when
pressed, etc.
Check the following if pattern playback does not start
when the [A] button is pressed.
● Ensure that an empty pattern has not been selected.
● Open the MIDI Sync page ([UTILITY] → UTIL6 → UTIL6-6) and
confirm that MIDI Sync is set as required. If this parameter is set
to “ext”, patterns will only playback when MIDI Clock messages
are being received from an external MIDI sequencer or computer; meanwhile, if MIDI Sync is set to “auto”, playback will be
synchronized to MIDI Clock messages whenever they are
received. (See page 91.)
Perform the following if a pattern loops endlessly and does
not stop.
● Silence all voices by holding down the [SHIFT] button and
pressing the [MIDI] button. This action can be performed at any
time.
Note the following regarding wave playback speeds.
● Waves have fixed tempos. They will always play at the tempo of
the original imported file regardless of the drum kit tempo and
other similar settings.

Troubleshooting
Perform the following if multiple sounds are produced by
the struck pad (i.e., if double triggers are being produced).
● If your external pads and triggers feature output or sensitivity
controllers, reduce the output or sensitivity to a more appropriate level.
● Open the Input Gain page for the pad’s trigger ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-1) and ensure that the
Gain parameter is not set too high. (See page 101.)
● Ensure that you are using only the recommended Yamaha drum
triggers or trigger sensors. Products from other manufacturers
can output excessively large signals, which in turn can result in
double triggering.
● Ensure that the heads are not vibrating in an irregular manner,
muting them if so required.
● Ensure that drum triggers are attached in the vicinity of the rim
and not near the center of the head.
● Ensure that no other objects are coming into contact with the
drum trigger.
● Open the Double Trigger Prevention page for the pad(s) in question ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-5)
and increase the setting for the RejectTime parameter. Avoid
setting too large a reject time, as this can make it impossible to
accurately detect flams, rolls, and the like. (See page 102.)
Perform the following if sounds are also produced by pads
other than the one that was struck (i.e., if crosstalk is
occurring).
● Carry out the steps described in the section Typical Example of
Crosstalk-Prevention Setup on page 103.
● Open the Global Crosstalk Level and Individual Crosstalk Level
pages ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-2 → TRG2-2-1,
TRG2-2-2) and ensure that the Level parameters are set appropriately. (See pages 102, 103.)
● If using a separately-sold pad featuring a level adjuster, ensure
that it is set appropriately.
● Open the Input Level Range page for the pad(s) in question
([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-3) and
ensure that the lower setting for the Level parameter is set to an
appropriate value. (See page 101.)
● If playing by hand, open the Select Trigger Setup page ([SHIFT]
+ [UTILITY] → TRG1) and ensure that a suitable trigger setup is
selected for the drum kit. (See page 100.)
● If playing with sticks, open the Pad Type page for the pad(s) in
question ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1) and ensure
that the Type parameter is not set for playing by hand. (See
page 100.)
Perform the following if only one voice is produced even
though two pads are struck simultaneously.
● Open the Input Gain page for the pad not producing a sound
([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-1) and
increase the setting for the Gain parameter. (See page 101.)
● Open the Input Level Range page for the pad not producing a
sound ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1 → TRG2-1-3)
and reduce the lower setting for the Level parameter. (See page
101.)
● Open the Alternate Group page for each of the pads ([VOICE]
→ VCE5 → VCE5-2) and ensure that they are not assigned to
the same alternate group. (See page 60.)
● Open the Trigger Alternate Group page for each of the pads
([MIDI] → MIDI1 → MIDI1-9) and ensure that TrgAltGrp is set to
“off” for both. (See page 65.)
Optional add-on products do not operate as expected.
● Carry out the checks listed above in the above section No sound
is produced by striking pads or the volume is lower than
expected.
● Ensure that the signal cable is securely plugged into the jack on
the DT20 or other drum trigger.
Check the following if closed hi-hat sounds cannot be
played.
● Open the Pad Type page ([SHIFT] + [UTILITY] → TRG2 →
TRG2-1) and ensure that a suitable type has been selected. If
you are using a Yamaha RHH130 or RHH135 hi-hat controller,
the pad type must be set to either “RHH130” or “RHH135”. (See
page 100.)
Check the following if edge and cup sounds cannot be
played or the choking technique does not work when
using a cymbal pad.
● Open the Pad Type page for the connected cymbal pad ([SHIFT]
+ [UTILITY] → TRG2 → TRG2-1) and ensure that a suitable
cymbal-pad type has been selected. (See page 100.)
Perform the following checks if hi-hat splash sounds cannot be played.
● Ensure that the foot controller is connected via the HI-HAT
CONTROL jack.
● Open the Splash Sensitivity page ([UTILITY] → UTIL5 →
UTIL5-2) and ensure that the SplashSens parameter is set to a
suitable level. Note that hi-hat splash sounds will not be produced if “off” has been set here. (See page 89.)
Check the following if a foot switch connected via the
FOOT SW jack is not working properly.
● You may have connected the foot switch with the DTX-MULTI 12
already turned on. Ensure that you always connect foot
switches before turning on the instrument.
Perform the following if nothing happens when buttons on the front panel are pressed.
● Ensure that the Panel Lock is turned off. (See page 8.)
● Ensure that the Cubase Remote function is turned off. (See
page 15.)
Carry out the following checks if data cannot be
saved on a USB memory device.
● Ensure that the USB memory device has been correctly formatted. (See page 97.)
● Ensure that the USB memory device has not been write-protected. (See page 12.)
● Ensure that there is sufficient free space on the USB memory
device to save the data in question. To confirm how much memory is available for saving data, open the Memory Info page
([UTILITY] → UTIL7 → UTIL7-6). (See page 98.)
Check the following if MIDI data cannot be exchanged
with a computer or external MIDI device.
● If you are using USB cables, ensure that they are connected
correctly. (See page 13.)
● Open the MIDI In/Out page ([UTILITY] → UTIL6 → UTIL6-9)
and check the current setting. If you want to exchange MIDI
data with a computer via USB, ensure that the MIDI IN/OUT
parameter is set to “USB”. Alternatively, if you want to exchange
MIDI data with external devices via MIDI cables, ensure that this
parameter is set to “MIDI”. (See page 91.)
Appendix
Multiple sounds are produced when a single pad is
struck.
Perform the following checks if consistent, reliable trigger
signals cannot be produced using an acoustic drum.
● Ensure that a high-quality drum trigger, such as the DT20, is
secured firmly in place using adhesive tape. (Remember to
remove any old tape.)
