Legendary Yamaha Sound Quality for All Your Drum Kits!
The DTX500 drum trigger module features Yamaha’s high-quality tone generator with realistic acoustic drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds. You get the sounds of hi-end oak, maple, beech and birch drums, with details like velocity-switching samples (that changes sound characteristic as you play harder) so you will feel like you are listening to a “live” set of drums. The 50 preset kits are ready for you to perform a wide range of music styles, and you can select your favorite sounds to create custom user kits, and add digital reverb effects and master EQ to sweeten the sound. With 427 naturally sampled acoustic drum and percussion voices, the DTX500 module will bring out your best playing by providing highly realistic and powerful drum sounds.
Play Along With Musical Practice Songs!
The songs of the DTX500 module let you play along in different styles with or without the recorded drum track, solo the bass player, or with the full ensemble to make playing fun and practicing seem more like a band rehearsal.
Practical Tools that Improve your Groove!
Yamaha’s popular groove tools have set the standard for educational functions that are not only easy and fun to use, but actually help you become a better drummer. The DTX500 module has a collection of training functions including the popular Groove Check that displays whether you are playing early or late, so you can more easily correct undesirable habits. Rhythm Gate is like a drumming game that automatically mutes the sound if you playing is too far out of time, so you quickly learn to control your groove and play “in the pocket”. Practice has never been this much fun!
3-Zone Cymbals with “Choke” Feature Deliver Realistic Expression!
The cymbals of the DTX560K feature our advanced 3-zone cymbal pads which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones.
Zildjian Gen16 Cymbals Deliver Realistic Expression!
Zildjian Gen16 Cymbals Deliver Realistic Expression! The Zildjian Gen16 AE (Acoustic Electric) cymbals produce a wide range of sounds ranging from that classic Zildjian cymbal to some very non-traditional sounds. The AE cymbal plays and feels like a real cymbal. The Gen16 AE cymbal is an actual cymbal that utilizes a unique dual microphone and DSP engine to amplify and model the cymbal's output.
The Gen16 module, complete with face mounted controls for your mix-tweaking pleasure, is ready to load up with the host of samples available from Zildjian. Easily scroll through presets with dedicated softpads on each of 5 cymbal channels, and control your overall mix with a single knob if you choose to run e-drums through the device.
AUX INPUT Connection to Play Along With Your Favorite Tunes!
The DTX500 includes an audio input for connecting an external music player to the module so you can play along with your favorite music, either though the main output or in your headphones, so you can quickly master the piece you want to learn note for note.
