You can easily start and stop patterns by simply striking the pads. In addition, you can record your own performances as patterns or create patterns on a PC. These patterns can then be assigned to pads. 

Using the Tap Tempo function, you can set the tempo for patterns and the click track by simply striking pads. In this way, you can conveniently and intuitively set the tempo that you need.

MultiMode! Play Modes
The DTX MULTI 12 provides a number of playing modes and features that enable performers to directly express their art and talent. 

    Stick mode, optimized for playing the instrument with drum sticks
    Hand mode, for conveying subtle expressions through hand percussion.
    Finger mode, for extremely intricate finger drumming.

Muting feature, which enables sounds to be muted or changed when a hand is pressed down on a pad as it is struck.

MultiAssignment! Trigger Function
Up to four different voices can be assigned to each pad. 

The DTX MULTI 12 is packed with a multitude of features to stimulate creativity such as Stack mode in which all the notes assigned to a pad are triggered simultaneously with a single strike and Alternate mode in which the notes assigned to the pad are played individually in turn each time it is struck.

MultiInterface! Music Production
In addition to the MIDI In/Out port, the DTX MULTI 12 is equipped with a USB TO HOST port that can be connected to a PC with a USB cable (sold separately) and a USB TO DEVICE port that can be save the user kit data on a USB memory.

Cubase AI 5 by Steinberg, a DAW software application, is bundled with the DTX MULTI 12. You can begin modifying the pitch and rhythm of the MIDI data that you input using the DTX MULTI 12 and begin composing elaborate pieces of music on the same day you buy the DTX MULTI 12.
