Yamaha DTX-Multi 12 Electronic Percussion Pad


Yamaha has introduced the DTX-Multi 12 electronic percussion pad, a new electronic percussion pad that offers 12 on-board pads and a built-in sound module. The unit is designed to easily integrate into an existing acoustic set up or act as a stand alone unit.

The DTX-Multi 12 boasts over 1200 voices, covering drums, percussion and keyboard sounds, many drawn from Yamaha’s Motif synthesizer range and many completely new. Up to 200 custom set ups can be created and stored using all internal sounds and 42 types of effects. Additional sounds can be loaded and stored into the onboard 64MB of memory and allocated to any pad.

Up to four voices can be assigned to a single pad for simultaneous or sequential playback and a wide range of dynamic options are made available.

Computer connectivity is via a single USB cable. The included Cubase AI5 software facilitates the recording and editing of MIDI data. The device can also function as a high quality sample playback device with 64MB of flash ROM on board.

Hi-Hat controllers and kick pedal pads can be added if you wish to use the DTX-Multi 12 as a compact stand alone electronic drum kit.
