An updated 500 series module offering new levels of sound quality.
While the outside retains the familiar layout of the DTX500, inside the updated Yamaha DTX502 drum trigger module beats a new heart. Yamaha took their most popular drum sounds and made them even better, and then added 250 new voices including drum and cymbal sounds licensed from top VST developers that have been optimized for DTX. Yamaha also fine-tuned the trigger settings on this module and made them easy-to-use so that pads and triggers offer more expression than ever before. With expanded training functions you can become a better drummer, and with the wave-import feature you can add your own new sounds. The module accepts up to 12 trigger signals and our new design allows easy integration into an acoustic/electronic hybrid setup.
Using proprietary laser technology to analyze drum strokes, Yamaha precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 series resulting in a more natural feeling with laser accuracy. You also get advanced features from higher end Yamaha models like cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells, and smoother snare drumrolls so the kits respond to every nuance of your playing.
The DTX502 has the ability to import up to 12 seconds of user waves* using the free MusicSoft Downloader application so you can assign custom voices to the pads. *20 samples maximum and up to 12 sec. (sampling rate 44.1kHz, 16-bit, mono). The DTX502 module is perfect for use in a ‘hybrid' kit with your acoustic drum hardware, and can be expanded with four additional pads or triggers. Pad upgrades let you build your dream kit as your skills improve, and USB connectivity lets you easily connect to a PC.
The module also includes a set of helpful drum training functions to challenge you no matter your current skill level every time you practice. Working with these tools will help you improve the most important skills for drumming from rhythmic timing to pad accuracy and endurance. The system will even generate a score so you can track your progress as you improve.
