Yamaha has created the DTXTREME IIIS Limited Edition Electronic Drum Set by parlaying their time-tested technology research with advanced drum manufacturing. Featuring a 6-piece configuration with three cymbal pads. Upgrades include a curved rack, great-feeling pads, sampling capabilities, and a selection of drum voices from the award-winning Yamaha MOTIF synthesizer. Soft, 3-zone rubber pads offer players the ultimate in performance comfort, natural feel, and rebound. Each pad includes an assignable controller for pitch, voice selection, or other parameters, while the snare pads can also assign strainer control. The hi-hat controller combines a real drum stand with an electronic pad for a traditional look and feel. Onboard electronics include 1,115 realistic drum voices, 128 GM voices, 90 preset drum kits, 40 user kits, 164 preset songs, 32 user songs, Groove Check practice feature, and an easy-view backlit display. 8MB of voices, kits, or songs may be stored and retrieved via a SmartMedia storage card. The DTXTREMEIIIS includes MIDI and USB to HOST connections for PC or Mac.
DTXtreme IIIS Trigger Module
Yamaha Drums, the only company to make acoustic and electronic drums, has completely overhauled its flagship electronic kit and introduced the DTXTREME IIIS.
A shining example of technology powered by a drum company, the DTXTREME III module uses the same technology that powers the supercharged Yamaha MOTIF XS synthesizer. In addition to over 1,000 onboard drum, percussion and special effect voices, the module includes over 100 General MIDI voices. With the optional memory installed, 512 MB of sampling allows players to trigger a large library of custom sounds. The DTXTREME III also features USB connectivity and an advanced internal sequencer.
Yamaha combined its electronic drum and digital music design teams to share technology and create this powerful electronic drum module. The user-friendly features of this module are exceptional and the sounds will blow you away. Several Yamaha drum artists, including Tommy Aldridge, Akira Jimbo, Russ Miller, John "JR" Robinson and Tony Verderosa, among others, had a hand in designing the DTXTREME IIIS.
