An XL e-drum kit with an XL set of sounds and features.
Coming from a long and illustrious line of Yamaha e-drum sets, the Yamaha DTXTREME III XL electronic drum kit features an upgraded brain that's based upon 'Motif' AWM2 sounds. The DTXTREME III XL is configured with 5 drum pads, 3 cymbal pads, and the DTXTREME III module, mounted on the RS130 drum rack.
Using sound technology from the highly acclaimed Motif XS and DSP effects from Yamaha's high-end digital mixers, the DTXIII drum module has professional sounds that bring your drumming to life. With a realistic hi-hat that responds naturally to hands and feet, 3 - 3-zone chokeable cymbals, one 3-zone snare, and 4 - 3-zone toms, DTXIII XL is a complete electronic drum set for the most demanding live applications.
Yamaha combined superior sounds, sampling capability, and flexible connectivity into an easy-to-navigate interface to give you the ultimate tool for creating music in the studio. It's also perfect for controlling VST software like BFD and Sonic Reality's Drum Masters. The Yamaha DTXtreme III electronic drum set's sampling capabilities set it apart from the competition and let you get any drum sound, and Yamaha has free samples available for download.
The Yamaha DTXtreme e-drum set makes practice fun and productive by giving you features that help you learn any style and allow you to track the accuracy of your playing. The Groove Check and advanced Metronome functions help you develop solid timing. The DTXIII also includes a sequencer, so you can record your own grooves any time you want or create complete backing tracks to jam along with.
Yamaha DTXtreme III Module
A shining example of technology powered by a drum company, the Yamaha DTXtreme III module uses the same technology that powers the supercharged Yamaha MOTIF XS synthesizer. With the optional memory installed, 512MB of sampling allows players to trigger a large library of custom sounds. The DTXtreme III also features USB connectivity and an advanced internal sequencer.
When you want to customize your sound, you can take any of the over 1,000 internal drum, percussion, special effects voices, and loops to create up to 50 user kits. Insert a USB stick and you can save another 1,584 kits. Taking it even further, you can assign any MIDI channel to each pad, giving you access to over 200 melodic GM voices that you can trigger from any pad. With the optional DIMM (sold separately), you have 512MB of sampling memory allowing an additional 1,016 user voices.
The Yamaha electronic drum module has 15 trigger inputs, of which 14 accept 3-zone pads. Input 10/11 is able to accept 2 mono pads by using a stereo splitter. For live performance or recording, there is a stereo pair of outputs, or 6 individual outputs that also function as 3 stereo pairs, and a S/PDIF digital output. The Aux in allows you to plug in an external music source so that you can play along or lets you sample directly into the module. There is a full-function sample editor so that you can tweak your samples once recorded. The MIDI in/out allows connection to other devices, and the USB and TO Host terminals allow easy connection to a computer. The USB also allows use of a flash drive to store and load user created data such as kits, samples, songs, and click settings.
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 drum 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 Yamaha DTXtreme III electronic drum set.
Updated Motif sounds and USB connectivity give this electronic kit the right stuff.
