Reproducing the way an acoustic drum behaves when struck is a key factor in the playability of electronic drums.
Our electronic drums feature a sound module that covers the full range of sound from the initial attack to the final cutoff, all based on samples of authentic drums tuned by a skilled engineer. We have carried out exhaustive testing of how acoustic drums respond when they’re hit to help achieve a truly faithful representation of drum behavior. Moreover, professional drummers from around the world have evaluated the performance of the DTX-PRO, allowing us to improve its expressive capabilities even further. The combination of expertise that we have accrued as a manufacturer of music hardware has allowed Yamaha to offer combinations of expertly crafted modules and pads that deliver superb playability.
"High-performance sound engine that recreates sound creation"
The high-performance sound engine equipping the DTX-PRO leverages the technologies that Yamaha has acquired over decades of making musical instruments of all kinds. With authentic acoustic and live drum sounds, the same high-end effects found in professional-grade synthesizers and audio equipment, and effect control functions that let you recreate the techniques of elite drummers with a single knob, the sound engine in the DTX-PRO even recreates the process of creating sound in recording studios and live performance scenarios.
As a complement to this, Yamaha drum pads feature pad sensing technologies that respond with precise accuracy to the actions of the player, delivering the ultimate in expressive capability that is reflected in the sound.
"Professional grade headphone amp"
Offering high precision, low distortion, low noise, and high-power components, the headphone amplifier circuit delivers high-fidelity sound directly to the player and has been developed exclusively for electronic drums. Effectively combining a range of Yamaha circuit technologies with the power circuit provided independently for the headphone amplifier produces a powerful, high quality sound that envelops the player in realistic drum tones.
