Thousands of Sounds in this Great-playing Percussion Pad!When you get the DTX-MULTI 12, you've got versatile, responsive percussion sounds — perfect for fleshing out your acoustic kit or programming beats into your DAW. If you're going with an electronic percussion pad, you know that the feel of the pads is just as important as the sounds. We're glad to tell you that the Yamaha DTX-MULTI 12 delivers on both fronts. In fact, Yamaha managed to pack in a number of sounds from their flagship MOTIF synthesizer, so you know the DTX-MULTI 12 sounds phenomenal.
Whatever your style or setup, the DTX-MULTI 12 is ready to deliver. Use it alongside your acoustic kit to give your onstage sound new flavor. You'll find awesome folk and acoustic drum instrument sounds, chromatic percussion, DJ voices, and more. The DTX-MULTI 12 can even play back WAV and AIFF files right from a USB memory stick! When it's time to record, this percussion pad is also a star. Thanks to the USB port on the back of it, you can record your percussion ideas straight to your DAW. In fact, Yamaha included Cubase AI 5 recording software, so you're already prepared for PC recording.
Don't forget that practice makes perfect — and that's one more reason you need the DTX-MULTI 12. You can plug in optional KP65 (kick) and HH65 (hi-hat) pedals. When you put on a set of headphones, pick up your sticks, and start playing, it's going to feel like you're jamming on a regular kit! What a great way to work on your chops without disturbing your family or your neighbors. Want to feed your need for even more drum pads? It's no problem. Connect up to five external trigger pads to your DTX-MULTI 12 and jam away.

One-trip trap kit
by Michael Whipple from Medford, OR, USAI played a gig with a 5-piece band with two guitars and a sax player using only the DTX-M12 and a Roland KD-9 kick trigger. Results were excellent--the dance floor was movin', people were groovin', an... read more [+]d my band mates kept looking around for the trap kit....This is a well-designed, easy to program unit that sounds and plays great. My two complaints are: lack of numerical data entry (to avoid having to scroll through the entire program list to change Kits) and lack of separate audio outputs. I understand both of these were probably omitted to allow the unit to sell at certain price point, and be a certain size, but they would be excellent additions to the design. Fitting my DTX, Roland KD-9, stand and cables in one 61-key keyboard soft case made a difficult load-in a breeze. One trip gigs are something new and wonderful for me. close [-]

Finally a USB sample-loading drum pad!
by PsyJim from Los AngelesIt's everything I dreamed of, audio quality is studio grade, no noise, well built unit, easy to operate. I loaded in batches of my own samples via USB stick in one operation, assigned them to pads and... read more [+] wah-la! I was in heaven! Plays up to 23sec sample loops in perfect midi sync. Main pads are very expressive..drum rolls come out fine, no formidable latency.

My gripes: 1) You can only load in samples at 16bit/44.1kHz, so you have to convert your 24-bit samples to 16/44.1 beforehand. Max sample length is 23 seconds.
2) The rim pads are not as sensitive as the flat ones, you cannot effectively play rolls, you must whack them harder to get anything out. But the flat pads are really expressive. I can make it work for me! Thanks, Yamaha! close [-]
Nice unit, confusing documentation & programming
by Jack from Trenton, NJTypical Yamaha build quality (solid) and sound (clean). Good layout of pads so one can use sticks or hands. However there are some not-so-nice things. The increment/decrement buttons lower right do no... read more [+]t light up. Yamaha touts this unit as being good on a darkened stage - without these lighting I'm not so sure. USB connectors are only the slower USB 1.1 and loading new kit info this is way is painfully slow. Then there's the typical Yamaha confusing documentation to go with the typical Yamaha implementation of the unit's programming, particularly as regards pad sensitivity & velocity. Not the easiest to work with and there's no computer editor/librarian available. Just like when the original Motif line came out.

As to mounting this thing - you're better off on a flat table or getting the stand Roland uses for the HPD instruments. The Yamaha one isn't that sturdy as it wobbles around when hitting the pads hard and looks like the arm could break easily. And you need to buy two separate pieces which total almost $200 - not cool. close [-]
