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

I 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', and 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.

DW Ultralite Cymbal Stands

First of all these cymbal stands are great and "ultralite". Stable and it lightens up the hardware bag. Service was fantastic. Shipped weeks before it was scheduled. Great follow up from Ryan and they made sure I was happy with my experience and product that was purchased. Definitely ordering again.

I have owned several percussion pads over the years, beginning with the original Roland Octopad with Roland D-4. The DTX-MULTI 12 has a great selection of high quality sounds with control over pitch, volume and many other parameters of each sample. I have really enjoyed loading my own .wav sounds. It is extremely simple, and gives me the ability to customize my kits with any sound I can record or acquire. Its multiple inputs for triggers, pads and pedals add to the incredible versatility of this unit. I downloaded the MULTI12 app to my iPad, and immediately was able to control and modify my kits and sounds effortlessly. I highly recommend this fantastic tool for any performing and/or studio musician. And Sweetwater made my purchase easy and very affordable!

First of all, I've always been a fan of Yamaha equipment, so I'll usually look at Yamaha first to see what they have if I need something - Most of what they produce is usually very quiet and sounds pretty good...the majority of my equipment can attest to that and my DTX is no exception - I needed to update my (RX5) drum machine to something modern and comparing to other brands (e,g., Roland, etc.) I felt that Yamaha provided something better as well as at a better price - Yamaha has always loaded their equipment with no shortage of (megabits) sounds...just check out they're flagship keyboards and it's thje same for their DTX-MULTI 12 - IF you're looking at spending between 500.00 & 1,000.00 $'s for a drum machine....this is the better deal for the quality of sounds, the amount provided along with features and functions...as a Midi controller, w/USB both ways, 12 Pads & 1,277 Voices, 5 Trigger Inputs including Kick & Hihat...you won't be disappointed

I've used the Yamaha DTX-MULTI 12 in just about every environment I can think of, and it's held up like a champ, even in the heat and humidity of summer. It's my desert-island percussion pad. The pads are super easy to program too, especially with the iPad app, and the sounds that come onboard the DTX-MULTI 12 are authentic and easy to work into the rest of my kit.
