Real sounds that drive the drummer
No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves—key to any drum sound, along with the ambience of the place where they are played. The DTX PRO has been fine-tuned to follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.
The acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in best recording studios in the world. As well as recording the direct drum sounds though, the unique natural room ambience of the studios where they were recorded, was also sampled.
Performances by leading Yamaha drums artists were recorded and mixed by a team of recording engineer to give the final instrument samples. The project sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, specified exacting recording techniques to capture the full detailed sound of each drum and cymbal, from the initial attack, until the very end of the natural sound.
The DTX pads, the drummer’s interface with their instrument, have been carefully matched to the DTX-PRO Module to offer excellent expressive capabilities.
Intuitive functionality that stirs creativity
The Kit Modifier featured on the DTX-PRO offers drummers limitless possibilities for their creativity.
The KIT MODIFIERs condense the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. A wide range of tonal possibilities are available thanks to Yamaha engineers — from the natural sound of acoustic drums, through to live performance sounds, to heavily effected sounds.
The AMBIENCE knob controls the natural ambience and reverb of the drum kit sound. On acoustic drum sounds, the AMBIENCE MODIFIER controls the real recorded natural ambience from 0-50%. When turned up higher than 50%, high quality digital reverb is also introduced to the sound.
The COMP and EFFECT knobs utilize the "1-knob" control technology featured in many Yamaha PA products.
The COMP adds one-knob compression to the whole kit sound, from subtle to very obvious, while EFFECT controls the mix of the two internal effects processors. The processors are fully adjustable and have a long list of available effects to choose from.
A playing experience in a class of its own
The DTX6 series is equipped with the TCS (Textured Cellular Silicone) heads, providing unparalleled levels of feel and quietness.
Yamaha's original TCS head uses a foamed silicone material that contains innumerable air bubbles. With the perfect level of firmness and rebound that allows players to hit hard, TCS offers a natural, pleasant feel that inspires you to want to keep playing, and because the surface never loosens, every strike feels perfect.
In addition, a unique floating structure without any direct contact with the head and body parts prevents vibration from being transmitted elsewhere, while also improving sensitivity, and the air bubbles in the TCS head serve as a cushion to soften the stick sound.
Detailed reproduction of the drummer's performance
The DTX6 series uses 3-zone pads for snare, crash*, and ride. The snare offers the main articulations - head, closed rim, and open rim - and the cymbals offer edge, bow, and cup triggering. In addition, the cymbal pads can be choked or muted by grabbing the edge. This allows for a variety of performance techniques and lets drummers comfortably practice their accuracy.

A more musical ride
The ride cymbal also offers positional sensing. This means the sound changes depending on where the cymbal is played. This feature is possible thanks to the high-definition long sampling of the cymbal sounds featured in the DTX-PRO sound module. It is perfect for accurately reproducing delicate cymbal work.
Everything a drummer needs
The DTX-PRO module comes fully equipped to communicate with other technology and the outside world. The USB can send and receive MIDI data, and also send and receive audio data when connected directly to a computer or smart device. The unit also comes with a MIDI OUT socket, allowing you to send MIDI data to connected devices. Up to 14 pads or drum triggers can be connected to the trigger inputs on the module, making it simple to create a hybrid setup with a mix of acoustic and electronic drums.
An App that makes recording, editing, and sharing easy
The DTX-PRO is compatible with the Rec’n’Share iOS/Android App so you can easily record/ video a performance on your device that is combined with the audio data from the module. You can then edit the recorded video, and share it on social media. When you load tracks into the App, you can add clicks, time stretch, A-B repeat and edit your video and audio right from the drum throne.

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.
