Modeled sounds to trigger with your favorite pad or drum set.

At the heart of the DTXplorer is its compact trigger module, with a 16-bit/32-note polyphony tone generator that produces amazingly realistic, physically modeled voices. Choose from 214 drum and percussion sounds, 22 preset songs, and 32 preset drum kits covering rock, funk, jazz, reggae, and Latin styles. An array of onboard digital effects let you tweak your sound to your liking. Create and store up to 9 custom kits. The module also includes the Groove Check practice feature, a multifunction metronome, backlit LCD display, and simple plug-and-play connections. Auxiliary and MIDI inputs expand the kit's versatility, allowing you to connect to a PC or other device. The headphone output allows quiet practice.

32 Factory Kits, 10 User Kits, 214 Voices
The 32 factory-programmed kits give you a wide variety of kits that can be used in almost any musical situation. The 10 user kits allow you to build custom kits using any of the 214 voices for your particular musical needs.

Groove Check with Rhythm Gate

The DTXPL module has Yamaha's popular Groove Check function, but takes it to the next level as a learning tool. You can engage the Rhythm Gate so that when you play out of time the module will mute the drums until you get back in time with the click.

Comments about Yamaha DTXplorer Trigger Module:

The unit is very useful. The samples are very good in their factory settings. Which is hard to find without some editing time. Easy to use. Lot of functions for a module in this price range. For the price it is a very good little machine. I have used all of the Rolands which work very well. But they have a lot of samples that have to be changed to find the sound your looking for. But in the price range you will not be disappointed. Using as as an add-on unit with my acoustic kit. The unit has some serious drum and percussion instruments sounds. The module can be programmed without taking all day to find a sound that is suitable to use. If used with pads the trigger response works very well. Great deal for the money.
