The Yamaha DTX8 and DTX10 can also be customised to look like a traditional kit

Yamaha DTX-PRO Module

At the Heart of the Brand New DTX8 Electronic Drumkit is the Critically acclaimed DTX-PRO Drum Module. The DTX-PRO Drum Module offers totally new audio quality with samples recorded in some of the finest studios in the world Using some of the best drumkits that Yamaha has to offer. The sounds can be treated with a whole host of effects, so drummers can tailor the sound they want to hear for whatever situation they are put in musically. Users can also load up to 1000 of their own samples in addition to the 400+ internal sounds


Unique to the DTX-PRO modules are the Kit Modifier knobs which allow the user to instantly change the sound of the kit by adjusting the real sampled room ambiance (not just reverb), Kit compression, and other effects in real time. Every channel also has built in EQ and transient control which usually only found in studio software, this allows you to change the attack and decay of the sounds to suit your needs.

Brand New DTX Sounds

The sounds for the DTX-PRO Module have been recorded in some of the best studios in Europe. Great care has been taken to record each sound from the initial stick impact to the last usable vibration. As well as the direct microphone sounds from the drums and cymbals themselves, the sounds of the instruments in the studios themselves were also captured.

Triggering and FX

The DTX8 is much faster to trigger than previous DTX models this makes them feel much more natural to play. The DTX-PRO Module also has 256 polyphony, meaning they can play more notes at the same time.

The transient adjustment adjusts the attack and release of the sound, effectively making the instrument sound closer or farther away depending on the settings. Each channel has compression in addition to the compressor modifier. 31 effects can be assigned to each individual channel making each channel abit different.

Kit Modifiers

The Kit modifier knobs are unique to Yamaha. They allows the user to instantly change the sound by affecting the ambience, compression and effects. You can also see how much each modifiers being used and adjust it in real time.

The ambience Modifier works by adding real room ambience onto the kit sound. When the drumkits were recorded they also took the time to record and sample the actual room sound. You can add this natural ambience onto the drum kit by turning the ambience modifier.

the compression modifier works by adding compression onto the whole kit, a small amount of compression can help to bring the whole kit sound together. More compression adds attack and smack to the sound to give it a more aggressive sound.

The effects modifier works by controlling how much you hear the 2 effects processors as well as the master FX. Each pad can send different amounts of signal to either processor meaning each pad can have different effects on it if required.

Ride Hit Point detection

The Ride Cymbal On the DTX8 have hit point detection or positional sensing, this means it can sense where on the bow it is being played and adjusts the sound being played accordingly, allowing for a more natural playing experience. this is in addition to the 3 zone sensing – Bell, bow, Edge.

You can load up to 1000 of your own samples into the DTX-PRO and PROX Modules. Each sample can be 16 bit or 24 bit, stereo or mono, and is loaded in from a USB drive DTX-PRO = 32Mb (6min 20secs stereo) DTX-PROX= 256Mb (25min 22secs stereo) But this can all be used for drum and percussion sounds as there are other ways to play/ trigger tracks.


Every zone of every pad of the DTX 8 and 10 kits can have 4 layers. Each layer can be an internal sound or a user sample. These sounds can be stacked together or alternated – each time the zone is hit, the next sound in the list is heard. This is a function called Stack/Alt


The DTX-PRO and PROX Modules have a feature called User Voice which works in parallel with Stack/Alt. This means that up to 40 samples can be loaded onto any zone of any pad. These samples can then be set to play at different dynamics. You could load up to 120 samples per pad – 10 layers and 4 repeating samples on each zone.

It is incredibly important that drummers can hear themselves clearly, so the new DTX modules comes equipped with a high precision, low distortion, low noise, and high- power headphone amplifier. This circuitry delivers high-fidelity sound directly to the player, and has been developed exclusively for electronic drums. The DTX-PROX has both 6.35mm and 3.5mm headphone outputs for ease of use, whether it is headphones or in ear monitors. The DTXPRO has 6.35mm.
