OUR PART # DTXHP570
Designed for creating an acoustic-electric hybrid drum kit, Yamaha's DTXHP570 includes everything you need to start building your hybrid kit. The centerpiece of this pack is the DTX502 trigger module, which features flexible mounting options and is compatible with 37 different types of pads, pedals, and triggers. The DTX502 is equipped with 691 preset sounds and allows you to import new samples (16-bit WAV/AIFF format), along with new MIDI-based songs via the MusicSoft Manager app for Apple iOS devices or MusicSoft Downloader for Windows PCs.
The DTX502 also features multiple practice tools to help improve your drumming skills. The popular Groove Check function displays whether you are playing early or late, so you can more easily understand and correct unwanted habits. The Rhythm Gate function will automatically mute the sound if your playing is too far out of time versus what you are playing along to, which helps to get you to play "in the pocket" more effectively. There's also a programmable metronome that allows for complicated rhythms and tones to be set, along with a blinking light for a visual representation of the tempo.
If you want to play along with your favorite songs on your media player or smartphone, the aux input connection on the DTX502 makes it easy to connect your device and start playing along. Plus, if you want to use the DTX502 to trigger sounds from your favorite DAW instrument plugings, all you need to do is connect it to your computer via a USB connection.
Along with the DTX502 trigger module, the DTXHP570 includes a 7" single-zone TP70 electronic drum pad that can be connected to any input on the DTX502 module to trigger any sound you would like. You also get two DT20 acoustic drum triggers that also connect to the DTX502 module, which are designed to be attached to your acoustic drums - typically kick and snare - to create a blended sound with both the natural acoustic sound of the drum along with whatever sound you assign to be triggered from the DTX502 while playing. All of this adds up to give you a versatile drum kit that lives in both the analog and digital worlds.
