  • DTXpress trigger problems

    Greetings, I'm a newbie to vdrums.com. I've been playing a set of yamaha DTXpress edrums for about 6 months. They are definitely not rolands (I hope I can still hang out here), but they were in my price range and I had not played in years. So, they were a good economy/reentry kit. They've been pretty good so far for the price. Is there much expertise on this unit in this forum? If so, I could sure use some help with a triggering problem. Here's the deal...seemingly out of the blue in the last couple days, my pads are failing to trigger when struck simultaneously, particularly when I am trying to play softly/dynamically. For instance, if I strike snare, kick and tom (or cymbal etc.) pad simultaneously, one (and often 2) of the three pads will not trigger or will trigger erratically. I have reset the brain to factory settings and reprogrammed and I have tweaked the reject/self-reject/gain settings for each pad repeatedly with no success. It seems to be a kit-wide problem and it is most aggrevating. I have experienced one trigger dominating another on occassion since I've owned the kit, depending upon drum kit selection, gain settings etc., but nothing this severe/persistent to date. Unfortunately, yamaha tech support, while seemingly competent once you get a live human, is near impossible to get on the phone and the turnaround cycle for contact is on the order of 48 hours (what's up with that anyway?). Any ideas to get me out of this jam would be greatly appreciated. Is my brain sick? Apologies for the long post. Thanks in advance.

    ps: I think a roland kit is in my near future.

      Of course you can, silly goose! Noone gives a phuc what brand of edrums you play. Even Guitarists pop in on occassion. The most chatty dude in this forum (Puttenvr) plays Ddrums. And peeps (almost always) welcome his advice/remarks.

          Just clik on the little notepad/pencil icon as if you were gonna edit the post that has the smilie you're interested in (which you can't unless it's your own - or you know the password) and look in the body of the text for either a set of special characters or a URL.

              Thanks for the smilie tips guys. After finally getting yamaha tech support on the phone (only took 48 hours!), I think I have my triggering "issues" resolved as well. My experience with technical support has convinced me now more than ever that it is time to unload my DTXpress kit and step into a stylin set of Roland Vs. See you on the dark side

                You think Yamahas tech support is bad, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Wait till you try to get ahold of Hiroshi .

                I almost forgot, Welcome
