  • DTX580?

    The latest edition of Digital Drummer magazine mentions Yamaha presenting a new DTX580 kit at MusikMesse in Frankfurt. There aren't any details other than that it's based on the DTX502 and that it "is plug and play with Cubase and can be used as a MIDI controller without any additional drivers".

    Does anyone know more about this?

    Well, that probably sums it up.

    It is the DTX502 module, some pads around it, and it comes with Cubase, that you install on your computer and control via the DTX module.

    For example, you can assign a pad to start/stop MIDI loops or other events just by hitting that pad.

        No, they didn't "re-brand" a "new" module.

        It's the same DTX-502 module, offered with a mix of acoustics and triggered pads.

        You get an acoustic kit, along with a module and some extra pads to trigger samples.
        Most people do this on their own, but they decided to offer a kit already laid out.

        Not exactly the sampled module we would like to get, but at least something different than anybody else out there.

          What they've done here is nothing like the rebranding that goes on with Alesis/Simmons/KAT in which products made by a 3rd party, in this case Medeli, are in turn rebranded (and to their credit in some cases modified like the KT3 module) and sold. Yamaha and Roland, while I'm sure have a factory setup in Asia not unlike Medeli, their gear is always just "their gear".

          Yamaha is essentially taking the same approach they always have: take a module and build different kits around it using progressively higher end components. Hence you get the DTX522K/532K/562K "line". I assume they'll plop this hybrid-ey kit in there the same way.
