  • Is Yamaha's DTXTREME that bad?

    Is the DTXTREME module that bad?
    I haven't read any good reviews/comments about YAMAHA'S DTXTREME SET. Most of the *****ing is about the practice-pad-like feeling of the pads. I could give a **** about the pads, I just wanna trigger my acoustic drums, so all I need is the module, and triggers. Musicians Friend is selling the ****en thing for $800 bucks, man that's not bad at all.

    Is the DTXTREME good for acoustic triggering?

    I know that you can load your own samples, can anyone tell me more about this?

    Are DDRUM triggers, and PERFECT TRIGGERS compatible with the DTXTREME Module?

    Is there good ol' machine-gun going on(I hope not)?

    If you run a search here there are plenty of reviews on the module itself. It does seem to be held in poor regard, although I think there are a few who like it.

    One thing is for sure, you ain't finding it at any of the Guitar Centers I've been to in Los Angeles.

    The new DTXpress, however, is a sweet little thing I've played with. If only they would make 3 zone cymbals to match the 3 zone inputs it would really give the V-Club/TD-6 some serious competition. Who knows, maybe the PCY-150 3zone cymbal refered to in the DTXpress manual means there will be a DTXtreme with 3zone inputs sometime in the future (after they figure out what to do with all the unsold old ones). Or maybe there won't.

          I'm as staunch a Yamaha guy as you can find and yes Virginia, it's that bad. The Drum sounds are decent and the special snares sound great, hats are great, cymbals are poor. The outputs distort, I'm not kidding, POS. Wait till winter NAMM and see if they come out with something better, they're supposed to. As far as the pads, don't know, didn't try them.

            I'm a bit rusty with my phrasing, but it came back to me a little easier than I thought it would. Point made.

            I second Tom's comments in the duplicate post.

            You're welcome around these parts Savin, we're glad to help out when we can, we can't censure you, but we can ask to tone down just a tad.

            thanks.....

              I heard the same from everyone Feefer, I just wanted to see for myself, I just couldn't believe that Yamaha could screw up that badly.
