In addition to a collection of essential Yamaha acoustic drum sounds, the DTX900 also features a broad spectrum of voices taken from the world renowned MOTIF series synthesizers for a grand total of 1326 sounds. The XA (Expanded Articulation) System, which creates subtly different samples even when you strike the drum with the same strength, can create more natural snare rolls and re-create the feel of a legato ride cymbal or staccato hi-hat. In addition to reverb and chorus effects that can be used throughout the whole system, there are variation effects that can be used on each drum kit to bring out the perfect sound you need. The DTX900 module is capable of importing and layering samples (with optional DIMM installed), and there is a growing library of third party DTX sounds and compatible VST instruments available so you’ll never run out of new sonic possibilities. And speaking of possibilities, the unique Stack/Alternate functions allow you to play basslines, chords and melodies on any pad using just your sticks! And the popular Groove Check and Rhythm Gate features can be used with the click, or any of the 87 preset songs. With 15 trigger inputs, large backlit LCD, built-in mixer, six individual outputs, SPDIF digital output, and 2 USB ports - the DTX900 handles the most demanding needs of professional drummers. Includes CubaseAI for Mac/PC computer music production.
