"A high-grade sound module that inspires creativity"

The DTX-PRO is a next-generation sound module that has same sound engine of DTX-PROX flagship sound module. The DTX-PRO takes sound quality, functionality, and usability to new heights. The KIT MODIFIER feature allows you to instantly create your sound just by turning the three KIT MODIFIER knobs - AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. These alter the effects and ambience of the sounds, which were sampled in some of the most noted studios in the world. The MODIFIER knobs are a great stimulus to creativity, giving drummers the freedom to create their own signature sounds.

The DTX-PRO module brings more realism, more enjoyment, more fun, and more freedom to your music than ever before.


Real sounds that drive the drummer

No compromise has been made in recording the sound of the instruments themselves. The DTX PRO sounds have been fine-tuned to naturally follow the drummer’s performance and allow for maximum expression.

The acoustic drum sounds built into the DTX-PRO are all real sounds recorded in best recording studios in the world. As well as recording the direct drum sounds though, the unique natural room ambience of the studios where they were recorded, was also sampled.

Performances by leading Yamaha drums artists were recorded and mixed by a team of recording engineer to give the final instrument samples. The project sound director, an electronic musical instrument development professional, specified exacting recording techniques to capture the full detailed sound of each drum and cymbal, from the initial attack, until the very end of the natural sound.

The DTX pads, the drummer’s interface with their instrument, have been carefully matched to the DTX-PRO Module to offer excellent expressive capabilities.

Intuitive functionality that stirs creativity

The KIT MODIFIER knobs featured on the DTX-PRO offers drummers limitless possibilities for their creativity.

The KIT MODIFIERs condense the sound creation know-how that Yamaha has accumulated over decades into three knobs: AMBIENCE, COMPRESSION, and EFFECT. A wide range of tonal possibilities are available thanks to Yamaha engineers — from the natural sound of acoustic drums, through to live performance sounds, to heavily effected sounds.

The AMBIENCE knob controls the natural ambience and reverb of the drum kit sound. On acoustic drum sounds, the AMBIENCE MODIFIER controls the real recorded natural ambience from 0-50%. When turned up higher than 50%, high quality digital reverb is also introduced to the sound.

The COMP and EFFECT knobs utilize the "1-knob" control technology featured in many Yamaha PA products.

The COMP adds one-knob compression to the whole kit sound, from subtle to very obvious, while EFFECT controls the mix of the two internal effects processors. The processors are fully adjustable and have a long list of available effects to choose from.

A high-performance sound engine that allows for total sound creation

The high-performance sound engine in the DTX-PRO module leverages the technologies that Yamaha has acquired over decades of making musical instruments of all kinds.

The sound engine in the DTX-PRO is same of flagship sound module DTX-PROX.

Every single channel of the DTX-PRO module has three band, sweepable EQ, channel compression (in addition to the general kit compression), Transient Adjustment (where the Attack and Release of each sound are individually adjustable) and Insertion effects, which all go to help let drummers recreate their favorite drum sounds.

Easy recording, editing, and sharing with the Rec'n'Share App

The DTX-PRO is compatible with the iOS/Android App Rec’n’Share, allowing you to play along with music tracks, and efficiently practice your songs.

The app allows tracks to have their tempo changed, an click track can be added to tracks without one, and sections of the audio can be looped for easier practice. These and other functions let you practice more efficiently with your favorite songs.

The Rec’n’Share App can also be used to record your playing, but it also allows drum videos to be quickly and easily made, by using the audio from the DTX-PRO, and the video capture of the attached device. Videos can be trimmed and edited, mixes changed, and the final result can easily shared directly from the app.
