Yamaha DTXM12


All-in-one percussion instrument! 

For all levels, all genres and all situations! - The most advanced all-in-one percussion instrument suitable for everyone from beginner to professional and for all styles and situations.

The DTX-MULTI 12 is equipped with 12 pads that are easy to use - even on a dark stage. You can use the DTX-MULTI 12 in a variety of ways; for example, as a percussion pad with acoustic drums or as an extra spice with a variety of sounds for almost any kind of music. 
Or how about using it as an "input-device" for a computer with the included Cubase AI5, so you can program drums with the stylus instead of the mouse? 
If you plug in the bass drum pedal, you have a completely compact drum kit! 

In addition to the many sounds from our world-famous MOTIF series of synthesizers, the DTX-MULTI 12 also features many new percussion sounds, recorded with Yamaha's advanced sampling techniques - a total of 1277 built-in sounds! The DTX-MULTI 12 also features sounds for DJ use, a wide range of percussion, chromatic percussion, folk and acoustic instruments. 
You can also import your own WAV and AIFF files from USB memory. DTX-MULTI 12 can thus act as a sample playback device with 64MB Flash ROM. Add to this a great reverb, chorus and other effects that can also be used on entire drum kits.
