I knew it was in the works for a while, but to see it actually presented, was a true suprise on a regular Wednesday.

Love the trowback to the older RHP pads (always loved those more then any other pad out there, except for the silicone models) and they seem to be heavy updated too:

Interesting are the specs for the module for me too (including the Rec n Share app), and as always the real sampled sounds that I always loved from Yamaha.

Had a chance to demo both the DTX8 and the 10. Worth the wait. The fact that both can be purchased as mesh OR the textured silicon pads is great. These will do well.

So what’s new? Mesh heads and the module right? The rest of the stuff has already been out there.

what’s the biggest difference between the DT6 module and the new one?

From what I see on the website now, the ride, pads, and the module.

Quite the upgrades.


I had already watched and posted that video above

so the cymbals are new sizes, but they are not a new product; same 3 zone stuff like 135 and 155 or did I miss something?

17" ride is new, all snare + tom pads are new (both the silicon and mesh pads), new kick pad for the DTX10 configuration

New module has
- multi outs (10 on the ProX vs 2 on the Pro)
- MIDI In
- Bluetooth audio
- Setlist functionality
- more physical controls (the rotary faders are SLICK)
- multiple aux in and headphone out jacks
- ~4x the sample space

Yup, looks like the same as the 135/155, just the bigger 17" size. Which is great -- the Yamaha cymbals are best-in-class, IMO.

My bad indeed.
That should have been these:

no worries, it’s all good; I appreciate the info! Thx!

So are the samples in the DTX6 and the the new Pro module the same; more plus the same sample or completely new to the new module I wonder?

From mr DTX Simon Edgoose:
The PRO is the same module as on the 6. It also comes with the 8. However, the PRO-X that comes with the 10 is up a level (or three) with more detail in the samples, more samples, more kits, more features and some incredibly good "live" functionality. If you get to look at the manual, check out "Live Set" audio playing and "Guide Audio".

Althought I have to add, if you use the DTXtreme III/900 with 1gb memory and the upgrade packs (like the PHX model) you’d still have a killer module that beats Roland in sound any day.

So far, the only two limitation I've run into that really bugged me on the Multi12 is giving up round robin samples to do velocity layering, and the stupid global midi thing.

Hoping they fix that. Or not, because then I'd be tempted to upgrade.

I just bought a DTX Multi 12.
11 year old technology, LOL!
But it's still great! Still would be nice to see a
future upgrade though.
