Hi all, I just bought my first real electronic kit, a Yamaha DTX760HWK. I haven't had much time to spend with it yet, but I would appreciate any tips, cool ideas, advice, things to try, from those who are experienced with the Yamaha DTX 700 series. What are some cool things you're doing with yours? Looking forward to using my real electronic kit (my previous one was about as bottom-of-the-line as they come, just inches above "toy" status). Thanks!

Congrats. Enjoy it. I have a DTX562k with Gen16 cymbals I added. Really didn't like the feel of the cymbals it came with. It's my silent practice setup. Gets the job done.

Thanks. What do you not like about the cymbals?

I'm curious to know how the module samples stack up to something like EZ drummer. I've made the mistake of connecting ezdrummer to my 502 module and now am thinking about buying a 7 series brain if it's close to the VST. I could just use the VST but hate having a computer involved in my set up plus there is some latency. Have you tried it? Are the 7 series sounds really great? I would think the answer is a definite yes but I've no way to compare.

This is all subjective really.

Yamaha modules contain samples of Yamaha acoustic kits. Unlike some kits which just use models.

The audience will never tell the difference anyway. Most the sounds of any drum kit live is dependant on the PA / Speakers, Sound guy, EQ, FX, venue, number of punters in the audience, music style, mix, etc etc etc.

(only module sounds for me over 3 decades of hitting 'em live)
