A New Level of Sound Quality
The DTX502 Module features a massive 691 voices that include samples from our world-class acoustic drum kits plus an incredible collection of new drum and cymbal sounds we've licensed from VST developers and optimised for DTX. Combined with voices taken from our flagship DTX models, the DTX502 module has an huge internal library that delivers authentic drums with true variety. There are 50 preset drum kits that cover traditional styles including Rock, Jazz and Pop as well as modern Dubstep, Electronica, Hip-hop, Metal and Punk genres.
Import Custom Sounds for More Creativity
With the DTX502 Module, you can load in your own samples - which you can then assign to the DTX pads or triggers - letting you create a truly unique kit.
Requires the free MusicSoft Downloader application, a maximum of 20 different samples with a combined maximum duration of 12 seconds. (sampling rate 44.1kHz, 16-bit, mono). The internal memory of the DTX502 is also used by any MIDI files you load in which will reduce the memory available for sample storage.
Advanced Technology Under The Hood
Using proprietary laser technology to analyse drum strokes, we've precisely tuned the trigger settings on the DTX502 Series resulting in an authentic, natural feel with laser accuracy. It also includes advanced features from our higher-end models such as cymbal muting, natural cymbal swells and smoother snare drumrolls, allowing the kit to respond to every nuance of your playing.
Updated Practice Functions With Scoring
The DTX502 includes a brilliant drum training system to challenge you no matter your current skill level - every time you practice. Using these will help you improve the key skills in drumming - from rhythmic timing to pad accuracy and endurance. The system will even give you a score making it easy to track your progress as you improve.
New Design Offers Versatile Trigger and Upgrade Options
We've included two drum triggers to attach to your acoustic drums and 3 DTX Pads in the Hybrid Extension Pack. But the DTX502 Module allows you to connect additional DTX pads, cymbals and hi-hats - letting your hybrid kit evolve as your performances do.
TCS DTX Pads
We've been making some of the world's most sought-after acoustic kits for more than 40 years. In that time, we've built up a deep and highly detailed knowledge of how to make the most responsive, best sounding drums. When it came to designing a DTX pad which would feel like the real thing, we used our knowledge to create and optimise our Textured Cellular Silicone material (TCS).
By controlling the sizes and concentrations of tiny bubbles within the TCS, we've created a selection of different pads that respond like real snares and toms. To refine them, we employed some of the world's top drummers to test real-world performance - so that DTX Pads play just like acoustic drums.
With the 3-Zone XP100SD Snare, we've divided the pad into three zones and built in support for playing open and closed rimshots. If wanted, you can assign completely different sounds to the three zones and we've added a dial which gives you hands-on control of the virtual snare wire tuning and lets you adjust effects.
DT20 Drum Triggers Included
Drum triggers are small sensors which attach to acoustic drum shells and heads (and can also be used with drum practice pads). Fine-tuned to register both the subtle and not-so-subtle vibrations of the drum when you're playing, the trigger and DTX502 module can play back a sound or sample of your choice, at the same time (and every time) you hit or kick the drum.
