Sonic State takes a look at the Yamaha DTX-12 Multi Pad, a $700 percussion pad system that features 12 stepped pads.
In addition to voices taken from the Yamaha MOTIF series synthesizers, the DTX-MULTI 12 also features percussion sounds, for a total of 1,277 voices:
- The DTX-MULTI 12 includes not only digital sounds but also DJ sounds and a rich variety of voices from percussion, chromatic percussion, folk, and acoustic drum instruments.
- You can also import WAV and AIFF audio files from a USB memory device and use them as voices.
- The DTX-MULTI 12 functions as a sample playback device with 64MB of battery backed Flash ROM.
- Together with reverb and chorus effects that can be applied to entire drum kits, the DTX-MULTI 12 also features a Variation effect unit that can be used to enhance individual voices in many exciting ways.
