An all-new set of voices makes this the best sounding DTXPRESS kit yet. The Special version shares the same module as the Standard, but has a larger snare pad and more cymbals with our real hi hat pad. With the new learning tools in the module you have the ideal electronic drum kit for practice, teaching, or gigging around town.
50 Preset drum kits
An all-new set of voices, using larger files make the DXPRESS IV Special the best sounding DTXPRESS kit yet. With input from our artists, we have programmed 50 great sounding preset kits built using samples our most popular acoustic kits. Oak Custom, Maple Custom, Beech Custom, Recording Custom, as well as a wide selection of ready-to-play kits ideal for any musical situation.
427 Drum and Percussion voices
Inside the box, there is a great selection of high-quality voices that you can use to build 20 custom kits for when you want to think "outside the box". There are lots of acoustic drums to choose from, as well as percussion instruments from around the world. You will also find some killer special effects voices that take away any limits on your creativity.
22 keyboard voices
The DXPRESS IV module has 22 keyboard voices that you can trigger from the pads. This allows you to trigger melodic patterns or program melodic loops into the on-board sequencer that you can use as part of your live performance.
Great feeling pads
The pads on the DXPRESS IV Special have natural rebound and great dynamic response so you will be able to get express all of your musical ideas. The special kit has a 3 zone snare with pad controller that lets you make snare tension adjustments, change the pitch, or alter the tempo of a sequence that you are playing to. There are 3 toms, a 3-zone crash, a mono crash, and a 3-zone ride. The cymbal pads are round, and have a natural swing and rebound for realistic feel. The hi hat pad mounts to a real hi hat stand (that's included with the kit), and responds much like an acoustic hi hat. The kick tower feels very much like an acoustic kick, and will accept a double pedal. When you want to expand, you can split the tom and kick inputs to add more pads.
The DXPRESS IV has a built in sequencer that allows you to record your performance in real time. There are 44 prerecorded full-length songs and 19 pad songs to play along with, and 20 user songs that you can use to record your own loops, songs or patterns. You can mute the drum part so that you can play without a drum track, or you can also mute the rhythm track to play along with only a bass line. You can assign any of these songs to any pad in the kit, and then start or stop the song by hitting the pad. To give you even more musical choices, you can plug your CD or MP3 player into the AUX IN of the module and play along with your favorite music.
The module has a programmable metronome that can play subdivisions of quarter, eighth, sixteenth, or triplets. You can control the volume of each subdivision to give the patterns a different feel. The metronome has 30 user patterns that you can save so you can recall patterns that you use frequently for teaching or practice. The click also has a feature we call Rhythm Gate that will mute the drum voices if you are out of time with the click.
