For those DTX502 owners out there who don't own an iOS device, Yamaha is providing a downloadable updater file for PC (Windows OS, not Mac) to help update the firmware on the unit to the latest version as of this post - V1.30.
Players that use their DTX502 kit live appreciate the option of sending the Metronome or "Click" out to the PA independently of the Kit output for monitoring purposes, a task easily accomplished by the DTX502.
Although the DTX502 is great-sounding out of the box, it offers users the ability to customize its Kits to best fit their playing style and dynamic. Editing the Pad Volume is one of the ways users can make a Kit their own.
The preconfigured kits for the DTX502 - DTX522K, DTX532K, DTX562K - give customers a wide range of options for triggering and playing. In addition, users can add up to four single-zone pads to their kit via the Kick and Tom inputs. Pads that were multi-zone initially, become single zone when their trigger input is shared.
