        Needs a firmware update for Hi-Hat!!!

          Comments about Yamaha All-In-One Compact Portable Digital Drum Kit:

          I use this kit in my home studio. I would like to use it with some of my drum software but the Hi-Hat does not trigger the midi properly. For this reason I would not recommend this unit if you are trying to use it as a midi controller.

          Yamaha!!!!! Please create a firmware update for this unit!!!! Hi-Hat midi messages need to be fixed for use with computer software.

          Needs only individual pad volume

          By Mike

          from Florida

            • Accompaniment
            • Small Venues

            Comments about Yamaha All-In-One Compact Portable Digital Drum Kit:

            This is an excellent unit with the potential - in good hands - of providing a reasonable alternative to musicians playing in small venues or with limited space. What handicaps this unit is that within a kit, and aside of the overall system sensitivity, there is no way to control individual pad volume. The addition of that feature alone would elevate this unit to a whole new level and make it a real useful instrument.

              Comments about Yamaha All-In-One Compact Portable Digital Drum Kit:

              The DD65 is perfect for what I use it for. As a hobby, I use looping software to create songs that I lay live drum tracks to. I have a small house and have been using similar drum sets for a long time for space/volume reasons. The set that I had for the past fifteen years finally died (it was a pad-set that needed an external sound module) and I wanted something that had sounds in it. This way, I could minimize the amount of programming I had to do. As soon as I plugged this in, I was off and running. The pad set up is pretty natural for a drummer and the pads themselves have a bounce like a practice pad. The biggest issue is that the pedals that come with it are really just buttons and difficult to use, but I am sure I could have adjusted if I needed to. Luckily, I have traditional electronic pedals from my old digital drum set that I use instead. If I didn't, I would have upgraded at some point. The built in speakers are not loud enough to cover the "tapping" of the sticks on the pads, so I don't use them. I have a small pair of powered studio speakers and headphones, both of which provide plenty of volume to show off the surprisingly good sound quality found inside the unit. I give the DD65 a five star rating based on how well it meets my needs, what I use it for, and the fact that it is better than I would have expected at this price level.
