“By supporting users with an easy interface to customize their instrument, we offer enhanced value that only comes with Yamaha DTX products,” said Steven Fisher, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums, Yamaha Corporation of America.

Yamaha today announced the introduction of DTX502 Touch, a new iOS app for its award-winning DTX502 series of electronic drums. Yamaha is the only drum company that supports its electronic drum products with free apps, providing added value to customers by expanding their experience with the product and allowing them to get more enjoyment from Yamaha DTX drums.

The DTX502 Touch app lets the user control all the features of the DTX502 module using their iOS touch-screen when connected via USB. It provides easy sound editing and layering for each pad of any kit to create up to 50 custom user kits. Custom Click, Menu and Trigger settings can also be saved and all user data is backed up inside the app. The DTX502 Touch app bridges the gap between drummers and technology, yielding professional results without requiring a degree in programming.

This is the fifth free app from Yamaha to support the DTX product line and it joins the DTX400 Touch, DTX400 Drum Lessons, Song Beats and MusicSoft Manager to form a comprehensive suite of educational and operational tools.

“Yamaha is way ahead of the curve by offering apps for our DXT502 and DTX400 series electronic drums,” said Steven Fisher, marketing manager, Yamaha Drums, Yamaha Corporation of America. “By supporting users with an easy interface to customize their instrument, we offer enhanced value that only comes with Yamaha DTX products.”

Depending on the iOS device used, these apps require a Yamaha iUX-1 cable or an Apple Camera Connection Kit with standard USB cable. A 30 Pin to Lightning adaptor may also be necessary.
