Yamaha today introduced new John Melas-designed editing software for the acclaimed DTX700 drum trigger module.

The DTX700 Editor, available for Windows and Mac OSX, allows users to customize all of the internal sounds as well as any user-uploaded files in the DTX700 electronic drum kit sound module, making programming and editing of custom kits a simple process. In addition to editing the most critical sound parameters, a DTX700 Librarian is included so that musicians can easily arrange and save their newly created kits with a convenient graphic interface.

The intuitive software package eliminates the need for time consuming multi-page navigation on the trigger module screen, letting users modify the sounds and features, helping to foster creativity. Exceptional graphics enhance the editor’s features and all edited DTX programs can easily be saved on a computer.

“These tools offer drummers a powerful and easy-to-use solution for editing and managing their DTX700 sounds,” said Tom Griffin, Yamaha Electronic Drum Product Specialist. “With this software, users can streamline the process of customizing their kits to their specific preferences and spend more time playing them.”

Melas, a software engineer based in Athens, has a long history with Yamaha, programming applications for the MOTIF Synthesizer Workstations, MOTIF Effects Racks, the S90 stage synths and the MOX synths, among others.
