DTXM12 Touch is a dedicated iPad app that provides powerful support to drummers and percussionists who use the DTX-MULTI12 on-stage. Working hand-in-hand with a DTX-MULTI12, it offers the following functionality. ・ Display of pad assignments for the currently selected kit Rather than being limited to text alone, DTXM12 Touch can also display assignments using pictures. Furthermore, the display can be used to confirm the way in which voice layers and function assignments are configured. ・ Changing pad assignments for the currently selected kit In addition to the DTX-MULTI12’s built-in voices and functions, DTXM12 Touch lets you assign audio data (.wav, .aiff, .mp3, etc.) imported from Dropbox as well as content from your iPad’s music library. ・ Displaying and editing the kit list Using DTXM12 Touch, you can arrange kits to match your set list so that the kit data to be used on-stage can be managed much more conveniently. Within the kit list, you can rename, rearrange, and delete kits. Meanwhile, the App Pad function (App Kit inc/dec) makes it possible to switch kits on-stage much more smoothly. ・ Required Connection USB Connection: Core MIDI compatible interface (e.g. Yamaha i-UX1) Audio Connection: Stereo cable (mini stereo to standard stereo) from the headphone jack on iPad to the AUX IN jack on DTX-MULTI12



  • Need an update

    Crashes frequently otherwise it’s an amazing feature for your Dtx12.
  • Time for an update!

    Was a pretty useful app but no longer functions reliably on either an IPad 4 with 10.3.3 nor 2 year old Ipad with 11.2.6. Keeps freezing and crashing. When using wav files, the app does not show the file names, simply wav 01, 02, etc. This makes using wav files even the Yamaha drumkit package unnecessarily difficult to use. The Yamaha interface is tough to learn, but much easier to use for many functions.
  • Makes my most versatile gear more versatile.

    I've never had an issue with it, I'm running on an iPad 2 and the only problem I experience is related to the 32 pin connector falling out due to its own weight. This app makes up for the most irritating feature of the m12: the clunky interface. I can set tempos, effects volumes with ease for an entire set and propagate them to the m12 in a fraction of what it used to take. I took away a star for the crummy documentation, but after a couple sessions I was navigating the application with relative ease. Now, if I could only figure out a way to expand the memory on the m12 to a gig or so...
  • Does not work on iOS 10.3.1

    By Porcaria Detector
    WIt was working fine until my last iOS update. It tells me that "this device cannot be connected to this iPad". Please update this app to be compatible. Three stars because I cannot copy pads between kits. Otherwise pretty handy compared to that nightmare of navigating that little display on the Multi12.
  • Incredible app

    By rincon6
    I found out about this app by pure luck. Never saw it advertised. The amount of flexibility it adds to the DTXM12 is amazing. You can edit kits, pads, effects, voices, and mix, etc., easily and very quick all from the iPad. The interface is intuitive and looks good. I had it up and running in minutes. Best of all... You can access and assign loops and samples to pads via iTunes and other file sharing apps. That's absolutely incredible. I have 50gb of samples on my iPad that I can access and use with the DTXM now. This just made this thing more flexible and better than the competition, specifically the SPD-SX. Thank you Yamaha for making this app. You guys should advertise it more. By the way, I have the DTXM connected to the iPad via apple's USB to lightening connection kit. That and a standard USB cable is all you need. The manual is under the settings tab.
  • Three For Potential...

    By Jeff_Jewett
    I can't find a manual of any kind so trying to bumble my way through this program without messing up my Multi 12 is a challenge. Hoping to find a discussion board where folks have used this program. Did discover you need to set the MIDI output to USB (Utilities Menu) as that isn't the default.
  • Worthless, but it was free

    By King Daddy Rabbit
    I could never get this app to connect with my m12, it's completely useless. Try again Yamaha
  • Great Start, needs more soon! Thanks, Yamaha!

    By Remo Evans
    First off, this app os a godsend for those of us who use this great pad. It makes programming voices soon much easier. So far it seems very stable. Wish list: 1. Editing of other pad/system parameters ESPECIALLY individual pad sensitivity. 2. Yamaha needs to sell a specialized cable the will POWER THE IPAD while connected and have a Lightning connector. Yamaha, you’re missing an opportunity here. 3. Needs a built in picture library for all internal instruments. 4. Needs a play mode where if you touch the pads on screen, they play the sound on the device. That’s what it will take to earn the extra two stars from me. Thanks, Yamaha, for finally coming through for this instrument!
