Play along with the pre recorded drum track, or mute the drums and play along with the rhythm and melody tracks. This is a great tool for developing your groove and the nuances of playing different musical styles. You can plug your MP3 or CD player into the auxiliary input and play along with your favorite pre recorded music. You can also record your playing with the internal sequencer to analyze your playing.
The DXPIII kit comes with a stereo snake cable with labeled jacks. This makes it easier to hook everything up out of the box, and faster to hook it all up again if you are moving the kit to gigs or recording sessions.
The DXPIII kit is mounted on a compact drum rack so it won't take up a lot of space when you are playing. When not in use the kit folds flat for storage in a closet without having to disassemble the rack or remove the pads.
Engage the Groove Check feature while using the click or while playing a song and DXPIII will show your beat placement accuracy. It indicates if you are ahead of, behind, or right on the beat and shows any fluctuation in your playing accuracy.
The TP65S three zone pad gives you the snare, rim shot, and cross stick sound all from the same pad. This allows for a performance that is very much like playing on an acoustic snare drum.
You can access the 125 General MIDI voices from a controller or transmit other MIDI information between the DXPIII and any other MIDI device via the MIDI IN/OUT. You can transmit MIDI data to and from your computer via the TO HOST jack to store kits or sequences on your computer.
