Default Re: How to turn off the multi-zone option of the pads connected to a Yamaha DTX 500 module?

I just want to turn this option off so that wherever on the pad I hit it sounds the same.

A simple way to make a 3 zone pad such as a XP80 into a single zone pad such as a TP65 is to simply switch the pad type in the trigger settings menu. But this will change the pad's response to a drumstick strike.

The other way to make the 3 zone pad into a single zone pad is to assign the same voices (sample sounds) to all three zones through the drum kit menu.

Hope this helps,
