Default Using an XP80 as a tom pad on the Yamaha DTX502

Hi,

I'm considering getting a larger snare pad (XP120SD)for my Yamaha DTX562K kit and I was wondering if I could use my current XP80 snare pad as a tom pad.

I tried connecting the XP80 to one of the tom inputs but I'm getting a loud hissing noise when it's connected to the tom 1 or tom 2 inputs. When it's connected to the the tom 3 input I only get that noise when I touch the rim on either side of the pad.

Setting the pad type to XP80 under the trigger setup menu didn't seem to make any difference. Am I missing something?

Is it possible to use an XP80 as a tom pad and setting a different voice for the rim (e.g. a cowbell sound)?

Anybody out there using an XP80 as a tom pad?

You can use the XP80 as tom pad usually the floor tom since it's bigger. First set up the module for the XP80 in the trigger settings as XP80. Then go to Kit Voice and select no assign for pad 12. This will eliminate the hissing sound and unfortunately the XP80 will be a big single zone pad.

Hope this helps,

Right, setting the pad 12 to no-assign solved the problem. Thanks!

I guess it doesn't make much sense to keep the XP80 then and instead I could try and trade it for a (cheaper) XP70.

Good to hear the no-assign solved the issue. Try playing the XP80 as a floor tom, it's hard to go to a smaller pad afterward. But then again I like the large XP120T tom pads.
