Default Yamaha DTX Snare And Bass Too Low

Hello all:

I just set up the Yamaha DTX562K.

So far so good, but the snare and the bass are WAY too low (volume) - especially in comparison to the toms and cymbals which sound great.

I tried adjusting the parameters in the "mixer" settings, but it did not work.

I checked all of the cables as well. Any tips for troubleshooting?

Thanks a million!

I don't own a DTX500 series kit, but I've had pad sensitivity problems with my DTX Multi-12 before I increased pad input gains, and then fine-tuned the voice volume for each pad.
So check those settings for the Snare and Kick compared to the Toms, and adjust the Trigger input gain (DTX502 manual page 68) and Kit voice volume (page 59) as required.
Also check for any pad crosstalk issues after increasing the trigger gains, then save your new settings in one of the User trigger setups (15 to 30) and select it in the Trigger setup menu (page 66).

If tweaking the trigger input gains did the trick, I'm wondering by how much you increased the snare and bass/kick levels to match the other pads.

On the DTX Multi-12 I bumped up most of the trigger gains from 20 to 45 for all the pads, without any crosstalk issues (the external snare and kick inputs had their gains set to only 1 for all the preset trigger setups). So I'm a bit surprised if the newer kits have a similar problem.
