Good for practice, OK for studio work

Carlos Y., 11.11.2014
I got the Yamaha DD-65 to use exclusively in my home studio, just to be able to trigger sounds from an external module, and completely bypass the built-in sounds. I also got a snare stand and an additional power supply (and you should too).

The kit is clearly geared towards beginners, considering its many built-in songs you can use to learn how to play -- myself, I never used them so far, but they are probably a good thing to have.

As a MIDI controller, it works as expected. The sensitivity, thankfully, is selectable, and the hand-percussion feature is surprisingly well-executed. Velocity, flams, and ghost notes are all faithfully transmitted.

One gripe I have is that the DD-65 doesn't send the MIDI notes which Logic Pro X's drumsets expect, so you'll have to assign the right notes before you can start to play.

All in all, a good purchase for its price. However, if you are thinking of using it for studio work, you might outgrow it more quickly than you would have liked.

Excellent tool for data entry.

Carl J., 14.03.2014
I've been using these electronic drums for over a year now to record MIDI-drums into Apple Logic. My songs really come to life when the drums ar recorded with the drum kit. The layout is well thought out and the angled pads for cymbals is pure genius. The built in sounds are not very exciting but that's not an issue when using the kit for data entry as the sounds in Apple Logic are excellent.

My little three year old grandson has often let loose on the drum set without damaging it and that's saying a lot.

Trying to edit the instrument is quite hard to do with a small display. Let's hope the next model har USB and an editor for Mac.
