3. Press the [F3] button

4. Set the Accent Velocity to OFF

5. Set the MIDI out sw to ON.

6. Set the MIDI out ch to 10

7. Press the [F2] button

8. Set the Voice with arp to ON

9. Press the [F1] button

10. Set the Volume to 0

NOTE: This is done because there is no need to hear the drums from the XS, since the DTXM12 drums will be used.

11. Store this info along with the rest of your performance you’re creating

Setting up and assigning the master and
the master transmit channel.

NOTE: This is the section that will be used for triggering the DTXM12. Keep in mind that this is NOT setting board

12. Press the [F1] button.

13. INT Switch for ZONE 1 is the only box to be checked.

NOTE: Use the 1-16 buttons and remove all checkmarks other than what's used in INT Switch for zone 1. This is also where the XS is assigned to transmit to an external unit, using zone 8 (in this
example). Settings limits for that zone are covered later.

14. Press the number [ 8 ] button.

15. Use the data wheel to set the receive channel to 10 (default channel for drums).

21. Press the [SF2] button

NOTE: Make sure Zone 8 has NO checks

22. Press the [F4] button

NOTE: This is the screen used to assign PC (program change) which is the MSB, LSB, and PC numbers), one
of the 2 below will be used.

The DTXM12 USER 1 bank is:

MSB -125
LSB - 001
PC - 1-127 which = user slots 1-100

The DTXM12 USER 2 bank is:

MSB -125
LSB - 002
PC - 1-127 which = user slots 101-200

NOTE: As an example, if a drum kit was stored in user 2, slot 4, and the XS needed to send a command for it, it would look like this:

MSB -125

LSB - 002
PC - 004

23. Press the [STORE] button.

24. Press the [ENTER] button
