Show All
  • Can I use the DM6 Kit with a different drum module?

    You will need to purchase separate 1/4" cables to connect the pad and cymbal triggers to your module or interface since the DM6 module uses its own special "snake"-style connector instead of having several separate cables. (Note: Be sure to use TRS cables for the snare drum and hi-hat control/pedal. The other pads and cymbals use TS cables.)

    The included DM6 module can also be used as a trigger-to-MIDI interface (see manual for details).
