Caution
This symbol indicates explanations about
dangerous matters. If users ignore this
symbol and handle the device the wrong
way, bodily injury and damage to the
equipment could result.
Please observe the following safety tips and precautions
to ensure hazard-free use of the RT-323.
About power
Warning Since power consumption of this unit is fairly high,
we recommend the use of an AC adapter whenever
possible. When powering the unit from a battery, use
only an alkaline type.
AC adapter operation
• Be sure to use only an AC adapter which supplies
9 V DC, 300 mA and is equipped with a "center
minus" plug (Zoom AD-0006).
The use of an adapter other than the specified
type may damage the unit and pose a safety
hazard.
• Connect the AC adapter only to an AC outlet that
supplies the rated voltage required by the adapter.
• When disconnecting the AC adapter from the AC
outlet, always grasp the adapter itself and do not
pull at the cable.
• If the unit is not to be used for a long time,
disconnect the AC adapter from the outlet.
Battery operation
• Use six IEC R6 (size AA) batteries (alkaline or
manganese).
• The RT-323 cannot be used for recharging.
Pay close attention to the labelling of the battery
to make sure you choose the correct type.
• If the RT-323 is not to be used for an extended
period of time, remove the battery from the unit.
• If batteries leakage has occurred, wipe the battery
compartment and the battery terminals carefully
to remove all remnants of battery fluid.
• While using the unit, the battery compartment
cover should be closed.
Environment
Caution Avoid using your RT-323 in environments where it
2
will be exposed to:
• Extreme temperature
• High humidity or moisture
• Excessive dust or sand
• Excessive vibration or shock
Handling
Caution • Since the RT-323 is a precision electronic device,
avoid applying excessive force to the controls.
Do not operate the keys or controls with your
foot.
• Take care that no foreign objects (coins or pins
etc.) or liquids can enter the unit.
• Be sure to turn the power to all equipment off
before making connections.
• Before moving the unit, turn the power off, and
disconnect all cables and the AC adapter.
Alterations
Caution Never open the case of the RT-323 or attempt to
modify the product in any way since this can result
in damage to the unit.
In Case of Trouble
Caution If there seems to be a defect or a problem with the
unit, immediately disconnect the AC adapter or
remove the batteries to shut off the power. Then
disconnect any other cables connected to the unit.
Usage Precautions
• Electrical interference
For safety considerations, the RT-323 has been
designed to provide maximum protection against the
emission of electromagnetic radiation from inside the
device, and protection from external interference.
However, equipment that is very susceptible to
interference or that emits powerful electromagnetic
waves should not be placed near the RT-323, as the
possibility of interference cannot be ruled out entirely.

A pattern of the RT-323 is a stored combination
of two drum kits and one bass program. The
location for each individual drum kit or bass
program is called a track. Therefore a pattern of
the RT-323 consists of the drum A track, drum
B track, and the bass track. Drum tracks A and
B each contain a specific drum kit and the bass
track contains a bass program.
The RT-323 contains 400 read-only patterns

Hands-on Lessons
To erase an existing song to make it empty, see page 68.
The RT-323 allows you to line up patterns in a desired order to create an entire backing sequence
(song). This section contains several lessons that will show you how you can use the
preprogrammed patterns to create your original songs.
● Enter pattern information
What Is a Song?
A song in the RT-323 basically is a playing sequence of patterns (backing of several measures
comprising the three tracks drum A, drum B, and bass). To create a song, you sequentially enter
information about pattern switching from the beginning. The maximum number of measures in a
song is 999.
A song contains not only pattern information. You can also enter the following information.

Hands-on Lessons
Hands-on Lessons
This information can also be altered during a song. This lets you for example transpose the bass
track pitch according to the chord progression, continuously alter the tempo, perform fade-out at
the end of a song, etc. There are no limits to your creative potential.
Press the [
5
] key.
● Transposing the bass track
During step input, you can not only select a pattern number but also add various other information
such as volume, tempo, bass transpose value, etc. Such pieces of information are called "events".

Setting value
• When pattern information is input, transpose
information with a zero value is also input.
• Event information including pattern information can
be entered not only at the start of a measure, but
anywhere within the measure (using sixteenth-note
steps). For details, see page 66.
Use the [VALUE] dial to change the transpose
value for the third measure.

The transpose value setting range is -12 - 0 - 12 (in semitone
steps). For measures 3 and 4, we want to transpose the
original E Major pattern to A Major. Therefore, the required
21
setting value is "5" (five semitones higher = perfect fourth
higher).
The transpose setting remains active until the point
where the next transpose value is entered (start of fifth
measure in this example).
Use the [ ]/[ ] keys to move to the start of the
fifth measure.

Lesson 3 Creating a Song [Real-time Input]
In the final lesson, we will use "real-time input", which is another method for creating a song. With
this method, you assign desired patterns to the pads and play them in real time by hitting the pads.
What you play is recorded by the RT-323.
Hitting a pad in this condition starts real-time input, and the
first pattern starts to play. To select the next pattern, hit the
desired pad. The pattern will switch at the next measure
boundary.
In song mode, select the song number (00 - 11) for
which you want to perform real-time input.

Normally, when you perform real-time input of a song, you
must first assign the patterns you wish to use to the pads. In
the default condition of the RT-323, various patterns are
already assigned to the pads for songs 00 - 11. In lesson 3,
we will use these preassigned patterns. (For information on
how to assign your own patterns, see page 56.)

Number of currently
selected pad bank
The collection of drum sounds assigned to pads 1 - 13 is called a "pad bank". One drum kit
comprises pad banks 1 - 3, allowing you to play up to 39 types of drum sounds. The number of
the currently selected pad bank is shown on the display.
The functions of the various parameters are as follows.
■ PITCH
• For drum kits: The pitch of the pad is shifted continuously up or down according to the
slider movement. The width of the pitch shift depends on the sound.
• For bass programs: The pitch of the pad is shifted up or down in 13 discrete steps. The
actual pitch depends on the pitch setting for pads 1 - 13.
■ VOLUME
The pad volume changes according to the slider movement.
■ PAN (Panning)
As the JAM slider is moved from up to down, the pan setting (left/right position) of the
sound is shifted from right to left.
■ SOUND CHANGE
According to the slider movement, the sound of the pad changes. The actual change
depends on the drum kit and bass program.

■ Bass track recording
In the factory default condition, a scale with semitone pitch steps such as C, C#, D, D#,...B,
C is assigned to the pads, except for pad 6. Hitting a pad produces the bass sound of the
assigned pitch, and recording is performed with the currently selected quantize setting.
Note that, unlike the drum track, the bass track also records the duration of the pad press.
For example, to record the following example, the pad to which A2 is assigned and the pad
to which E2 is assigned must be pressed for the duration of a quarter note each.
You cannot perform pattern input on a preset pattern.

• When you select a song for which "EMPTY" is shown (in the factory default condition
songs 12 - 99), the pattern-to-pad assignment of the most recent song is used
automatically.
The pattern information assigned to the pads is stored for each song individually.

When you hit a pad in this condition, the pattern assigned to the pad is played. This allows you
to play the backing for a song by switching patterns in real time. This is similar to groove play
mode, but you cannot play multiple patterns at the same time, and the pattern switching occurs
only at the measure (or beat) change.
