IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2–4, please read and
observe the following:
Power Supply:
Use of Batteries
301
• Do not use this unit on the same power circuit
with any device that will generate line noise
(such as an electric motor or variable lighting
system).
302
• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat
after long hours of consecutive use. This is
normal, and is not a cause for concern.
303a
• The use of an AC adaptor is recommended as
the unit’s power consumption is relatively
high. Should you prefer to use batteries,
please use the alkaline type.
304a
• When installing or replacing batteries, always
turn off the power on this unit and disconnect
any other devices you may have connected.
This way, you can prevent malfunction and/
or damage to speakers or other devices.
306b
• Batteries are supplied with the unit. The life
of these batteries may be limited, however,
since their primary purpose was to enable
testing.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices,
turn off the power to all units. This will help
prevent malfunctions and/or damage to
speakers or other devices.
Placement
351
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or
other equipment containing large power
transformers) may induce hum. To alleviate
the problem, change the orientation of this
unit; or move it farther away from the source
of interference.
352
• This device may interfere with radio and
television reception. Do not use this device in
the vicinity of such receivers.
354a
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight,
place it near devices that radiate heat, leave it
inside an enclosed vehicle, or otherwise
subject it to temperature extremes. Excessive
heat can deform or discolor the unit.
355
• To avoid possible breakdown, do not use the
unit in a wet area, such as an area exposed to
rain or other moisture.
Maintenance
401a
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a
soft, dry cloth or one that has been slightly
dampened with water. To remove stubborn
dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a mild,
non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure
to wipe the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry
cloth.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or
solvents of any kind, to avoid the possibility
of discoloration and/or deformation.
10
IMPORTANT NOTES
Repairs and Data
Additional Precautions
452
551
• Please be aware that all data contained in the
unit’s memory may be lost when the unit is
sent for repairs. Important data should
always be backed up in another MIDI device
(e.g., a sequencer), or written down on paper
(when possible). During repairs, due care is
taken to avoid the loss of data. However, in
certain cases (such as when circuitry related
to memory itself is out of order), we regret
that it may not be possible to restore the data,
and Roland assumes no liability concerning
such loss of data.
• Please be aware that the contents of memory
can be irretrievably lost as a result of a
malfunction, or the improper operation of the
unit. To protect yourself against the risk of
loosing important data, we recommend that
you periodically save a backup copy of
important data you have stored in the unit’s
memory in another MIDI device (e.g., a
sequencer).
552
Memory Backup
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore
the contents of data that was stored in the
unit’s memory once it has been lost. Roland
Corporation assumes no liability concerning
such loss of data.
501b
553
• This unit contains a battery which powers the
unit’s memory circuits while the main power
is off. When this battery becomes weak, the
message shown below will appear in the
display. Once you see this message, have the
battery replaced with a fresh one as soon as
possible to avoid the loss of all data in
memory. To have the battery replaced,
consult with your retailer, the nearest Roland
Service Center, or an authorized Roland
distributor, as listed on the “Information”
page.
“BAK BATTERY LOW”
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using
the unit’s buttons, sliders, or other controls;
and when using its jacks and connectors.
Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
554
• Never strike or apply strong pressure to the
display.
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables,
grasp the connector itself—never pull on the
cable. This way you will avoid causing shorts,
or damage to the cable’s internal elements.
558a
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to
keep the unit’s volume at reasonable levels.
You may prefer to use headphones, so you do
not need to be concerned about those around
you (especially when it is late at night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package
it in the box (including padding) that it came
in, if possible. Otherwise, you will need to use
equivalent packaging materials.

Chapter 1 Before Composing Rhythm Patterns and Songs
This section provides a summary description of the DR-670.
How the Work Progresses
The process of creating one song’s worth of rhythm patterns can be divided broadly into two
steps: creating the patterns, then composing the song.

Composing the Rhythm Patterns
Compose (record) the performance patterns that constitute the sections or parts of the song.
You can create up to 200 of your own User Patterns.
There two different recording methods are shown below.
Realtime Recording
With this method, the key pads are played in time with a metronome count, with the pattern
being recorded just as it is performed. Even if there is a little unevenness in the timing used
in tapping the key pads, the Quantize function allows you to record with the timing
corrected. (Refer to “Set the Quantization” p. 55)
Step Recording
With this recording method, the timing for playing instrument sounds (steps), volume levels,
and other aspects of the pattern are specified one by one. This allows patterns to be recorded
accurately, even those that are hard to record using Realtime Recording.
You can also record patterns using both Realtime and Step Recording.
After recording the basic pattern using Step Recording, finish creating the Pattern by using
Realtime Recording to add sounds in a freer ad-lib style.
38
Chapter 1 Before Composing Rhythm Patterns and Songs
Compose (record) the song by stringing together a sequence of performances using your
User Patterns and the 200 Preset Patterns. There are two methods used for recording songs as
well.
Realtime Recording
Here, the song is recorded just by selecting and playing patterns. This allows quick and easy
recording of songs.
Step Recording
With this method, the individual patterns to be played and the points where they are played
in the sequence (the parts) are specified one by one. This allows accurate recording of songs,
even those that are difficult to record using Realtime Recording and those involving complex
combinations of patterns.

(Numbers 65–128), whose settings you can change.
● You can modify the sound (change the volume, pitch, and other settings) of instruments
assigned to the User Drum Kits, thus enabling you to handle such sounds as new
instruments distinct from the internal instruments.
● On the DR-670 you can use only one drum kit when creating any one pattern. You cannot
use multiple drum kits simultaneously to make one pattern.
● The number of the drum kit used when creating a pattern is stored within the pattern.
As a result, during playback of patterns, a switch is made to the relevant drum kit whenever
you switch patterns.

About Polyphony
The DR-670 features 20-voice polyphony; that is, a maximum of twenty sounds (voices)
can be played simultaneously. However, some instruments use two voices each time
they sound, so when playing such instruments, the actual number of simultaneous
notes may be less than twenty.
To find the number of voices used by each instrument, refer to the “Instrument/Bass
Tone List” (p. 99).

Setting a negative value (-) shifts the pitch
down; setting a positive value (+) shifts the
pitch up.
One fret is equivalent to a half-step change
in pitch; any value from -5 to +16 can be set.
To play the pitches of the fifth string of
a five-string bass (low B), set Fret Shift
to -5. You can then use Key Pads E, 13–

Chapter 9 Connecting and Using External MIDI Devices (MIDI Mode)
What is MIDI?
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a
universal standard that allows for the exchange
of performance data and other information
among electronic musical instruments and
computers. Once MIDI cables are used to
connect together devices equipped with MIDI
connectors, each device can send data to, or
receive data from any of the others.
MIDI Connectors
The DR-670 is equipped with a MIDI IN
connector and MIDI OUT connector.
fig.09-01
MIDI OUT
Connector
MIDI IN
Connector
MIDI Implementation Chart
In order to exchange MIDI data, the data
transmitted by the MIDI devices must be
common to both. The owner’s manuals for a
MIDI device always includes a MIDI
Implementation Chart, which allows you to
quickly check the compatibility of that
device with other devices. By comparing
the MIDI Implementation Charts of each
device you are using, you can confirm
which kinds of data can be exchanged.
* A separate publication titled “MIDI
Implementation” is also available. It
provides complete details concerning the
way MIDI has been implemented on this
unit. If you should require this publication
(such as when you intend to carry out bytelevel programming), please contact the
nearest Roland Service Center or
authorized Roland distributor.
MIDI IN
Receives data from an external MIDI device.
Connect to the MIDI OUT connector on the
external MIDI device.
MIDI OUT
Transmits the DR-670’s data. Connect to the
MIDI IN connector on the external MIDI device.
* Do not connect the MIDI IN connector directly
to the own MIDI OUT connector.
* When making a looped connection with other
MIDI devices, do not set the connected devices to
THRU (SOFT THRU). Otherwise, malfunction
could result.
Chapter 9

Chapter 9 Connecting and Using External MIDI Devices (MIDI Mode)
About MIDI Mode
With the DR-670, you can use MIDI data to do
the following.
● Synchronize performances with a digital
recorder or MIDI sequencer
● Use an external MIDI device to play the DR670, and use the DR-670 to play an external
MIDI device
● Transmit data from the DR-670 to an
external MIDI device and return the
transmitted data to the DR-670
In MIDI mode, you can make the necessary
parameter settings for handling MIDI data.
You can also transmit data in MIDI mode.
◆ To switch to MIDI mode, hold down
[SHIFT] while the performance is stopped
and press Key Pad 14 (MIDI).
Synchronizing Performances
with a Digital Recorder or
MIDI Sequencer (Sync Mode)
You can synchronize the DR-670’s performances

Slave (DR-670)
When the master device is started or stopped, a
MIDI message for that operation is transmitted.
The slave or slaves then start or stop in
accordance with the transmitted MIDI message.
Furthermore, timing clock data corresponding to
the tempo is transmitted by the master device.
Slave devices synchronize their performances to
this timing clock.
Other data transmitted from the master device
to slave devices includes song numbers (Song
Select) and the position of song performances
(Song Position Pointer).
Chapter 9 Connecting and Using External MIDI Devices (MIDI Mode)

AUTO:
Master and slave are switched
automatically.
While the DR-670 normally functions as the
master, when the performance is stopped
and a Start message is input from an
external MIDI device, the DR-670
automatically switches to slave.
INT:
The DR-670 functions as the master.
Operating the DR-670 starts and stops
performances, and performances play at the
tempo set in the DR-670.
MIDI:
The DR-670 functions as a slave device.
The DR-670 starts and stops according to the
messages input from an external MIDI
device, and performances are synchronized
to the timing clock transmitted by the

Troubleshooting
If you find the DR-670 is not operating correctly, check the items listed below.
If the DR-670 still does not work properly after you check these points, consult your local Roland
Service or your dealer.
No Sound
❏ Is the volume turned down (p. 18)?
❏ Is the output part set to “DRUM” or “BASS”
(p. 76)?
❏ Is the instrument’s level set to “0” (p. 80)?
❏ Have you selected a pattern or song
containing no performance data?
Sounds Drop Out
❏ Are you playing too many sounds
simultaneously?
The DR-670 has a maximum polyphony of
20 sounds (voices). Some instruments use
two voices each time they are played, so
using such instruments results in reducing
polyphony to fewer than 20 voices.
With some kinds of patterns, you can reduce
the number of voices that sound
simultaneously by setting the Assign Type
to MONO. This would be effective, for
example, in a pattern where a lengthy
cymbal sound is triggered on every beat.
❏ Could there be a mistake in the Assign Type
settings (p. 82)?
Can’t Play Rolls/Flams
❏ Could there be a mistake in the Flam
Interval or Flam Ratio settings (p. 78)?
❏ Are you trying to play a roll or flam with a
bass part?
Performance Does Not Start
When [START] Is Pressed
❏ Is “MIDI” selected in Sync mode (p. 87)?
❏ Have you selected a pattern or song
containing no performance data?
94
REC Indicator Does Not Flash
When [REC] Is Pressed
Recording Does Not Start When
[REC] Is Held Down and [START]

❏ Have you selected a Preset pattern?
❏ Have you selected except Song Edit mode

No Metronome Sound
❏ Is the metronome level (Click Level) set to
“0” (p. 78)?
Cannot Change the Drum Kit
