the nearest Roland / EDIROL Service Center,
or an authorized Roland / EDIROL
distributor, as listed on the "Information"
page.

006
• When using the unit with a rack or stand
recommended by Roland, the rack or stand
must be carefully placed so it is level and
sure to remain stable. If not using a rack or
stand, you still need to make sure that any
location you choose for placing the unit
provides a level surface that will properly
support the unit, and keep it from wobbling.
................................................................................................
007
• Make sure you always have the unit placed
so it is level and sure to remain stable. Never
place it on stands that could wobble, or on
inclined surfaces.
................................................................................................
008a
• The unit should be connected to a power
supply only of the type described in the
operating instructions, or as marked on the
unit.
................................................................................................

• This unit, either alone or in combination with
an amplifier and headphones or speakers,
may be capable of producing sound levels
that could cause permanent hearing loss. Do
not operate for a long period of time at a high
volume level, or at a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience any hearing loss or
ringing in the ears, you should immediately
stop using the unit, and consult an audiologist.
................................................................................................
101a
• The unit should be located so that its location
or position does not interfere with its proper
ventilation.
................................................................................................

• In households with small children, an adult
should provide supervision until the child is
capable of following all the rules essential for
the safe operation of the unit.

• Protect the unit from strong impact.
(Do not drop it!)
................................................................................................
015
• Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to
share an outlet with an unreasonable number
of other devices. Be especially careful when
using extension cords—the total power used
by all devices you have connected to the
extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the
power rating (watts/amperes) for the
extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the
insulation on the cord to heat up and
eventually melt through.
................................................................................................

• Before using the unit in a foreign country,
consult with your retailer, the nearest Roland
Service Center, or an authorized Roland
distributor, as listed on the "Information"
page.

may be of a level that could cause permanent
hearing loss. Damage to speakers or other
system components may result.

107b
• Never handle the power cord or its plugs
with wet hands when plugging into, or
unplugging from, an outlet or this unit.

plug from the outlet, and pull out all cords
from external devices.

lightning in your area, pull the plug on the
power cord out of the outlet.
................................................................................................
118
• Should you remove the optical connector
caps and screws, make sure to put them in a
safe place out of children's reach, so there is
no chance of them being swallowed accidentally.
................................................................................................
IMPORTANT NOTES
291b
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT
SAFELY” on pages 3 and 4, please read and observe the following:
■ Power Supply
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).
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.
■ Additional Precautions
553
• 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.
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.
557
• A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during normal operation.
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.
5
IMPORTANT NOTES
562
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using some other make of connection cable, please note the
following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use cables that incorporate resistors for connecting to this
unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound level to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.
■ Handling CD-ROMs
801
• Avoid touching or scratching the shiny underside (encoded surface) of the disc. Damaged or dirty CD-ROM
discs may not be read properly. Keep your discs clean using a commercially available CD cleaner.
■ Copyright
851
• Unauthorized recording, distribution, sale, lending, public performance, broadcasting, or the like, in whole or in
part, of a work (musical composition, video, broadcast, public performance, or the like) whose copyright is held
by a third party is prohibited by law.
852b
• When exchanging audio signals through a digital connection with an external instrument, this unit can perform
recording without being subjected to some of the restrictions of the Serial Copy Management System (SCMS).
This is because the unit is intended solely for musical production, and is designed not to be subject to restrictions
as long as it is used to record works (such as your own compositions) that do not infringe on the copyrights of
others. (SCMS is a feature that prohibits second-generation and later copying through a digital connection. It is
built into MD recorders and other consumer digital-audio equipment as a copyright-protection feature.)
853
• Do not use this unit for purposes that could infringe on a copyright held by a third party. Roland assumes no
responsibility whatsoever with regard to any infringements of third-party copyrights arising through your use
of this unit.

Main features
■ 8 IN/8 OUT audio input/output with up to 24-bit/96
kHz quality
The DA-2496 supports eight channels of audio input and output
simultaneously with astounding 24-bit/96 kHz quality, allowing pro-quality
digital recording and playback. Sampling rates from 22.05–96 kHz are
supported. MIDI input/output connectors and word clock input/output
connectors are also standard.
Up to four DA-2496 units can be used simultaneously, letting you expand
your system to 32 INs/32 OUTs. (Only on Windows Me/98.)
■ Internal digital mixer
The internal digital mixer can be controlled directly from the control panel of
your computer. You can mix eight channels of input with audio data from
your computer, and output the two-channel mix.
The Direct Monitor function lets you monitor in real time without passing the
data through your computer application.
■ MIDI interface functionality
The DA-2496 provides a set of MIDI IN/OUT connectors, allowing it to be
connected to MIDI devices for synchronization via MTC.
■ Included drivers
The included dedicated drivers for the DA-2496 support ASIO 2.0 for both
Windows and Macintosh versions. A WDM drive for Windows 2000 is also
included. You can enjoy enhanced performance with WDM-compatible
applications such as SONAR, and ASIO-compatible applications such as
Cubase and Logic. Of course, the DA-2496 can also be used with applications
that support MME (Windows) or Sound Manager (Mac OS).
In order to use the MIDI
functionality of the DA2496 on the Macintosh,
you must install Opcode
Corporation’s OMS 2.3.3.
Use the DA-PCI Driver
CD-ROM to install this.

88.2, and 96. Other sample
rate settings cannot be
used.
● Master Clock
Select the master clock.
• Int. Clock... The DA-PCI will be the word clock master. In this case,
set the DA-2496’s clock select switch to the INT (internal) position.
• Ext. Clock... The DA-PCI will synchronize to the DA-2496 (or to
another DA-PCI). In this case, set the DA-2496 (or the other DA-PCI)
to EXT (external).
34
If the master clock is set to
Ext. Clock, the sampling
frequency cannot be
changed from software.
DA-PCI Control Panel
● Int. Clock Sample Rate
Select the sampling frequency when the Master Clock is set to Int. Clock.
• Reset Rate When Idle... If this is checked, the sampling frequency
will return to the value specified by the control panel when the
device is released by the software.
● Ext. Clock Sample Rate
Select the sampling frequency when the Master Clock is set to Ext. Clock.
Only the sampling frequency selected here can be used by software.
● Multitrack Driver Device (Windows Me/98 only)
Specify how the MME device will be handled by software.
• Single and In-Sync... When a certain software program handles all
MME devices simultaneously, this ensures that each MME device is
synchronized.
• Independent... Use this setting when each MME device is used by
different software.
• Multiple Card Sync... When multiple DA-PCI units are used
simultaneously, this ensures that they will be synchronized.
● DMA Buffer Size
Specify the buffer size for MME (Windows), ASIO, and Sound Manager
(Macintosh). The buffer size is closely related to latency, and decreasing the
buffer size will also decrease the latency.
Depending on the
performance of your
computer, the digital data
may not be transferred
correctly if the buffer is too
small, causing noise. If this
occurs, increase the buffer
size.

Synchronization settings
DA-2496/DA-PCI synchronization
settings
In order to use the DA-2496/DA-PCI, you must set the word clock of each
unit to either internal (INT), or external (EXT). You will need to set the DA2496 and DA-PCI appropriately for your situation.
The word clock of the DA-2496 is selected using the clock select switch on its
front panel. The word clock of the DA-PCI is selected through the Master
Clock setting in the Hardware Settings section of the included Control Panel
software.
■ Using the DA-2496/DA-PCI as the master
Set both the DA-2496 and DA-PCI to Internal. In this case, even if a signal of
a sampling frequency differing from that of the master is received at the
digital input jack of the DA-2496, it will be converted into the sampling
frequency of the master, and sent to the computer.
If the settings are correct, the front panel LOCK indicator will light.
For details on the Control
Panel, refer to DA-PCI
Control Panel (p. 32).
If you are using the DA2496 with a sequencer, the
MIDI cables connected to
the DA-2496 must not be
disconnected while a song
is playing.

Synchronization settings for multiple DA-PCI units
Up to four DA-PCI units can be used simultaneously in one computer. Each
DA-PCI will be assigned a number from 1 through 4, following the order in
which the cards are detected. (Usually, such detection occurs in numerical
order, beginning with the lowest-numbered PCI slot.) Settings for each card
are made from the DA-PCI control panel. When using multiple DA-PCI units
simultaneously, all cards and PCI devices must be synchronized.
Simultaneous use of
multiple DA-PCI units is
not supported for
Windows 2000 and
Macintosh.
■ Synchronizing multiple DA-PCI units
In order to synchronize multiple DA-PCI units, the sampling frequency of all
DA-PCI and DA-2496 units must match, and they must be using the same
word clock. As shown below, there are two ways in which the word clock can
be shared.
