IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE
UNIT SAFELY” on page 2, please read and observe
the following:
Power Supply
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. (It is not necessary to turn off the power of
your computer.)
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.
558a
351
• 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).
• 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.
• 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.
Placement
352
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of
such receivers.
559a
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.
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.
4
564
• Before you open the included CD-ROM, you must
read the “license agreement." Opening the CD-ROM
will be taken to mean your acceptance of the license
agreement.
Handling CD-ROMs
801
• Avoid touching or scratching the shiny underside
(encoded surface) of the disc. Damaged or dirty CDROM discs may not be read properly. Keep your
discs clean using a commercially available CD
cleaner.

You must read this before you use digital recording
(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.)
On the UA-3
The UA-3 will function with partial SCMS support only for a digital input signal from
an external device. When data containing SCMS flags is input, for example from a MD
that was digitally copied from a commercial music CD, the UA-3 will function as
follows.
If input from the UA-3’s digital input connector:
•The UA-3 cannot record this data to your computer
•The audio will be output from the analog outputs (line output jacks, headphone jack) and
digital output connector.
If input from the UA-3’s analog inputs (line input jacks):
•Recording can occur normally
Regardless of the presence or absence of the SCMS flag, data that is
received at the digital input connector of the UA-3 will be output directly
from the digital output connector
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.
This device does not support digital audio signals that are formatted for broadcast studio digital
audio devices.
The UA-3 operates according to SCMS only for digital input signals from an external
device. SCMS flags are not added to the digital audio signals that are output from
the UA-3.

Introduction
Check the contents of the package
The UA-3 includes the following items. When you open the package, first
make sure that all items are included. If any are missing, contact the dealer
where you purchased the UA-3.
UA-3
USB cable
Use this to connect the UA-3 to the USB connector of your computer. For
details on connections, refer to Connections and driver installation
(Windows p. 10, Macintosh p. 24).
AUDIO Capture CD-ROM
This contains software that you will need in order to use the UA-3.
* Be sure to read the Readme_E.txt file found in the AUDIO Capture CD-ROM. Any
updated information will be provided in the Readme_E.txt file.
Do not play back the CD-ROM on a conventional audio CD player.
Doing so will produce a high volume that may damage your ears or
speakers.
Getting Started
This is the document you are reading. Keep it at hand for reference when needed.
License agreement
This contract describes the terms under which Roland Corporation allows
you to use the software. You must read this before opening the CD-ROM
package.
Use only the included
USB cable.
Before opening the
included CD-ROM, you
must read the separate
license agreement.
Do not touch the silver
recording surface of the
disc, or scratch it.
Doing so may make it
impossible for data to
be read correctly. If the
disc becomes soiled,
use a commercially
available CD cleaner to
clean it.
You will need to provide these items yourself
External amp, speakers, headphones, and mic are not included
External amp, speakers, or headphones necessary for listening to the sound

Connections and driver installation (Windows)
* If you are a Macintosh user, refer to p. 24.
In order to use the UA-3, you must first install the USB Composite Device
driver, the USB Human Interface driver, and the USB Audio Device driver
consecutively. These drivers are included with Windows. If you are using
Windows 98, this driver is provided in the Microsoft Windows CD-ROM, so
you will need to have the Microsoft Windows CD-ROM ready. If you are
using Windows Me or 2000, the CD-ROM is not necessary.
What is a driver?
A driver is software that allows an application program running on your
computer to transfer data to and from the UA-3 when it is connected to your
computer via a USB cable. The driver passes data from the application to the
UA-3, and passes data from the UA-3 to the application.

Before installing the driver
The UA-3 cannot be used with Windows 95 or Windows NT.
If other Windows programs are running, exit all of them before you
continue.
If you will be simultaneously connecting multiple Roland USB devices
(for example; the UA-3 and other USB devices such as the UA-100G) to
your computer, disconnect the UA-100G or other devices from the USB
connector before installing the driver. If you install the driver when the
UA-100G or other devices are connected, installation may not occur
correctly.

Known issues: UA-3
• Some applications such as Cakewalk’s Metro Series and TC Work’s
Spark Series cannot record/playback at 48 kHz. Please use the UA-3
at 44.1 kHz.
• While the audio application is recording or playing, do not connect/
disconnect the USB cable, or move the Recording input select
switch.
Doing so may cause the application to freeze.
• You may hear sound hopping and/or noise when you record and
play back at the same time due to high load on the CPU. However,
the noise should not be in the recording itself. Such noise should
only be found in the playback signal.
• If you are going to use the Virtual Sound Canvas 3, you will need to
select [Performance] from the [Setting] menu, and set the
Expression Mode to Response Priority.
• The standard driver that comes with Mac OS is not ASIO compatible.
• When you start up your computer with the UA-3 connected, the

* The sampling rate of the UA-3’s digital output is 44.1kHz. Audio data of a sampling
rate other than 44.1kHz will be automatically converted within a computer to
44.1kHz, and will be output from the digital output connectors of the UA-3.
Depending on the
application that you are
using on a Windows
machine, when the digital
output of the UA-3 is
connected to a digital
device such as MD and
audio is playing, a certain
amount of time may be
required immediately after
playback ends for the
digital audio output to be
locked, so that there will
be no sound for one or two
second, or the tempo or
pitch may be wrong. If this
occurs, you can use the “DOut Smoother” software
included in the CD-ROM
to make the audio sound
smoothly. For details refer
to Basic operation of the
D-Out Smoother (p. 22).
If you change the position
of the Recording input
select switch, you should
turn down the volume of
any monitor speaker
system that is connected.

Troubleshooting
Digitally recorded sound is distorted, pitch changes or
contains noise
•
•
•
If you are using a long digital cable, noise may occur or the sound may be distorted
when it is connected. Use digital cables that are one meter (about a yard) or shorter.
Does the sampling frequency setting in the application match the sampling frequency of
the digital device connected to the digital input connector?
When using digital recording, it is not possible to record in monaural. Set your recording
software to the “stereo” setting.
Noise is present in the recorded sound
•
•
•
It has been found that noise tends to be introduced in sound recorded on the iMac series
models, which were released after the summer of 2000.
In the SimpleSound application that is included with MacOS, noise will be heard in the
sound if it is played back immediately after being digitally recorded. Save the sound
first, then try playing it back.
Update the USB Audio driver to 1.0.5f4.
If the USB Audio driver, which is provided with the Mac OS, is under 1.0.4, update it to 1.0.5f4.
You can download the driver from the URL below:
http://asu.info.apple.com/swupdates.nsf/artnum/n11703
Checking the USB audio driver’s version
1.
Connect the UA-3 to the computer.
2.
From the Apple menu, select [Apple System Profiler].
3.
Click the [Devices and Volumes] tab.
4.

■ A blank (silent) file is created when you record
• Try setting the bit rate to “16bit.”
If you are using Windows98 Second Edition, and your recording software is set to a bit rate of 8 bits, a
blank file may be created, so that you may not be able to record effectively. If this occurs, you will be able
to record correctly by setting the bit rate to “16 bit”.
• Data that contains the SCMS flag cannot be recorded digitally.
The UA-3 supports SCMS (p. 6), so that if SCMS-flagged data (such as data from an MD that was digitally
copied from a commercial music CD) is input to the digital connector, the UA-3 will not be able to record
this on the computer. (The sound will be output from the line output jacks and the headphone jack.)
41
Troubleshooting
Cannot record digitally
•
•
•
•
Is the Recording input select switch set to “DIGITAL”?
Is the application set to the same sampling frequency as that of the digital device
connected to the digital input connector?
Recording will no longer be possible if you switch the sampling frequency (for example,
between digital broadcast A mode and B mode) of a device while it remains connected to
the digital input connectors.
When switching the sampling frequency, you need to disconnect, then reconnect the digital cable.
It is not possible to record digital data of a format other than consumer digital audio
device format.
Cannot Record Music CD
•
The UA-3 cannot record music CDs in the computer’s CD-ROM drive with CoolEdit Pro LE
or other programs.
To record music CDs in the computer’s CD-ROM drive, you need to first select your computer’s sound
card as the audio device (Waveform Record) that is to be used for recording by CoolEdit Pro LE (or the
application you are using), then you can proceed with recording. When recording a music CD with a
sound card, uncheck “Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device” you checked in When using
your computer’s CD-ROM drive to play an audio CD, or when playing background music for games
with the UA-3 (p. 19).
The volume changed when you resumed from
Suspend or Hibernation status
•
When Windows 2000 resumes from Suspend or Hibernation, the output volume setting is
changed due to a problem of Windows.
Start up the Mixer application as described in Volume Control settings (p. 18), and adjust the USB
Audio (Speaker) slider.
Game background music does not sound
•
42
Does the game use an audio CD for background music?

Although Roland has tested numerous configurations, and has determined that on average, a computer system
similar to that described above will permit normal operation of the UA-3, Roland cannot guarantee that a given
computer can be used satisfactorily with the UA-3 based solely on the fact that it meets the above requirements.
This is because there are too many other variables that may influence the processing environment, including
differences in motherboard design and the particular combination of other devices involved.
