IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 3–4, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply: Use of Batteries
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical
outlet.
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.
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.
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such
receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications
devices, such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of
this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience
such problems, you should relocate such wireless devices
so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch
them off.
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.
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water
droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage
or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in
this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation
has completely evaporated.
360
• Depending on the material and temperature of the surface
on which you place the unit, its rubber feet may discolor or
mar the surface.
You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the rubber feet
to prevent this from happening. If you do so, please make
sure that the unit will not slip or move accidentally.
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.
Repairs and Data
452
• 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 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.
Additional Precautions
551
• 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 written down on paper.
552
• 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.

IMPORTANT NOTES
553
985
• 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.
• The explanations in this manual include illustrations that
depict what should typically be shown by the display.
Note, however, that your unit may incorporate a newer,
enhanced version of the system (e.g., includes newer
sounds), so what you actually see in the display may not
always match what appears in the manual.
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.
562
• 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.
927
• Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you
may experience a discomforting sensation, or perceive that
the surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch this
device, microphones connected to it, or the metal portions
of other objects, such as guitars. This is due to an infinitesimal electrical charge, which is absolutely harmless.
However, if you are concerned about this, connect the
ground terminal (see figure) with an external ground.
When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may occur,
depending on the particulars of your installation. If you are
unsure of the connection method, contact the nearest
Roland Service Center, or an authorized Roland
distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be
dangerous in the event of lightning)
Battery handling
• Incorrect handling of batteries, rechargeable batteries, or a
battery charger can cause leakage, overheating, fire, or
explosion. Before use, you must read and strictly observe
all of the precautions that accompany the batteries,
rechargeable batteries, or battery charger.
• When using rechargeable batteries and a charger, use
only the combination of rechargeable batteries and
charger specified by the battery manufacturer.

List of effects
■ Power Cmp1
This controls a COSM effect that simulates a vacuum tube amp, and a compressor. It boosts thin sounds that
are lacking in low range, giving them greater weight and power.
■ Power Cmp2
This controls a COSM effect that simulates a vacuum tube amp, and a compressor. It boosts the mid-range,
creating a fat-sounding vocal.
■ Power Cmp3
This controls a COSM effect that simulates a vacuum tube amp, and a compressor. It boosts the high range.
This is ideal for delicate acoustic guitar sounds.
This is also a way to obtain greater clarity for sounds that tend to be buried by other loud sounds around
them.
Parameter

Range
Explanation
-90.0– -40 dB
Cuts the noise that occurs at low volumes in the background of the
voice.
With higher values for this setting, louder noises will be cut.
* If you apply this too strongly, the beginning (attack) and end (decay) of the
voice may be cut off unnaturally, or the voice may be less intelligible.

Raising this setting will boost the high-frequency range.
TUBE
0–100
This is a COSM effect that simulates a vacuum tube amp.
It produces the natural-sounding distortion typical of a vacuum tube.
Raising this setting will increase the distortion.
* Since this models the subtle characteristics of a vacuum tube amp, it may
be difficult to notice the result in some cases.
COMP
0–100
Lowers the threshold of the compressor (i.e., the volume level at which
the compressor begins to operate), and simultaneously raises the volume.
The result is to even out the volume levels of the loud and soft sounds,
raising the overall loudness. Raising this setting will increase the level.
Unlike simply raising the volume, this produces a thicker and heavier
sound.
The compressor threshold is common to channels 1 and 2. This means
that you can use COMP either in stereo for channels 1 and 2, or for just
one or the other channel.
* You should be careful not to over-apply effects. Doing so may increase noise, or cause the sound to be muffled when loud
sounds are excessively suppressed.

The higher the value, the brighter the sound.
■ Narration
This effect controls a de-esser and enhancer to give the voice greater clarity and intelligibility.
It will minimize the sibilants (*1) that are heard when vocalizing into a mic, making the voice more listenable.
When editing video, it’s convenient to use this while recording a voice-over, narration, or reading.

Adjusting the output signal appropriately for your
environment (Room Acoustic Control)
“Room acoustics” refers to the overall acoustical characteristics of the environment in which you’re
reproducing sound, including the response of the speakers you’re using.
The M-10DX provides a “Room Acoustic Auto Control” function, which automatically compensates for the
acoustics of a room. At the touch of a single button, this function performs the following operations:
(1) Outputs a test signal from the M-10DX, and plays this signal through the connected monitors.
(2) Detects the sound played by the monitors with the Room Acoustic Sensor, and analyzes its
frequency response.
(3) Based on the results of the analysis, automatically adjusts the response of the output signal.
The results of this automatic adjustment can be further edited manually if you wish.
Depending on the environment in which you are located, the automatic adjustment may not be enough to
provide the optimal response. In this case, you can perform manual adjustments in conjunction with the
automatic adjustment.
You can use a mic connected to channel 1 as the room acoustics sensor.
➝ “Selecting the Room Acoustic Sensor (RAC Source)” (p. 38)
You can specify the upper and lower limits of the frequencies that will be automatically adjusted.
➝ “Specifying the frequency range analyzed by Room Acoustic Auto Control (RAC Freq >= / RAC Freq <=)” (p. 38)
Automatic adjustment (Room Acoustic Auto Control)
In order to obtain the best possible results from this function, please observe the following points.
fig.RAC_Caution-e
• Place your equipment so that the room acoustic
sensor or mic (if the RAC Source (p. 38) is set to
CH1) is at the listening point.
• Place your equipment so that the left and right
monitors (speakers) are the same distance to the
sensor/mic.
Same
distance
• To the extent possible, place the sensor/mic at
the height of your ears at the listening point.
• Do not place obstructions near the sensor/mic.
• While the adjustments are being performed, do
not place the M-10DX or mic on an object that
could resonate easily (such as a hollow box or
stand).
* Such an object could resonate with the test signal, causing slight vibrations that might interfere with accurate
measurement.
With monitors (speakers) that have a low output level, the test signal may not be detected, and the analysis
may fail to start. In this case we recommend that you perform the analysis manually (p. 33).

Adjust the volume as you would for normal playback when listening to the music.
If the speaker volume is too high the test signal will be produced at a loud volume, and if the volume is too
low the sensor will be unable to detect the test signal. Either situation will prevent the automatic adjustment
from occurring correctly.

Creating a well-balanced sound (Finalize)
After you’ve mixed the sounds from each channel, you can create a well-balanced sound by making the
overall volume and loudness more consistent.
This process is called “finalizing,” and is done using a multi-band compressor and an enhancer.
The M-10DX provides six types of Finalize effects.

Parameter
CROSS
Range
10.0–14k (Hz)
COMPRESS
0–100
CLARITY
0–100
Explanation
Specifies the frequency at which the low and high ranges will be divided.
Lowers the threshold of the multi-band compressor (the volume at which
the compressor begins to apply), and simultaneously raises the volume.
The result is that the level differences between high volume and low
volume will be smoothed out, making the overall volume more consistent and raising the overall loudness. Increasing this value will intensify the result. Unlike simply raising the volume, this produces a thicker
and denser sound.
Controls the enhancer to specify the degree to which the sound is clarified. Higher settings will produce a stronger effect.
* If you excessively apply this to a sound that is already clear, it will make
the sound unpleasant or distorted.
■ FAT Comp
This effect produces a thick, robust sound.
Parameter
Range
L COMPRESS

Explanation
Lowers the low-frequency threshold for the multi-band compressor,
and simultaneously increases the volume. This will thicken the sound
of the low-frequency range. Increasing this value will set this to a higher level. Unlike simply raising the volume, this produces a thicker and
denser low-frequency range.
Lowers the high-frequency threshold for the multi-band compressor,
and simultaneously increases the volume. This will thicken the sound
of the high-frequency range. Increasing this value will set this to a higher level. Unlike simply raising the volume, this produces a thicker and

Troubleshooting
If you experience problems, read this chapter first/ It contains tips for solving most problems.
Power does not turn on (when using the AC adaptor)
❏ Is the AC adaptor connected correctly?
Check the connections, and make sure that the AC adaptor plug is inserted firmly into the DC IN jack.
Power does not turn on (when using batteries)
❏ Are the batteries installed correctly?
Make sure that the batteries are installed correctly. Check that they are oriented correctly, and that they have
not popped up out of their place.
❏ Could the batteries be exhausted?
Install fresh batteries.
If the battery indication in the level meter screen shows
as soon as possible.
(little capacity remaining), replace the batteries
❏ Is the AC adaptor connected to the DC IN jack?
If the AC adaptor’s plug is connected to the DC IN jack, the M-10DX cannot operate on batteries even if
batteries are installed. Unplug the AC adaptor if you want use batteries.
Sound is crackly or distorted
❏ Could the input volume be too high?
The sound may be crackly or distorted if the input volume (level) is too high. If you’re inputting audio from
an input jack, adjust the M-10DX’s input volume (level).
➝ “Basic use” (p. 17)
❏ Are you mixing multiple channels?
Even if the input volume (level) of a single channel is appropriate, the sound may be louder when you mix
several channels, possibly causing crackling or distortion. Please re-adjust the input level of each channel.
❏ Are the equalizer levels appropriate?
If you turn an EQ knob (HI/MID/LO) too far toward the right, the sound may be crackly or distorted. Use the
EQ knobs (HI/MID/LO) of each channel to re-adjust the equalizer levels.
❏ Are the insert effect, finalize, room acoustic control, and FX
settings appropriate?
Depending on the settings of each effect, the level may increase, causing the sound to be crackly or distorted.
Check these settings and re-adjust them if necessary.
40
Troubleshooting
Noise can be heard
❏ Could you have raised the level of unused channels?
For the channels you‘re not using, minimize the input level by turning the SENS knob or the channel LEVEL
knob all the way to the left.
❏ Could numerous audio devices be connected?
Noise may occur if a large number of audio devices are connected. Don’t connect audio devices that you're
not using.
Loud noises such as “howls,” “whines,” or “buzzes” occur
❏ Is a mic connected?
Depending on the position of the mic and speakers, acoustic feedback (a whine or howl) may occur. In this
case, take the following steps.
1. Change the direction of the mic
2. Move the mic away from the speakers
3. Lower the volume
❏ Is an audio device connected to the M-10DX?
If the input and output of the audio device are both connected to the M-10DX, the signal may be creating a
feedback loop. Please check the connections.
A low-volume buzz or hum is heard
❏ Is other equipment connected?
This noise is called “hum.” The M-10DX and the connected equipment may pick up electromagnetic
interference and emit this noise as a result. This noise can be caused by the power supply frequency (50/60
Hz) or by high-output motors. Try moving your equipment away from the device that contains a motor, or
connecting the M-10DX to a different AC outlet. You can also try connecting your equipment to a different
input jack on the M-10DX.
Insert effect is not applied
❏ Could the insert effect setting for channels 1 and 2 be turned off?
Even if the [INSERTION FX] button is on (lit), the insert effect will not be applied unless the channel 1 and 2
“IFX” setting (p. 23) is on.
FX (echo/reverb) is not applied
❏ Could the send level be too low?
The effect may not be applied if the send level is too low. Turn the AUX/FX button (lit), and then turn the
PAN/BAL knob toward the right to gradually increase the level.
41
Troubleshooting
Volume of a device connected to the LINE IN jacks is too low
❏ Could you be using a connection cable that contains a resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not contain a resistor.
Can’t hear the sound from a mic connected to a MIC connector (1–2)
❏ Could you have connected a condenser mic that requires
phantom power?
If you’re connecting a condenser mic that requires phantom power, turn the [PHANTOM] switch on.
An input sound is heard only from the left or right
❏ Could the PAN knob or BAL knob be set all the way to the left or right?
Set the PAN knob or BAL knob to the center position.
