impregnated with a mild, non-abrasive
detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe the unit
thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
Placement
• 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.
• This device may interfere with radio and
television reception. Do not use this device in the
vicinity of such receivers.
• 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

third party in part or in whole without the
permission of the copyright owner is forbidden
by law.
• This product can be used to record or duplicate
audio or visual material without being limited by
certain technological copy-protection measures.
This is due to the fact that this product is
intended to be used for the purpose of
producing original music or video material, and is
therefore designed so that material that does not
infringe copyrights belonging to others (for
example, your own original works) can be
recorded or duplicated freely.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Additional Precautions
• 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.
• 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.
• 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).
• 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.
• 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.

Turn ON.
The Phantom power indicator on the front panel will light.
Guitar/mic input volume
Use this to adjust the input level. If the input/output level indicator is lit red, use this volume control
to lower the input level. To obtain the best-quality recording, use this knob to adjust the level so it
is as high as you can get it without causing the indicator to light.
* Howling could be produced depending on the location of microphones relative to speakers. This
can be remedied by:
1. Changing the orientation of the microphone(s).
2. Relocating microphone(s) at a greater distance from speakers.
3. Lowering volume levels.
Types of microphone
Most microphones are either dynamic microphones or condenser microphones; either type
of microphone can be connected to the UA-4FX. The UA-4FX also supports “plug-in powered
microphones,” which are small monaural condenser microphones designed for connection
to the microphone input of a computer.
Only a monaural microphone that supports plug-in power may be connected to the Mic
input jack (plug-in powered mic). Connecting any other type of microphone or a
conventional stereo mini-type plug to this jack may damage the circuitry.

Applying Effects
The UA-4FX’s advanced effects provide an easy way to change the character of the sound, and are
a great convenience for audio editing. Four types of digital effect are provided, and these can be
applied while you play back sound or record from a microphone or guitar. You can use the four
knobs to easily adjust the character of the effect that is applied to the microphone, guitar, or the
sound from the line inputs or digital input.
Before you continue, make connections and basic settings as described in “Basic Connections and
Settings” (p. 31).

fig.fx-master2.e
Effect
Explanation
Removing noise
(NOISE SUP)
This removes low-level sounds or noise that remain in the background during periods of silence, and removes the noise from an analog source. This will
make the sound clearer.
* If this effect is applied to an input signal whose volume is extremely low,
you may hear no sound at all.
Sharpening the sound
(ENHANCER)
This sharpens the sound, boosting the high-frequency range to improve the
clarity.
Boosting the low range
(MASTER-Lo)
This suppresses distortion to the low-frequency range (below 220 Hz), making the sound powerful and solid.
Boosting the high range
(MASTER-Hi)
This suppresses distortion to the high-frequency range (above 2 kHz), making the sound more powerful.
* If you increase an effect (turn the knob toward the right) excessively, the sound may distort. If
this occurs, you can try lowering the level of the input signal, the volume of the external audio
playback device, or the volume of your computer. Alternatively, you can turn the effect knob
toward the left to decrease the effect.

Explanation
CENTER CANCEL
When you input a stereo source such as a CD, this lets you eliminate sounds
that are located in the center of the stereo image, creating a karaoke version.
As you turn the effect knob from the OFF position toward the right (maximum), a greater portion of the center will be eliminated.
* Applying this to a monaural sound may result in your hearing no sound
at all.
* If the Playback button is on, this center cancel effect will not apply to the

Explanation
Modifies the pitch, giving the sound a completely different character.
As you turn the effect knob from OFF toward the maximum (far right), the pitch will
rise.
Distorts the sound to create guitar tones ranging from tasteful to extreme.
Turning the effect knob from OFF toward the center position will produce a mild overdriven sound. Turning the knob from the center toward the maximum (far right) will
produce more extreme distortion.
Adds depth and spaciousness to the sound, creating a rich sense of stereo.
Adds repeated delays to give the sound more depth, or produce an echo-like effect.
* If you increase an effect (turn the knob toward the right) excessively, the sound may distort. If
this occurs, you can try lowering the level of the input signal, the volume of the external audio
playback device, or the volume of your computer. Also try turning the effect knob toward the left
to reduce the depth of the effect.
* When you turn on a performance effect, a noise suppressor will be activated to reduce the noise
from your guitar or microphone. You can adjust the level of the noise suppressor by holding
down the Effect variation button and turning the AMP/DRIVE knob. Turning the knob toward the
left will lower the level.
