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,

303a and is not a cause for concern.

• 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

306b way, you can prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or other devices.

• 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.

352a

• This device may interfere with radio and television reception. Do not use this device in the

352b 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 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

355b temperature extremes. Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.

• 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.

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

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 on a paper.

552

• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents of data that was stored in another

MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer) once it has been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.

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.

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.

Main Features

Making Your Own Rhythm Pattern Arrangements with Style Play

With the DR-3, you can enjoy performing rhythm patterns made up of drum and bass sounds.

You can add fill-ins and switch patterns while you play, making it easy to develop choruses, bridges, and solos for your songs.

100 Different Preset Styles

The DR-3 comes with 100 different prepared Styles in a variety of genres, including Rock, Funk,

Hip Hop, Jazz, Latin, and more. You can also create up to 100 of your own original Styles.

TSC (Total Sound Control) Function

This includes two types of effects, “Sound Shape,” which adjusts the overall tone of the sound, and “Ambience,” which alters the overall acoustic characteristics.

This feature makes it easy to attain the sound you want, whether it be a harder sound for Rock, an acoustic sound for Jazz, or the sound you get when performing live on stage.

Sound Shape and Ambience each includes eight presets and eight memories you can use to store your own favorite settings.

Control the DR-3 with a Foot Switch

The DR-3 allows you to connect up to two (optional) foot switches. You can use your foot to control the DR-3 as you perform, making this perfect for jam sessions and live performances.

You can a variety of functions to the foot switches, including switching patterns and turning the

Variation function on and off.

Variation Function Lets You Enjoy a Wide Variety of Arrangements

The DR-3 includes a Variation function that lets you play different arrangements within songs, for example arrangements to build up the excitement, quieter ones for vocal solos, along with a wide variety of other arrangements.

Produce Rhythm Patterns Automatically in Auto Mode

In Auto mode, you can produce songs by having the rhythm patterns be changed automatically every eight or sixteen measures, allowing you to enjoy jam sessions once you start a song, without having to operate the DR-3.

High-Quality Instrument Sounds–Ghost Notes, Too

The DR-3 features special “soft shot,” “double shot,” and “buzz shot” sounds for use as snare ghost notes. Using these makes it possible to get even more realistic rhythm patterns.

Dynamics-Capable Pad Keys

The pad keys on the DR-3 are capable of producing dynamics. The volume changes in response to the force you use to play the pads.

This lets you alter the sound you play depending on how hard you hit the pads, such as for hard shots and soft shots on the snare.

6

Main Features

Setting the Tempo with Tap Tempo Function

You can set tempos just by tapping the button at the desired timing.

Key Shift Function

You can easily change the key in which you are playing.

You can also easily get flat-tuning of a guitar, or match the key used by a different instrument, such as a sax.

Convenient Song Composing and Performing Functions

While basically following procedures similar to those used in performing Styles, you can create songs intuitively with the panel pads.

After you create a song, you can add cymbal crashes, change bass phrases, and edit specific portions of songs.

Synchronize Performances with Digital Recorders and Sequencers

Using MIDI, you can synchronize performances with digital recorders (such as those in the BR

Series) and sequencers, or start and stop the DR-3 using a GT-6.

Equipped with Both Phono Jacks and Phone Jacks

In addition to 1/4” phone jacks, the DR-3 also features RCA phono jacks, which let you connect a variety of other devices, such as mixers, amps, and audio systems.

Quick Start

This Quick Start manual describes how to enjoy performing the rhythm used in the DR-3’s Styles .

Pre-programmed Styles are provided in Rock, Jazz, and a variety of other musical genres.

Once you select a Style in the desired genre, you can put together backing that matches your own performances by switching Patterns .

The Patterns prepared for each Style include not only an “intro” and

“ending,” but up to three types of “fill-ins” and “verses” (main rhythm patterns). You can perform the rhythm in a variety of ways.

Let’s Listen to the Demo

Styles and Patterns —

Song performances require rhythm patterns that vary a little for each section of the performance (intro, fill-ins, ending, and so on). The DR-3 features eight prepared rhythm patterns expressing these variations within the songs. Eight patterns are grouped together in what is called a “Style.” The DR-3 features 100 pre-programmed internal Styles (Preset Styles) to suit a variety of musical genres. You can also put together your own combinations of Patterns to create whole new Styles (User

Styles).

Chapter 1 Overview of the DR-3

The DR-3’s Performance Modes

The DR-3 features two performance modes, Style Play mode , in which the rhythm patterns are switched as you play, and Song mode , in which you create data by arranging the patterns beforehand, and then perform.

Furthermore, “Style Play mode” features a Manual mode, in which you switch the rhythm patterns yourself, and an Auto mode , where the rhythm patterns are switched automatically.

A Style contains a set of rhythm patterns that are needed for performance of a song.

In order to perform a song, you need to have different rhythm patterns set in different parts of the song. For example, a rhythm pattern may change like this: Intro/melody A/melody B/ chorus/ending. To express the variation in such a song, each Style includes eight prepared rhythm patterns.

The DR-3 includes 100 different Preset Styles (internal Styles) in rock, jazz, and various other genres, so you can play all the rhythm patterns for a single song by selecting the genre you want to play in and then switching the patterns.

A Song is created by arranging the sequence of rhythm patterns that make up the song.

You can also create a song by setting up a sequence of patterns from different Styles. What's more, you can prepare further song data after you have created a song by editing parts of a song, for example by changing bass phrases.

Switch between these three modes with the MODE button shown below.

Kits

The drum, percussion, and bass sounds used in performing patterns are referred to as “kits.”

The Styles have predetermined kits assigned to them, so you can change kits by changing Styles, and thus change the sounds played with the pads.

Variation

Variation is a function that alters performances, for example building up the performance or toning it down.

There are three kinds of variations, [PTN] (Pattern), [KIT], and [MUTE].

[PTN]

This alternates the Pattern.

[KIT]

This substitutes the kits, thereby changing the sound.

[MUTE]

This mutes a part of the drum set. This is used to tone down the performance and bring solos out to the forefront.

The three kinds of variations are switched on and off with the VARIATION [PTN], [KIT] and

[MUTE].

fig.01-vari

Pattern Kit Mute

TSC

“TSC,” short for “Total Sound Control,” is a function that lets you change the overall tone of the sound and acoustics.

TSC includes two kinds of effects, “SOUND SHAPE” and “AMBIENCE.”

“SOUND SHAPE” adjusts the overall tone of the sound with a three-band equalizer and threeband compressor that are used to boost or cut specific pitches (frequency bands).

“AMBIENCE” adjusts the breadth of the sound by altering the acoustic characteristics of the sound.

You can select the TSC settings that sound best with each Style, and you can switch [SOUND

SHAPE] and [AMBIENCE] on and off independently.

Chapter 4 Controlling the Styles with a Foot Switch

You can use a foot switch (such as the optional FS-5U) to start and

stop performances and switch verses (p. 44). This is convenient, as

it allows you to switch the Patterns with your foot.

You can connect up to two foot switches.

When using the special cable (PCS-31), the foot switch connected with the white-striped plug is used to start and stop performances, and the foot switch connected with the red-striped plug is used to switch verses (as set at the factory).

Starting and Stopping Performances

You can use a foot switch to start and stop the performance of

Styles and songs (p. 85).

1.

With the performance stopped, press the foot switch.

When [MANU] or [AUTO] is lit: performance of the Style begins from the intro.

When [SONG] is lit: performance of the song begins.

2.

Press the foot switch while the performance is in progress.

When [MANU] or [AUTO] is lit: the ending is played, and then the performance stops.

When [SONG] is lit: the song stops.

Switching Verses

You can press the foot switch during performance of the Style to have a fill-in inserted in the current verse and then switch to the next verse. For example, if you press the foot switch while Verse

A is playing, the DR-3 inserts a fill-in B and switches to Verse B.

1.

Press the foot switch while the performance is in progress.

A fill-in is inserted, and the DR-3 switches to the verse following the verse currently being played.

Pressing the foot switch while Verse A is playing switches the performance to Verse B, pressing the foot switch during Verse B switches the performance to Verse C, and pressing the foot switch during Verse C switches the performance to Verse A.

By continuing to press the foot switch, you can select subsequent verses according to the number of times you press the foot switch.

Pressing the switch while the performance is in progress switches the DR-3 to the next verse specified for the song.

For instructions on connecting the foot switch, refer to

Chapter 5 Changing the Overall Tone of the

Sound and Acoustics (TSC)

“TSC,” short for “Total Sound Control,” is a function that lets you change the overall tone of the sound and acoustics.

TSC includes two types of effect, “Sound Shape,” which changes the overall tone of the sound, and “Ambience,” which alters the acoustic characteristics of the overall sound.

“Sound Shape” and “Ambience” each feature eight preprogrammed groups of settings (Preset), but you can also add up to eight more of your own settings (User settings) to these.

fig.05-01p

With the Preset Styles, settings for the two types of TSC effects are predetermined for each

Style individually, allowing you to attain the acoustic effect most suitable for each Style.

Changing the Overall Tone of the Sound

Chapter 7 Creating Styles

Even though the DR-3 comes with a great variety of styles, representing many genres, you can also create your own original styles. Such original styles are called “User styles.”

User styles have a “U” at the beginning of the style number, for example “U001.” You can create and store up to 100 User styles in the DR-3.

Procedure for Creating

Styles

Here are the steps you need to take to create a new style: fig.07-01

<1> Select a Number for the Style

You Are Creating

<2> Make the Settings for the New Style

- Set the Tempo

- Set the Beat

- Set Up the Drum Kit

- Set VARIATION [MUTE]

- Make the TSC Settings

- Determine the Number of Measures for Each Pattern

(These settings can be changed after the patterns are recorded.)

<3> Record the Patterns

(Realtime Recording/Step Recording)

- Record the Drum Part

- Record the Bass Part

- Change Dynamics to the Sounds (Velocity Edit)

- Transpose the Bass Part

<4> Check the Created Style

- Edit the Settings

<Finish the Style>

- Name the Style

There are two ways to record the patterns in Step <3> .

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 step 3 on p. 65)

Step Recording

With this method, you “record” by specifying the timing (step), volume, etc., of each instrument sound, one at a time. 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 adlib style.

Convenient Functions for Creating Styles

You can speed up the process of creating a new style by first copying a Preset style, or the patterns in a Preset style to a User style, and then modifying that to create the new style.

Copying and Deleting Styles (p. 71)

Copying and Deleting Patterns (p. 72)

Creating Two-Measure Patterns from Four-Measure

Patterns

When you copy a four-measure pattern, and then, using

the procedure described in “Determining the Number of Measures for Each Pattern” (p. 64), set the number of

measures to “2,” it results in a pattern in which only the first two measures of the original pattern are played.

In this manner, you can use the setting described on p.

64 to create a pattern after copying a pattern that is

shorter than the one you start with.

Changing the Key of the Bass Part (Key Transpose)

After copying or recording a pattern, you can change the key of its bass part.

<3> Recording the Patterns

Using Realtime Recording

The following explains the Realtime Recording procedure, in which you record by pressing the pads in time with the tempo provided by the metronome.

* When you record to a pattern which has already been recorded, the sounds are layered without the previously recorded sounds being erased.

* You cannot record to the Preset Styles (P001–P100).

* The tempo, Sound Shape, and Ambience settings that are set at the time of recording are saved to the recorded pattern.

• Recording the Drum Part

* With the drum part, you cannot record multiple notes from the same pad number at the same step (timing).

Make sure you have pressed [MANU] to switch to Manual mode.

1.

Hold down [ ] and press any of the pattern pads to specify the pattern to be recorded.

The pattern pad flashes when pressed.

2.

Hold down STEP REC [ ] and press

Using Step Recording

What is Step Recording?

This is a recording method whereby measures are divided into units called “steps,” and the timing of each sound to be played is specified.

The step length is set in “Quantize.” For example, if the value in Quantize is set to the eighth note, then when the time signature (beat) is set to 4/4, eight notes can be input in one measure.

When you press the pads while recording drum parts, one step length of the sound assigned to that pad will be input.

Chapter 8 Creating and Performing Songs ([SONG])

With the DR-3, it’s easy and convenient to create

“songs” by arranging patterns in the sequence they are to be played.

This chapter explains how to create and perform such songs.

What is a Song?

A number of patterns arranged in the sequence in which they are played is called a “song.”

You can create and save up to 100 songs on the

DR-3.

You can record up to a maximum of 250 patterns in one song.

* The DR-3 contains no song data when shipped from the factory.

*

For more on performing songs, refer to “Performing

Songs” (p. 85).

Procedure for Creating Songs

Here are the steps you need to take to create a new song: fig.08-01

<1> Select a Number for the Song

You Are Creating

<2> Make the Settings for the New Song

- Set the Initial Tempo

- Make the TSC Settings

(These settings can be changed after the patterns are recorded.)

<3> Record the Song

- Place the Patterns

(Step Recording / Realtime Recording)

- Edit Notes to Drum Parts and Bass Parts in the Song

<4> Edit the Song

- Insert

- Delete

- Copy

- Change the Tempo Part Way Through a Song

<5> Check the Created Song

- Edit the Settings

<Finish the Song>

- Name the Song

There are two ways to record the patterns in Step

<3> .

Realtime Recording

Performances in Manual mode (p. 43) are

recorded as songs just as they are.

You can use Realtime Recording to record the drum part and bass part independently. After arranging the patterns to create a song, you can then add drum and bass sounds, and make other

changes to the song (p. 78).

Step Recording

This is a recording method whereby patterns are arranged in a sequence, one by one.

74

Convenient Functions for Creating Songs

Copying a song is useful and convenient whenever you want to take a previously created song, replace some of its patterns, change the tempo and other settings, and then store the result as a new song.

Copying and Deleting Songs (p. 84)

Using a Foot Switch to Specify

Switching of Song Patterns

By using a foot switch while playing back songs, you can set the DR-3 so that a single pattern plays back repeatedly until you press the foot switch, at which point the song advances to the next pattern.

Using these settings, you don’t have to determine how many times the patterns are to be played, but instead you can record each pattern just one time each in the sequence they are to be played, then use the foot switch to switch the patterns during playback.

When using a foot switch to switch song patterns, set the [EDIT] <SONG>

“LoopType” to “BLOCK.” For more details,

refer to “Setting a Specified Segment for

Playing Repeatedly” (p. 87).

Switching Patterns With a

Foot Switch

Normally, when a song is played, the patterns in the song switch in the same sequence as they are recorded in the song. However, you can set the

DR-3 so that a single pattern plays back repeatedly until you press the foot switch, at which point the song advances to the next pattern with “Loop Type” set to “BLOCK” (Block Loop).

When recording a song, you can record each pattern just once in the desired sequence, without having to determine the number of repeats for any pattern. You can then control how many times any one pattern is to be repeated by pressing the foot switch during playback.

You can press the foot switch during performances with “Loop Type” set to “AB” to repeat the performance of the segment specified with the following “LoopStart” and “LoopEnd” parameters (Loop Play). Press the foot switch once again to exit Loop Play and resume playing the rest of the performance.

If you want to switch patterns with a foot switch, first assign the “VERSE,LOOP” function to the foot switch. For more detailed information, refer

to “Assigning Functions to the Foot Switch” (p.

49).

You can also execute this same function by pressing [ENTER] instead of the foot switch.

Chapter 11 Connecting and Using External MIDI Devices

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 Connector

The DR-3 is equipped with a MIDI IN connector.

fig.10-01

MIDI IN

Connector

* For more details concerning the way MIDI has been

implemented on this unit, please refer to “MIDI

Implementation” (p. 117).

* Some MIDI messages cannot be received while editing is in progress.

Starting/Stopping and

Synchronizing Performances on the DR-3 from an External MIDI

Device

You can synchronize the DR-3’s performances with digital recorders, MIDI sequencers, rhythm machines, and other such devices.

Master and Slave

When synchronizing two or more devices, one is made the “master” device and all others “slaves.” fig.10-02

MIDI IN

Receives data from an external MIDI device.

Connect to the MIDI OUT connector on the external MIDI device.

With the DR-3, you can use MIDI data to do the following.

• Use an external MIDI device to play the DR-3

• Starting/stopping and synchronizing performances on the DR-3 from a digital recorder or MIDI sequencer

• Using the DR-3 to record performances played by external MIDI devices

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.

MIDI OUT MIDI IN

Master Slave (DR-3)

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).

93

Chapter 11 Connecting and Using External MIDI Devices

Data Synchronized with the DR-3

The following MIDI messages are handled during synchronization with the DR-3.

• Start

• Timing Clock

• Continue

• Song Select

• Stop

• Song Position Pointer

* For more information on the MIDI messages handled by the devices you are connecting, refer to the owner’s manual for each device.

* When synchronizing a drum machine connected to the

DR-3, you should set things up so that sounds are not played by the DR-3’s internal sound generator in response to Note messages received from the connected drum machine. Either prevent Note messages from being transmitted by the connected device, or set the DR-3 so it doesn’t receive Note messages. For more on the DR-3’s

MIDI channel settings, refer to the following.

Setting the MIDI Channels

To enable proper reception of performance data, the MIDI channels for the transmitting and receiving devices must be matched.

You can assign the drum part and bass part to different MIDI channels.

5.

Press [EXIT] a number of times until you exit Edit mode.

* When the DR-3 is functioning as a slave device, the tempo cannot be controlled from the DR-3.

MIDI Channels

In order to exchange performance data between an external MIDI device and the DR-3, the MIDI channel settings must be the same for both devices. Performance data can be exchanged successfully only when the MIDI channels match.

For more on the DR-3’s MIDI channel settings,

refer to “Setting the MIDI Channels” (p. 94).
