Main features of the SI-24
The SI-24 supports R-BUS. When R-BUS is used to connect the SI-24 to a computer
in which an RPC-1 is installed, you can transfer eight channels (IN/OUT) of digital
audio, and control applications via MIDI.
■ Dedicated channel editing functionality
The SI-24 provides twelve knobs and four buttons for editing the equalizer, send
level, and pan of each channel. This allows rapid and direct operation.
In order to use the SI-24 to
handle audio, or to transfer
audio to and from your
computer, you must connect it
to a computer in which an
R-BUS interface card (RPC-1)
is installed.
■ Moving faders
The SI-24 has thirteen moving faders (including the MASTER fader) for optimal
operability.
■ Joystick controller
A dedicated joystick is provided for surround control.
■ A full array of connectors
❍ The eight analog inputs support a wide range of input sensitivities, ranging from
line level (+4 dB) to mic level (-50 dB). The eight XLR connectors can provide
phantom power, allowing condenser mics that require external power to be
directly connected. A high impedance phone jack (GUITAR) is also provided for
directly connecting a guitar.
❍ Six phone jack analog outputs are provided. In addition to MASTER jacks
(stereo) and AUX1 jacks (stereo), the SI-24 provides RCA phono type AUX2 jacks
(stereo).
❍ Coaxial type digital I/O connectors (IN and OUT) are provided, allowing
consumer digital audio devices (such as electronic musical instruments, DAT
recorders, or the Roland VS series) to be digitally connected.
❍ All inputs and outputs support up to 24-bit/96 kHz sampling for high audio
quality.
❍ MIDI connectors (IN, OUT) are provided. When the SI-24 is connected to your
computer via R-BUS, the SI-24’s MIDI connectors can be used as a MIDI interface
for your computer (channel 2–16 only).
If “MIDI control” (p. 29) is turned on, you can control your computer or MIDI
devices via the MIDI connectors.

When the SI-24 is connected as shown in the above diagram to a device that passes the input sound through
to its output (a DAT recorder/the Roland VS series that is recording), the SI-24 and that device will form a
loop that can cause oscillation, producing an unexpectedly loud sound.
This type of connection can cause malfunction and damage to speakers and other equipment; take care to
avoid these conditions.
In addition to the above figure, take a moment now to check your connections for the following conditions.
• Could there be a looped connection between the analog and digital realms?
• Has any looped connection resulted from insertion of a mixer or other piece of equipment between the
devices?
15
Preparing to use the SI-24
• You cannot use the GUITAR jack and the INPUT 8 jack
(phone type/XLR type) simultaneously. If devices are
connected to both jacks, the GUITAR jack input will take
priority. If you want to use the input from the INPUT 8
jack (phone type/XLR type), do not connect anything to
the GUITAR jack.
• To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or
other devices, always turn down the volume, and turn off
the power on all devices before making any connections.
Preparing to use the SI-24
Turning the power on/off
■ Turning the power on
1. Use the rear panel POWER switch to turn on the power of the SI-24.
When the power is turned on, the power indicator will light.
2. Turn on the power of your audio system.
3. Raise the volume of your audio system to an appropriate level.
■ Turning the power off
1. Turn off the power of your audio system.
2. Use the rear panel POWER switch to turn off the power of the SI-24.
When the power is turned off, the power indicator will go out.
Using phantom power
Turn phantom power on if you connect a condenser mic that requires phantom
power. When phantom power is turned on, phantom power will be supplied to the
XLR type INPUT jacks.
• Always turn the phantom power off when connecting any device other than
condenser microphones that require phantom power. You risk causing damage if
you mistakenly supply phantom power to dynamic microphones, audio playback
devices, or other devices that don’t require such power. Be sure to check the
specifications of any microphone you intend to use by referring to the manual that
came with it. (This instrument’s phantom power: 15 V DC, 10 mA Max)
• The SI-24 is able to supply phantom power to condenser mics for which the 15V
current is no more than 10 mA. Also, if you are using phantom power with multiple
INPUT jacks, you must ensure that the total current does not exceed 80mA. We
cannot guarantee operation for condenser mics that require more electrical power
than this. In such cases, you will need to use a phantom power supply device.
• Phantom power is not supplied to the phone type INPUT jacks on the rear panel. If
you need phantom power, use the XLR type INPUT jacks on the top panel.
• To prevent hazard or damage, ensure hat only microphone cables and microphones
designed to IEC-268-15A are connected.
• Afin d'eviter tout resque ou dommage, ne brancher que des cables de microphone
et des microphones conformes a la norme IEC-268-15A.
1. Hold down [SHIFT], and press the [CH SELECT] button of the number
corresponding to the INPUT jack for which you want to switch phantom power on.
❍ Number of [CH SELECT] buttons (1-8) corresponds to same numbered input
jacks (XLR).
❍ While you hold down [SHIFT], the peak indicators and [CH SELECT] will
show the phantom power on/off status.
16
Indicator lit:
phantom power on
Indicator dark:

• Once the connections have
been completed (p. 14), turn
on power to your various
devices in the order specified.
By turning on devices in the
wrong order, you risk causing
malfunction and/or damage
to speakers and other devices.
• This unit is equipped with a
protection circuit. A brief
interval (a few seconds) after
power up is required before
the unit will operate normally.
Preparing to use the SI-24
Adjusting the input sensitivity
Use the INPUT sensitivity knobs to adjust the input sensitivity. You can adjust the
input sensitivity over a range from line level (+4 dB) to mic level (-50 dB).
■ When connecting a mic
Set the INPUT sensitivity knob to about the 3 o’clock position.
■ When connecting an electronic musical instrument (synthesizer)
Set the INPUT sensitivity knob to about the 9 o’clock position.
■ When connecting an electric guitar or electric bass
Use the GUITAR jack if you want to connect an electric guitar or electric bass directly
to the SI-24. The input sensitivity of the GUITAR jack is adjusted with the INPUT 8
sensitivity knob. In this case, set the INPUT 8 sensitivity knob to about the 9
o’clock position.
Q: The volume level of the
instrument connected to
INPUT jacks are too low.
A: Could you be using a
connection cable that
contains a resistor?
Use a connection cable
that does not contain a
resistor.

Preparing to use the SI-24
Using the digital input
The output of a digital audio device (e.g., electronic musical instrument, DAT
recorder, or the Roland VS series) connected to the SI-24 can be input to RPC-1 while
still in digital form.
If you want to use the DIGITAL IN input, use the following procedure to change the
settings.
The SI-24’s digital interface
complies with IEC60958
(consumer format). If you

How word clock is handled
on the SI-24
When [DIGITAL IN] is off
(dark), the SI-24 will
synchronize to the word clock
of the RPC-1. However, when
[DIGITAL IN] is on (lit), the
SI-24 will synchronize to the
word clock of the digital audio
device. In this case, the RPC-1
will also need to synchronize
to the word clock of the digital
audio device. In order for this
to happen, you must change
the settings of the RPC-1
(step 3).

Monitoring the SI-24’s inputs
The SI-24 does not provide mixing functionality. For this reason, if you want to use
the master output or headphones to monitor the sounds that are being sent to the
SI-24’s inputs, the sounds that are being input to the SI-24 must be sent back from the
computer to the SI-24. Broadly speaking, there are three ways to return the input
sounds from the computer.
Using the RPC-1’s internal mixer to return the input sound (p. 21)
This allows latency-free monitoring (i.e., monitoring with no delay). Also, you will
be able to monitor the input sound at any time, unless you change the settings.
If the computer is not
powered-on, you will not be
able to monitor the input
sound.
Using the RPC-1’s direct monitoring function to return the input sound (p. 23)
This allows latency-free monitoring only for the input sounds in your application
software.
Returning the input sound from your application software (p. 24)
This allows monitoring only for the input sounds that are set to record mode in your
application software. The sound will be delayed by the latency specified in the
RPC-1 control panel, but you will be able to monitor the sound processed by the
software effects.

Saving user mode settings on your computer—Dump
You can save user mode settings on your computer or sequencer. This provides a
convenient way to back up the settings you register to [4] (USR 1) or [5] (USR 2), or
allows you to prepare several sets of user mode settings.
As an example, here’s how to save [4] (USR 1) settings.
1. Hold down [SYSTEM] and press [4] (USR 1).
[SYSTEM] and [4] (USR 1) will light, and user mode 1 will be selected.
2. Press [8] (DUMP/LD).
[8] (DUMP/LD) will light, and the SI-24 will be ready to transmit data.
Whether the SI-24 transmits the
MIDI message from R-BUS or
from MIDI OUT will depend on
the MIDI control mode setting.
For details, refer to “Using the
MIDI connectors to transmit/
receive control data—MIDI
Control Mode” (p. 29).
3. Operate your computer or external device so that it is ready to receive data.
4. Press [8] (DUMP/LD) once again.
[8] (DUMP/LD) will blink and the PLAY indicator will light, while the SI-24 is
transmitting MIDI messages.
When transmission is completed, [8] (DUMP/LD) and PLAY indicator will go dark.
Loading user mode settings that you saved on your computer—Load
Here’s how user mode settings you saved on your computer or sequencer can be
loaded back into the SI-24.
As an example, we will describe the procedure for loading the saved settings into
[4] (USR 1).
1. Hold down [SYSTEM], and press [4] (USR 1).
[SYSTEM] and [4] (USR 1) will light, and you will switch to User Mode 1.
2. Press [8] (DUMP/LD).
[8] (DUMP/LD) will light, and the SI-24 will be ready to receive data.
3. Operate your computer or other external device to make it transmit previouslysaved User mode MIDI messages.

MIDI message.
When reception is completed, [8] (DUMP/LD), the PLAY indicator, and REC
indicator will go dark.
28
Whether the SI-24 receives the
MIDI message from R-BUS or
from MIDI IN will depend on
the MIDI control mode setting.
For details, refer to “Using the
MIDI connectors to transmit/
receive control data—MIDI
Control Mode” (p. 29).
Making system settings
Using the MIDI connectors to transmit/receive
control data—MIDI Control Mode
With the factory settings, the SI-24 will transmit and receive control data via R-BUS.
If you are controlling a MIDI device or a computer that does not have R-BUS, set the

Glossary
Condenser microphone
A type of microphone that applies the principle of a
condenser. It has excellent high-frequency response, and
allows more subtle nuances of sound to be captured. This
type of microphone requires external, phantom power
unless it has its own battery power.
Dynamic microphone
A type of microphone that uses the same principle as an
electrical generator. It operates without a power source.
The most common types are quite durable, and are widely
used as vocal and instrument mics.
IEC
The signals that are transferred via the digital input/
output of this device comply with the IEC60958 and
IEC958 (consumer) formats.
Impedance
The total resistance of an electrical circuit to an alternating
voltage such as audio, expressed in units of an Ohm (Ω).
When transmitting a signal, the output impedance of the
transmitting device must match the input impedance of
the receiving device. If not, problems such as distortion,
noise, and lowered signal level can occur.
On the SI-24, a high-impedance input jack is used for
directly connecting a guitar or bass.
MIDI
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It is
a worldwide standard that allows electronic musical
instruments and personal computers to exchange musical
performance data and messages such as sound selections.
Any MIDI-compatible device can transmit musical data
(as appropriate for the type of device) to any other
MIDI-compatible device, regardless of its manufacturer or
model type.
R-BUS
Roland’s digital communication specification developed
to allow audio and control data to be exchanged between
devices. Multi-channel audio signals, word clock, and
MIDI-compatible operation data and synchronization
signals can be exchanged. A single R-BUS connector
allows simultaneous bi-directional transfer of eight
channels of up to 96 kHz 24-bit digital audio data. The
connector is a DB-25 type, and uses a special cable for
connections. It should NOT be connected to other types of
ports that use similar connectors! Also, you can not use a
computer SCSI cable for R-BUS connections.
46
SCMS
SCMS stands for Serial Copy Management System. This is
a function that protects the rights of copyright holders by
prohibiting recording via a digital connection for more
than two generations. When digital connections are made
between digital recorders that implement this function,
SCMS data will be recorded along with the audio data.
Digital audio data which contains this SCMS data cannot
again be recorded via a digital connection.
Phantom Power
This is a method of providing electrical power to
condenser mics via the mic cables. Generally, a mixer’s
internal phantom power source supplies 6–48 volts (DC).
Supplying phantom power to dynamic mics, audio
playback devices, or other such equipment may result in
damage to the equipment. Turn the phantom power
switch on only when connecting condenser mics which
need phantom power; otherwise, leave it switched off.
