page when:
• The AC adaptor or the power-supply cord
has been damaged; or
• Objects have fallen into, or liquid has been
spilled onto the unit; or
• The unit has been exposed to rain (or
otherwise has become wet); or
• The unit does not appear to operate

• Protect the unit from strong impact.
(Do not drop it!)
................................................................................................
015
• Do not force the unit’s power-supply cord to
share an outlet with an unreasonable number
of other devices. Be especially careful when
using extension cords—the total power used
by all devices you have connected to the
extension cord’s outlet must never exceed the
power rating (watts/amperes) for the
extension cord. Excessive loads can cause the
insulation on the cord to heat up and
eventually melt through.
................................................................................................

• Before using the unit in a foreign country,
consult with your retailer, the nearest Roland
Service Center, or an authorized Roland
distributor, as listed on the "Information"
page.

may be of a level that could cause permanent
hearing loss. Damage to speakers or other
system components may result.
................................................................................................
101b
• The unit and the AC adaptor should be
located so their location or position does not
interfere with their proper ventilation.
................................................................................................
102d
• Always grasp only the output plug or the
body of the AC adaptor when plugging into,
or unplugging from, this unit or an outlet.
................................................................................................
103b
• Whenever the unit is to remain unused for an
extended period of time, disconnect the AC
adaptor.
................................................................................................
104
• Try to prevent cords and cables from
becoming entangled. Also, all cords and
cables should be placed so they are out of the
reach of children.
................................................................................................
106
• Never climb on top of, nor place heavy
objects on the unit.
................................................................................................
107d
• Never handle the AC adaptor body, or its
output plugs, with wet hands when plugging
into, or unplugging from, an outlet or this
unit.
................................................................................................
108b
• Before moving the unit, disconnect the AC
adaptor and all cords coming from external
devices.
................................................................................................
109b
• Before cleaning the unit, turn off the power
and unplug the AC adaptor from the outlet.
................................................................................................
110b
• Whenever you suspect the possibility of
lightning in your area, disconnect the AC
adaptor from the outlet.
................................................................................................

• Should you remove the optical connector
caps, make sure to put them in a safe place
out of children's reach, so there is no chance
of them being swallowed accidentally.

IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE
UNIT SAFELY” on page 2 and 3, please read and
observe the following:
Power Supply
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, and is
not a cause for concern.
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
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 in another MIDI device (e.g., a sequencer).
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.
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.
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.
355
• To avoid possible breakdown, do not use the unit in
a wet area, such as an area exposed to rain or other
moisture.
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
• 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.
4
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.
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.
Copyright
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.
852a
• When exchanging audio signals through a digital
connection with an external instrument, this unit can
perform recording without being subject to 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.)
853
• Do not use this unit for purposes that could infringe
on a copyright held by a third party. We assume no
responsibility whatsoever with regard to any
infringements of third-party copyrights arising
through your use of this unit.

Features of the UA-700
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the UA-700. The UA-700 is an audio interface
that can be connected to your computer via a USB cable, allowing you to digitally record and play
back high-quality audio data.
Built-in COSM effects
The UA-700 features the same COSM engine that has won acclaim with the BOSS GP-20 and GT-6.
From the heavy distortion of a tube amp, to a lightly distorted crunch sound, or the clean sound
typical of a JC-120, these effects deliver the powerful tones of a guitar amp, faithfully simulating
even the subtle impact of picking and volume.
24-bit/96 kHz data for pristine audio quality
You can enjoy high-quality digital recording/playback on your computer using 24-bit/96 kHz*
data.
* Your application must support 24-bit/96 kHz data.
* Simultaneous recording and playback at 96 kHz is not possible.
Wide variety of input/output jacks
Two combo-type jacks, which provide both XLR balanced (with phantom power) and TRS
balanced inputs, are provided. One input provides a high-impedance (Hi-Z) connection for
directly connecting your guitar or bass. The UA-700 also provides RCA phono-type inputs and
outputs, phone outputs, and digital input/output jacks (coaxial and optical), making it possible for
you to readily connect almost any kind of device.
Direct Monitor function
The Direct Monitor function lets you monitor the input signal directly from headphones or the
analog outputs without passing the audio through your computer application. You can also switch
the monitor function on/off from an ASIO™ 2.0 compatible application.
WDM/ASIO 2.0 drivers included
You can enjoy high performance with WDM compatible applications such as SONAR™, and ASIO
compatible applications such as Cubase™ and Logic™. Of course you can also use applications
that support MME (Windows®) or Sound Manager (Mac OS®).
* Roland provides no guarantee or support regarding the operation of sequencer software or audio
editing software made by other companies. Please contact the manufacturer of the software you are
using.

Features of the UA-700
What is USB?
USB stands for Universal Serial Bus. It is a new interface used to connect various peripheral devices
to a computer.
USB allows more than one peripheral device to be connected via a single USB cable, and also allows
data to be transmitted more rapidly than conventional serial ports.
Peripherals can also be connected or disconnected with the power turned on, and the computer will
automatically recognize the peripheral that has been plugged in. (Some peripherals may require
settings or other operations to be performed.)
About SCMS
SCMS (Serial Copy Management System) is a function that protects the rights of the copyright
owner by prohibiting second-generation or later copying via a digital connection to a consumer
digital audio device such as a DAT recorder or MD recorder. When a recording is made via a digital
connection on a digital recorder that has this function, SCMS data will be recorded along with the
digital audio signal. A digital audio signal containing this SCMS data cannot be recorded again via
a digital connection.

● AC adaptor
This is the only AC adaptor you should use with the UA-700. Do not use any AC adaptor other than
the supplied one, since doing so may cause malfunction.
The ferrite core attached to the cable of the AC adaptor is for the purpose of preventing
electromagnetic interference. Do not remove it. (However, the ACI-120C AC adaptor does not
come with a ferrite core, since it is unnecessary.)
* If you require a replacement due to loss or damage, please contact a “EDIROL/Roland Service Center” listed
in the “Information” section at the end of this manual. If you purchase a new AC adaptor, please specify the
special AC adaptor with ferrite core designed for the UA-700.
● USB cable

What is a driver?
fig.05-1e_50
A “driver” is software that transfers data
between the UA-700 and application software
running on your computer, when your
computer and the UA-700 are connected by a
USB cable. The driver sends data from your
application to the UA-700, and from the UA-700
to your application.

UA-700
Advanced mode and Standard driver mode
The UA-700 has two operating modes, Advanced mode and Standard driver mode, and a
different driver is used by each mode.
■ Advanced mode
fig.advance-on
The UA-700 will operate in this mode when the ADVANCE mode is
turned ON. (➝Refer to ADVANCE (mode select) switch (p. 65))
Advance mode is
ON
The special driver included on the CD-ROM will be used, allowing
audio to be recorded/played/edited with high quality and stable
timing.
In Advanced mode, audio signals can be transferred between the UA-700 and the computer at a
resolution of 24 bits and sampling frequencies of 44.1 / 48 / 96 kHz. Select this mode if you are
using an application that allows high-quality audio recording/playback/editing, such as an
application that supports 24 bit audio (e.g., the Cakewalk series or Cool Edit) or an ASIOcompatible application (e.g., Cubase VST or Logic Audio).
(➝ Installing the special driver (p. 13))
■ Standard driver mode
fig.advance-off
The UA-700 will operate in this mode when the ADVANCE mode is
turned OFF. (➝Refer to ADVANCE (mode select) switch (p. 65))
The standard USB audio driver included with Windows will be used. In
Advance mode is
OFF
standard driver mode, audio signals are transferred between the UA700 and the computer at a resolution of 16 bits and sampling
frequencies of 44.1 kHz. Select this mode if you are using an application that uses Window’s own
functionality, such as an application that uses the computer’s CD-ROM drive to play back CDaudio, or an application that uses the software synthesizer included with Windows.
The standard driver that is included with Windows does not support ASIO.
(➝ Installing the OS-standard driver (p. 27))
* If you want to use MIDI, use Advanced mode.
* The standard driver included with Windows does not support ASIO.
12
Getting Connected and Installing Drivers (Windows)
Switching between Advanced mode and Standard driver mode
If you first install both the special driver and the standard driver, you will be able to switch
between Advance and Standard driver modes by operating the UA-700's ADVANCE (mode
select) switch.
* In order for the setting of the ADVANCE (mode select) switch to take effect, you must exit all sequencer
software and other applications that use the UA-700, switch off the UA-700, then turn it back on again.
Installing the special driver
The installation procedure will differ depending on your system.
Please proceed to one of the following sections, depending on the system you use.
• Windows XP/2000 users .................................(p. 13)
• Windows Me/98 users.....................................(p. 25)
■ Windows XP/2000 users
The CD-ROM contains two types of driver for Windows XP/2000 (WDM driver and MME driver).
Normally, you should use the WDM driver.
WDM driver
You should use this driver if you have specified WDM driver mode for SONAR or a similar
application. This will provide the highest-quality audio performance.
* If you are using Windows 2000, it is not possible to use 24-bit audio with applications that do not support a
WDM driver mode, such as Cool Edit or Media Player.
MME driver
This driver allows you to use 24-bit audio even from applications that do not have a WDM driver
mode, such as Cool Edit. It is not possible to use the MME driver from WDM driver mode of an
application such as SONAR.
It is not possible to install both the WDM driver and the MME driver. You must select one
beforehand, and install only that driver. If after installing one of these drivers you decide to change
drivers, you must first delete the already-installed driver and then install the new driver.
(➝ Deleting the special driver (p. 106))
* The WDM driver and the MME driver can be installed using the same procedure.

Installing the ASIO driver
You must install the MIDI driver even if you will be using only audio on the
UA-700. Be sure to install the MIDI driver before you install the ASIO
driver.
This section explains how to install the ASIO driver that allows the UA-700
to be used by your sequencer software or audio editing software. For details
on installation and settings of the ASIO driver, be sure to also read the Driver
E–ASIO Driver–Setting ASIO Driver-E.HTM document on the CD-ROM.
In Advanced mode, the UA-700 cannot play back audio data from the
Macintosh’s sound manager (such as audio CDs and alert sounds).
The ASIO driver of the UA-700 supports the following audio input/output
channels.
• Audio input ........ 24/16 bit1 stereo ch. (2 monaural chs.)
• Audio output ...... 24/16 bit1 stereo ch. (2 monaural chs.)
ASIO (Steinberg Audio
Stream In/Out Interface)
This is an audio interface
standard promoted by the
Steinberg Corporation.
When the UA-700 is used
with ASIO-compatible
software, the
synchronization precision
will be improved, allowing
a more sophisticated music
production environment.
Here we will explain how to install the ASIO 1.0 16 bit-compatible driver.
If your ASIO-compatible software supports ASIO 2.0 or recording/playback of
24 bit audio data, using the following drivers will provide a higher quality
environment.

1. Input monitor switch
This switches whether the input signal from the mic input jacks, guitar input
jack, line input jacks, and digital input jack will be output from the
headphone jack, master output jacks, and digital output jacks.
If this switch is on, the input signal will be output. If this switch is off, the
2
input signal will not be output. Turn this off (dark) if the audio data is being
“thru-ed” within your computer, or if you have connected a mixer and are outputting the input
signal directly from your mixer for monitoring. The volume you adjust here will not affect the
recording level.
* The input monitoring on/off state can be controlled directly from an ASIO 2.0 compatible application such
as Cubase.
2. Input monitor volume
This knob adjusts the volume of the input signal from the mic input jacks, guitar input jack, line input
jacks, and digital input jacks that is output from the headphone jack or master output jacks.

Noise is heard when you connect a record player
• Have you connected the grounding terminal?
Depending on your system, the UA-700 may be affected by noise from your computer. Please ground
the grounding terminals of the UA-700 and your computer.
Sometimes this problem can be solved by grounding the chassis of your computer, or the grounding
connector of your computer's AC power supply. You should also check whether there is a device
nearby that produces a strong magnetic field, such as a television or a microwave oven. (p. 68)

Troubleshooting
A loud buzz is present in the guitar signal
• Does the buzz decrease when you lower the volume of your guitar?
If the buzz decreases when you lower the volume of your guitar, it is possible that the pickup of your
guitar is receiving noise from a computer or a display screen. Move as far away from the computer as
possible.
Sometimes this problem can be solved by grounding the chassis of your computer, or the grounding
connector of your computer's AC power supply. You should also check whether there is a device
nearby that produces a strong magnetic field, such as a television or a microwave oven. (p. 68)

MIDI implementation
The operation of the UA-700 can be controlled by MIDI messages. The following
MIDI messages are used for control.
❍When connected via USB
MIDI messages transmitted and received by the computer via the UA-700 Control
port
❍When not connected via USB
●Data Set 1 (DT1)
These messages transmit the actual data, and are used to transfer data settings to a
device.
Data requested by a Data Request (RQ1) is also returned in this format.
Status
F0H

These messages are used to recall patches.
The operation will be the same for any MIDI channel number 0H--FH.
■System exclusive messages
●Data Request 1 (RQ1)
These messages request another device to “please send data.”
The address and size indicate the type and size of data that is being requested.
If a data request message is received, and if that device is in a state in which it can
transmit data, and the address and size are appropriate, the requested data will be
transmitted as a “Data set 1 (DT1)” message. If not, nothing will be transmitted.

2. Individual parameter transfer
Individual parameter transfer allows a single exclusive message (a “F0...F7” packet) to transmit (or request transmission of) data for a single parameter.
Use the addresses in the parameter address map listed below for individual parameter transfer.
On the UA-700, an individual parameter will be transmitted each time an internal parameter changes due to knob or switch operations. It is also possible to obtain the current
state of a parameter by using a Data Request 1 (RQ1) to request it. In this case, the size value of the transmission request is fixed at “4.”
The data is using four-byte nibble, with offset 8000H (decimal 0 is 8000H).

An interval of at least 40 ms must be placed between each exclusive message.
3. Bulk dump
Use bulk dump messages when you want to transmit or receive a large amount of data in a single operation.
On the UA-700, all parameters will be transmitted in the form of a bulk dump when a patch is loaded.
The current state of all parameters can also be obtained by issuing a Data Request 1 (RQ1).
A bulk dump is divided into multiple exclusive messages for transmission.
The address map for a bulk dump is outlined below.
The address when requesting transmission is only the starting address (21 00 00), and the size value is fixed at “388” (request all parameters).
Request all parameters: F0 41 10 00 58 11 00 21 00 00 00 00 03 04 58 F7
The transmitted data is two-byte data with offset 2000H (decimal 0 is 2000H). The order of the parameters included in the data and their ranges are the same as for individual
parameter transmission.

An interval of at least 40 ms must be left between each exclusive message.
You must also leave an interval of at least 200 ms after transmitting one set of bulk dump data.

4. Supplementary material
●Example of an actual MIDI message
●Decimal and Hexadecimal table
(An “H” is appended to the end of numbers in hexadecimal notation.)
<Example1> CE 04
CnH is the Program Change status. “n” is the MIDI channel number. EH = 14, and
04H = 04. Thus, this is a program change message on MIDI channel 15, for program
number 05.
In MIDI documentation, data values and addresses/sizes of Exclusive messages,
etc. are expressed as hexadecimal values for each 7 bits.
The following table shows how these correspond to decimal numbers.
●Exclusive message examples and checksum
calculation
fig.11-22e
In order to verify that the message was received correctly, Roland exclusive
messages (RQ1, DT1) add a checksum following the end of the data (before the F7).
The checksum value is determined by the address and data (or size) of the
exclusive message that is transmitted.

The decimal expression of the MIDI channel, program change, etc., is one
greater than the decimal value shown in the table above.
*
The hexadecimal expression for each 7 bits allows a maximum of 128 steps (0-127) to be expressed by one byte of data. Multiple bytes are used if the data
requires greater resolution than this. For example, a value expressed by two 7bit bytes “aa” and “bbH” would be aa x 128 + bb.
*
In the case of signed (+/-) data, 00H = -64, 40H = +/-0, and 7FH = +63; i.e., a
value 64 less than the decimal value shown in the above table is used. In the case
of a two-byte value, 00 00H = -8192, 40 00 = +/-0, and 7F 7F = +8191. For
example, a value of “aa” and “bbH” would have a decimal expression of aa bbH
- 40 00H = aa x 128 + bb - 64 x 128.
*
In the case of data indicated as “use nibble data,” hexadecimal expression in 4bit units is used. A nibble-expressed value of the two bytes 0a and 0bH would
have a value of a x 16 + b.
<Example1>
What is the decimal expression of 5AH?
From the preceding table, 5AH = 90.
<Example2>
What is the decimal expression of the 7-bit hexadecimal value 12 34H?
From the preceding table, 12H = 18, and 34H = 52.
Thus, this is
18 x 128 + 52 = 2356
<Example3>
What is the decimal expression of the nibble-expressed value 0A 03 09 0D?
From the preceding table, 0AH = 10, 03H = 3, 09H = 9, and 0DH = 13.
Thus, this is
((10 x 16 + 3) x 16 + 9) x 16 + 13 = 41885
<Example4> What is the nibble-expressed value of decimal 1258?
1258 ÷ 16 = 78 (quotient) ... 10 (remainder)
78 ÷ 16 = 4 (quotient) ... 14 (remainder)
4 ÷ 16 = 0 (quotient) ... 4 (remainder)
From the preceding table, 0 = 00H, 4 = 04H, 14 = 0EH, 10 = 0HA.
Thus, the nibble-expressed value is
00 04 0E 0AH
❍Calculating the checksum
(“H” has been added following hexadecimal values)
The checksum is a value that results in a lower 7 bits of 0 when the address, size,
and checksum itself are added together.
Specifically, the calculation will be as follows when the exclusive message you
want to transmit has an address of aa bb ccH and data or size of dd ee ffH.
aa + bb + cc + dd + ee + ff = total
total ÷ 128 = quotient ... remainder
128 - remainder = checksum
<Example1>
Using an Individual message to set Amp Modeling Drive to +20.
From the parameter address map, the address for Amp Modeling Drive is 00H 20H
10H 21H. If the parameter value is +20, this will be 14H + 8000H (offset) = 8014H,
which is expressed as nibbles by the four bytes 08H 00H 01H 04H.

Next, we calculate the checksum.
00H+20H+01H+21H+08H+00H+01H+04H=32+1+33+8+1+4 =79 (sum)
115 (total) ÷ 128 = 0 (quotient) ... 79 (remainder)
Checksum = 128 - 79 (remainder) = 49 = 31H
Thus, F0 41 10 00 58 12 00 20 01 21 08 00 01 04 31 F7 is the message that is
transmitted.
<Example2>
Using an Individual message to set the Noise Gate & EQ Noise Gate setting to +127.
From the parameter address map, the address for Chorus & Reverb Chorus Mix is
00H 20H 05H 3DH . The parameter value for +127 is 7FH + 8000H (offset) = 807FH,
which is expressed as nibbles by the four bytes 08H 00H 07H 0FH.

Next, we calculate the checksum.
00H+20H+05H+3DH+08H+00H+07H+0FH=32+5+61+8+7+15 = 128 (sum)
128 (total) ÷ 128 = 1 (quotient) ... 0 (remainder)
Checksum = 128 - 0 (remainder) = 128 = 80H
However, as an exception, the checksum for a remainder of 0 is not 80H but rather
00H.
Thus, F0 41 10 00 58 12 00 20 05 3D 08 00 07 0F 00 F7 is the message that is
