observe the following:
Power Supply
Maintenance
307
401a
• 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
• 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.
351
402
• 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.
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or
solvents of any kind, to avoid the possibility
of discoloration and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
352a
552
• This device may interfere with radio and
television reception. Do not use this device in
the vicinity of such receivers.
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore
the contents of data that was stored on a
storage device (e.g., hard disk) once it has
been lost. Roland Corporation assumes no
liability concerning such loss of data.
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.
4
553

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.

IMPORTANT NOTES
562
852b
• 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.
• When exchanging audio signals through a
digital connection with an external
instrument, this unit can perform recording
without being subjected to some of 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 copyrightprotection feature.)
563
• Unauthorized duplication, reproduction,
hiring, and lending prohibited.
564
• Before you open the included CD-ROM, you
must read the “license agreement.” Opening
the CD-ROM will be taken to mean your
acceptance of the license agreement.
Handling CD-ROMs
801
• Avoid touching or scratching the shiny
underside (encoded surface) of the disc.
Damaged or dirty CD-ROM discs may not be
read properly. Keep your discs clean using a
commercially available CD cleaner.
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.

Driver
USB cable
Computer
UA-3FX
A “driver” is software that transfers data between the UA-3FX and application software
running on your computer, when your computer and the UA-3FX are connected by a
USB cable. The driver sends data from your application to the UA-3FX, and from the UA3FX to your application.
Advanced mode and Standard driver mode
The UA-3FX 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-3FX will operate in this mode when the ADVANCED mode is
turned ON. (➔ Refer to “ADVANCED (mode select) switch” (p.
13)) 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-3FX and the computer
at a resolution of 16 / 24 bits and sampling frequencies of 32 / 44.1 / 48 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 or an ASIO-compatible application (e.g.,
Cubase VST, Logic Audio, or Digital Performer).
(➔ “Installing the special driver” (p. 16))
ASIO (Steinberg Audio Stream In/Out Interface)
This is an audio interface protocol promoted by the Steinberg Corporation. If the UA3FX is used with ASIO-compatible software, the audio synchronization will be more
accurate, allowing you to utilize a more sophisticated music production environment.

Getting Connected and Installing Drivers (Windows)
■ Standard driver mode
fig.advance-off
The UA-3FX will operate in this mode when the ADVANCED mode is
turned OFF. (➔Refer to “ADVANCED (mode select) switch” (p.
13)) The standard USB audio driver included with Windows will be
used. In standard driver mode, audio signals are transferred between the UA-3FX and the
computer at a resolution of 16 / 24 bits and sampling frequencies of 32 / 44.1 / 48 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 CD-audio, or an
application that uses the software synthesizer included with Windows.
(➔ “Installing the OS-standard driver” (p. 54))
* The standard driver included with Windows does not support ASIO.
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 Advanced and Standard driver modes by operating the UA-3FX’s
ADVANCED (mode select) switch.
* In order for the setting of the ADVANCED (mode select) switch to take effect, you must exit
all sequencer software and other applications that use the UA-3FX, and re-connect the UA-3FX.

UA-3FX
A “driver” is software that transfers data between the UA-3FX and application software
running on your computer, when your computer and the UA-3FX are connected by a USB
cable. The driver sends data from your application to the UA-3FX, and from the UA-3FX to
your application.
Advanced mode and Standard driver mode
The UA-3FX 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-3FX will operate in this mode when the ADVANCED mode
is turned ON. (➔ Refer to "ADVANCED (mode select) switch" (p. 13))
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-3FX and the computer
at a resolution of 16 / 24 bits and sampling frequencies of 32 / 44.1 / 48 kHz. Select
Advanced mode if you are using an application that is able to record/playback/edit highquality audio, such as a 24 bit audio application or an ASIO-compatible application such
as Cubase VST, Logic Audio, and Metro.
In Advanced mode, the UA-3FX cannot play back audio data (audio CDs or warning
sounds) from the Macintosh sound manager.
(➔ "Installing the special driver" (Windows p. 16, Macintosh p. 28)
ASIO (Steinberg Audio Stream In/Out Interface)
This is an audio interface protocol promoted by the Steinberg Corporation. If the UA3FX is used with ASIO-compatible software, the audio synchronization will be more
accurate, allowing you to utilize a more sophisticated music production environment.

■ Standard driver mode
fig.advance-off
The UA-3FX will operate in this mode when the ADVANCED mode
is turned OFF. (➔ Refer to "ADVANCED (mode select) switch" (p. 13))
The standard USB audio driver included with MacOS will be used. In
standard driver mode, audio signals are transferred between the UA-3FX and the computer
at a resolution of 16 / 24 bits and sampling frequencies of 32 / 44.1 / 48 kHz. Select this
mode if you are using an application that uses MacOS’s own functionality, such as an
application that uses the computer’s CD-ROM drive to play back CD-audio, or an
application that uses the software synthesizer included with MacOS. The standard driver
included with MacOS does not support ASIO.
(➔ "Installing the OS-standard driver" (p. 54))
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 Advanced and Standard driver modes by operating the UA-3FX’s
ADVANCED (mode select) switch.
* In order for the setting of the ADVANCED (mode select) switch to take effect, you must exit
all sequencer software and other applications that use the UA-3FX, and re-connect the UA-3FX.
The installation procedure will differ depending on your system.

* The UA-3FX complies with SCMS. If the audio data that is input from the digital audio input
connector contains copy-prohibit flags (as will be the case if you recorded an MD from a CD), the UA3FX will not allow this data to be recorded on your computer. (The sound will be output from the line
output jacks and headphone jack.)
* If you want to input sound from the line input jacks or the guitar/mic input jack, refer to “Recording a
cassette tape or LP into your computer” (p. 32). The UA-3FX cannot mix the sounds from these
inputs with the input from the digital input connector for recording.
* If no signal is being received from the digital input connector even though the recording source select
switch is set to DIGITAL, the UA-3FX will operate in the same way as when the switch is set to
ANALOG.

* 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 mic
Most mics are either dynamic mics or condenser mics; either type of mic can be
connected to the UA-3FX. The UA-3FX also supports “plug-in powered mics,” a type of
miniature condenser mic designed for connection to the mic input of a computer or the
recording jack of an MD (Mini Disc) recorder.
Only a mic that supports plug-in power may be connected to the mic input jack (plugin powered mic). Connecting any other type of mic or a conventional stereo mini-type
plug to this jack may damage the circuitry.

Applying effects
The UA-3FX’s effects provide an easy way to change the character of the sound, and are a
great convenience for audio editing. Three types of digital effect are provided, and these can
be applied while you play back sound or record from a mic or guitar. You can use the four
knobs to easily adjust the character of the effect that is applied to the mic, guitar, or the
sound from the line inputs or digital input.
* Before you continue, make connections and basic settings as described in “Basic use” (p. 33).

fig.fx-master2.e
Effect
NOISE SUP
ENHANCER
LOW BOOST
LIMITER
Explanation
This removes low-level sounds or noise that remain in the
background during periods of silence, and removes the hiss
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.
This sharpens the sound, boosting the high-frequency range to
improve the clarity.
This makes the low-frequency range more powerful.
This reduces distortion by lowering the input signal level
when loud sounds are input, and also makes the overall sound
more consistent by smoothing out differences between high
and low volume levels.
* 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.
