IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 3, please read and observe the
following:
Power Supply
Maintenance
301
401a
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical
outlet.
• 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.
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.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
552
• 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.
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the contents
of data that was stored hard disk once it has been lost.
Roland Corporation assumes no liability concerning such
loss of data.
Placement
• 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.
307
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
563
• Unauthorized duplication, reproduction, hiring, and
lending prohibited.
5
FA-101_e.book 6 ページ 2004年4月5日 月曜日 午後3時52分
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.
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.

This is an on/off switch for the phantom power supplied to the XLR connectors of the combo input jacks
(1) on the front panel.
* You must leave the phantom power turned off (right position) unless condenser mics requiring phantom power are
connected to the XLR jacks. Supplying phantom power to a dynamic mic or an audio playback device may cause
malfunction. For details on the requirements of your mic, refer to its owner’s manual.

20. Grounding terminal
Depending on the circumstances of a particular setup, you may experience a discomforting sensation, or
perceive that the surface feels gritty to the touch when you touch this device, microphones connected to it, or
the metal portions of other objects, such as guitars. This is due to an infinitesimal electrical charge, which is
absolutely harmless. However, if you are concerned about this, connect the ground terminal (see figure) with
an external ground. When the unit is grounded, a slight hum may occur, depending on the particulars of your
installation. If you are unsure of the connection method, contact the nearest Roland Service Center, or an
authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the “Information” page.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be dangerous in the event of lightning)
21. MIDI IN/OUT connectors
You can connect these to the MIDI connectors of your MIDI equipment to send and receive MIDI messages.
22. FireWire (IEEE 1394) connectors
Use a FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable to connect these to your computer. These two connectors operate in the same
way; it makes no difference which you use.
There are two types of connectors, as follows.
fig.6-pin
•
6-pin FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable
Use the included 6-pin ↔ 6-pin cable. You will be able to use bus power.
fig.4-pin
•
4-pin FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable
Use the included 6-pin ↔ 4-pin cable. If your computer has a 4-pin IEEE 1394 connector
(FireWire connector, iLink connector, DV connector), you cannot use bus power.
23. Input level adjustment knob
This adjusts the level of the sound that is input at input jacks 7 and 8 (26).
Input jacks 7 and 8 (26) are designed with a higher gain so that you can connect them to audio devices that
have a lower output level, such as CD players or MIDI sound modules. If you connect these inputs to a device
that has a higher output level, such as a mixer, use this input level knob to adjust the level.
fig.min
* If no device is connected to the input jacks, turn the input level knob all the way toward the left (MIN).
24. Main output jacks (output jacks 1, 2)
These output the mixed sound that is being input via the input jacks and being output from the computer.
25. Output jacks 3–8
(Nominal output: +4 dBu)
These jacks output analog audio signals. Balanced output is supported.
26. Input jacks 3–8
Connect these when you want to input audio signals from mixers, audio devices, or MIDI sound modules.
Balanced input is supported.

Set your software and the FA-101 to the same sample rate.
If you switch the FA-101's sample rate, you must turn the power of the FA-101 off, then on again to get the
setting to take effect.
Try adding memory.
Adding memory will improve the processing capability of your computer. For details on how to add memory,
refer to the owner’s manual of your computer.
If you are using a Macintosh, try pressing the FA-101's digital input switch.
Even if you aren't making use of digital input/output, problems with noise and sound dropout can sometimes
be alleviated by switching the FA-101's digital input switch on and off.

Troubleshooting
Is the FA-101 connected to a FireWire (IEEE 1394) hub?
Try connecting the FA-101 directly to the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector of your computer itself.
Noise may be entering via the line inputs or mic inputs.
If a MIDI sound module with a FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector is connected via FireWire (IEEE 1394) to the
same computer as the FA-101, and the output of the MIDI sound module is connected to the input jacks of the
FA-101, noise from the computer may be heard via the MIDI sound module from the FA-101. In this case, you
can either connect the MIDI sound module and FA-101 in parallel via a self-powered hub, or connect the MIDI
sound module in series or via a MIDI interface.
Playback/recording stops midway, and subsequent playback/recording is not possible
While you were using the FA-101, could your computer have performed a task with a heavy
processing load, such as accessing a CD-ROM drive or network?
If a heavy processing load occurs while the FA-101 is being used, it may not work correctly. In this case, stop
playback/recording, and then start playback/recording once again. If you are still unable to play/record
correctly, close all software that had been using the FA-101, and re-connect the FA-101.
Digitally recorded sound has distortion, the wrong pitch, or contains noise
Is the sample rate setting in your software the same as the sample rate of the digital device
connected to the digital input connector?
Set your software and the FA-101 to the same sample rate.
If you switch the FA-101's sample rate, you must turn the power of the FA-101 off, then on again to get the
setting to take effect.

Troubleshooting
Noise or distortion occurs when the FA-101 is not
connected to your computer
The sound is too weak
Has a mic or guitar been left connected?
If a mic or guitar is connected to the FA-101, disconnect the mic or guitar and turn the input sensitivity knob all
the way toward the left (lowering the input level).
Have you connected the grounding terminal?
Connecting the chassis of your computer or the grounding terminal of your computer’s AC power cord to an
electrical ground may solve the problem. Also, make sure that a device that produces a strong magnetic field,
such as a television or microwave oven, is not located nearby.
Could numerous audio devices be connected?
Noise may occur if numerous audio devices are connected. Do not connect audio devices you are not using.
Sound is distorted
Is the output level indicator lit red?
If you are inputting sound via the combo input jacks, use the FA-101’s input sensitivity knobs to lower the
input level.
Sound of a device connected to the input jacks is distorted
Insufficient volume from a device connected to the audio input/output jacks
Is the input level appropriate?
If you are inputting audio via input jacks 7 and 8, use the FA-101's input level adjustment knob (rear panel)
to adjust the input level. If you are inputting audio via the combo input jacks, use the input sensitivity knobs
(front panel) to adjust the input level.
If you are inputting audio via the INPUT2 combo input jack, check the setting of the input impedance select
switch.
Is the direct monitor volume set appropriately?
Adjust the volume as described in Direct Monitor Volume (p. 11).
A substantial amount of noise is present in the guitar sound
Does the noise decrease when you turn down the volume of your guitar?
If the noise decreases when you turn down the volume of your guitar, the guitar pickup may be affected by
noise from your computer or display. Try locating the guitar as far away from the computer as possible.
Insufficient volume from your guitar
Are you using the correct jack?
Connect your guitar to the INPUT 2 combo input jack.
Is the input impedance select switch set correctly?
Set the input impedance select switch to Hi-Z.
Insufficient volume from a mic
Is the input level appropriate?
Turn the input sensitivity knob toward the right to adjust the input volume.

Can’t start the Cubase
The first time you use the FA-101 with Cubase, turn on the power with the FA-101's sample rate
select switch at the 44.1 kHz position.
If this switch is not set to 44.1 kHz, it may be impossible to start Cubase.
