IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2, please read and
observe the following:
Power Supply
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
360
• Depending on the material and temperature
of the surface on which you place the unit, its
rubber feet may discolor or mar the surface.
You can place a piece of felt or cloth under the
rubber feet to prevent this from happening. If
you do so, please make sure that the unit will
not slip or move accidentally.
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.
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.
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, nonabrasive 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.
Repairs and Data
452
• Please be aware that all data contained in the
unit’s memory may be lost when the unit is
sent for repairs. Important data should always
be written down on paper (when possible).
During repairs, due care is taken to avoid the
loss of data. However, in certain cases (such as
when circuitry related to memory itself is out
of order), we regret that it may not be possible
to restore the data, and Roland assumes no
liability concerning such loss of data.
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 write down important data
you have stored in the unit’s memory on paper.
552
• Unfortunately, it may be impossible to restore the
contents of data that was stored in the unit’s
memory once it has been lost. Roland Corporation
assumes no liability concerning such loss of data.

IMPORTANT NOTES
553
852b
• 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.
• 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 copyright-protection feature.)
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.
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.
853
• Do not use this unit for purposes that could

Features of the UA-4FX
Awesome 24-bit audio quality, and input/output support for a
variety of audio formats in both digital and analog
• Capture analog source material (such as records and cassette tapes) into your
computer with astounding sound quality.
• 44.1 kHz / 48 kHz / 96 kHz 24-bit high-quality sound
• Digital (optical) input/output jacks support sampling frequencies of 44.1 kHz / 48
kHz / 96 kHz. You can capture audio signals from CD, MD, or DAT with no loss in
quality.
Advanced Effect audio processor delivers 24-bit quality effects
for recording and playback with simple one-touch operation
• The vacuum tube amp simulator lets you transform sound from a digital source such
as an MP3 file or Internet radio, giving it the fat and warm tone that’s characteristic
of vacuum tubes. Even analog sources can be captured with the distinctively warm
tone of vacuum tubes so you preserve the analog character of the sound.
• With a simple operation you can remove hiss noise from an analog source, and
restore lost tone or presence to make the sound richer and more brilliant.
• A full range of audio processing for playback is also provided. Clear highs, powerful
lows, and deeper reverb for a more spacious sound. The UA-4FX transforms your
computer into an AV processor! The Center Cancel effect lets your computer work as
a karaoke system!
• The UA-4FX is ideal for recording guitar or vocals. In addition to an audio processor
designed for performance, and an FX voice effect that lets you transform the sound
into a different vocal character, you can use a variety of effects (such as AMP/
DRIVE) to obtain a range of sounds, from natural-sounding guitar amp distortion to
aggressive distortion, as well as chorus and delay, all carefully selected from the
BOSS effects processors acclaimed by guitarists everywhere.
Compact size, ideal for desktop use or portability
The UA-4FX is USB bus-powered, taking its power supply from the computer. Since there’s
no need to connect an AC adaptor, it’s ideal for use with a notebook computer.
Powerful impact for game sound playback
The UA-4FX is an ideal way to greatly enhance your computer’s audio environment.
Support for Dolby Digital 5.1 channel playback
You can connect an AV amp and enjoy the dynamic sound of a movie theater.
* Supported only on Windows XP.
* 5.1 channel playback requires Intervideo Corporation’s WinDVD Version 5 or later, sold
separately.

Explanation
This removes low-level sounds or noise that remain in the
background during periods of silence, and removes the 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 suppresses distortion to the low-frequency range (below
220 Hz), making the sound powerful and solid.
This suppresses distortion to the high-frequency range (above
2 kHz), making the sound more powerful.
* 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.

Explanation
When you input a stereo source such as a CD, this lets you
eliminate sounds that are located in the center of the stereo
image, creating a karaoke version.
As you turn the effect knob from the OFF position toward the
right (maximum), a greater portion of the center will be eliminated.
* Applying this to a monaural sound may result in your hearing no sound at all.
* If the playback button is on, this center cancel effect will not
apply to the input.
Boosts the low range of the sound, adding impact.
Boosts the high range of the sound, adding clarity.
Adds reverb to create a more spacious sound.
* If you increase an effect (turn the knob toward the right) excessively, the sound may distort.
In this case, try lowering the volume of the application you’re using. Also try turning the

Explanation
Modifies the pitch, giving the sound a completely different character.
As you turn the effect knob from OFF toward the maximum (far right),
the pitch will rise.
Distorts the sound to create guitar tones ranging from tasteful to extreme.
Turning the effect knob from OFF toward the center position will produce a mild overdriven sound. Turning the knob from the center toward the maximum (far right) will produce more extreme distortion.
Adds depth and spaciousness to the sound, creating a rich sense of stereo.
Adds repeated delays to give the sound more depth, or produce an
echo-like effect.
* 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. Also try turning the effect knob
toward the left to reduce the depth of the effect.
* When you turn on a performance effect, a noise suppressor will be activated to reduce the
noise from your guitar or mic. You can adjust the level of the noise suppressor by holding
down the effect variation button and turning the AMP/DRIVE knob. Turning the knob
toward the left will lower the level.
