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: 48 V DC, 20 mA Max) 5

In addition to the items listed under USING THE UNIT SAFELY on page 3, please read and observe the following:

Power Supply

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.

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.

Handling CD-ROMs

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.
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.

Front panel



1. Combo input jacks
These are analog audio input jacks with mic preamps. They accommodate either XLR or phone plugs, allowing you to connect a variety of equipment. Either balanced or unbalanced signals may be connected. Phantom power (48 V) is provided for XLR type connections, allowing you to connect condenser mics that require phantom power. In this case, turn on the phantom power switch (19) located on the rear panel.


XLR plug
TRS phone Phone plug plug (unbalanced) (balanced)
* This instrument is equipped with balanced (XLR/TRS) type 1:GND 2:HOT input jacks. Wiring diagrams for 3:COLD these jacks are shown on the right. Make connections after first checking the wiring diagrams of other equipment you intend to connect.




2. Input sensitivity knobs
These adjust the input level of the signals input to the front panel combo input jacks (1).
3. Input impedance select switch
This switch selects either high impedance (Hi-Z) or low impedance (Lo-Z) as the type of device connected to the INPUT 2 phone jack of the combo input jacks (1). If you have connected a guitar or bass to this jack, select the high impedance (Hi-Z) setting; if you have connected a mic, select the low impedance (Lo-Z) setting. * Combo input jack INPUT 1 is fixed at low impedance (Lo-Z).

fig.front.eps 11
Front and rear panel 4. Peak/Limiter indicator
This indicates whether the signal being input via the combo input jacks (1) is distorting, or whether the limiter is operating.
Limiter switch Limiter on Status The indicator will function as a limiter indicator. When the input signal exceeds a certain level, the limiter will operate and the indicator will light green. The indicator will function as a peak indicator. Use the input sensitivity knobs for each input jack to adjust the input level so that the peak indicator does not light red. The red LED will light if the sound distorts.

Limiter off

5. Power indicator
Lights when the power is on.

6. Output indicator

This will light green if signals are being sent from the computers audio output ports 1 and 2 (OUT 1/2). (see block diagram front cover)

Rear panel


14. 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)

15. Power switch

Used to switch the power on (DC IN) or off (OFF), and for switching to bus power (BUS). BUS The FA-66 can operate on bus power if its connected to your computer via a 6-pin 6-pin FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable. In this case, power is supplied from your computer via the FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable. If you want to use bus power, set the power switch to the BUS position.


6-pin type You can use bus power if your computer has a 6-pin IEEE 1394 connector (FireWire connector, iLink connector, DV connector). * With some computers, the FA-66 may not operate on bus power. If so, connect the included AC adaptor to an AC outlet and use it to supply power to the FA-66. In this case, the power will be on when you set the power switch to the DC IN position.


4-pin type If your computer has a 4-pin FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector, you cannot use bus power. Connect the included AC adaptor to the AC adaptor jack, and set the power switch to DC IN. 15

Front and rear panel 16. AC adaptor jack
Connect the included AC adaptor to this jack. * Never use any AC adaptor other than the supplied unit; doing so may cause malfunction.
17. FireWire (IEEE 1394) connectors
Use a FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable to connect these to your computer. We recommend that you use a 6-pin cable to connect the FA-66 to your computer, and a 4-pin cable to connect the FA-66 to any peripheral device you may be using.
6-pin connector If the IEEE 1394 connector (FireWire connector, iLink connector, DV connector) of your computer is a 6-pin type, use the included 6-pin 6-pin cable. The FA-66 will be able to operate on bus power. Normally you should use this method of connection. If the IEEE 1394 connector (FireWire connector, iLink connector, DV connector) of your computer is a 4-pin type, use the included 6-pin 4-pin cable. However, in this case, the FA-66 will not operate on bus power. 4-pin connector Normally, the 4-pin connector is used when connecting the FA-66 to a peripheral device.

Decreasing the buffer size will shorten the latency. Increasing the buffer size may eliminate problems such as clicks or pops in the sound. * Latency is the time delay from when the software plays back audio data until sound is actual heard from an audio device such as the FA-66. Heres how to adjust the buffer size. 48

If you experience problems, read this chapter first/ It contains tips for solving most problems.
Driver-related problems (Windows)
Cant install the driver correctly
You attempted to install as described in Installing the driver, but did not succeed. Install the FA-66 driver once again as described in Installing the driver (Windows) (p. 24). Also check the Device Manager to see whether Other device, Unknown device, ?, !, or x is shown for any device. If you see such a device, delete it. Does the Device Manager show Other device, Unknown device, or any device marked with ?, !, or x? If driver installation did not end successfully, the installed driver may remain in an incomplete state. Install the FA-66 driver once again as described in Installing the driver (Windows) (p. 24). Is the FA-66 connected correctly? Make sure that you have used a FireWire (IEEE 1394) cable to correctly connect the FA-66 to the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector of your computer. Is the FA-66 powered up? Make sure that the FA-66s power is on. Make sure that the POWER switch is on. Could the FA-66s power switch be set to BUS? Even if you normally use the FA-66 on bus power, you should connect the AC adaptor and set the power switch to the DC IN position while installing the driver (so that the power supply does not become unstable). Could other FireWire (IEEE 1394) devices be connected? When installing, all FireWire (IEEE 1394) devices other than the FA-66 should be disconnected from your computer. If you have connected the FA-66 to an external FireWire (IEEE 1394) hard disk, please connect the FA-66 directly to an IEEE 1394 connector (FireWire connector, iLink connector, DV connector) on the computer itself. Could other applications or resident software (such as an anti-virus program) be running? Installation may not occur correctly if other programs are running. Be sure to close all other programs before installing. 49

Are you attempting to install from a networked CD-ROM drive? You cannot install from a networked CD-ROM drive. Could the CD-ROM or the lens of your CD-ROM drive be dirty? If the CD-ROM or the lens of your CD-ROM drive are dirty, the installer may not work correctly. Use a commercially available CD cleaner or lens cleaner to clean the CD-ROM and/or lens. Are the power conservation settings of your computer turned off? If power conservation settings are turned on for your computer, disable these settings. (For details on how to disable them, refer to the owners manual of your computer.) Is there enough free space on your hard disk? Delete unneeded files to increase the amount of free space. After deleting the file(s), empty the recycling bin. Is the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector enabled on your computer? Refer to the owners manual for your computer, and verify that the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector of your computer is enabled. The driver cannot be installed unless the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector is enabled. Does your computer or FireWire (IEEE 1394) repeater hub have a sufficient power supply? If you are using bus power, the FA-66 cannot be connected if insufficient power is being supplied to it. Check whether the following cases might apply. If you are using a notebook computer running on its battery, operation may be unstable with some computers. If this is the case, connect your computer to its AC adaptor. The power conservation mode of your computer may be limiting the power it supplies to the FireWire (IEEE 1394) connector. Re-examine the settings of your computer. The FA-66 cannot be used with some bus-powered repeater hubs (hubs that do not have their own power supply). Use a self-powered hub (a repeater hub that has its own power supply). Does your computer meet the FireWire (IEEE 1394) specification? Operation may be unstable if you are using a computer that does not electrically meet the FireWire (IEEE 1394) specification. If so, you may be able to solve the problem by connecting a FireWire (IEEE 1394) repeater hub that has its own power supply. 54

Cant record from a digital connection
When capturing audio data from a CD or MD into your computer, is the digital input switch on? Turn on the digital input switch. Does the sample rate of your software match the sample rate of the digital audio device connected to the digital in connector? Set the sample rate to the same setting. If you switch the FA-66s sample rate, you must turn the power of the FA-66 off, then on again to get the setting to take effect.
Cant play/record 24-bit audio data
Does your software support 24-bit audio data? You will need to use software that supports 24-bit audio data. Is your software set to record/play 24-bit audio data? Set your software to 24-bit. 55

Noise or pops are heard when recording/ playing on your computer
Noise is heard during audio playback Pops/clicks occur during audio playback Noise is heard in the recorded sound
In Windows, did you make the setting described in Giving priority to background services? In order to ensure that audio/MIDI processing occurs smoothly, make the setting described in Giving priority to background services. ( Giving priority to background services (p. 29)) In Macintosh, check the Energy Saver settings. In the Mac OS System Setup, set Energy Saver as follows.


Click the Sleep tab. Set Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for: to Never. Set Put the display to sleep when the computer is inactive for: to Never.


Click the Options tab. If there is a Processor Performance setting, set it to Highest. 56

In Windows, Power Management settings in the Control Panel may cause clicks or pops to occur in the audio playback. The power management properties that appear when you double-click Power Management will differ depending on your computer system.

All output from the CFA321-01 Mac computer should come from the Edirol audio device stored on the left. This will allow you to hear sound from the computer through the headphones that are connected to the Edirol device, as well as the external speakers over the keyboard. Headphone Output 1. Log into the CFA321-01 Mac and open System Preferences by clicking on the Blue Apple on the top left and selecting System Preferences.
2. In the System Preferences window, click on the icon labeled Sound.
3. In the Sound window, click on the Output tab. Select EDIROL FA-66 (0662) Firewire from the list of output devices. This ensures that all sound coming out from the computer is projected through the Edirol device.
You can test this result by pressing the Volume Control buttons on the Keyboard. You should be able to hear the clicking sounds through the Edirol Headphones.
CFA Multimedia Studio Instruction Manual External Speaker Output 1. Follow Steps 1-3 in the Headphone Output section. 2. On the Mackie Mixer, make sure all channel levels are down and that all buttons are not pressed. Push down the two L-R buttons for Channels 7 and 8 labeled Edirol. This enables the Edirol Left and Right Audio channels to feed into the Mackie Mixer. 3. Raise the levels of Channels 7 and 8 to about of the way up. Raising the level too high will result in audio clipping, and moving it too low will result in low audio. 4. Raise the Main L-R Mix level (the last slider on the right) to about the way up. This determines the amount of sound coming from the Edirol that will be projected through the External Speakers.
You can test the audio output by pushing the Volume Control buttons on the CFA321-01 Mac Keyboard. You should be able to hear the clicking sounds through both the Edirol Headphones and the External Speakers.
Note: There is another knob on the mixer labeled Monitor Spk. This controls the volume of the External Speakers and you should keep it at the unity (up) position.


The 321 Sound Room utilizes the AKG414 Sound Room Mic as its primary recording microphone. This is a large diaphragm condenser microphone and is the best choice for voice recordings.
