Download/install the drivers from roland/edirol site for PC. For Mac, its plug and play. Just select the edirol in the audio options.

When using Firewire bus to power the sound card my


It's likely that the FireWire bus isn't meeting the power needs of your card. Just use the external supply since there isn't too much you can do.

Dear Sir, My name is JOY and basically I am an arranger and programmer. At present , I am using EDIROL FA-66 soundcard for my programming. I think this sound card is superb and i have no problem...


I need to know first of all what your setup is for output (you may not hear the low frequencies if you aren't running a sub, or if the sub woofer isn't configured correctly. Also check all of your output settings, including those settings for file conversions within each software used for these tracks. Another thing to keep in mind that you may also need to reinstall or update your soundcard drivers.

*Double check all your inputs/outputs to see that they are secure.
*Look in the control panel(s) and make sure that the equalizer settings are correct as well. It's common to experience settings to be muted in windows. You may have also blown your sub channel as well, depending on any amps/equipment you use (if you even do).

My FA-66 is connected to my MacBook Pro via Firewire. When I plug a secondary display in, it makes lots of extraneous noise, even worse if the PSU is not connected to the MacBook Pro. What is causing this?


Is the noise a constant hum? If it is such a noise, I suspect a faulty or poor performing power supply. Check the power supply that powers Edirol sound card for any improper ground. Another custom made power supply which is properly regulated (voltage) and at a higher ampere rate would be an idea to consider. I think your main issue is grounding because you say the case become worse when the MacBook PSU is not there. Because, you are loosing a ground path when you remove the PSU. Then it solely depends on the Edirol ground path. If that path not a good source of ground, there lies your problem.

Problem with stereo output on Edirol FA-66


Possibly, your adapter of small to big is not a stereo adapter. Seems like a mono adapter.

When I run my Akai MPC 1000 into my Edirol FA-66 get a loud hum through my monitors that does not pick up in the recording. I've tried switching around which power points that my MacBook, monitors and MPC...


its probably a ground loop (i think thats what it's called)
sometimes if a number of sound devices like monitors/computer/soundcard are connected
with the same ground, this problem occurs.

so maybe try use a ground-less electricity wire on the mpc, or the laptop. or both.
good luck.

How do i get my FA-66 to work via firewire?? please help!!!!!!!


u're probably trying to connect it with a 4 to 6 pins firewire cable to your laptop right?
if so, the laptop firewire connection is usually the small type (4 pins). this kind
of connection does not give Power to the firewire device.
u can buy a pcmcia card with 6pin firewire connections and usa a 6 to 6 firewire cable
and that will work. i hope. :)
