OWNER'S MANUAL
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the Roland XV-3080.
Before using this unit, carefully read the sections entitled: "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUC-
TIONS" (p. 2), "USING THE UNIT SAFELY" (p. 3), and "IMPORTANT NOTES" (p. 8). These
sections provide important information concerning the proper operation of the unit. Addi-
tionally, in order to feel assured that you have gained a good grasp of every feature provided
by your new unit, Owner's Manual and Quick Start should be read in its entirety. The manual

Notation Used in This Owner's Manual
To make operation procedures easy to understand, the following notation system is
adopted:
Characters and numbers in square brackets [ ] indicate buttons on the front panel. For
example, [PATCH] represents the PATCH button and [ENTER] the ENTER button.
An asterisk (*) at the beginning of a paragraph indicates a note or precaution.
(p. **) refers to pages within the manual.
* The display screens printed in this owner's manual are based on the factory settings.
