Usage Precautions
• Electrical interference
For safety considerations, the 707II has been designed to
provide maximum protection against the emission of
electromagnetic radiation from inside the device, and
protection from external interference. However, equipment
that is very susceptible to interference or that emits powerful
electromagnetic waves should not be placed near the 707II,
as the possibility of interference cannot be ruled out entirely.
With any type of digital control device, the 707II included,
electromagnetic interference can cause malfunctioning and
can corrupt or destroy data. Care should be taken to
minimize the risk of damage.
• Cleaning
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the 707II. If necessary, slightly
moisten the cloth. Do not use abrasive cleanser, wax, or
solvents (such as paint thinner or cleaning alcohol), since
these may dull the finish or damage the surface.
Please keep this manual in a convenient place
for future reference.
Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the ZOOM 707II GUITAR (subsequently referred to as "the 707II").
The 707II is a sophisticated multi-effect processor for guitar with the following attractive features.
Versatile effects
The Variable Architecture Modeling System(VAMS) adapts the internal configuration of the unit to
achieve exactly the desired sound. The wide range of choices includes distortion effects, modulation
effects such as chorus and flanger, reverb and delay effects, as well as a booster and cabinet
simulator. A total of 74 effects are available.
●
120 great sounding patches
Effect module setting combinations can be stored as patches. The 707II offers 60 patches which can
be freely modified by the user, plus 60 preset patches. These settings will let you make great music
straight away.
●
Full complement of distortion effects
33 distortion type effects not only recreate the characteristics of famous guitar amps but also
duplicate the sound and operation of renowned compact effects and pedals. Dedicated knobs and
keys assure quick and easy operation.
●
Designed for use on stage
The 707II can be powered from an AC adapter or batteries. With one set of alkaline batteries, the
unit will operate continuously for up to 11 hours. The large display showing patch names, and the
built-in expression pedal for fine-tuning the sound are great for live performances.
●
Knobs provide direct editing feel
Various aspects (effect parameters) that control the sound of a module can be directly modified with
three handy knobs. The Easy Edit feature lets you tweak the knobs for adjusting parameters also
during play. Of course, you can store the results in your own patch.
●
Sampling feature for recording
A guitar phrase or the signal from an input source such as a CD player can be sampled for up to 6
seconds and stored in the internal memory. When using a 16 MB SmartMedia card, you can record
up to 60 samples or 4 minutes of music. A recorded sample can even be played back at a slower
speed without altering the pitch. This is a great tool for enhancing a live performance or for copying
a lick or fast-played phrase.
●
SmartMedia card allows unlimited number of patches and samples
Patches and samples can be stored on separately available SmartMedia cards (up to 60 patches x 5
groups / 60 samples per card). Stored data can be read back into the unit at any time. This gives you
unlimited potential for building a library of patches and samples.
●
Integrated rhythm function
60 built-in rhythm patterns using natural-sounding PCM sources are available, which is great for
practice or a quick jam session.
●
Link samples, rhythm, pedal settings to patches
The selection of rhythm patterns and samples can be stored for each patch individually, allowing
synchronized operation when switching patches. Even the pedal adjustment range can be memorized
for a patch.

In order to get the most out of this sophisticated product, please read this manual carefully before
use.
We recommend that you keep the manual at hand for future reference.

Patches, groups and banks
A combination of 707II effects, each with
distinct parameter settings, is called a patch.
Patches are organized in banks (A - F, 0 - 5)
and patch numbers (0 - 9). It is also possible
to assign a name of up to six characters to a
patch.
The patches of the 707II are stored in two
different groups: the USER group (banks A
- F) for read-and-write patches that can be
freely overwritten by the user, and the
PRESET group (0 - 5) for read-only patches
that cannot be changed by the user. There
are 60 patches in each group, resulting in a
total of 120 patches.

Using the Sampler Function
The 707II incorporates a sampler function that allows recording the input signal in the internal
memory or on a SmartMedia card.
This can be used to record a phrase from the guitar connected to the [INPUT] jack or the
sound from an external source such as a CD player connected to the [AUX IN] jack. When
using the internal memory, the maximum recording duration is 6 seconds (1 sample). When
using a 16 MB SmartMedia card, up to 4 minutes (maximum 60 samples) can be recorded. A
recorded phrase can also be played at slower speed without changing the pitch. This is
convenient to copy a fast-played phrase from a CD.
For playing a sample, you can choose between two modes: "one-shot playback" where the
sampled phrase is played once when you operate a key or pedal, and "loop playback", where
the sampled phrase continues to play until stopped.
1.
When wishing to use a SmartMedia
card, turn power to the 707II off,
insert the SmartMedia card into the
card slot, and then turn power on
again. (For information on inserting a
SmartMedia card, see p. 6.)
can also be turned on by pushing the pedal all
the way down (→ p.24).
The subsequent steps are slightly different,
depending on whether a SmartMedia card is
inserted or not.

Changing the Sound of a Patch (Edit Mode)
The edit mode allows you to freely alter the parameters that make up a patch, so that you
can create your own patches. This section describes how to edit patches and how to store
edited patches.
Patch Configuration
Each patch of the 707II consists of several effects (effect modules), as shown in the
illustration below. A patch is a combination of modules, each with their distinct parameter
settings.
BOOSTER
INPUT
ISO/COMP
DRIVE
EQ
ZNR
CABINET
MODULATION
DLY/REV
OUTPUT
Within each module, there are several different but related effects which are called effect types. For
example, the MODULATION module comprises effect types such as CHORUS, PHASER, and WAH.
The elements that determine the sound of a patch are called effect parameters. Each module has several
effect parameters, whose value can be adjusted with the parameter knobs 1 – 3, the [DRIVE] knob,
[DRIVE VARIATION] key, etc.
N OTE
Also within the same module, different effect types will have different parameters.

●
SAMPLER
The sampler function is switched on/off by the
pedal. Pushing the pedal all the way down
toggles between sampler on ([PEDAL] LED lit)
and sampler off ([PEDAL] LED flashed).
Other Functions
Also if a module is currently off, selecting it
with the [PEDAL] key will cause its [PEDAL]
LED to light and the module will temporarily
come on. If a patch is stored in this condition,
the module will be stored as ON.
The actual parameter that is controlled by the

Use parameter knobs 2 and 3 to set
the PDLMIN value (when pedal is fully
raised) and PDLMAX value (when
pedal is fully lowered). The setting
range for both values is 0 – 10.
When you operate parameter knob 2, the
indication "PDLMIN" appears on the display.
When you operate parameter knob 3, the
indication "PDLMAX" appears on the display.
The 0 – 10 value is shown on the [BANK/

Setting PDLMIN or PDLMAX to 0 means that
the parameter assigned to the pedal will be at
the minimum value. Setting PDLMIN or
PDLMAX to 10 means that the parameter
assigned to the pedal will be at the maximum
value.
When the 707II is in the default condition,
PDLMIN is set to 0 and PDLMAX is set to 10.
As the pedal is depressed, the parameter value
gradually increases from minimum to

Troubleshooting
■ No sound, or very low volume
• Is the correct AC adapter connected, and the power
switch set to ON?
Refer to "Getting Connected" on page 7 and turn the
power on.
• Are [INPUT] jack and [OUTPUT/PHONES] jack
connected correctly to the instrument and amplifier?
Refer to "Getting Connected" on page 7 and establish
correct connections. Check volume settings at
instrument and amplifier.
■ High noise levels
• Adjust ZNR parameter. If problem persists, try
reducing GAIN.
• If BOOSTER or COMP/ISOLATOR module is used,
lower GAIN parameter of DRIVE module.
■ Cannot play rhythm pattern or volume is
very low
• Is rhythm volume set to low value?
Adjust parameter knob 3 to obtain suitable volume.
• Is the shielded cable defective?
Try replacing the cable.
• Is 707II set to mute condition?
Cancel the mute condition.
• Is [OUTPUT] knob turned down?
■ Expression pedal on/off switching does not
work properly.
• Try the procedure described in "Adjusting the
Expression Pedal" on page 25.
Set knob to suitable position.
• Is expression pedal raised?
For some patches, the expression pedal controls the
volume. Set it to a suitable position.
■ Cannot record from [AUX IN] jack
Is input source set to "GT"? Set it to "AUX".
■ Sound is unnaturally distorted
• Adjust level and gain parameters of modules.
• Set BOOSTER or COMP/ISOLATOR to OFF.
• When a guitar with high output is used with the
above effects, unwanted distortion may occur
depending on DRIVE module effect type.
■ SmartMedia card cannot be used
• Is [SMART MEDIA] LED lit?
Turn unit off and check whether SmartMedia card is
inserted properly.
• Is correct SmartMedia card used?
The 707II can use SmartMedia cards with a capacity
from 16 to 128 MB (designed for 3.3V).
• Has SmartMedia card been formatted?
Be sure to format the SmartMedia card in the 707II
before use, as described on page 31.
