jacks
You should always turn off the power to the B1/B1X
and all other equipment before connecting or
disconnecting any cables. Also make sure to disconnect
all connection cables and the power cord before moving
the B1/B1X.
Alterations
Warning
Never open the case of the B1/B1X or attempt to
modify the product in any way since this can result in
damage to the unit.
[AC adapter operation]
• Be sure to use only an AC adapter which supplies 9 V DC,
300 mA and is equipped with a "center minus" plug
(Zoom AD-0006). The use of an adapter other than the
specified type may damage the unit and pose a safety
hazard.
• Connect the AC adapter only to an AC outlet that supplies
the rated voltage required by the adapter.
• When disconnecting the AC adapter from the AC outlet,
always grasp the adapter itself and do not pull at the cable.
• During lightning or when not using the unit for an
extended period, disconnect the AC adapter from the AC
outlet.
[Battery operation]
• Use four conventional IEC R6 (size AA) batteries
(alkaline).
• The B1/B1X cannot be used for recharging.
• Pay close attention to the labelling of the battery to make
sure you choose the correct type.
• When not using the unit for an extended period, remove
the batteries from the unit.
• If battery leakage has occurred, wipe the battery
compartment and the battery terminals carefully to
remove all remnants of battery fluid.
• While using the unit, the battery compartment cover
should be closed.
Environment
Warning
To prevent the risk of fire, electric shock or
malfunction, avoid using your B1/B1X in environments
where it will be exposed to:
• Extreme temperatures
• Heat sources such as radiators or stoves
• High humidity or moisture
2
Volume
Caution
This section explains some important terms that are used throughout the B1/B1X documentation.
Do not use the B1/B1X at a loud volume for a long time
since this can cause hearing impairment.
Usage Precautions
Electrical interference
For safety considerations, the B1/B1X 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 B1/B1X,
as the possibility of interference cannot be ruled out entirely.
With any type of digital control device, the B1/B1X included,
electromagnetic interference can cause malfunctioning and can
corrupt or destroy data. Care should be taken to minimize the
risk of damage.
COMP/LIMIT EFX
DRIVE
EQ
ZNR AMP MODULATION/DELAY REVERB/DELAY
■ Effect module
As shown in the illustration above, the B1/B1X can
be thought of as a combination of several single
effects. Each such effect is referred to as an effect
module. In addition to modules such as DRIVE and
MODULATION/DELAY, the B1/B1X also provides
a module for noise reduction and amp simulation
(ZNR/AMP). Parameters such as effect intensity can
be adjusted for each module individually, and
modules can be switched on and off.
■ Effect type
Some effect modules have several different effects
which are referred to as effect types. For example,
the MODULATION/DELAY module comprises
chorus, flanger, and other effect types. Only one of
these can be selected at a time.
■ Effect parameter
All effect modules have various parameters that can
be adjusted. These are called effect parameters.
When thinking of an effect module as a compact
effect, the parameters change the tone and effect
intensity similar to the knobs on the device.
■ Patch
In the B1/B1X, effect module combinations are
stored and called up in units referred to as patches.
A patch comprises information about the on/off
status of each effect module, about the effect type
OUT
used in each module, and about effect parameter
settings. The internal memory of the B1/B1X can
store up to 80 patches.
■ Bank and area
A group of ten patches is called a bank. The
memory of the B1/B1X comprises a total of eight
banks, labelled with letters A to d and numbers 0 to
3. Banks A – d are the user area which allows read/
write. 0 – 3 form the preset area of read-only
patches.
The patches within each

■ Mode
The internal status of the B1/B1X is referred to as
the operation mode. In "play mode" you can select
patches and use them for playing your instrument.
In "edit mode" you can modify the effects, and there
is also a "rhythm mode" in which you can make
settings for the rhythm function. The module
selector serves for switching between these three
modes.

Using the Tuner
Using the Tuner
The B1/B1X incorporates an auto-chromatic tuner. To use the tuner function, the built-in effects must be
bypassed (temporarily turned off) or muted (original sound and effect sound turned off).
Adjusting the reference pitch of the tuner
If required, you can fine-adjust the reference pitch of the B1/B1X tuner.
Turn the [VALUE] knob.
When you turn the [VALUE] knob in the
bypass/mute condition, the current reference pitch
is shown for a time on the display. The default
setting is 40 (center A = 440 Hz).
Switch to bypass or mute

While the reference pitch is shown, turn
the [VALUE] knob to adjust the value in
the range from 35 - 45 (center A = 435 to
445 Hz).
Setting the B1/B1X to the mute state
In play mode or rhythm mode (→ p. 10),
press both [W]/[Q] foot switches
together and hold for at least 1 second.
NOTE
MT

The bypass or mute condition cannot be
activated when the unit is in edit mode.
Shortly after you release the [VALUE] knob, the
display indication will revert to the previous
condition.
Patch change at bypass/mute
When you press both [Q]/[W] foot switches together while
playing your instrument, the sound may change momentarily
just before the bypass/mute condition is activated. This is
because the B1/B1X switches to the next higher or lower
patch when one of the foot switches is pressed slightly
earlier. (When you cancel the bypass/mute condition, the
original patch number will be active again.)
This behavior is not a defect. It is due to the very high speed
at which the B1/B1X responds to patch switching. To
prevent the sound change caused by the above condition,
do not produce sound with your instrument until the
bypass/mute condition is fully established.
NOTE
Return to play mode
Press one of the [W]/[Q] foot switches.

Using a Foot Switch or Pedal
Changing the Way Patches Are Called Up
In normal operation, changing a patch in play mode of the B1/B1X will be active immediately. This
means that the sound changes straight away when you make the selection.
In some cases, such as when the new patch is at a memory location not adjacent to the current one, this
method may not be ideal, because the sound will change in various ways as you switch through the
patches. In such a case, you may want to change the patch selection method to "pre-select". In this mode,
you first select the patch to use next, and then perform an additional step to activate the patch.
To change B1/B1X operation to pre-select, perform the following steps.
1.
Turn power to the B1/B1X on while
holding down the [Q] foot switch.
The indication "PrE-SElEct" scrolls on the
display during startup.
2.
In play mode, use the [W]/[Q] foot
switches to specify the patch to use
next.
You can use the [BANK UP•TAP] key or a foot
switch (FS01) connected to the [CONTROL IN]
jack to switch only the bank (The B1X does not
support use of a foot switch.)
The new bank or patch number specified by the
above step flashes on the display. The sound
does not change yet.
3.
When you have specified the patch to
use, press both [W]/[Q] foot
switches together.
The patch change is accepted, the display
changes from flashing to permanently lit, and the
sound changes.
