Explained here is the procedure to play "2-tone chime" of the prerecorded audio files through the front key
operation.
Note
To play other prerecorded audio files than the 8 files listed above, programs need be created on the EV-700
Setting software.
(See the separate EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.)
Tip
Phrases 00009 through 00016 are assigned to Program Nos. P009 through P016, respectively, by default.
When you record audio sources in Phrases 00009 through 00016, you can play them without the need for
programming on the EV-700 Setting software.
9.1. Connections
Connect each device as shown below. After inserting the supplied memory card into the Memory card slot A,
connect the power source to the unit, then turn on the amplifier's power.
Use a single core or 2-core shielded cable for connection between the unit and the amplifier.

10. PHRASE AND PROGRAM
The terms "Phrase" and "Program" are used for handling audio sources with the EV-700.
10.1. What is phrase?
Phrase refers to the audio data (WAV file) recorded on the memory card. A single phrase is created by one-time
recording. Up to 32768 pieces of phrase data can be written on the memory card.
"Phrase" used for the EV-700 refers to a WAV file and differs from the Phrase in the general sense.
Despite the name "Phrase," audio data for music and sentences can be recorded as phrases.
10.2. What is Program?
Program consists of the audio data for broadcast created by combining phrases and the program control data
such as program sound volume and playback system. Up to 256 programs can be registered.

Phrase 32768
The Playback order of phrases in a program is referred to as a "Step."
A program is created by using one step or combining 2 or more steps.
One program can contain up to 128 steps of "Phrases" and "Silent phrases*."
In addition, data of broadcasting method, referred to as "Program control data", can be set for individual
programs.
The following types are available for Program control data. See the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual
for details.

10.3. Playing a Program
Playback is executed for each program.
Your desired program can be selected and played through the front key operation or using the EV-700 Setting
software.
In the case of operation by way of Control contact, your desired program can be played by closing the control
contact input terminal corresponding to the program.

Phrase 32768
Tip
Phrases 00001 through 00016 are registered in Program Nos. P001 through P016, respectively, by default.
As audio sources are prerecorded only in Phrases 00001 through 00008, the prerecorded audio file registered
in Phrase 00001 is played when Program 001 (P001) is executed. (See p. 18.)
17
10.4. Factory-Preset Program
• The following 8 audio files in the prerecorded audio files (See p. 104, "PRERECORDED AUDIO FILE LIST.")
are assigned to Program Nos. P001 through P008 by default.
These 8 audio files can be played without the need to create programs using the EV-700 Setting software.
For example, "2-tone chime" registered in Phrase No. 00001 is played when P001 is played.
• Phrase Nos. 00009 through 00016 are assigned to Program Nos. P009 through P016, respectively, although
sound source data are not registered in those phrase numbers.
If sound source data are recorded to Phrase Nos. 00009 through 00016, they can be played without the need
to create program using the EV-700 Setting software as in the case of the prerecorded audio files above.
For example, the data recorded to Phrase No. 00009 is played when P009 is played.
• Playback system is set to Program playback except "P008 Ascending 4-note tone," which is set to Chime
playback. (See p. 66, "PLAYBACK SYSTEMS.")
• When the prerecorded audio files registered to the Phrase Nos. 00001 through 00008 have been deleted
through the front key operation, you can record other audio files to those phrase numbers. In this case, they
can be played without the need to create program using the EV-700 Setting software as is the case described
above. The prerecorded audio files deleted in this method can be registered again from the memory card
using the EV-700 Setting software.

[Outline of Setting and operation]
• First, set the control function to either "Direct" or "Binary." The set control function applies to playback start,
recording start, delete/clear start, and stop activation.
• For the emergency playback start and emergency stop activation, operations are the same no matter which
"Direct" or "Binary" is selected.
• Details of control (Type and operation) can be set for each activated operation.
• Settings and operations related to "Recording start"
· You cannot make an overwrite recording on the existing phrase. When recording a phrase again, be sure
to delete the existing one first.
· Shown below are the numbers of phrases that can be recorded by external activation.
When in Direct mode: 16 phrases (00001 to 00016)
When in Binary mode: 256 phrases (00001 to 00256)
· Recorded phrases are all registered on the Memory card A.

12.2. Inputting Control Signals
12.2.1. Input terminals used for external activation
Apply a make signal to the Contact-activated input terminals and another make signal to the control input
terminals for activating each operation.
Use the Contact-activated input terminals to select a playback program number or the phrase number to be
recorded/deleted.
Use the Control input terminals to select each operation of playback, recording, delete/clear, stop, or emergency
broadcast.
Contact-activated input terminals
Control input terminals in the
Input/output terminal block
12.2.2. Activation by a make signal
To perform external activation, apply a make signal to the Contact-activated/Control input terminals.
The terminal contacts are normally open, and activation is triggered when closed.
ON (Start)
Contact is closed
Contact is open
OFF (Stop)
OFF (Stop)
Notes
• A make signal needs to be kept ON for 50 ms or more.
As it takes about 30 to 50 ms until the unit recognizes a make signal after it has been applied to the unit, the
unit may not work if the closed duration is less than 50 ms.
When 2 or more make signals need be input in sequence, allow at least 50 ms interval between first signal
input and second signal input.
If this interval is shorter than 50 ms, operation may not be performed in correct order.
• Note that the time interval of 30 ms to 50 ms is omitted in the diagrams in this manual.

12.3. Details of the Setting Items
12.3.1. Direct control function and Binary control function
Direct control function:‌Allows operation such as playback of the program number or recording/deletion of the
phrase number corresponding to such terminal when a make signal is applied to any
one of the Contact-activated input terminals 1 through 16.
Binary control function:‌Allows selection of 1 to 256 programs by recognizing the open/closed states of the
Contact-activated input terminals 1 through 8 as 8-binary digits.
[Activation by the Direct control function]
For playback start, each of the Contact-activated input terminals 1 through 16 corresponds to the program
number.

[Activation by the Binary control function]
The Contact-activated input terminals 1 through 8 are regarded as 8 binary digits comprised of "0" and "1" when
assuming the closed state as "1" and the open state as "0."
To start playback, close the Playback control input terminal after designating the target program number, then
the program of the designated number is played. Similarly, to start recording or deletion, close the Recording or
Deletion control terminal after designating the target phrase number, then the phrase of the designated number
is recorded or deleted.
For example, place the Contact-activated input terminals 1 through 8 in the following states.
Contact-activated input terminal

12.3.2. Pulse signal input activation and Level signal input activation
Pulse signal input activation:‌Activates operation when a make signal (Closed time duration: over 50 ms) is
applied to the terminals. Operation stops when it is finished or when a make signal
is applied to the Stop control input.
Level signal input activation:‌Activates operation when a make signal is applied to the terminals, and continues
the operation while the terminals are being closed.
‌Playback is repeated when a closed state is maintained even if playback is finished.

12.3.3. Operation setting for playback start
Three methods are available for the operation settings: Priority setting (FIFO), Priority setting (LIFO), and
Sequential storage playback.
[Playback depending on Priority setting (FIFO) and Priority setting (LIFO)]
The unit operates as shown below depending on the program priority levels when playback is performed by
these two settings.
When the set priority levels are different: A higher-priority program's playback takes precedence
When the set priority levels are the same:‌The unit performs different operations as shown in the table below
depending on which the priority is set to FIFO or LIFO.
When playback of other program
with the same priority level is
started during program playback
FIFO
Cannot accept the playback start of the last-in program.
LIFO
Plays the last-in program.
When playbacks of 2 programs
with the same priority level are
simultaneously started
FIFO
Plays the lower-numbered program.
LIFO
Plays the higher-numbered program.
As for the program priority levels, see p. 81.
The figure below shows operations of the FIFO and LIFO playbacks.
When playback of Program (P002) with the same priority is started during Program (P001) playback:
FIFO playback
P001 start
Contact-activated input
P002 start

(The first activated program playback takes precedence.)

(The last activated program playback takes precedence.)
Program playback
P001
P002 playback
Note
When playback of 2 programs with the same priority level is simultaneously started, playback operation is as
follows.
· FIFO playback: Plays the lower-numbered program.
· LIFO playback: Plays the higher-numbered program.
35
[Sequential storage playback]
The unit memorizes up to 16 contact-activated inputs, then each playback is started in the order of input.
The program playback order has no relation to the program priority level. Programs are played in the order of
the activation signal input.
The figure below shows operations of the Sequential storage playback.

Tip: ‌When 2 or more activation signals are simultaneously input, programs are played in the order of program
number.
12.3.4. Forced stop and spontaneous stop of phrase playback
Forced stop:‌Stops the program currently being played when the Stop control input
terminal is closed.
Spontaneous stop of phrase playback:‌Stops the program after the phrase in it currently being played has
ended when the Stop control input terminal is closed.

13. TYPES OF EMERGENCY BROADCASTS
There are 2 types for the Emergency broadcasts, "Emergency playback" and "R.E.M. (Recording Endless
Message) playback."
Emergency Playback (Prerecorded Playback)
Allows the audio source for emergency playback prepared in advance to be broadcast preferentially in
emergency situations. Priority is given to the emergency playback broadcast even during program playback or
microphone announcement.
Output destination, repeat count, and repeat time can be preset using the EV-700 Setting software.
Audio source preparation and Emergency playback/stop can be made at the EV-700 unit or using the EV-700
Setting software.
This manual describes the method of operations performed at the EV-700 unit.
For the operation method performed using the EV-700 Setting software, see the EV-700 Setting software
instruction manual.
R.E.M. Playback (Instant Recording Playback)
Allows you to make a recording through one-touch operation in the event of an emergency and repeatedly
broadcast the recorded contents immediately after recording.
Recording starts instantly by closing the rear-mounted Emergency recording control input terminals, and the
recorded contents are played repeatedly when the terminals are opened.
Priority is given to the R.E.M. playback broadcast even during program playback or microphone announcement.
Output destination, repeat count, and repeat time can be preset using the EV-700 Setting software.
R.E.M. playback can be performed at the EV-700 unit or using the EV-700 Setting software.
This manual describes the method of operations performed at the EV-700 unit.
For the operation method performed using the EV-700 Setting software, see the EV-700 Setting software
instruction manual.
Note
Emergency playback cannot be made during broadcasts of R.E.M. playback. Likewise, R.E.M. playback cannot
be made during Emergency playback.
Tip
You can start recording for R.E.M. playback again during R.E.M. playback broadcast.
For the priority level settings, see p. 82.

14. EMERGENCY PLAYBACK (FRONT KEY OPERATION)
Explained here is a method of making advance preparation for Emergency broadcast through front key
operation. (Such as recording of audio source for Emergency playback and audio source confirmation)
To make Emergency broadcast in the event of an emergency, use the Control input terminals or the EV-700
Setting software. (See p. 61, "EMERGENCY PLAYBACK (USING THE CONTROL INPUT TERMINALS)."
and the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.)
Before performing each front key operation described below, be sure to set only Switch 2 of the DIP switch on
the front panel to the ON position. In this event, the "EMEr" (EMER) indication appears on the Status display.

16. R.E.M. PLAYBACK
R.E.M. (Recording Endless Message) playback function is a function that allows you to make a recording
through one-touch operation in the event of an emergency and repeatedly broadcast the recorded contents
immediately after recording.
Recording starts instantly by closing the rear-mounted Emergency recording control input terminals, and the
recorded contents are repeatedly played when the terminals are opened.
Output destination, repeat count, and repeat time can be preset using the EV-700 Setting software.

* Prepare separately.
An easily operable momentary
switch (a switch that outputs a
make signal while it is pressed)
is convenient for this use.
Step 1. Press a recording switch.
The "EMEr" (EMER) indication appears on the Status
display. This indication remains ON during R.E.M.
playback.

Step 2. Speak announcements into the microphone while
pressing the switch.
Step 3. Release the switch.
Announcements recorded in Step 2 will be played.
Playback will stop automatically after it is repeated by the
preset number of times.
You can also make a setting so that playback is repeated
until it is stopped manually or by Emergency stop
control input. (See the separate EV-700 Setting software
instruction manual.)
Tips
• Operation from recording to playback can be resumed if the recording switch is pressed once again while
R.E.M. playback is being broadcast or after it is stopped. In this case, the previously recorded contents will
be overwritten.
• Sound during recording of R.E.M. playback is not output (broadcast). It will be broadcast when playback is
started after recording.
• R.E.M. playback is disabled while the Maintenance indicator is lighting when the DIP switch for maintenance
has been set to the ON position.
• See p. 57, "Stopping Emergency Playback." for the method to manually stop R.E.M. playback.
See p. 62, "Stopping Emergency Playback." for the method to stop R.E.M. playback by way of the
Emergency stop control input.
• R.E.M. playback can be made using the sound source of the Line input instead of that of Microphone input.
When both the microphone and line inputs are active, the input having higher broadcast priority is recorded.
64
16.2. Operation and Setting at the Time of Emergency Broadcast
• When the emergency broadcast is initiated, the program playback in operation is stopped, allowing the
emergency broadcast to take precedence.
• The EV-700 returns to the Lock mode after the emergency broadcast is stopped.
• Emergency broadcast is disabled while the Maintenance indicator is lighting. (Except when making emergency
playback through the front panel operation)

It is possible to assign Priority level so that the important contents can be preferentially played and broadcast.
There are 2 priority levels, Broadcast priority level and Program priority level.
Set Broadcast priority levels among normal broadcast (broadcast of memory card audio sources), microphone
announcement, and line input broadcast considering which broadcast takes precedence over which broadcast.
(See p. 82, "Broadcast Priority Level.")
Program priority level can be set for each program and to any one of levels between "2" (high priority level) and
"8" (low priority level).
Emergency playback and R.E.M. playback are fixed to Priority level 1 (the highest priority), which cannot be
changed.
Note
See the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual for details.

22. EXTERNAL INPUT BROADCAST
22.1. Outline
Besides the audio sources recorded on the memory card, audio signals entered to the front-mounted microphone
input and those entered to the front-mounted and rear-mounted line inputs can be broadcast from the Line
outputs 1 and 2.
One of the memory card audio source, microphone input signal, or line input signal can be broadcast depending
on the preset priority level.
22.2. Broadcast Priority Level
Notes
• Broadcast priority level differs from the priority level that can be set for each program. (See p. 81, "PRIORITY
LEVEL SETTINGS.")
• To make the microphone broadcast or line input broadcast, change the menu mode to Lock mode. If the EV700 is placed in a mode other than Lock mode, the normal broadcast takes precedence regardless of the
setting contents.
Broadcast priority level can be set among the normal broadcast, microphone broadcast, and line input
broadcast. (For the setting procedures, read the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.)
Priority level can be selected from "1," "2," "3," or "OFF" with "1" being the highest priority while "3" the lowest
priority. If set to OFF, such broadcast is not output.
It is not possible to assign the same priority level.
The table below shows the factory default settings.

[Operation by the factory default setting]
• When there is a microphone input during normal broadcast
Normal broadcast is interrupted and the microphone broadcast takes precedence.
The memory card audio sources continue being played while the microphone broadcast is being made.
The normal broadcast will resume after about 5 seconds of silence if the playback of memory card audio
sources still continues when the microphone broadcast ends.

22.3. Making External Input Broadcast
Notes
• Adjust the output level of the microphone input or line input before broadcasting. When signals enter the
microphone input or line input, it is judged that there are input signals if those levels are high enough to make
the level meter flash.
• During recording, audio signals are output only from the headphone output terminal but not from the Line
output 1 nor Line output 2.
Tips
• Adjust the sound volume of the microphone input and line input with each corresponding input volume control
only.
• Signals entered to the front-mounted and rear-mounted Line input terminals are internally mixed and output.
22.3.1. Making the microphone broadcast
Separately prepare a dynamic microphone with ON/OFF switch meeting the following EV-700's input
specifications.
Microphone input specifications: −55 dB (0 dB = 1 V), 600 Ω, unbalanced, phone jack

Note
Depending on the priority level setting, the line input broadcast may be interrupted if the higher-priority broadcast
is initiated during broadcast.
In this case, check the broadcast priority level setting. (See the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.)
Tips
• Stereo input signals, if entered, are converted into monaural signals after the left and right channel signals
are internally mixed.
• Signals entered to the Line input terminal and those entered to the Line input terminals in the rear-mounted
block terminal are internally mixed.

23. BROADCAST SOUND VOLUME
23.1. Sound Volume of Normal Broadcast and Emergency Broadcast
Sound volume of the normal broadcast and the emergency broadcast is determined by the program sound
volume, whole sound volume, and Automatic gain control (AGC).
Use the EV-700 Setting software to perform the program sound volume setting, whole sound volume setting,
and ON/OFF setting of the Automatic gain control (AGC).
For each setting method, see the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.
23.1.1. Program sound volume
Program sound volume is the sound volume that can be set to each program, the emergency playback, and the
R.E.M. playback. It can be set in 11 increments. Its initial setting is "8."

Tip: Each dB value represents the ratio given with reference to the sound volume of the audio source data.
23.1.2. Whole sound volume
Whole sound volume is the overall sound volume for each program, the emergency playback, and the R.E.M.
playback. It can be set in 1-dB units in the range of −60 to 0 dB. Its initial setting is "−6 dB."
Tip
Whole sound volume can also be set through operation at the EV-700. (See p. 73, "Adjusting the Whole
Sound Volume (Use Switch 1).")
23.1.3. ‌Total sound volume (refers to the sum of the program sound volume and the whole sound volume)
If the program sound volume and the whole sound volume have been set, the total sound volume is determined
in the range of −60 to 0 dB based on them, and broadcast is made with this total sound volume.
• If the sum of the program sound volume and the whole sound volume is between −60 and 0 dB, such
value is the total sound volume.
• If the sum of the program sound volume and the whole sound volume is less than −60 dB, "−60 dB" is the
total sound volume.
• If the sum of the program sound volume and the whole sound volume exceeds 0 dB, "0 dB" is the total
sound volume.
Tip
When the total sound volume is −6 dB, a signal of 0 dB* is output from the line output.
* 0 dB = 1 V
23.1.4. Automatic gain control (AGC)
Automatic gain control (AGC) functions to adjust the sound volume at playback as close to the set value
(reference level) as possible.
Broadcasts can be made by suppressing the variation in the reproduced sound volume from a small level to a
large level.
ON/OFF setting can be made individually for all programs including the emergency playback and the R.E.M.
playback.
Tips
• The reference level for the Automatic gain control (AGC) is determined by the total sound volume (the sum of
the program sound volume and the whole sound volume).
Playback sound volume becomes large when it is smaller than the reference level, and becomes small when
it is larger than the reference level.
• When the program sound volume or the whole sound volume is changed, the reference level of the Automatic
gain control (AGC) changes, thereby varying the broadcast volume level.
• When using the Automatic gain control (AGS), it is recommended that total sound volume level be set in the
range of −30 to 0 dB.
85
23.2. Sound Volume of the Microphone Broadcast and the Line Input Broadcast
Adjust the recording volume and broadcast volume of the Microphone broadcast and Line input broadcast with
each corresponding input volume control. (See p. 22, "Recording to Phrase." and p. 83, "Making External
Input Broadcast.")
Tip
Sound volume of the Microphone broadcast and the Line input broadcast are not affected by the Program
sound volume, whole sound volume, and AGC.
24. DELAY TIME
Set the delay time when it takes too long time to start up an amplifier or external device, causing the head
cutting of the playback content.
The delay time from the program playback startup until audio signal playback actually begins can be set in the
range of 0 to 99 seconds in 1-second units.
For the setting procedures, read the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.
Tips
• The program playback busy signal is output even during delay time.
• Delay time setting applies to all programs including the emergency playback and the R.E.M. playback except
the case that the playback system is set for Chime playback.
• Delay time is factory-preset to 2 seconds.
25. CONTROL OUTPUT (BUSY SIGNAL)
25.1. What is Busy Signal?
A make contact control output (busy signal) can be output from the Contact control output terminal during
operation of the unit such as program playback in progress.
Using the EV-700 Setting software, it is possible to set what type of busy signal is output from which channel of
the contact control output terminals 1 to 8 when the device performs the following operations.
For the details, read the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual.

• Program playback will not stop when it is started by Level signal input activation.
• To stop recording through the front panel operation while in Lock mode, press the menu key to cancel Lock
mode, then the Start/Stop key whether or not the Quick stop function is set.
88
28. BACKUP FUNCTION
Backup function allows the unit's operation to be maintained without interruption by switching the operating
Memory card A to the backup Memory card B if the Memory card A fails due to an error like read error.
Backup function ON/OFF setting can be made using the EV-700 Setting software.
The unit operates using the Memory card A only when the backup function is set to OFF. When the backup
function is set to ON, note that a memory card on which all the Memory card A data are recorded needs be
inserted into the Memory card slot B.
Therefore, be sure to make a backup copy of the Memory card A to the Memory card B in advance when
wishing to use this function. (See p. 75.)
By comparing both data on the Memory cards A and B using the EV-700 Setting software, you can check
whether they are identical or not.
See the EV-700 Setting software instruction manual for details.
Note
Even if an error occurs on the Memory card B during operation using the Memory card B, the unit's operation
will not automatically switch back to the operation using Memory card A. After removing the cause of the error
on the Memory card A, be sure to switch to the operation by hand.
28.1. Enabling the Backup function
Step 1. Insert the memory card (accessory) containing audio data into the Memory card Slot A.
Step 2. Insert another memory card (option) into the Memory card Slot B.
Step 3. Make a backup copy of the Memory card A to the Memory card B.
