Zoom has now combined a versatile live effects guitar processor with an easy-to-use drum machine, guitar-intensive riff sampler and 74 new effects in the new 707II.
The 707II's onboard drum machine includes 60 preset rhythm patterns featuring high-quality PCM sounds. The internal sampler lets players record sounds for learning riffs and phrases. Playback speed can be reduced with or without affecting pitch and storage is available via a SmartMedia card.
The system also includes 74 Zoom guitar effects (10 simultaneously) including a variety of distortions, reverbs, delays, modulation effects and more. Other features include Amp tone simulation and 120 patch memory locations (60 user and 60 preset).
Designed for performance, the system features analog edit knobs for easy adjustment of effect parameters in real time. They can also be used as "Instant Edit" in Play mode for Distortion, Modulation and Reverb programs.
A large LED display clearly shows all critical information on dark stages and other low light situations. The 707II's built-in expression pedal controls volume, wah and other effect parameters. Simple up/down footswitch operation allows easy access to patches and sampling functions.
For convenience, the unit can be powered by four AA batteries or an optional AC adaptor. The new 707II has an MSRP of $259.99.
