View Full Version : Anyone here powering a Pitchfactor w/a PP2+?
Just wondering if it's working and HOW it's working. Trying to get some straight answers, I'm reading all sorts of conflicting info. Example---Do you have to use the 5 & 6 outputs with the red barrel connector or just one? Isn't the extra current going to fry the Pfactor??? Etc and so forth.....

Im powering both a Timefactor and a Pitchfactor with a PPII and everything seems to be working just fine.

I was running 8+ pedals with the PPII with the Pitchfactor plugged into the AC jack using its own power supply with no problems. I know this may not help, but I wanted to mention it because I was also able to fit the PF power supply under my Pedaltrain2.

I called Voodoo about this. They told me that they have a new pedal POWER brick coming out to accomodate the Eventide's safely. As it is, they do not gurantee that it will always work safely and consistently.
For keeping my Eventide pedals (all 3), I'll just put all three wall warts on the regular AC multistrip (or use the AC on the rear of the PP2+. Until their new product comes out. Right now, I love my PP2+, which runs it all, including Catalinbread pedals that I run on 18V.
I'm using a PT-2 as a board, already have an M9 on it. I want to put my Pfactor on there as well, may get one of those splitter power plugs so I can access the courtesy outlet for the M9 & Pfactor on the PP2+.
Which outputs are you plugging your factors into? The normal 9V ones or the other higher voltage ones (5 & 6). And some folks say that they put the dipswitch on the higher voltage?!? I don't know enough about this stuff, don't want to fry anything....

There is another thread describing the cables and outputs to use, or check buyanalogman.com eventide pages for that info. I think you need to use the two line6 outputs for the extra current (a pedal will draw what it needs in CURRENT, can't draw too much) and the rev pola larger cable.
here is the info from my website
You need to use the two LINE6 outputs, with a parallel Y-Cable combining them both. Then plug the voodoo labs LINE6 style reverse polarity (red) cable between the Y cable and Eventide and you have 9V at 400mA+ which should work fine. The Y cable and reverse polarity cable are available in our accessories area, voodoo labs cables section. Or check out the new Voodoo Labs ISO-5 power supply!! (http://www.buyanalogman.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=VoodooPPISO5) which can power this pedal and many more.
So I'm assuming 5 & 6 are running normal voltage (not the other position where they're running higher) , using the Y ups the mA?
