The Eventide power supply doesn't fit under my Pedaltrain 2. Grrrrrr........
Not that I don't believe you but why not?
Yes you can, but it is the only thing that can be run on it...AND you must use one of the reverse polarity adapter ends like they make for line 6 pedals.
That's more like it! I can do that. Thanks. :AOK
glad i read this. thanks for the thread telewacker!
eventide support and people on their message board say no.
You see, while the one spot can deliver about 1700mA (I believe), it isn't what you would call "regulated." And those 1700mA are what they would consider the max, so while the 1200mA may appear to be well within this range, the 1Spot is not guaranteed to even deliver this much current at all times.
When powering a fancy/pricey piece of equipment, try not to skimp on the power adapters. Especially if you are playing live in a place where everyone is already plugging into the same outlet.
Understood. However the power supply is just too big, so I have a dedicated One Spot in there now and it's working fine. We'll see what happens.
You may be able to find another small high amperage 9v wall wart that is regulated too.
I would like to think this is the case, but I will assume that you mean that it will supply current up to its maximum 1700mA correct?
Otherwise I may make the silly assumption that you are telling the that I could power my Damage Control Timeline (2A @ 9V).
All I can say is: I´ve been running my Timefactor with a OneSpot+L6-Converter for more than a month or so, gigged with it and it´s still going strong. No hum, no hiss, same effect quality.
Does Eventide say "no" or "we don´t recommend it"? I totally understand that companies are not willing to recommend the product of another company. They were not involved in the making of that product and thus cannot assure 100% that there will be no damaged caused by that item. Always safer for them to not recommend it...
I've been running the Timefactor with a dedicated 1-spot + adapter for months now with good sound and functioning. I got noise when daisy chaining the TF, so I have a second 1-spot to power my other pedals.
This is the correct answer.
I have been doing it this way for 6+ months.
Ah, excellent, thank you for chiming in and educating us! :BEER
Now, how about that Reverb pedal I have heard about?
It's working fine for me too. Just a couple of gigs and a few days of 5 or 6 hours of run time as opposed to six months but no problems.
