Has anyone paired a soul food with a timeline yet? Does it have the high pitched whine that the klon/klones do when the grit knob on the timeline is turned up?

I vaguely remember complaints about this from a while back. Can someone summarize what cause the issue and how it is circumvented or ameliorated?

I had a Soul Food for a couple nights but returned it. Before returning it, I tried this very thing, remembering hearing about the problems with Klon buffers and the Timeline. The Soul Food does NOT hum or whine with the Strymon Timeline. I had the SF powered by a Pedal Power 2+ and the Timeline powered with its own adapter out of the PP2+'s courtesy outlet.

i had heard that it was the charge pump - that elevates your 9 volts to 18 - i had heard that the charge pump circuitry got funky with the timeline.

that being said, i had a walrus audio voyager, charge pump and all, and never had any problems. i have yet to notice anything with the soul food either.

I had a voyager and it did whine with my timeline. Using an ISO-5 for power. My PCE af1 and af2 and my jhs klone all had whine as well.

Gear Page Problems!

(A little less Gear Page given that the issue is with a cheap Klone rather than an actual Klon)
