    Anything special I need to do to get the nova delay to power up off the PP2+
    It seems to NOT be working.
    I've tried using output 8 with the dip on or off. Should I try a different output like 1?

    Thanks!!

    Sorry but I use 8 with the dip on with no trouble. Cable problem??

    This info is from Voodoo Labs, and has been posted earlier:

    The Nova needs 12 Volts and over 300 mA (not sure of the exact current draw), so even if you use one of the outputs that supply 12.3VDC, the pedals is trying to draw more current than the PP2+ can give. I'd check with Voodoo Labs whether the PP2+ can handle this.

    When I had the Nova, I simply used the wall-wart and the courtesy jack on the back of the PP2+. In the end though, I got rid of the Nova and bought a delay that can be powered from one of the regular outputs.

    there is a y cable that doubles the current capacity (no not voltage) that will work.

    Yes use outputs 5 and 6 with dip switch ON and use the T-Rex Doubler Cable which combines both outputs to double the current.

    Thank you guys!
    Guess there'll be one more Nova delay in the emporium very soon then.

    sorry to hijack the thread, but can the nova delay be powered off of a dunlop dc brick?
    i'd love to know.

    isn't the nova reverse polarity?
