Indeed, is Voodo Labs ISO 5 also enough for my needs?
Sometime next week a few pedals will arrive and I'm planning to move away from the pedaltrain mini to a Jr. Then today I saw a thread titled “Voodo Labs ISO 5 enough for my needs? ” This got me thinking... Crap! I also have an ISO-5!! Do I also need to upgrade the brick? Double crap!
These are my pedals (proton might move, but this is the order of my chain):
30 mA - TU-3
60 mA - micro thrumpinator (always on, can be daisy chained)
6 mA – Octamizer (leaftlet says 6, I don't believe it, I should assume 20)
20 mA - VMT
20 mA - You're Doom
30 mA - B7K (always on, must be isolated)
25 mA - Proton
??? - PWNZOR (assuming always on)
This is the plan:
The 3x 100 mA will have: B7K, micro thrumpinator, PWNZOR (each isolated)
On the 9v 300 mA: TU-3
Then I'll draw a daisy chain out of the TU-3's output (200mA) that will connect the ones I stomp on: Octamizer, VMT, You're Doom, Proton (for a total draw of 71-85 mA on the chain)
It means the B7K will go back to 9v instead of 12v and the 18v will remain empty. I have no idea about the PWNZOR
What do you think? Looks to me like all the pedals will be happy but am I missing something?
I have a guitar pedalboard with about 7 - 8 pedals, all powered by my ISO-5. Very similar setup to what you've described, except I don't have a TU-3; I just made my own 1-to-4 daisy chain cable. I've had no problems with noise or hum whatsoever.
Looks like a perfect solution to me! If you do find noise with any of the pedals you can easily switch around which ones are isolated.
