    Hi,

    Do you know if it is possible to operate the Octamizer with a 12-volt power supply?

    Thanks,

    Alper

    It is NOT advisable. I asked the same thing and got this from Marco at Aguilar:

    Thank you for using the Filter Twin & the Octamizer.

    There would be no advantage here – they are 9V pedals. Using an improper power supply could cause damage to the pedals.

    Please let me know if I can assist further.

    Kind regards,
    --Marco

    I am actually not looking for any advantage like additional headroom, etc. I just want to daisy-chain the unit with tc Nova Delay which has a 12-volt power supply...

    Makes no difference, it's still 12 volts going into a 9 volt pedal :)
