Need power?

    I was wondering how do you get power to 3 pedals (and more eventually) with the one power supply, do you just use a splitter and run it parellel or do you have to buy a specialist one that was designed that way. Also it needs to be found in Australia?

    I don't know if they make an Australian version of The Visual Sound One Spot or not. Maybe you can contact them.

    Are all your pedals 9V? Do they all require DC power? How many milliamps?

    A little more help here, and we can get you an answer rather quickly.

    Don't forget, he is on Aussie power...

    9V and milliamps are measures used all around the world ;)

    Yes, I understand. However, not all solutions will work in Australia- like the 1 Spot, for Australia runs on [size=-1]230V, 50 Hz IIRC. This means he would need a transformer also.

    As I said, there may be a native solutuion for him.

    there all Behringer stompboxes, so i think the power needs to be 9v at 100mah. Lol us Aussies are infact power hungry, go the 240v :smug:

    You know, one spot is sold in europe too with 230 AC 50HZ, so don't worry

    is this better then just going one seperate adapter per pedal? Would it cause any groundloops? I know it will take up much less space and money but is it as good, as going one adapter per pedal (e.g. no worrying about groundloops extra noise)?

    Also, how much space do you have from one pedal to another wen using one of these daisy chain adapter things? Woudl my pedals have to be really close together or do I have quite a bit of room to have them spread out?

    Definately have about a foot between each pedal. Plenty of maneuvering room.

    I use a Boss PSA (Australian models are 240V) and a daisy chain. Simple as :)

    Downside: I get major ground loop action when using distortions, to the point where my NS-2 can barely control the noise. I'd like to get a DC Brick at some stage.

    I've been experiencing (with my wah) /thinking the same thing. The DC brick uses an adapter (the one for your region would be supplied) and then splits the mAmps up into 7 9V and 3 18V ports.

    One question I have is how much power can you get from one of the 9V outs. I've heard it's only 55 mA (out of the 1000). I'm looking to get 100-120 :( .

    The OneSport I have says on the package it will work "anywhere in the world" from 110 to 240v. It's $20 for the onespot and $10 for each 5 pedal daisy-chain.
