    Somewhere i read that you shouldn´t connect a digital pedal to the same powersuply that powers analog pedals for it could cause sound problems. Did anyone encounter problems when doing that?

    If the powersupply you are using has isolated connections, it shouldn't be a problem.

  3. I had this problem trying to run a Zoom pedal as well as Boss pedals off a Powerbank supply.
    mind you, the Boss pedals are an ODB3 and a CEB3 - isn't the CEB3 chorus digital?

    i plan to get this one:
    http://www.cioks.com/products/john.htm

    ...and i think the connections are not isolated.

    That´s my effects:
    DIGITECH Bass Synth Wah

    EH Big Muff (russian)
    EBS multicomp
    Sansamp BDDI

    ...does anybody have a similar setup (including the DIGITECH) without problems coming from one powersource?

    I've never heard about such issues and don't see why they would happen. On the other hand, although I've always been satisfied with my old Signalflex power supply, I can tell you I noticed a dramatic reduction of hum (now it has just completely disappeared) since I installed the Cioks.
