    I read that the Soundblox bass envelope filter doesn't come with it's own power supply, but you can buy it. Can you use a 9v battery, or is the power supply a necessity? Thanks in advance
     
  2. It doesn't uses 9V batteries. It uses 4 AA batteries but it can also be powered by a power supply as long as it provides over 110mA (145mA with the Hot Hand) at 9V DC.

    The Source Audio Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter does not come with it's own power supply but the Source Audio Power supply is available for 18.00 from several vendors . Check out the Source Audio Website for more info.
    I don't get why they don't just charge 18.00 more dollars for it and give you the power supply.

    If I'm not mistaken, the pro version does come with the power supply.
     
  8. It does.
     
  9. Easy. Most folks wouldn't use the included power supply anyway and would thusly be wasting that extra $18. I hadn't used a designated power supply in years until I got my Line 6 M9 the other day. I've always used some sort of power supply for my entire board.

    You should be able to, but as always it depends on what else you're powering.

    Should be fine, the 1-Spot gives something like 1700mA, which should be enough to cover those four pedals. Never hurts to check the manuals for each and make sure though.

  15. I have ran it with 8 other pedals off a 1spot , but I did check the maths of the total current drawn first
