Expand the "View More" tab and the specs say 400mA minimum, 1A recommended.
I've used mine with 500mA quite often and it works fine.

Re: Clockwork orange soundtrack phaser sound

The 904C Filter Coupler can create a Band Reject (Notch) filter by mixing the 904A and 904B. Sweep that Notch filter with an LFO and you can get some phaser-like sounds. http://www.moogarchives.com/m904c.htm The Uni-Vibe effect was also around back then, starting in the late 60s. It can produce some...

Re: Dave Smith hints at Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4/Prophet 10

But the only issue for me is $$$. Just never spend that kind of money on synths. I would have to sell literally half my studio to buy this. It's definitely a luxury, and it's funny to hear so many people in this thread talk about mid-life crisis purchases. People around my age are certainly the tar...

Re: Dave Smith hint of a new synth coming up in August

Why do they all insist on this tiresome Nostalgia instead of innovating. 1. Dave Smith has resisted 1-for-1 remakes and instead designed new synths for almost 20 years (the Evolver desktop came out in 2002). 2. The "nostalgic" stuff sounds damn good, and I'm glad it is being remade. 3. Plenty of in...

Re: Poly Digit

Looking through the manual, I don't see any pre-made modulation algorithms? Chorus, flange, phase, etc. So I guess if you want chorus you build your own with a delay line and LFO? I'm wondering it this can really replace something like a high end rack unit. Load in actual reverb IRs from say Eventid...

Re: Attention, Zoom effect pedal owners...

Pretty cool, the MS-70CDR is worth having even without the hack. But being able to access even more algorithms is nice.
Personally I think Zoom's distortions and amp sims are not that great though. I had a G3n for a short time and didn't like it. But worth trying if they are "free".

Just don't think its much of a difference to call it something I'd want to purchase.
I have reverbs I like already, and MI Clouds for other crazy stuff. So I'm not in a rush to buy this. But if I didn't have those things, it would probably be an instant buy.

Re: Why buy used at recent market prices?

It seems like every listing gets a dozen lowball offers. Retail has proven that people are a lot happier feeling like they got a deal. I have not had much of a problem with lowball offers, and I think it's because I price everything for a fair and quick sale. If it's priced correctly, it won't be a...

Yamaha Reface CS is perfect for this. It sounds excellent, is extremely simple to use, but has a wider palette of sounds than what you might think based on just looking at it.

Re: Channel strip in a pedal?

I had the Colour Box v2 for a while. The EQ is excellent, and the preamp/distortion is a very specific sound. So listen to demos and make sure that sound is what you want. For bass I'd also recommend checking out the Ampeg SCR-DI. It could be a "do it all" single pedal solution. https://www.sweetwat...

Most likely it will be fine. You will just find that you need to turn down the output volume on your synth to prevent distortion.

after more research I think i might neet a reamp between the aux send and the pedal and a di box between the pedal and the line in? 90% of the time you are fine to just plug in. Most guitar pedals can take a line-level signal just fine. You might have to attenuate the signal going into them to prev...
