STS Serge power question

Post by Jd1979 » Sun Mar 29, 2020 12:45 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering if a STS Serge psa2 would be able to power both and animate and an animoo, if both panels are plugged into a psd? Any assistance is appreciated.

Hi. Suspect not, it’s intended for a single panel IIRC.

the 2 is code for supposedly being able to power 2 panels although with the animate, it might be too close.

Worked for me, powering 2 m-class (creature/quadslope) and blue voice panel.

Things got funky when I added a third panel so I had to grow the power supply .

Should be ok but you have a lot of VCO's (as per Serge paradigm) in those two panels. It is part of the modules which consumn the most.
Check if those are stable enough. If it start's getting unstable, good chances you have not enough juice and more powerfull PSU will be mandatory.

So far so good...I’m waiting on a format jumbled to come in to really put it through the paces by externally controlling via Elektron analog keys. So we shall see if the animate and animoo can handle just the psa2. I have a second psa2 but only one psd. I ordered a second one from Rex so I will have two psa to use if needed.
