Digitakt : External battery / Power pack options?


#417

Has anyone used a usb - c output to the 2.5dc digitakt in?

I know it has the dc out, but was going to use that occasionally for my laptop.


#418

Nice information and photo! Did you end up finding out how long the charge holds?


#419

How long does the battery’s last powering the two digi or just one by itself.


#420

What case is that? The dimensions are nice.

Thanks!

I didn´t test it long enough, I was messing around with it for maybe an hour and the battery was still full so it´ll be a few hours for sure.
Tested it today to power 3 additional USB devices (via power plug) along with the two Digi´s and the battery has enough juice. The fan inside the battery is working hard though.

It´s the Magma Carry Lite L. I just got the XXL version today so I can fit in the Keystep as well and another desktop synth (Waldorf Streichfett).


#423

Thanks! It looks like the perfect size for DT and DN combo (plus cables).

I won’t derail this thread any further.

Dam that’s awesome the digi combo in a brief case is a dream. Can you post a pic of the new set up with the the key step when you get is set up?


#425

sure, it was the first thing i did when i got home :wink:


#426

Bought a Mini-G Powertraveller. Can supply the Digi combo for 3-4 hours. Made a splitter myself to charge both units, though I have to switch them on exactly the same time or else they turn each other off. Other than that, No problems!


#427

That’s a great setup.


#428

Hey would any V-mount battery solution work with a digitakt?


#429

can the top cover be removed?


#430

The too can be removed on some Magma Carry Lite models, but not all. The lid on the Magma Carry Lite XL Plus (Model No. 41101) DOES have a removable lid.

Mine is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. :smiley:


#431

as @papertiger said it can be removed but apparently there are some different models out there. I have both the L version as well as the XXL version and both of mine have a detachable lid.


#432

The best thing to do is to call the place you’re ordering from and ask them to check the case you’re interested in ordering. Both retailers I ordered from were surprised I received a model where the lid didn’t detach!

This seems like wishful thinking but I’m curious as to whether you all think this might work and what USB battery pack would make it work.

I have a Digitakt, Minilogue, Monologue, Volca Drum, OP-Z, and 1010Music Blackbox I’d like to potentially make into a portable rig.

OP-Z and Blackbox power via USB

Minilogue, Monologue, and Volca Drum can supposedly all be powered by this;

Would it be possible to get a USB power pack that can power all these gears with that and a compatible USB power block?

After trying a few (3+!) different solutions, this one seems best (just make sure you have a hefty battery that can last a while, but any decent one will do). I’m using an AUKEY 16000mAh with this 5V -> 12V voltage step-up cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074R7FDCR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Cheap and does the job well.
