to make a long story short: over the years i succesfully sized down my “studio”, got rid of most of my synthesizers, modulars and rack units, replaced quite a bit with dektop units, never could say goodbye to so many fx pedals… and i quit playing guitar in my band recently - even more pedals in the house now
actually i´m pretty happy with my setup but there´s not much equipment left over
that could hide all that messy power supply stuff.
of course i know about that fuel tanks voodoolab cioks palmer strymon eventide power supply stuff, but when i look on my desk (and the floor) i´ve got no idea what to get.
there are these big expensive power supplies that can handle pretty much everything, but for my needs they seem to be, well, too big and expensive. lol.
don´t get me wrong, i do not search for an item that replaces everything, but i also do not want to add another power strip (again) just because of these volcas i´ve added recently…
i thought about powering stuff seperateley by series, for example power all moogerfoogers with one unit, power all eventides/strymons with one unit, power all korg volcas with one unit, power all oto-s with one unit (cough…) etc
(i don´t mention standard 9v guitar pedals here, they are no problem)
another thought was to get a smaller multi out power supply with lots of power and different voltages and daisy chain from it´s single outputs. no problem again with standard guitar pedals i think but i should better forget this idea when talking about digital pedals or moogerfoogers, shouldn´t i ?
how do you guys organize that other than using a dedicated power supply for each device ?
it´s easier when you´ve got a fixed pedal board or desktop setup of course…
but i switch pedals all the time. (from floor to desktop to mic/keys etc…)
read some horror stories in the internet that go like: you can easily hook up this and that pedal to a power supply, but if you connect one too much it will kill everything in less than a minute - is that true ?
back to the volcas i´ve mentioned before. how do you power them up ? a my volts splitter cable hooked up to what ? an usb wal wart, a fuel tank type of device ? other solutions?
well, many questions, as you see i even don´t know exactly what i´m searching for. that´s why i ask you: how do you organize your power supplies ?
