Md mki power supply - help!


#1

I’ve just purchased a Machinedrum MKI from the U.S (I’m from Australia) and didn’t realise that the power supply had a step down transformer built into it…

Looking into it further I’ve found that a lot of people struggle to track down a power supply for the MKI.

Is there anyone who knows where to purchase the specific 6v AC psu that it needs? Or has anyone found one themselves?

I think I will be fine with anything that’s either 230/240 V, as long as it’s not the U.S 100v.

Any help would be much appreciated!!!

also, any store selling Elektron where you are may have them for sale locally.

Thanks for your reply, but I have just realised that I completely forgot to add the most important fact of all - that it is a MKI unit…

Just updated the original post to clear that up.

Hi everyone, i just purchased a MD Mk1 and the power supply seems not to be working (at least i hope that is what’s wrong with it…). Has anybody got an idea where i could get a replacement (EU, preferably germany)?

hi redukt,

i suggest you open a new thread for your question.

where are you located? i am in berlin … unfortunatly I have a mk ii model, other wise you could try my power supply … i dont think they are the same but I may be mistaken

Here ya go…

Note MK1 are 6VAC not 12VDC like the MK2…

For any UK dwellers who might find this useful - last year I got a backup MD MK1 power supply from here:

I think I need a new power supply. Did you test this model and did it work fine? Thanks

Yes, i still use it now - those are the MK1 specs.


#12

Cool thanks, I’ve filled out their contact form. They don’t seem to have a store as such.

An excellent alternative power supply for the MK1 and the Octatrack is the iConnectivity iConnectMIDI2+ power supply.

It is bi-volt (110-220) and outputs 6v 3a, it also has a small footprint, and I found it in many places to buy as accessory.

Just check the plug type because I´m not sure about the MK1:

Sorry! Thought the MK1 was DC and it is AC

I do not think this will work as the MK1 uses an AC/AC power supply.

Ouch!

Thanks for point it out.

Hi!
I am looking for a PSU for a machinedrum mk1.
It gives 6V AC and 2.5 A which is more or less impossible to find anywhere.
I am based in Germany and would be happy if anyone could give me a hint where to get this.
Cheers!


#17

Send elektron a support ticket they will sell you one.


#18

I doubt that Elektron has had any power supplies for Mk 1 instruments for several years.


#19

Didnt realise they were AC
