PPAV Pedal Power Cable 2.1mm Barrel (Output Splitter)

Post by OdgeUK » Thu Oct 29, 2020 3:07 am

Would there be any issue with hooking up a single pedal with this adapter, leaving the second split barrel unconnected? I was thinking that it would be useful to power a pedal with this cable, leaving the floating barrel available for those times when you might want to add a pedal to the board for trying stuff out (where you've used up all the remaining DC outputs on the Voodoo)?

Hello Odge UK. I'm in need for a similar answer, it seems to me that in this post -> http://www.voodoolab.com/forum/viewt ... ter#p32349 users have somewhat indirectly addressed your question. If I'm not mistaken, they talk about how the splitter is designed in a way that it reduces hum if it's not connected to a pedal.

Thanks for that, appreciate it. I actually ended up posting this question again, as post approval took so long that I thought it had been lost. I got an answer from Ben at tech support which supports the link you kindly posted. He said:

"That can work fine and without causing any problems, but... if only one pedal is connected, it will only work if the one pedal is connected to the all-black lead (not the lead with the white stripe, which is ground lifted and will not function unless both pedals are connected)."
