ISO 5 Help!

Post by starfire » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:25 pm

Hi all,

I'm new to the pedal world and trying to set up my bass pedals on a small Dingbat board with an IS0 5. I'm using the following:

Korg DT10 Tuner
Keeley Super Bass Compressor
Source Audio Aftershock Bass Distortion
Boss GEB-7 EQ
EH Bassballs

The Aftershock can be used 9V but requires a min of 150mA, so I'd like to put it in the high current 9V output. My question is this: can I put a regular 9V pedal (ie. the EQ) into the other (12v) side?

In general, to avoid risk of damage, 9VDC pedals should be powered only with 9VDC (and not with, 12V or 18V).

Perhaps, use an Output Splitter Adapter, part# PPAV on one of the 9V outputs, to power a pair of 9V pedals (maybe use it on the 9V 400mA output, as it has the greatest current capacity to share).
