Anyone using a PP2+ to power a Skreddy Echo? I'm interested in which outputs & DIP switch settings should be used for the best performance and least modulation bleed when the rate and intensity knobs are at zero. --thanks.

I would dare guess that it would work from any output set to Normal, however only output 5 or 6 is going to provide the 200mA+ headroom suggested. If you would rather run it at 18V then you would need an 18V Y cable. Good Luck!

I have it in 5 now... I'm not sure I'm getting the power it needs. Would flipping the DIP switch from normal to "on" for 5 or 6 overload the pedal?

Flipping the DIP Switch away from Normal for output 5 will not harm the pedal as it is able to handle up to 18V. Because we do not know what the actual current draw of the pedal is, I cannot say for certain what voltage the pedal will see but it can't possibly be more than 14.5V.

How about this question instead... What about the pedal leads you to think it is not getting the power it needs? Output 5 when switched to Normal is regulated at 9V and has a current capacity of up to 250mA.

It's part of a discussion I've been having with Mark Alfs, who makes the Skreddy Echo.

I am unable to zero out the modulation effect on the pedal, and he posited the idea that it might be due to low power to the pedal itself. The information you've provided is very helpful -- it sounds like there should be plenty of power there, and there might be a problem with the pedal itself.
