Concern about Intensity values.

Post by santiagotapiay » Tue Jan 26, 2016 10:17 am


My Pedal board consist of:

- Digitech Whammy DT,
- Tech 21 Sans Amp Classic,
- Electro Harmonix Micro Metal Muff,
- Electro Harmonix Polychorus XO, and
- Boss Digital Delay DD7.

I saw the spec's on each voodoolab power supply Product, and all the products manage the follow intensity values: 200 mA and 400 mA. So my concern is, which voodoo lab could be perfect for the pedals mentioned using that Intensity values. Yes, the Whammy DT and the SansAmp has own power supply adaptors but I really like use the complete group of pedals with a voodoo product, so which one do you recommend me.

Thank you so much. Excuse me if this question is so rookie.

You need to take all the pedals you listed and add up their Voltage requirements. As long as your power supply is equal to or greater than that total, you'll be fine.
I am not affiliated with Voodoo Lab in any way, but enjoy sharing what little MIDI and signal routing knowledge I have. If you find my assistance helpful, please pay it forward.

Only the Whammy DT draws more current than "regular pedals" so it would require one of the High Current 9V outputs on a Pedal Power Digital or 4x4. The rest of your pedals can be powered from any remaining 9V output... If you go with a Pedal Power Digital you can use one of the 12V outputs for the Polychorus since it will accept 9 or 12V.

I hope that helps!
