Hi Admin thanks for you reply but you miss understand my question. i dont want to run it from the same power unit as if i have a issuse with that unit my whole show will stop . i want to run it from four seperate units So i always have a back up if one or two units break (for example a drunk person spills bear on it -this has happened to me :-( not with a ae system but other set ups ) i.e. my live set up is rock solid with multiple back up.
my question is can i patch the four ae moduls togther but power them all sepratly so unit 1 has a power supply - unit 2 has a power suppy ect so patch a osloater from unity one in to a envlope or multi effect in unit 2 or 3
would this be ok really so i am quit new to modula and just dont wat to break it thank you loads
thanks for you reply that is very help full - i though their might be a issuse :-) will post video my band is called warm digits
i ve only been workin with the Ae for the last few month but i am triggering the system from my drum kit (snare and bassdrum) sending CV to the the seq that acts as a randomniser for notes and it is sounding great
Actually, I was going to suggest the approach that I use with Gargantua: get a VERY hardcore power supply that isn't likely to be overloaded by a huge current draw, and run it all on that. If you use four different wallwarts, and you go out on a gig and one winds up going MISSING (been there, done that, it sucks), you'll be in a similar situation as you would if you popped a single supply.
Gargantua uses a Tektronix PS282...variable voltage, with something like 5 Amps of reserve. From it, I split off the two power leads for the MASTERs it has, then there's link ribbons that maintain the ground plane across the cab pairs powered by each MASTER. And that TEK supply is pretty damn hardcore; it's a scientific-grade LINEAR supply, fully-recalibrated by Valuetronics up in the Chicago burbs, cost all of $90 + shipping. That type of supply is also noiseless, pretty much; I've had it on a scope, and it exhibits NO ripple, NO noise, none of that. Dead-stable. And since Gargantua doesn't draw anywhere near its 5A capacity, it gets to loaf right along like nobody's business.
And yeah, it's quite portable...about the size of a lunchbox, even has a handle on top! Convenient AND top-notch!
