Re: Fitting 0-Coast and 0-CTRL into a case

I agree, that the case is a little bigger than what I need (0-Coast, 0-CTRL, battery and wires) but I can't find any useful tips in the Serge/Buchla/EMS subforum. Are you able to post a couple of links? https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=120389 Thanks! I am considering buying a ...

Fitting 0-Coast and 0-CTRL into a case

Yesterday I got my 0-Coast and 0 CTRL to work with a battery, and now I want to try to fit them both into a case. I bought a cheap case from Monoprice, and it is the right size to fit everything. Now I need to figure out how to securely fit both the 0-Coast, 0-CTRL and the battery. In the case, ther...

Re: Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

A quick update. After a lot of writing back and forth with MyVolts, Thomann and Make Noise, I now have a solution. Support at MyVolts told me that a Anker PowerCore 15600 mAh might be a solution - and it was! It works! Nor for my next step, to fit everything into a case...this must become another po...

Re: Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

If you have a multimeter, it may have a mode for measuring current. You'd need to make a cable so you could wire it into the circuit, but it would tell you the current draw of the 0-Coast from its transformer. At this point, I'd sit tight and wait until Myvolts gets back to you. You might also cont...

Re: Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

Yeah, I'd contact Myvolts and ask them about their experience with the 0-Coast. I usually stick with Anker batteries, because I've had issues with other brands, so it's certainly possible your battery is delivering less than the specced current. There's a problem somewhere, though, because even if ...

Re: Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

Just tried it as you suggested. 0CTRL seems to work fine, but 0Coast did not. All leds blinked dimly once, and then nothing. Plugged it into the standard PSU and it worked fine. I guess that the 0coast needs more power to start up? You're probably right about the 0-Coast needing more current. Did y...

Re: Fitting a spring reverb into my suitcase

If I remember correctly, the medium sized tank is a few centimeters less in height as the big one too. Edit: just checked: length and width are shorter. Height is the same 3.3cm. Regarding the spring access, you can also mount the tank with the open side facing upward. Yes, I just jumped on the big...

Re: Fitting a spring reverb into my suitcase

Have you looked into half-width accutronics spring reverbs? I’ve once had one mounted in my portable Eurorack case and it sounded awesome. Didn’t really feel a need for a large tank then. Yes, but the issue is not length but height. The length of the large tank fits fine, but with the outer chamber...

Re: Fitting a spring reverb into my suitcase

Thank you Yes, after looking at numerous sites explaining the anatomy of a spring reverb, I understood that the "housing" or outer metal case is called the "outer channel". It sounds like I should keep it inside, and maybe mount it in the suitcase lid instead. But looking at the Knas Ekdahl Moisturi...

Fitting a spring reverb into my suitcase

I am building a suitcase 6U 82HP, and I have a small cavity in the bottom of the case. I have a large accutronics spring reverb, which I am thinking about putting in there. The thing is, that for it to fit, and to make the springs accessible, I need to remove the "outer case/channel". The thing is, ...

Battery powered 0CTRL + 0Coast

I recently discovered that MyVolts have a plug, that can help what many 0Coast owners have wanted for some time: making it portable. Now the question is: how do I find a battery that can power both 0CTRL and 0coast at the same time, that is with 2xUSB ports? I have seen elsewhere that some are using...

Great!
Thanks! I was looking at the Strom from Koma. Seems like an easier solution, but it would be great if power was integrated into the case

I am a bit worried about getting electrocuted while constructing my suitcase. Are there any kits that are bit more “secure” than others?

Actually I haven’t thought about powering everything from the same supply. Would be great.

Wrong subforum

I know that most discussions about this are on Eurorack Modules. But I thought this made better sense somehow.
Thanks for the tips. Went to Schneiders three weeks ago. First visit and it was great. Should have known about that kit though.
