How to Power 1, 12v Sequencer?

Post by emergencyofstate » Wed Mar 10, 2010 4:34 pm

edit* this post has been edited from my original question. now wondering about powering a single 12v module.

-----

Say I needed to power 1 thing that needed 18v and 1 thing that needed 12v. What are my options?

It would theoretically be an SEM and a Klee Sequencer.

find out if one of them could be powered by the lower/higher voltage.
otherwise 2 supplies or a very custom supply with 2 sets of regulators at different outputs. we are speaking bi-polar on both as well right?

wait a minute. you are getting some serge gear aren't you?
you could power the klee from the serge psu given it is 12v as well.

Well...I'm saving for the serge. :) So I'm looking to get something patchable, analogue (yet compact) in the meantime like the SEM.

I guess 2 separate power supplies then? ick

typical psu for the 12v and maybe a wall wart for the 18v. is that an option?

yeah, that would be an option. BUT It's looking like now that I'm going to score a patchable SEM but it will have it's own PSU.

So now I need to morph this discussion into:

What's the easiest way (or best way) to power 1 thing (Klee Seqiencer) via 8 pin doepfer style connector. Is there something i can buy or fashion to act as a adapter so I can use a wall wart or something?

in other words, I don't need a busboard...just need to power 1 module.
