Power Adapter question
« on: July 21, 2020, 07:18:46 PM »
I'm trying to build the Smoothie 2020 phaser, and have ran into a problem.  The volume of the pedal is very faint, and there is no phasing effect.  In the build doc, under the voltages section there is a blurb "9.42v DC One Spot".  Does the pedal require this type of adapter?  If so, who has something available?  Thanks.

I haven't looked at the doc but i'd think that 9.42v DC is what's pertinent as a reference.

It's only mentioned as a reference point. As long as you have a decent 9v supply that's what matters.

If you are getting faint output and no phasing then there is something else wrong in the build I suggest looking at the guidelines for getting help with specific builds:
