Cool! 🤘 Looking forward to hearing about how well it integrates and what you do with it!
I’d actually just dug out that Ochen K looper after Enoch was talking about it. I need to see how that’ll work with latching on the board. I never really used the looper before but after messing about with it I think it could be really fun. Don’t know how to sync it to start and stop with the transport bar though…pribably just automate it I guess. Anyway…that’ll probably be my first project after I get some sleep :).

Haven’t had time. Been working nights. Really tired. Actually forgot I’d have to register. Maybe today. :)

hello,

pacer controller and 2 expression pedals are in the mail
glad to join the club
i hope the reason mapping is goodgood

i saw a morningstar pedal with 8 switches and 4 expression pedal inputs
but it was smaller and seems like you'd step on more than 1 button at once

pacer and kuassa and korg nanokontrol for the win

cheers and eat well,

hello,

reading more pacer info
the pedal controller does not come with a power supply
(i guess most people power it with the usb)

i prefer a dedicated power supply

i cannot find one on nektar's website

it needs to be a 9v / 600mA / center negative / 2.1mm barrel connector

i found this on amazon
it looks correct

[Inner Negative] SoulBay 3V 4.5V 5V 6V 7.5V 9V 12V Multi Voltage AC/DC Adapter Switching Replacement Power Supply with 8 Plugs for Tip Negative Effects Pedals Keyboards - 2A Max

(i tried to post the link from amazon 5 times, but it won't let me (sorry))

edit: found this one:


9V AC/DC Power Adapter for BOSS, Dunlop, DanElectro, DigiTech, Ditto, Electro Harmonix, TC Electronic, Zoom Guitar Multi Effects Pedal, Casio Piano Keyboard by Eagleggo, Center Negative Connector
Brand: Eagleggo

edit: i think this is the best one:

Blucoil 9V 670mA Power Supply with Slim US Plug AC Adapter Center Negative - Compatible with BOSS, Behringer, DigiTech, Jim Dunlop, MXR, Nobels, NUX, Roland, TC Electronic, Xotic, Zoom Effects Pedals

(this one also has a longer cord, too)

(i'm just keeping track of stuff at this point)


can anyone comment or advise of a power supply that works with the pacer controller please

cheers and thank you,
