      Hi all, just ordered y H90, thanks again Eventide for the continued evolution of the product line ! Couple of questions: what’s the power draw in milliamps for power brick integration ? Are the routing combinations (in/out/stereo/dual mono) configurable on a per preset basis ?

       

      thanks

      Should add – I mean the I/O config routing (not the internal signal path)

      What’s the power draw in milliamps for power brick integration? 

      Although we provide a 12V 1 amp power adapter, the H90 can be powered with 600mA. Testing with our own PowerMax/Mini products we can safely run it at 12V 500mA because of the excellent efficiency of those power supplies. 9V works as well, but it’s a hungry 800mA.

      Are the routing combinations (in/out/stereo/dual mono) configurable on a per preset basis ? thanks

      The H90 has two global routing modes – Dual mode and Insert Mode. When you designate one, the program routing (series-parallel, insert positions [insert mode only]) can change on a program basis. Keep in mind, however, that Programs designed in Insert Mode do not work in Dual mode and Vice versa.

        I have a power brick (Voodoo Power 3 Plus). Would combining two 9V 500mA outputs with a current adapter to get 9V 1000mA work OK?

      Yes. Voodoo makes the Current Doubler adapter.

      And what about ciocks DC7?

      it provides max 12v 500ma

      is a double cable needed in this case too?
      thanks

        A single 12V 500mA outlet from a DC7 will power the H90.

        But *not* the 12V 400mA outlet from the original PowerFactor? That’s what I’m using now, and it *seems* to be working properly, but I’m starting to get a little paranoid about it.

      Hi all, and Eventide gurus ! The complexities of electricity !

      Just to confirm (as im a bit nervous about hitting the unit with 18v)  – 2@ 9 volt, 400ma outputs combined with the Voodoo Lab current doubler https://voodoolab.com/product/current-doubler-adapter/ will work with the H90 and not damage the unit ?

      I am using the following https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PedalPwrDig–voodoo-lab-pedal-power-digital-4-output-isolated-guitar-pedal-power-supply

      Utilising the two 9 volt 400ma outputs as described above. Thanks !

      We do not recommend under powering the unit with only 400mA.

      You will be alright.

      By the way, this cable s doubles the current not the voltage, so you’re not hitting it with 18v.

      Thankyou joecozzi  – fed ex mentioned my unit is somewhere south of Hawaii over the pacific. Hopefully it will get to Australia (without a stop over at the Marshall Islands) 😀

      I have a cioks dc5 if I use the CIOKS 4022 Type 4 Stack Flex Power in the outs that have 300ma each would that be enough to power the H90? Two 12v at 400 ma each.

      thanks

      No. The stack flex cable is used to add the voltages of each outlet. The H90 cannot accept 18V or 24V.

      Ok thanks. Is it the cioks 8800 that doubles the ma? So if I used two 12v 300ma outlets with cioks 8800 will that then provide it 12v 600ma and would that be safe?

       

      thanks again

      Yes and yes.

      Hey there. Looking forward to receiving my unit soon. I am currently running power to m H9 with current doubler cable from my Voodoo Labs pedal power two from the two “Line6” outlets. Will this work for the H90 as well?

      If the dip switch is ON for 12V functionality and you use a current doubling cable, you’ll achieve the minimum amount of power to turn the unit on. So, the answer to will it work is yes. However, at boot up, the H90 spikes to about 550mA. I am not familiar with that power supplies ability to handle that since this method would only top out at 500mA. I would search elsewhere.

      I just confirmed with True Tone that their CS7 will power the H90. Even though the highest current output is listed as 500ma, the total current load can be up to 1900ma which is automatically distributed as needed, as long as the total draw doesn’t exceed that total current number. Given that my other pedals draw about 200ma, I have a fair amount of headroom.

        Hi

        I have a JUMA pedal power from stymon and it has 12V 500mA output option. Do I still have to use current doubling cable for the enough amount of current?

        Thanks!

        I’ve just found that JUMA 12V provides 350mA not 500mA, so I would need use current doubling cable.
