As title says, I built Backhaus (Danielson schematic) oct/hz converter to put in a Yamaha CS5.
However, the CS5 was acting very weird when it was drawing power, depending on where I was taking it from.
Even when taking from the connections straight from the PSU.

SO basically Im wondering if Im messing up the current flow, and if someone could give me some basic pointers on that, especially as Im adding modules to other things as well.

I supposed that there would be some juice left over for such, but it seems like theres not? Or is there some common way to deal with such projects?

Have you tested the oct/hz converter with a standalone power supply? Does it work properly?
What power supply does it need? Could you measure how much current does it draw?

What is the power supply of the CS5? Linear? Switching? Could you measure how much current does it draw?
