Hi all,
Im quite new to this but im having a bit of trouble finding all the info i need on the forum!

Just a few questions regarding building a stand-alone MPS:

1. Do I have to build my own power supply? Could I just use a good regulated 18v that a guitar pedal would use?

2. Is it possible to add CV control, to control the pitch of the shell and impact?



Thanks in advance Very Happy

Ok, they were stupid questions Smile

The MFOS wall wart +15v/-15v seems like a good choice!

And it appears that there is already a CV control for the shell component, does this mean you can make mega percussive basslines? (I've yet to find a video where someone does this)

Frequency central also makes a good one that is quite similar.

It's show for Euro, but omit the Euro header and it has wires for the voltages, and you can use 15V regulators instead of 12V and it works fine.

I'd swear I heard one.... but I can't find it now either. Sorry...

Awesome, this seems like a slightly cheaper option for me, thanks very much for the reply!
