Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Digital
Pedal Power Digital® is a linear (analog) power supply for high-current DSP-based pedal effects and accessories. With 4 completely isolated, filtered, and regulated output sections, Pedal Power Digital keeps your pedals dead quiet and free from high-frequency noise that occurs with digital "switching" power supplies.
Pedal Power Digital will properly power up to 4 digital power-hungry effects like those from Strymon, Eventide, Line 6, TC Electronic and more. Its compact size is perfect for small pedalboards, rack shelves, and as an additional power supply for larger boards.
Built to meet the needs of professional users, Pedal Power Digital will provide clean, consistent power, even under the poor AC line conditions often found on stage. Completely isolated output sections eliminate ground loops and unwanted interactions between effects, resulting in lower noise and noticeably improved tone.
|Pedal Power® Digital features:|

Powers Strymon, Eventide, Line 6 (excludes M9/M13), Boss Twin, TC Electronic Nova, Moog and more
Also compatible with all 9V battery operated pedals
Linear regulation and toroidal transformer for lowest possible noise
Temperature controlled variable speed fan
Compact design fits small pedalboards and rack shelves
Engineered and handmade in the USA
Pedal Power Digital is an all-analog power supply designed for high-current,
digital pedal effects like those from Eventide, Line 6, Strymon and TC Electronic.
With four independent, filtered and regulated 400mA output sections, Pedal
Power Digital can properly power modern DSP-based effects and all 9V battery
Nearly all DSP-based effects made today are supplied with digital switching
power adapters, which produce significant high frequency noise. Because Pedal
Power Digital is an audiophile quality linear (analog) supply, there are no digital
artifacts to introduce into your signal path. And, its ultra low-noise design keeps
the most sensitive vintage and boutique analog pedals dead quiet.
All linear, transformer-based power supplies generate heat. While other high-
power linear supplies operate at excessively high internal temperatures (which
will limit their long term reliability), Pedal Power Digital includes many exclusive
design features to keep internal temperatures within proper limits to guarantee
Designed to meet the needs of professional users, Pedal Power Digital provides
clean, consistent power, even under the poor AC line conditions often found on
stage. Completely isolated output sections eliminate ground loops and unwanted
interactions between effects, resulting in lower noise and noticeably improved
All Voodoo Lab products are engineered and handmade in the U.S.A.
Pedal Power Digital is powered directly from AC mains using the supplied
detachable line cord. This is a standard computer-type IEC line cord, so it’s easy
to obtain a replacement or different length.
Important: Pedal Power Digital is manufactured to operate from a specific line
voltage (100V, 120V or 240V) which is marked on the bottom of the unit.
Attempting to operate at the wrong voltage may cause permanent damage.1, 2) 9V and 12V high-current output pairs. Each pair is an isolated output
section providing up to 400mA.
Note: The 9V and 12V outputs within a pair are not isolated from each other
(their negative terminals are common). It is preferred to use only one from each
pair. If using both, combined output should not exceed 400mA.
Important: Do NOT operate two high-current digital effects from the same
isolated section by using both 9V and 12V jacks of the pair.
3, 4) 9V high-current outputs. Use for all devices which require 400mA or less.
All 9V outputs can also power ordinary low-current battery operated pedals.
DC Power Cables
The Pedal Power end of each supplied DC power cable has a black barrel
connector. The other end has either another identical black barrel connector
(center negative) or a 5.5x2.5mm red barrel (center positive). Use the standard
right-angle black barrel connector cables with most common 9V battery operated
Before powering your pedal with the standard black barrel connector, you must
verify that the pedal requires “center negative” polarity to prevent damage.
Cables are available from Voodoo Lab to properly power “center positive” pedals.
Line 6 M5 and Tone Core pedals, plus Pocket POD can be powered from any
available 9V output using a standard black 5.5x2.1mm barrel cable.
You can power Line 6 modeling pedals, like DL4 or MM4, using the 12V outputs
with a red 5.5x2.5mm barrel cable. This does not match the rating of the supplied
Line 6 adapter, but does correctly power these pedals. Note that PODxt & HD,
M9, M13 and the JM4 Looper cannot be powered by Pedal Power Digital.
All Strymon pedals (including the larger format Timeline) can be powered from
any of the 9V outputs using a standard black 5.5x2.1mm barrel cable.
Important: Strymon pedals should only be powered from the 9V outputs.
Attempting to power from a 12V output may permanently damage the pedal.
Don’t do it, we warned you!
TC Electronic’s Nova pedals such as the Delay, Modulator and Reverb can be
powered from either the 9V or 12V outputs using a standard black 5.5x2.1mm
barrel cable. The 9V output does not match the rating of the supplied TC
Electronic adapter, but does correctly power these pedals.
Important: While you can power the Nova pedals from either 9V or 12V outputs,
do NOT operate two Nova pedals from the same isolated section by using both
9V and 12V jacks of the pair. This WILL exceed the 400mA current rating.
Other TC Electronic pedals which can be powered from a 9V battery, such as the
Classic and TonePrint series, can operate from any of the 9V outputs.
The Eventide stompboxes (TimeFactor, ModFactor, PitchFactor and Space) can
be powered from either the 9V or the 12V outputs using the red 5.5x2.5mm
barrel cable. The 12V output does not match the rating of the supplied Eventide
adapter, but does correctly power these pedals.
Important: While you can power the Eventide stompboxes from either 9V or 12V
outputs, do NOT operate two Eventide pedals from the same isolated section by using both 9V and 12V jacks of the pair. This WILL exceed the 400mA current
