PP2+ & TC Nova Drive

Post by Stef » Thu Jul 23, 2009 12:46 am

Hello,
I am an happy owner of a "old" PP2 but it doesn't power the TC Nova drive.
Does the PP2+ (using output 5, switch "on") power this pedal ?
Thank you in advance for your reply,
Stef.

The Pedal Power 2+ will power any of the TC Electronic Nova series pedals as well as any of the TC Helicon VoiceTone series pedals on Output 5 or 6 with the DIP switch set away from Normal.


EDIT: OK, so all Nova pedals but the Nova Drive, which draws closer to 380mA!

can you power a line 6 dl4 in 5 and a nova delay in 6? or will that give you problems by pushing the mA?

Yes this should be fine. Each output is isolated and is independant of the other outlet, in this case 5&6.

What about a Nova Delay and a Nova Modulator? Can I do that, power both? According to the manual, each need about 300mA (12VDC). Thanks in advance!

We have recently found that the Nova Drive does draw more current than all the other Nova pedals... Its an overdrive, who would have guessed?!?!

So it appears that the Nova Drive can not be powered by a single output on the Pedal Power 2+.
