Heh! I like that!
You can power the MIDIbox2 from any output on a Pedal Power 2+ with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal using one of the standard all black barrel cables.
Thanks for replying. I figured so.
The problem is, remember I was out of black cables. I ordered 1 more to use for the Reverb pedal itself. And then I realized I had to order the midi box...............and then, I realized that neither of the Empress products were sold with a wall wart. And then I decided to splice the black ends from two separate red cables together.....and then I tested them, and found that in fact, on the red to black cables, the black ends are out of phase, and it is the red ends that are "normal". So, now my empress midi thingy has a "custom made red/red cable that functions like a standard black/black", with the braided shield connected to the barrel (sleeve), and the center wire conductor connected to the tip.
Internet ordering be damned!
