Hi everyone, it’s a shame that I have to make an entrance on this forum with a thread about this but I’m just an insecure person when it comes to these things.
I moved to London and I will be here for around 6 months. I miss my little studio back in my country so I went to the internet to see if I could find a simple synth that I could make some noise with, and hopefully put out some tunes with the stuff that I brought with me.
The result couldn’t be better. I found about mutable-instruments and this great community within it.
Unfortunately, I still don’t have any soldering skills, nor circuitry ones. Hopefully, when I get back to my country, I’ll just buy my first soldering equipment and start the DIY part of my life.
Lucky me, I found a local pre-assembled shruthi-1 seller and I bought one with a 4-Pole Mission filter, which apparently turns out to be a little beast of an instrument and not a simple one like I said before.
Well, enough talk.
I’ll grab it tomorrow morning at the post-office and bought some DC adaptors yesterday. I bought a regulated 9V, switchable polarity, 600mA - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-6w-switched-mode-acdc-fixed-voltage-9v-power-supply-l67bq - and an unregulated, 6 output voltages, switchable polarity - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/maplin-17w-switched-mode-acdc-multi-voltage-power-supply-l06br - which now seems like the dumbest purchase ever. Both are from Maplin.
Should I really be concerned about the regulated 9V outputting more than 9V ?
The reason I bought the unregulated one, was to use it at 7.5V (it says 7.5V 2A on the back) if the other one was not to be trusted as a “really regulated” one. Am I paranoid ?
Also, both come with 8 power tips, I’ll just try to fit them into the Shruthi and only the 2.1mm will enter, or there’s any other way I can make sure it’s the 2.1mm ? They all have different colours.
Sorry for the newbie questions,
