Total modular new here, I don’t own anything yet but am planning on building a small 48HP set-up, based around Tides, VCVRack has swung things and I am taking the plunge.
I was hoping to use a Doepfer A-100 LC1 to house everything, probably including Branches, a Doepfer A-102 Diode filter (for now), some kind of spring reverb and a mixer, however, I just noticed on Dopfer’s page for the LC1 the following important note:
Important note: the load regulation of the power supply used in the A-100LC1 (A-100SSB) is not as good as the load regulation of the “big” A-100 power supplies (A-100PSU2, A-100PSU3 and the power supply of DIY kit #1). That’s why we recommend not to use the A-100LC1 with modules which are sensitive to supply voltage changes. In the first place VCOs are affected. If modules with changing loads (especially modules with LEDs) are installed together with VCOs pitch modulations may be the result. The A-100LC1 should be used only with modules which are immune to slight supply voltage changes (typically control modules like ADSR, LFO, random and most of the sound processing modules like VCFs or VCAs).
Does anyone know if Tides would be immune to supply voltage changes or should I get a different case and power supply?
According to Modular Grid, the power consumption / draw would be 154mA +12V, 90mA -12V, 0mA +5V.
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
