  • Power Requirements

    After a few weeks of creating voiceprints on the VPDI, it's time to put this thing to work live. I'm building my rig which includes some additional pedals and will power them with the Strymon Zuma. It would be helpful to know the exact power requirements for the pedal. The fixed outputs on the Zuma all provide 500ma, but it also has two selectable outputs with 9, 12, and 18 volts.

    I have three guitars with three different pickups and the VPDI is a game-changer. This, in my opinion, is the pinnacle for the team at Baggs and every player out there who's been chasing their instruments' true acoustic tone. Can't wait to see what's next!

    Hey Will,
    I am glad to hear that the VPDI is working so well for you. I definitely agree that it's a game-changer!

    The Zuma is designed for digital pedals so that should work fine with the DI. We usually recommend using the DI on its own power supply for noise isolation, but the Zuma shouldn't have issues.

    As for the power requirements, we recommend a 500mA minimum, at 9V. So you should be good to go. If you do experience any noise issues while using the Zuma, let me know.

      Hey Caleb,
      Thanks for the response. I'm in the process of testing several techniques with both creating voiceprints with various measurement and studio mics as well as a variety of pedals in the EFX loop, including all of the Align series except the EQ. When I have some real qualitative results, I'll be posting them. So far, I've failed to get a negative result, although when using a reference mic, you have to use most or all of the pad on the input. There are some really decent and inexpensive USB mics, many with lightning connectors, which may be useful and provide users a lot of fun and great results to boot.

      Stay Tuned,

      Will
