wanted to let you guys know that this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BV8WKCP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 adapter comes with a barrel adapter that fits the PSU exactly and works. That adapter is the wrong polarity however
AE Modular or Behringer Neutron (as a semi modular gateway) teamed with a Beatstep would be my budget suggestions.
If you get a power supply then you won’t have the PSU issues, it only happens with batteries, the filter slew isn’t really that much of an issue when modulating the filter IMHO.
It is a really nice sounding system and a good entry point to modular, it isn’t perfect but it certainly is a lot of fun and nice and compact, I don’t regret buying mine, I think TE will sort the battery power issue.
Damn also have the same issue with the battery pack whine…
@skeletonmeat are you recommending that adapter you linked or did you need to buy a separate adapter that had the correct polarity?
I finally got the external power to work. It indeed was just a matter of getting the correct plug.
I bought this one from amazon and it worked without any problems:
Finally got a response from TE with an RMA… we’ll see if anything happens now
Update: Got a shipping notification for a replacement PSU. From the turnaround time, it’s almost certainly going to have the same issues, so I’ll stick to wall-powered.
