    Can I use a one spot power supply, I am currently using it on a SD1, and when needed MXR mini chorus.
    I am a noob to the looper so I don’t want to damage it.
    The manual says PSA series.
    I will use the battery supplied with it till I find out. (I am not going to call GC)
    Cheers
    Mitch

    You’ll be fine as far as mA draw Mitch …… The One Spot is 1700mA …… If you have any unwanted noise it will be because the RC1 is digital and sometimes daisy chaining Solid State with Digital can do strange stuff …… probably no issues though

    Thanks Jon my friend, I haven’t really been using many different pedals as of late, and want to mess with this to get me back to playing a bit more.
    And didn’t want to jinx myself..
    Cheers

    Here’s some more knowitall garbage ……
    The Boss PSA adaptor is a Regulated 9Vdc Negative Pin Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS)
    The Boss ACA adaptor is an Unregulated 12vdc Neg Pin ( still SMPS )
    The True Tone OneSpot is a Regulated 9Vdc Negative Pin SMPS Rated at 1700mA
    (That’s 1.7 Amps aka A Lot ! )
    SMPS is awesome because it does not Ramp …… Ramping is really bad for Digital
    Just know you guys were dying to know

    I know your power supply, I think

    Good to go, that powered alot more then what you have going on, and did so quietly with no issues.

    My RC-3 needed it's own supply too.
    On a daisy chain it was very noisy.

    Yep.. That’s the case so often when mixing the different types of pedals with daisy chained power .. Many older pedals , especially True Bypass Analog ones..
    There can be some DC leakage which will cause pops when switching as well as send artifacts to the digital ones in the chain

    Well it has gotten me to play more.
    I am using it to play along with instead of having it hold a portion of the song together.
    Thanks buddy
