According to the manual, the voodoo lab Hex “Receives MIDI commands, and provides phantom power for Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro foot controllers.” on midi in.
“If you are using a Voodoo Lab foot controller, such as Ground Control Pro, it can
be phantom powered from HEX. Phantom power is provided over pins 1 and 3 of
HEX’s MIDI IN. Make sure to use a MIDI cable with all 5 pins wired. These are
often labeled “5-pin active.”
Could this possibly be hazardous for midi controllers that don’t use phantom power, such as the morningstar mc’s?
I found this discussion in a google search and amazingly this is the EXACT thing I’m researching. I’d like to use two Voodoo Labs HEX switchers with the MC8. @James will any 5 to 7 pin cable work or does it need to have the AC adaptor like the one in the Amazon link above? If it needs to have the AC adaptor, what exactly does that plug into? I’m a little confused on how to get the phantom power to work between the HEX and the MC8. Thank you!
