Choosing the right PSU for Vestax PMC mixers

Vestax mixers – not just iconic, but the first foray into DJ’ing gear for many.
But a minefield if you lose or break the power supply unit – a lot of them look alike, but take different power supplies. There are several different power specs, and in many cases the power requirement isn’t clearly written on the rear panel. So how do you know which to get? myVolts is here to help!

New white myVolts 5-way power splitter for Korg Volca

After the warm reception our sunny yellow Roland Boutique 5-way power cable got in the spring, we thought the Korg Volca 5-way splitter cable was overdue a smartening up.

So we talked to Luke Edwards and Adam Whittle from Korg when they were here on a visit to our Dublin office, asked them what they reckoned for a new colourway for the Volca power splitter.

Powering the LaCie F.A. Porsche external hard drive

There’s an unfamiliar-looking power input on the back with holes and pins, so you’re not sure what power supply to buy to power it up, check it works, and get your files?
Everything’s gonna be OK, myVolts is here to help!

Atari Punk Console workshop w/ Sam Battle (Look Mum No Computer)

The Atari Punk Console – what a great name. It evokes lovely lo-fi glitchy sounds, from cheap components, knocked together with a DIY sensibility. I’ve read and heard lots about this famous circuit, so it was great to get down and dirty and put one together myself – under the guidance of the lovely Sam “Look Mum No Computer” Battle.
