From a modest, arty, start in 2006 with just a few events, Culture Night is now a mainstream staple, with happenings to please just about everybody. It rolls around at the end of September, bittersweetly marking the end of Summer, and the start of Autumn proper with over 4000 free events across more than 1600 venues all across Ireland. I’ve attended Culture Night for the last 4 years in myVolts hometown of Dublin, it’s lovely just to have a ramble round, take in the best of what our great city has to offer at free events, all across town. I’ve heard choirs, played with Eurorack synths, seen free plays, enjoyed poetry readings, walked around historical buildings, and much more. It’s just so … cultured!
And this year – myVolts is getting involved! If you’re in Dublin on 20th September 2019, we’d love if you were to drop by the myVolts Gear Swap event, it’ll be a blast. #myVoltsCultureNight
Ripcord‘s great for powering all kinds of devices from cheap USB power banks, as it gives clean, noise-free, hassle-free portable power.
However – you may find if you’re powering a device that draws very little current from a USB power bank, total current drawn in the region of less than 50mA, the device might shut down. This can happen with some guitar pedals and tuners, as they demand so little amperage, sometimes just a few milliamps.
This is a power bank problem, rather than a Ripcord problem – but we have a couple of solutions for you, so read on…
Power your gear from any USB port with Ripcord! Small synths like Korg Volcas, amps, keys, drum machine, effects pedals – Ripcord is compatible with thousands of devices.

16 years on and the Korg microKORG and is still as relevant as ever, it’s the best-selling synth / vocoder of all time, thanks to its affordable price, killer sounds, and all-round usability.
