I recently purchased the new M-Audio Hammer 88 USB keyboard controller, and was hoping I could also pair it up with my Organelle.
However, my concern is powering the Hammer 88. Typically, it would connect right to a computer using a USB chord and pull power from that source. I am worried that if I plug my keyboard into my Organelle, I might end up damaging the electrical components. M-Audio doesn’t explicitly state the power requirements for the Hammer 88, but sweetwater recommends a 9VDC 0.8A power supply if you don’t the Hammer 88 with a computer.
The organelle PSU is 9VDC 1.0A, so I don’t know if it would be able to power both the organelle and the Hammer 88.
Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? I can easily go out and buy a power source that can externally power the Hammer 88, but how can I guarantee that it still won’t damage the organelle when connected to both the organelle and the additional PSU?
