So I was looking at the specs - It seems to output +/- 12v - Am i right about that? - So you'd likely need to adjust slightly for implementing with any modular equipment. As a massive utility for $300 it's not bad looking at all.

From the FAQ Page: https://the-analog-thing.org/wiki/The_Analog_Thing_FAQ
If THAT is powered by USB, i.e., by 5 V-, then how is it possible that its machine unit is physically ±10 V?
THAT uses a TBA 2-0522 DC/DC converter, which turns a 4.5 V- to 5.5 V- input into a ±12 V output.
Can you, for example, take a signal into this and run it through to output to other modules?

No, the power supply is +/-12v, the operating voltage is +/-10v, and the outputs are voltage divided so they vary from 10v downward; with the trigger out being 5v.

Thank you luchog! I think I'm gonna get one.

Anyone using this with banana gear (C-L, etc)? Looks like it'd play great with some of my gear, but I'm wondering how grounding works, and how one gets around the whole negative voltages thing.
