    When I put my Mooer pedal on my Power Supply with the rest of my pedals everything has less power.
    I'm not sure why. Isn't the Mooer good with 9 volts?

    How did you detect this?

    I got rid of my mooer pedals when I realized they aren't actually true bypass. They aren't buffer either. They are "junk" bypass... My new term.

    Less power? Or a volume issue? Impedance can always be an issue with pedals. My Yellow Comp didn't play nice with some of my pedals. A separate buffer fixed the problem.

    A digital pedal will draw a lot more than an analog one.

    I have a Mooer Tender Octaver MkII in my "drawer of shame". I took a lot of time researching it, spent too much on it, AND it doesn't play nice on a pedal board at all. It can do a real nice "little brown church" organ sound, however, so I've kept it jic. No more Mooers for me.

    I bet it's a digital.

    Depending on the digital pedal and power supply used, some pedals may freak out some.
