Pedalboard compatible with Voodoo Lab? [R]

3 years, 10 months agoCreamyGoobeard posted submission on guitarpedals.
April 6, 2016

I currently have a Diago hardcase pedalboard, and I'm looking to get one that's on an incline and has room for my Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus underneath. It's taking up too much room, and my board is over crowded.

I know that Pedaltrain used to be very Voodoo Lab friendly, but apparently they're not anymore, and it's next-to-impossible to find any of the old ones in stores. I suspect this is because Voodoo Lab is coming out with they're own boards, but I really don't feel like waiting for a year.

Another problem is that I have the bulky power adapter for a DigiTech Whammy, and even with the old Pedaltrains, I'd probably have to strap a power strip on the back or something. Are there any currently available boards that can accommodate my power source underneath AND continue to let me plug my Whammy in the back of it?

(Please no suggestions for just building my own, I lack the skill, and more crucially, the time)

I have mine mounted on my novo 32 just fine, with the brackets I got from Sweetwater. The courtesy outlet is accessible, but won't fit a wall wart type plug unless you get an small extension to rotate the plug, something like this:

I have the 4x4 plugged into the pp2+ and it fits just fine for that.

Another option is to just mount it with dual lock, it won't budge and you can place it wherever you want underneath.

Travel Power Strips... Necessary? [R]

3 years, 10 months agothatsunshinegirl posted submission on travel.
April 3, 2016

I've had some people suggest bringing a small travel sized power strip on my trip to Europe, citing the lack of outlets in hostels. Now I only have a camera and a tablet and I don't see much need for it (Both rated for EU power and I have adaptor)... But I haven't done a backpacking trip overseas before, so maybe I'm wrong?

Do you guys think this is a must bring, or a waste of valuable backpack space?

April 3, 2016

Thanks! That one is on my short list to buy, but I wish I could find a 220v power strip with USB ports, too. The only one I could find was the Belkin Surge Protector, but it's only listed as 120v. Would you happen to know of one?

To those with an Elgato Capture Card [R]

3 years, 11 months agoDylanIsWhite posted submission on xboxone.
Feb. 27, 2016

So I recently picked one up and I was wondering what everyone's set up is. I was wondering if there is a way to have the capture card plugged into the Xbox one via HDMI and the TV plugged into the Xbox as well. The way I have it set up right now my Xbox only displays to my TV if the capture card is on, meaning I need it plugged into my PC and my PC on all the time, which I wouldn't like to do.

I would like it so that when I just want to game, it shows up on my TV and when I want to capture all I have to do is plug the capture card into my PC and record.

Sorry if this makes no sense, I am finding it very hard to word, but any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Get a USB outlet adapter and plug the Elgato into that. They come with phones, or you can just buy them pretty cheap at any electronic store, or on Amazon/Ebay.


My trip report [R]

4 years, 3 months agobtgeekboy posted submission on JapanTravel.
Nov. 11, 2015

I thought I’d finally write up my report on my recent trip (October 18-November 2).

My itinerary: Tokyo (6 nights) > Kyoto (4 nights) > Tottori (1 night) > Hokuei (Gosho Aoyama Manga Factory) and Osaka (1 night) > Himeji > Tokyo (2 nights)

Overall, I had a fantastic time. I shopped too much, ate a lot of great food (which I won’t go into here—suffice it to say, I miss it), and had some interesting experiences.

I had been concerned about communication difficulties and other issues one faces in a foreign land, but honestly, it was surprisingly easy—certainly no harder than visiting any foreign country or city. The people were all very nice and helpful—sometimes “too” helpful. I was regularly given English menus at meals, and sometimes instructions. I had a chef straight-up lean over the counter to pour more dipping sauce into my bowl because I hadn’t put in enough (dude, calm down), and another waiter poured out my soy sauce and tea for me at a kaiten-sushi when I sat down. One guy walked me from one end of Shinjuku Station to the other, but he wanted spare change in return, so that was kind of a mixed bag.

I’d heard stories about people being stared at or people avoiding them on trains, but I had no issues there. The most looks I ever got were at Himeji, of all places. Even in Tottori and Hokuei, which don’t see the sort of tourist traffic that Kyoto does, no one seemed to give a damn that I was there. It was almost frustrating.

I chatted with a woman over breakfast in Kyoto (she was there for a reunion with old school friends) and got semi-hit on by salarymen in a bar. Good times.

One minor surprise was the lack of soap in public bathrooms—I knew about the towels, but not the soap. However, I did appreciate that they often marked which toilets were squat and which were western on the doors. Another extremely minor surprise was hearing the crows—on an anime show I watch, the crows make this horrible noise, and I always thought it was a bad “fake crow” sound for TV. No, they actually make that noise…it amused me.

I got a pocket wifi and hated it. The next time, I'll try a SIM card.


I really liked Tokyo. My hotel was near Shinjuku Station (god, that train station!), and I visited most of the “usual” places, including Shibuya, Harajuku, Akihabara, Asakusa, the Ghibli Museum, Ueno Park, and Kappabashi (to buy fake food). I also took a day trip to Hakone. I went up the Government Building (I didn’t visit the Skytree). I visited the National Museum and the Edo-Tokyo Museum, and I briefly visited the sumo stadium. I went to the Robot Restaurant, and I hung around Shibuya on Halloween for a little while (then got the heck out of there). I went to Kabukiza to see one act of a play (technically, it was two short acts) and visited the gallery upstairs. I really enjoyed that. On my last day, I went to Odaiba and saw ASIMO. I then trekked out to Yokohama to visit the ramen museum.

As for disappointments, I didn’t make it to a restaurant I wanted to try, and my trip to Hakone was a bit of a mess. Mt. Fuji wasn’t out (although I saw it from trains later), and my efforts to try to prioritize catching it if and when it appeared meant that I missed most of the sights there. Still, it’s a nice area, and it was a nice day out. I also didn’t get the “right” film at the Ghibli Museum, heh, but the one I saw was still very cute. Also, I had problems with my camera and bought a new one, so I ended up taking pictures with two cameras for the rest of the trip.


I visited nearly all the major tourist haunts in Kyoto, including Nara. I also attended a dinner with geiko (aka geisha), where I lost at a drinking game and chatted with some visitors from the UK and Spain. I went to Arashiyama and fed monkeys at the monkey park. I used the famous fountain at Kiyomizudera, despite the long line (I really got into using the fountains as I went around and was frustrated at seeing other tourists pass stuff like that up). I hiked up Fushimi Inari, which was tiring. I know some people say they get sick of temples and shrines after a while, but I never did. I loved visiting them. Kinkakuji is almost sickeningly beautiful, especially in the morning sun, but I also really enjoyed Ginkakuji, which has a fantastic garden. As for Nara, I don’t think I’d go again, so to speak—it was nice enough but not exciting. The deer are noisy.

Kyoto was where I really felt like I was running into other tourists, and I came across people of all stripes. I think the most common language I heard among western tourists was French. Anyway, the upside of going in October is you miss the summer crowds. The downside is you get the school groups instead—oh god, the school groups. The children were all terribly cute and relatively well behaved, but it made it very hard to really relax and enjoy things.

I will admit that I was quite disappointed in the Kyoto transportation network and Kyoto Station. Maybe I should have been using the buses more, like most people do, but I saw lines 100 people deep for those buses one day, so that wasn’t very tempting. Suffice it to say, I think they could do a better job given that they’re the second most popular tourist city in the country.


I’ll leave this off because it’s really only of interest to people who like Gosho Aoyama’s work, and it’s been covered in another subreddit.


I hung around Dotonbori and ate way, way too much. It’s a really fun place to hang out at night.


Himeji Castle is very beautiful, but I almost regret going up it. It was a Saturday and absolutely packed. There were hundreds of people waiting to go up and down some very iffy stairs (they were quite narrow and too slippery). There’s really nothing inside, so you go through all that effort and kind of wonder why. I’m sure when it’s less crowded, it’s more worth it, but as it was, it was just something to “get through” and escape from. Side note, the castle had the highest admission fee of anywhere I went.

Anyway, I'll leave off there. As I said, I enjoyed the heck out of it and recommend it to anyone. I already know places I'd like to visit on future trips. I just wish it wasn't so far away and expensive (in a general sense--I know the yen's weak).

That's basically the opposite experience of mine. I plugged mine into an external battery, tossed it in my backpack, and didn't think about it until I got back to my hotel/etc for the night. I wish I'd had more daily data, but it was fine otherwise. Where did you rent yours from / do you recall what model it was?

I also carry one of these when I travel - I only need one outlet for everything. For Japan, I stuck a common 3 to 2 prong adapter on and called it good.

Here is my small list of items I make sure are first in my bag:

  1. A compact surge protector with USB ports. When you have a hotel room full of people that need to charge their devices, outlets fill up fast. One of these can be a huge help. Here is the one I got: Belkin 3 Outlet Charger

  2. External battery charger. Phones run out of power quickly when you are using them to take pictures, scan codes, looks at maps, call, text, play games. We have all been there and while it is getting a little easier to find charging stations, you have to devote time to wait. There are some great chargers on the market these days, but here is the one I picked up about three years ago: External Battery

  3. Line games. Lines are a part of Pax, deal with them by turning them into another fun event. A small game will allow you to meet your new friends around you and pass the time. Here are some of the games I love to bring: Get Bit, Pirate Fluxx, Spot it.

I wanted to buy this:

Yesterday it was at $14, decent deal Today it's $16

I don't know if this is in general, but it gave me the impression that the real markdowns were minimal with respect to the day to day prices at Amazon.

I also checked another item (biobidet attachment) which was $36 yesterday and it is the same price today. It seems to me that Prime Day was just a way to advertise already existing (excellent) prices.

Do you guys have the same impression?

July 6, 2015

I also travel a lot, if you don't have any of these already I can send specific amazon links to ones I use.

Here are some things I like:

  • Small tablet (I use a small windows tablet to browse the internet or play hearhtstone in my hotel or at the airport where I don't want to struggle with a full laptop)
  • TSA approved bag. My bag is sweet in general, but the TSA zipper makes security WAY faster
  • 4-wheel roller luggage makes airports and parking lots much more convenient
  • I carry an assortment of usb chargers. Some to bring with me to offices, some to set and forget in the hotel room on arrival and just pack up when I leave. The auto-collapsing ones are sweet. (these are awesome)
  • PURELL CLIP. I get the disposable hand sanitizer bottles that clip to my bag so I am able to constantly use it during airport/airplane/office times to try to get sick less.
  • Reusable coffee cup and water bottle. My bag has 2 drink holders, I use these constantly to keep coffee hot and keep water with me at all times.
  • NICE HEADPHONES. I couldn't get through airports without jamming out and reading the whole time. (I think these right now, but they are tight on my head)
  • battery pack. Does your phone die when you travel all day, use it at the airport and then use it as a GPS? get a rechargeable battery pack for your bag and charge that thing up.

Things I want to try:

  • packing cubes -- it seems like this would make packing/repacking much quicker
  • compressing bags -- it seems like this would let me pack more stuff in my carry on for longer trips, but they seem inconvenient to use for the return trip.
  • fancy/comfortable ear plugs

Too much electronics? [R]

Feb. 15, 2015

Hi guys. Been lurking this sub and /r/travel a lot but finally made an account.

I'm going to SEA in about 1½ weeks and after reading a lot of the pack lists and posts on this sub, it kind of feels like I might be bringing too much stuff and, especially electronics. Here's what I'm bringing:

  • Amazon Kindle (to avoid the weight from books)
  • Upper range point-and-shoot camera (to take pictures of all the cool stuff I'm hoping to see)
  • GoPro camera (Like the former but videos..)
  • Asus Transformer book 10" (Mainly to store my videos and photos)
  • External hard drive (Same as above)
  • Headphones
  • Smartphone

Am I overthinking this or am I really bringing too much electronics? What would you skip or add to this?

Sorry if it's a very uninteresting post but it's getting closer and I want to decide what to bring asap.

Feb. 15, 2015

I travel with just smartphone. It works as a camera. It works a GPS. It works as reading device. It works as a way to communicate with people home. It can work as a lifeline, if needs be.

So yeah, I would skip everything except smartphone and a headphones. It depends on what smartphone it is, though - 64 GB one, and a few bucks of Dropbox subscription could carry you through much cheaper and safer.

Though, if you carry that much electronics, get a powerbank and a something like this: [1] it's pretty annoying when there's just one outlet.

Hi guys, I'm going on a 3 month long business trip and will be living in hotels on weekdays, essentially, out of my bag. Want to treat myself, so I'm wondering if you have any bifl suggestions.

I already have a bag, got myself an aeropress and am eyeing up a grid-it. While I know these are not necessarily bifl, they should last me a while.

Anything to make my life easier, etc is welcome

Feb. 4, 2015

These are what I used in a 9 month stint traveling. I have since given them to my fiance:

Belkin Power Plug - I use a 3 foot cable and a 10 foot cable for the USB ports.

Cocoon Silk Travel Liner - If you're going in and out of hotels, and you know they're going to be iffy quality, use this to protect yourself from potentially unwashed sheets. Also keeps you warm if your sheets are super thin.

Anker Slim Battery - External battery. Charges most phones 2-3 times.

Grid-its are nice, but IMO, I actually like these better: Cable/device managers - I have three grid-its, and yes- they're nice, but very inefficient at organizing and stowing.

What are some the things you couldn't live without...I guess this could extend outside travel. Maybe something I wouldn't think of?

-Would it be really awesome if I had an iPad even if I have a laptop? I see this a lot at the airport, seems kind of redundant...

-Luggage...what's a good efficient way to pack laptop, clothes and suits? I assume checking a bag is not preferred? Leaves you with 1 carry on and a laptop bag usually..

-New suit? I have a straight black suit and a blue blazer w/ gold buttons, plus a good stash of dress pants and dress shirts. Should I expand to include a pinstripe or other more "casual" suit than just a straight black?

a 3 to 1 power strip, this is great for when you can find an outlet and need to charge multiple things or when you find an outlet and someone else is using it. simply ask to plug your power strip in and share. this model also has USB

I plugged my surface charger into a socket when I heard several pops. I turned just in time to see several jetties of sparks before the smell of burning plastic reached me. It was still sparking as I unplugged it. Not sure if it was damaged like that before this happened or not, it certainly wasn't like that earlier in the day. Thankfully I was near enough to react before it set something on fire, but now I'm without my surface pro until I can get a new charger...

This contest has CLOSED. Thanks for all your wonderful entries, guys! I'll announce the winner within the next 24 hours. <3

I had the good fortune of finding a partially used Best Buy gift card in one of the boxes I still hadn't unpacked from my move last year. Unfortunately, I a) am no longer anywhere near a Best Buy, and b) don't badly want anything from Best Buy anyway? So I was thinking about what to use it on, and then figured...HEY. Maybe someone at RAoA might want it!

And an idea was born. <3

Don't forget to read the instructions carefully. Please also note that this giveaway does NOT necessarily require your physical address.

  1. Guess how much is on the gift card. Whoever is closest to the correct amount AND has fully completed the other two tasks will be the winner.

  2. Link to the item that has been on your oldest Amazon wishlist the longest, and what date you added it.
    (For example, my main wishlist is also a newly-created one, so that's not the one I would look to for my oldest item. My original wishlist has the item that has been there the longest, from December 2010.)

  3. Tell me one thing you really like about yourself. :) Big or small, physical or intangible, it doesn't matter. As long as it's something you think is awesome about YOU.

This contest will close at noon (CST) November 11th, because one of the best birthday gifts I can give myself is the gift of giving! Yay!

May the odds be ever in your favor, etc. <3 <3 <3

So I've Lost My Charger... [R]

As the title suggests, I have misplaced my Vita charger. So, tell me, how do I go about replacing it? I've looked online and found that the USB cable and the AC Adapter are sold separately, 10 dollars a piece. Is it possible to charge with the USB cable alone, or do I need to buy the AC Adapter as well? Like, can I just plug the USB plug into any phone charger and there would be no difference, like per se, an Apple AC plug? I've heard mixed cases about this working and not working, so I'm not to sure. I've also heard that it is possible to turn off the Vita and use a computer to charge it. So can I make-do with just the USB plug? Or would it be safer and easier just to cough up an extra 10 bucks for the AC Adapter? Help me out here.

The Vita charger is a standard USB charger, you can buy it for like $2, but I suggest you upgrade to a better charger like this.

The problem is the USB cable which is proprietary and isn't necessary compatible with every charger, there is a small pin on the cable, so you may need to scratch it a little bit. The cable itself is not cheap either. The original cable goes for $10. You can get OEM cable for $2 example. IMO, since you are only going to use the cable for charging, don't overpay.

Looking for a lightweight outlet adapter, going from US prongs to Europe, Asia, and Latin America. [R]

Doing an /r/travel search popped up a bunch of posts from 1+ year ago, and there didn't seem to be a particular consensus. Is there a brand or adapter model that people have really liked? Durability and versatility are the highest priorities, but close behind is not taking up too much space / traveling light.

On the other hand, if one adapter will cover more devices that would be great, because my girlfriend and I could simply share one. Or should we just get a lightweight adapter and use a splitter? What's been successful for you in the past?

Thanks guys.

Be careful about using a splitter. The splitter itself has to be 220-compatible.

For example, I have this Belkin travel power splitter but it cannot be used outside North America.

EDIT: What I have is a bunch of these travel adpaters. They are not particularly small, but they are cheap. They will work with any device that is 120/220 compatible, like most chargers for electronics (but probably not your alarm clock radio).

For my backpacking trip: Water bottle, packing cubes, travel wash/soaps, and other stuff I'm considering getting. Help is appreciated! [R]

I own an Osprey Atmos, it's a 50L one and I'll be traveling around 3 months staying in hostels, doing maybe day hikes so not really hiking that much. I'm thinking about this bottle to have

The 18 ounce version should be fine, right? Poly loop cap version.

Also looking at getting this:

To pack clothes, underwear, etc. Making it easier to have organized inside the Atmos. Good idea? Bad idea? Something better than this?

What type of wash bag should I get to put toiletries, soap etc on? And while we're on that, which soaps, detergents, etc are good for traveling? I've heard about laundry paper for washing but I know nothing about those.

For packing in general, this thread on Flyertalk is great.

I took 3, as the eBags packing cubes come in 3. The biggest one held all of my clothes. The medium one has cords, chargers, adapters, etc. The small one has a pair of shoes. I don't have too much stuff, so if your stuff can't fit in all the cubes (more or less), just fiddle with it. Some people use one for dirty clothes. I just let my dirty clothes float around my bag and use it for padding and to take up irregular space.

Also, I forgot to include this in my other posts: Get an adapter for the EU sockets. If you charge lots of things (e.g. cellphone, laptop, iPad, traveling partner's stuff), you'll want a travel extension socket thing. I have this one and I love it.

Many of us suggest to get some dummy mail sent using your name before doing an SR order, and I usually tell them about /r/TheBestOfAmazon.

If you want some ideas for dummy mail that might actually be useful, check out this subreddit. There's some good stuff.
