power a Roger Linn Adrenalinn 3 from a CAE MC403

swapping stuff out in my rack at the moment and I can't figure out if / how I can power a Roger Linn Adrenalinn 3 from an CAE/MXR MC403 rack mount power supply.

Found some info on the voodoo labs PP2 and using a voltage doubler, but I can't quite work out if it's possible (I'm sure it is) with what cable/outlets ?

Anyone work this out, I can see a high draw of 500 mamp, but it's 9v dc - so a standard 9v power out on this looks like it should work, but doesn't.

What am I missing ?

    It doesn't look to me as though you can do it.

    The Adrenalinn III needs 9V DC @500mA+

    None of the DC outputs on the CAE goes above 200mA.

    Voltage doubling won't work. You need more current, which it doesn't have.

    To complicate matters, you'd also need a polarity-reverse cable, as the pedal needs centre +ve.
    I think, therefore.... I... ummmm........

    so that was my initial thought until I read about the voodoo lab pp2 which has the same spec (from what I read) as the CAE, but it just needs as you say, a custom cable

    interesting.

    appreciate the thoughts

    If it's the Pedal Power 2 PLUS you're meaning, then yes, it has 2x 9V DC 250mA outputs, which could be fitted with a current-doubling and polarity reverse cable to give what you need.
