Yes. The included Gigrig generator won't power your pedals unless you also have a Gigrig distributor, isolator(s) and any other specific boxes for 18v, higher current draw etc that you might need. I power my G2 using the 500mA 9V output of my Truetone CS12 and use the other outputs to power the rest of my pedals. It works fine and fits with the current requirements specified in the manual. I couldn't stand the thought of multiple power supplies being required and it would have cost another £350+ to commit to the Gigrig modular power supply, which seemed like quite a lot after already shelling out for the G2.
I have no experience of G2s ...is this how it works and a wee question for y'allall your pedals are in the ON position and from there brought into play by the G2.yeah?YeahHow does work then with dual pedal/channel ODs like the Kingsley Jouster that has two sides ...rhythm and solo channelsIf your OD pedal has midi capability (e.g. Chase Bliss fare) or has input for external switching via TRS (e.g. can't think of any) or you can run the two sides in independent loops (e.g. D&M drive) the G2 has you covered. Mostly though, including the Jouster by the looks of things, you just gotta put the dual pedal in reach of your boot so you can switch between the sides in the time honoured way.
TBH, the Gigrig generator and associated gubbins is the quietest set up I've ever had. Its also very lightweight - most of the alternatives weigh significantly more. Its also more scaleable - ie if you add more pedals, you just add more distributors/isolators etc. I love my G2/Gigrig power supply set up - and think its one of my best investments.
