I want to take my paca into a forest to do a performance. Which means I'll want to power it by batteries. Has anyone tried to do this?
Myself and my collaborator-in-noise, Tom, have successfully made a battery powered eurorack modular with a bit of basic soldering and a DC-DC converter. We were powering 7 modules off a small 12V NiMH battery pack (on top of a hill, at night with no moon and a speaker suspended from a tree).
I want to try this with Kyma now. How much power does a paca use? The paca seems stateless, meaning it doesn't appear to save any kind of state between power cycles, does it? Would anything go disasterously wrong with the paca if the power failed? I'm guessing it doesn't generally write to its storage except during a firmware upgrade?
What would be the pitfalls to watch out for?
