Synth power buzz

Post by fingerbib2000 » Wed Apr 08, 2009 7:04 pm

Hi, there's a mad buzz coming from my Japanese import SCi synth. I think it's coming from the power supply due to the crappy transformer that came with it.
Anyone have similar problems due to using foreign voltage synths in the UK? can anyone recommend a decent power transformer 200v -> 100v?

Update:
so i got a Maplin converter off a guy in work that converts 220 -> 110v...my synth requires 100v though but he reckons he runs all his japan import consoles using this with no problems....
anyone know about this? would it be safe to run my synth using this box?
