Are the screens on the Er-301 bright enough for outdoor use?

#1

I realize it will probably not be perfect but with a battery pack, are the screens bright enough to be used on a nice sunny day in the park?

this is a great question. I would like to know as well. My setup is unable to be moved at the moment or else I would test it. And I don’t live in an area where outdoor modular on the spot events are thrown.

Your line power and battery power should be no different from each other with providing the proper +/-12 voltages for eurorack… as well as specced higher than your system’s ma needs.

If they’re not, you’re putting your modules at great risk.

Yes of course. I was not worried with batteries affecting the screens, I was only asking how it is to read outside in the sun :slight_smile:

The sun was bright yesterday and test results confirm what @Flux302 posted. Even with polarised sunglasses it’s impossible to see any screen information, unless, you have some shade :sunglasses:
