Boss NS-2 help!

So i think this is the correct place to be asking this, if not, someone let me know!

Anyway, I have a boss NS-2 which as you will probably know is a Noise suppressor.

My pedal chain goes like this:

Guitar > Boss TU-2 > Boss NS-2 > Blackstar HT-DistX > JCM600

The problem i'm having is that its actually creating alot more noise. When turned on there is a slight high pitched buzz/whirring noise. This sound is greatly increased with the addition of a distortion pedal (I have a Blackstar HT Dist-X on separate power supplies).

I have tried using it on its own and going through the amps distortion and i get the same issue.

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks

I'm surprised at the extra noise, mine doesn't do that, although I do notice a very slight volume boost with it on, but I put this down to the buffer in it. I'd defiantly try it after the distortion pedal, that way this extra noise shouldn't be boosted by the the distortion pedal as well as hopefully taking some of the noise from the dirt pedal. Thats what it's designed for. Dirt pedal are usually the nosiest on a board.
Also try running it in the X-Pattern method, if you have an effects loop.

Sorry i didn't specify in the original post, i have tried it in different positions.

but it also has the issue when its on its own direct into the amp. So i think something is wrong with the electronics in the pedal?

It is probably due to bad or corrupt power supply. Try using batteries and see if it still creates noise. If it does, then electronics in pedal are fucked up.
