hey UG,

first question is. Is a Noise Compressor the same thing as a Noise Gate?

If so what do i set the Sustain, Attack, Tone, ect to stop feedback? I know nothing about compressers

a compressor and a noise gate are completely different things

a compresser evens out the volume of everything you play, amplifies quiet notes and quietens loud ones.

a noise gate reduces hum and hiss. i think theres also a difference between noice supressors and noise gates

your sustain/attack/tone controls wont get rid of noise but your GT-8 should have noise reduction built in i think
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

The compressor isnt going to do anything for feedback. Thats a noise gate or supressors job.

actually, a compressor is kind of the opposite of a noise gate when you think about it. the compressor makes everything the same volume, while a noise gate makes the lower volume sounds even less audible.
