i found the MXR Smart gate perfect before i bought an amp with built in noise supression. I suggest checking it out!

I'd have to agree ^^ I really like mine. I haven't tried the MXR, but I've compared it to the Boss one and the Decimator is much better.

IMO, most of the time you wouldn't need one. if all that gain is causing noise, you're probably using too much for anyone to hear you, with both chords and single note definition.
#8
no my gain is on like 5-6. its not feedback, its just more of a hiss that i need to get rid of

Just because he has noise doesnt mean it's coming from gain? Noise can come from pedal's processing, noisy patch cables, pedal power sources, or in the amp, or in the guitar or other cables from interference in the air

ISP decimator

Boss NS-2 does it's job, but for $25 more you can have the best one on the market.

I woudln't go for a Noise Gate unless you are using it for rhythm aggression, not reducing feedback and noise. Noise gates cut off your signal when the input drops below a certain level. When you have a bad noise problem and you crank the noise gate, you'll find chords sustaining for 5-6 seconds instead of 15-20. Noise reducers, the better they are, the more accurate they are at removing hum and not the guitar signal. They will reduce your feedback, hum, hiss, and buzz and only slightly affecting your signal.

Noise gates and suppressors are really the same thing, just a different name. The ISP Decimator is generally considered the best one on the market because it doesn't affect your tone when engaged, and it's got some fancy technology that doesn't chop off your sustain, but still gets rid of buzz and hum. Seriously, the ISP is exactly what you're looking for.

The ISP decimator is a noise reducer
It uses some magical technology to intelligently take out the noise with out affecting sustain
