noise gates get rid of the extra sound from a note, most likely from excess distortion.

What kind of guitar do you have? if its a Strat or anything with single coil, this is normal, and to get rid of it shield the guitar or get noisless pickups.

??? Don't know where you got that info. but it's wrong.


Yes a noise gate does do that,It cuts off certain frequencies or certain sounds when under a set level.

I think it potentially can depending on how you set it up. It'll like, basically stop sound going through to the amp when the input signal is below a certain volume. Rocktron Hush is the classic. Good for stop-start riffs
Thanks for reading

Anoise gate stops any noise coming from the guitar. If there is noise coming directly from the amp then you will hear it. not unless you have an effects loop the a hush in the effects loop keeps things quiet.
