Since I have quite a noisy rig I bought the noise gate and I wasn't pleased with the diagram which came with the manual since my rig was still noisy. Now my question is will it sound right if I connect all my stomp boxes through the effects loop of my amp and the connect my guitar to the noise gate then to the input of the amp?
Can you pinpoint where the noise is coming from? Pedals, amp, etc.
No, I'd try fx out>pedals>NS2>fx in. that should eliminate the hum if it's coming from pedals. If that doesn't do it, try running it guitar>NS2>amp.
The buzzing seems to be coming from my bad monkey overdrive. My amp and 2 guitars are quiet on their own. I have a Randall Rh100 half stack, a shielded fender strat and a 1981 gibson es335.
