Is it grounded properly? Turning down the gain would help. For a noise gate pedal you can't beat an ISP decimator.

Yea could be a grounding issue. Try getting it tested just incase

I'd recomend a noise gate but doesn't the cube have one built in (not one that affects it much but still has one)

Does it buzz when your not plugging into the cabinet?

EDIT: Wait are you plugging the cube into the crate head and then into the crate cabinet? Or are you pluging the cube into the crate cabinet?

cube into the head then the cab, the cube wont power the cab.
when i play with just the cube its fine, but when its thru the crate, (when i need to be louder) it all goes to hell. so where should i put a noise gate? (isp or boss???)

well the thing is that the cube is the tone i want, and the crate is basically just amplifing that.
so just need a temporary fix until i can get a head i really like

well ya, but the settings on my cube are modeled after a mesa....so it'll take me abt 15 years to be able to afford it. ive been looking into marshalls alot tho but again, i dont have the kinda money needed for a good head (jcm8/900 or recto)

You can get an F-30 for around 500 bucks. Definitely mesas stealth amp. I've also heard they were replaced with the express because they were cutting into recto sales. Don't know about the truth in that, but they are nice sounding amps if you can find one.
