Presently I have a Boss NS2 running in a X configuration with my Dark Terror and am happy with the results. I run a TS808 modified SD-3 as a boost and a VFE White Horse optical compressor. Signal chain is Guitar>>>Compressor>>>SD-3>>>NS-2(in)>>> NS-2(send)>>>AMP(in)>>>Amp(FX-send)>>>NS-2(return)>>> NS-2(out)>>>Delay>>>Reverb>>>Amp(FX-return) joy The NS-2 Threshold is at roughly 3oclock and the Decay is set to minimum. Both modes of the pedal produce a similar result in terms of noise suppression. It works and works well but is not quite FAST enough at gating the signal so I want to add a second noise pedal for palm mutes (too old for Djent, I palm mute at the bridge!). I know the options are an MXR Smart Gate, an ISP Decimator 2 or a second NS-2. The MXR or the ISP would be BEFORE the compressor or the second NS-2 would be before the compressor but have both the comp and the OD in the NS-2 loop: Signal chain is Guitar>>>1st NS-2(in)>>> NS-2(send)>>> Compressor>>>SD-3>>>1st NS-2(return)>>> 2nd NS-2(in)>>>2nd NS-2(send)>>> AMP(in)>>>Amp(FX-send)>>>NS-2(return)>>> NS-2(out)>>>Delay>>>Reverb>>>Amp(FX-return) more joy Has anyone done this and have results? REMEMBER the idea of the idea of the additional gate is to gate not to supress. Please dont just tell me to use a Decimator G string because your mate knew somebody who once said they were the best... I am after the opinions of those that have run multiple gates in the method described or similar. Thanks in advance!
