    Wondering If it would be possible to mod my powerball in such a way to control my noisegate externally eg a footswitch?

    I am sure some of you gear generals out there will have an answer for me!


    Cheers:hbang:

    Buy an external noisegate and just use that? It would most probably save a lot of time and money :)

    personally i wouldnt even know where to begin but anything is possible.
    for the ammount of effort / time / money id would cost, id say do the above post and get a seperate external one.

    Why would you want to do this anyways just out of curiosity?

    Old Powerball i assume? New ones have a jack on the back to controll FX-Loop and Noisegate.

    It would be possible and fairly easy if you can get the parts and know how to do it.

    Which you don't.

    So buy an external one :)

    i also find the gates on the ENGL's aren't very efficient as apposed to ISP noise gates

    Yeah It is the old (better sounding) Powerball :D haha
    It was more a passing thought than anything, As I have a mate that would be capable of such a mod. However he is a cunt aha and would rip the shit out of me for suggesting something no do-able !

    haha cheers fellas

    Then i would buy the ISP anyway - you get away cheaper AND have the better Noisegate on hand. ;)
