    Amp & Cab Block defaults vs. other cabs

    When I'm using stock cabs, I always use the Cali 4x12 and the 421 mic. Works best for me and my metal sound.

    Harsh crackling noise after palm mute

    @rager005 Any luck on your end? I've just found on my end that I was able to cut down a lot of the noise with having the HVAC off and also anything like a dishwasher, washer/dryer...anything really with a motor in it

    Harsh crackling noise after palm mute

    Yep same for me. Silent without guitar plugged in. Definitely seems to be something in the air being picked up as it changes when you move around, just haven't figured it out yet Definitely let me know if anything helps and I will do the same. The only hum blocker I tried so far was the EBTech Hum Eliminator but it unfortunately did not work.

    Harsh crackling noise after palm mute

    Is the noise there when your guitar is not plugged in? If it is only when the guitar is plugged in, I don't think a power conditioner is going to help. It hasnt helped me anyway and it sounds like we have very similar problems

    Harsh crackling noise after palm mute

    Sounds very similar to my problem. High gain, noise coming in after palm mutes or quick stops. Posted about it here except my examples are just the open sound and no playing. My issue seems to get much worse when the AC or Heat comes on. The only way I am finding to get around it so far is to put a hard gate between my boost pedal and the front of the amp. I'm just getting concerned I'm losing some toneor cutting off sustain at some point. Still trying to work it all out and find a perminent solution.

    Assistance with Hard Gate and High Gain

    I have been using the Input Gate for my high gain tones but I noticed that there is still some noise coming though and it does not clamp down quick enough. I started putting the hard gate after the Tube Screamer and it does the job really well. I just want to make sure I am setting the gates correctly. For some reason the whole open and close threshold is confusing for me. Which value should be higher than the other? Is it best to use a meter in a DAW to make sure I am setting the gate correctly and not choking off sustain or the beginning of the note? Typical Rhythm High Gain patch for me... Guitar > Tubescreamer > High Gain Amp > IR

    Help with noise (RFI?)

    Thanks..not sure that will work for me here. Everything is quiet on my end until a guitar is plugged in and then the noise changes as the guitar moves and is pointed in different directions

    Help with noise (RFI?)

    I have a Livewire PC1100 but maybe it just isn't cutting it.. Was it a buzz that happened without a guitar plugged in or was it a buzz that changed as you moved and turned your guitar around the room?

    It's the same with or without the USB connection.

    Help with noise (RFI?)

    Got the Hum Eliminator HE-2 in the mail today... didn't help. Moving the equipment to the opposite side of the house seemed to help some. Really seems to just be an issue with the AC, heat or now noticing the washer and dryer are on. The guitars are really picking up some sort of interference in the air. I'm going to be trying at my buddies house this weekend where I have used before... I know it's something here at home though cause it was never an issue at his place.

    Help with noise (RFI?)

    I am having an bit of an issue with noise/buzz in my home studio, but it is only when a guitar is plugged in. It also seems to be the worst when the AC or Heat is on in the house. It happens with all my guitars, both passive and active pickups. I bought a new Mogami Gold cable to make sure it wasn't my cables but the issue continues. Here is my current set up: Guitar > Line 6 Helix > Yamaha HS8's (Helix and HS8's are plugged into Livewire PC1100 Power Conditioner) Everything is silent before a guitar is plugged into the input of the Helix or an amplifier. I'm trying to figure out if the following products would help with the issue or not but I'm not sure what exactly this noise is... RFI, EMI, etc? Noise Harvester - https://www.psaudio.com/products/noise-harvester/ Hum Eliminator HE-2 - http://www.ebtechaudio.com/hedes.html Here are the sound clips: AC on, no noise gate on Helix - https://www.dropbox.com/s/xsmme3n7lq...0Gate.mp3?dl=0 AC off, no noise gate on Helix - https://www.dropbox.com/s/gk59dcrim4...0Gate.mp3?dl=0 Each of these is me changing channels from Clean, OD, Rhythm and Lead. Each change happens after about 10 seconds. There is noise in both but with the AC off sounds a little more like a normal hiss of an amp but I could be wrong. Any ideas what is causing this issue or how to fix?
