Hi I own a Marshall half-stack and HX Effects. I like to set the amp volume very loud to get the best distortion,
then use the HX Effects to lower the volume in db in the signal chain after FX loop using the Noise Gate/Hard Gate as last effect
to match whatever level I actually need for band, home etc.
The problem is I'd like to avoid the feedback that occurs when the noise gate is disabled to change a channel, make edits, accidents, etc.
Its very rare, but when it does the amp is super loud with potentially damaging feedback, want to protect my speakers even in rare cases.
Does anybody know of good way to avoid feedback , besides the obvious answer of "standway from the amp", "lower the volume"?
A rackmount limiter or feedback suppressor is my thought, but they all seem to have TRS or XLR outputs.
Another problem, when I change channels through HX effects it changes the scene first, so going from a dirty channel snapshot
with gate enabled, to snapshot clean channel with gate disabled, has feedback effect also, because the scene change happens first
with dirty channel on, gate, change snap, no gate, feedback, send channel change, (too late to avoid it), then after the channel change cmd
is received everything is fine.
