Airy white noise on fade outs and palm muting

Recommended Posts

Simple chain-using Treadplate amp a bass cab and mic. When I let a power chord fade-instead of fading in to silence-this white noise hiss takes it's place. Same thing with very light palm muting-between played notes static hiss. I'm using an EMG active p/u. Too much amp gain??

Could be the noise gate just barely triggering. Tough to say.

Yeah-I've tried both-the Gate at the top left. Then the Noise Gate in Dynamics (NO not at the same time ;) ). Which one is THE one I should be trying to use?

Then I wondered if it might be related to the monioting button on my DAW. The noise doesn't seem to be there on playback.

Its been a few since I fired up PF but there is a PAD setting in there somewhere. I usually do what you do and have the gate 1st and just have it barely kick in.

 

Hmmm are you running a comp/sustainer? Check how fast the decay is.

 

There are a few real good PF dudes here who will probably swing by when they get a chance.

 

Though, if its not there on playback..... :) and check your batteries!

I like that noise!! Hahaha. If your running a high gain patch you may need to turn the noise gate up considerably and if you want it to sustain turn up the decay accordingly and maybe even turn up the Amp model volume. Keep in mind any compressors down the line may induce that again and another noise gate may be needed. Either that or turn the levels down till it's gone. I always run my guitar volume at the 1-2 position for set up and then crank it open to see what gives.

 

Keep in mind this is not set in stone but it works for me. Again I like that noise sometimes as long as it doesn't have any other crap in it, lol.

I had the wrong model selected :blink:.The Tread Plate is fine. It's the Criminal that's giving the hissy fit! PAD button is in for Active. Gate is Thresh -25 Decay 0. No Comp or Sus. Batteries 8.8V. I believe it was the Treble and Presence. I had them both dimed-and I don't know why. :unsure:  I put them both on 5 and the hiss has stopped.

Yes I want sustain on the end chords. I had the Decay at 0 because I wanted silence when I hit an accent chord. Maybe I was using it wrong?

You could try to EQ it too.

Yeah-that might be easier-I was trying different mic/cabs and placement.

Yeah Man, the only way to find out what works it to use it. Just keep trying things and you'll know what works and what doesn't.

Very true-being snowed in has been a good excuse to Tone Hunt! I found an EQ setting that works pretty well.
