How to get rid of noise in high-gain?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I've recently bought a Helix Lt and I'm trying to make some settings, but I'm finding something curious in every one I made. I tried with Line6 Badonk amp + cab but when I palm mute I'm hearing a strange noise on the background while the volume is going down and then I added a noise gate, but still hearing that. Then, I tried with Archetype Lead and Revv Gen Red/Purple or even a Mandarin 80 and the noise is still there...

 

The only way I've found to manage the noise is setting up a Hard Gate but it cuts the sound a lot... any idea?

 

I let you here a clip that I recorded to show the problem: SoundCloud - Noise (recorded with Guitar direct to Helix LT, with input noise gate at Threshold -48dB, decay 10ms, Guitar In-Z Auto + Scream 808 with 0 gain, 6.5 tone, 10 level and Archetype Lead stock settings + Cali V30)

Did you try the Noise Gate in the Input Block?

I had the same issue - put a gate after the amp or at very least after any high gain stomps you have. Yes you have to negotiate levels & settings but that's all that worked for me. 

 

Good luck, hope you get it figured out.

that's interference from something getting through either 1. the guitar pickups (lights, computer, wireless networks) or 2. coming through the power supply... it's got a pitch to it. What is the power supply plugged into, and what are you sitting next to?

...and where are you placing your phone?  Try shutting it off just to rule it in/out.
