Noise Gate for External Amp?
by glkustoms on 2013-03-27 10:56:12.2570

I’m looking at purchasing a POD HD500 to use mainly for effects with my Peavey Bandit 112 (Red Stripe). On some occasions, I will want to use the lead channel on the amp, but it is very noisy. My question is will the noise gate on the POD HD500 kill or reduce my amp's noise (4CM) or does the gate only affect the modeled amps and effects within the unit itself? I'm on a budget right now, so I'm trying to avoid buying a separate gate pedal.
