Re: Ground Control + GXC + Engl e530 - how to wire noise gate?

Guys the studio is * so there's no workaround for that. I guess I could have one heavy gate for rehearsals and one lite for live stuff. All other places I've tried this rig, 2 in general (not too many as it is 120lbs), I have had no problem with the noise, actually it's so quiet that I won't need no...

Re: Looking for advice on equipment & pedal order on board

I'd only run the distortion in noise gate fx loop. That's the only piece bound to generate noise anyway. Pedal order seems fine to me.

Re: Ground Control + GXC + Engl e530 - how to wire noise gate?

Good suggestion for the Ebtech. The studio wiring is basically a mess with all kinds of solid state or tube amps, as soon as you turn on distortion/overdrive and it picks up Mexican radio and this permanent hum. I think I'll be fine going at venues even without the noise gate. Right now I have a MXR...

Ground Control + GXC + Engl e530 - how to wire noise gate?

The #1-3 inputs on the GXC are used for switching the preamp (Engl E530 preamp). Then #4 has a noise gate in the front of the preamp, and 5-7 are time effects (chorus, delay1, delay2) that are fed in the FX send, last one #7 goes to FX return of the E530, output of E530 goes to a tube power amp. I h...

Re: GCX and Ground Control Pro - can order of effects be swapped?

@nyteowl - thank you, didn't think of that and it can save me extra space on the switcher to add other effects...
if space will permit on the rack, or course :)

GCX and Ground Control Pro - can order of effects be swapped?

I have a GCX and a GCP - seems to work fine, I have it wrapped around an ENGL E530 preamp to where it switches its channels and gain stage, so that works out great. I am also looking to place a few fx before the preamp and a few in the loop. In the preamp I'll have most likely just a tuner and noise...
