    Boss Noise gate
    For feature see below

    UTILIZATION

    Could not be more simple, you set the time between the decision of the note and the beginning of the mute and the intensity of the cut and the sound cuts like magic when the lamp lights up (gradually to cut).
    3-button simple and effective.
    Personally I put the threshold to 3 / 4 to 0 and the decay mode and I can not reduction M'E, n used that sound like that without loss.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Incredible efficiency.
    At first I said "yeah it's true that it is boring but the buit there are just turning the volume knob" and I order more awareness gained by knowing that I did not test VAIT .
    Since I can not do without.

    It feels to spend in vain but made this investment, it is worth it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Uncompromising pedal that works very well and will remain in my rig as it will work.
    Incredibly effective and does not change the sound (at least I did not notice) as some say.
    I've had three months and she follows me everywhere, repeat, concert ...
    It holds the road in all situations.

    This "noise" is more or less strongly and is intrinsic to the material used (adding gain, connecting a number of pedals, connectors, power supply, equipment of questionable quality ...).

    It can also come out with its 9V, redistribute enough energy to power more pedals (via a garland). But it does in any office power, but rather to relay power.

    Function "mute" in addition to the "reduction" to mute your sound.

    Integrated loop pedal: 1 input and 1 additional output thus: send and return

    1 LED indicates the activation of the reduction.

    2 settings:
    - Treshold: intensity of noise reduction
    - Decay: Setting the reaction time of reduction (the time the door starts to close ...)

    UTILIZATION

    Noise gate = gate-to-noise. Explanation:
    You play the background noise is present and * the door is open.
    You stop playing, background noise is reduced or completely eliminated, the door is closed sound.

    * This is not the door of the room where you play.

    As you increase the reduction ("treshold"), plus your sustain (end of your notes you play) will be puffy. We can not to miss.

    2 ways to use it:
    - Like a classic pedal, using only the "in" and "out". We then plug it back the item to "spoil" the end of the chain, then, or next to last if you have time (or he eat his last rehearsal).

    - Using the loop pedal. The reduction will be more effective and responsive. There are several wiring configurations possible (again according to the item to "spoil"), but here's a typical pattern:

    ( http://img360.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bossns2loopnu5.jpg )

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effectiveness of the NS-2 is real.

    It seems that it is not 100% transparent, unlike some models (ISP Decimator ...). Personally I think it is, especially with the use of the loop pedal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used with my set up mentioned in my section "equipment".
    Finally, try it now! But be careful before opting for the NS-2 or any noise reduction, make sure that your background is in the normal way (jacks, power supplies, shielding, ....). lamps etc.

    Noise Destructor!

    Boss NS-2 Noise SuppressorPublished on 06/12/11 at 08:41

    So simple eh as pedal is to Boss at the same time:
    -entrée/sortie
    One-loop effect (where one must put his pedal noisy!)
    -3 Knobs: ~ threshold (adjust the intensity of the noise reduction)
    ~ Decay (determines the length of the launch of Noise)
    ~ Potentiometer selecting the method of use of the pedal (it is literally cutting the sound is that the reduced)

    UTILIZATION

    Setup is simple: you plug the guitar in IN, you plug the amp into OUT and we put her in her loop pedal noise of the Boss and triturated quickly Threshold. I have not even touched the manual. Except that you do not get like me leaving the pedal plugged in because it consumes the batteries without using!

    So the quality is decent, but it is what seems ridiculous compared to the ISP decimator, but at least it suits me perfectly!

    I use it for three months, and I must say it saved my life!

    Noise gate looper

    Boss NS-2 Noise SuppressorPublished on 07/29/11 at 11:19
    Boss has a pedal for every possible operation in music. They should be making a pedal that plays the guitar for you. Boss is like the iphone app store. When they say there's an app for that...well there is Boos pedal for that. They have effects pedals for just about anything and everything that you can think of and have done versions and new editions of a lot of those pedals. If you can't find something that you need I am almost sure Boss has a pedal for it.

    This pedal is simply a noise gate. Not too much to talk about other than it limits the amount of noise one would experience in their guitar rig. The reason for a pedal like this is to give guitar players a limiter on how much noise …

If you can't find something that you need I am almost sure Boss has a pedal for it.

    This pedal is simply a noise gate. Not too much to talk about other than it limits the amount of noise one would experience in their guitar rig. The reason for a pedal like this is to give guitar players a limiter on how much noise they will experience in their signal chain. This pedal can be hooked up in two different ways. You can hook it up in your regular signal chain using the normal input and output and then you can hook it up in the effects loop of the pedal to act as if it is a kill switch.

    UTILIZATION

    Specifications

    Controls: Threshold, Decay, 2-way Mode Switch
    Connectors: Input, Output, Return, Send, 9V DC In, 9V DC Out
    Current Draw: 20 mA (DC 9V)
    Weight: 400 g (15 oz.)
    Recommended AC Adaptor: PSA Series


    SOUND QUALITY

    This Boss pedal will limit the amount of noise you will have through your effects chain. This is for the guys who use a lot of distortion and possible some extra overdrive peals for high gain purposes. If you don't use high gain then you probably don't experience a lot of noise in your tone and signal chain. For those who do use a lot of gain and possibly some high output pickups would need something to tame all of that noise.If you play blues rock or a soft rock then you probably would never need a pedal like this.

    I have found that a noise gate also helps when playing gigs in different places where they might not have good electrical outlets and you get some added noise. Possible the wiring is off and so extra noise is introduced into the line. A noise gate would help in that situation just to have in case you ever run into that problem.

    This pedal can act like a kill switch. If you run all of your effect in the send and return of this pedal you can step on the foot pedal and shut off all the sound from your rig. You can also run it like its supposed to when it will shut down the noise form the rig. All you do is set the threshold and and decay to how much and how quickly it will shut off. You will need to switch that up as you see fit from room to room outlet to outlet.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At new you can find these pedals for right around $115, which isn't bad for this pedal. I would recommend everyone who regularly gigs to have one of these pedals because the noise from room to room will affect you rig each time and it can be needed if you have high gain in your tone.

    Boss NS-2 Noise SuppressorPublished on 05/07/11 at 18:42
    The Boss NS-2 is a digital noise suppressor pedal designed to cut white/unwanted noise from you guitar signal. This particular noise suppressor has your standard Input and Output as well as an effects loop Send and Return. All of which are 1/4" jacks.

    UTILIZATION

    The Boss NS-2 is very easy to set up, and has a couple of ways to do so. The most effective ways being Guitar Signal into Input then Output into Amp, then have the noisy pedals (I use mine just for the dirt section.) in the effects loop of the NS-2. The other way is a little trickier. Guitar Signal to the INPUT of the NS-2, then the SEND of the NS-2 to the amp input. Then the effects loop SEND of the AMP into the effects R…

The most effective ways being Guitar Signal into Input then Output into Amp, then have the noisy pedals (I use mine just for the dirt section.) in the effects loop of the NS-2. The other way is a little trickier. Guitar Signal to the INPUT of the NS-2, then the SEND of the NS-2 to the amp input. Then the effects loop SEND of the AMP into the effects RETURN of the NS-2, then the OUTPUT of the NS-2 into the effects RETURN of the AMP. This is called the 'X Configuration' or 'X pattern' and is effective for eliminating noise from the front of the amp and the amp itself. It works best for high gain amplifiers that get noisy when the gain is increased. Other than that the Threshold and Decay are set to taste. It's a fairly easy pedal to use. You just find a setting and leave it.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I've used the NS-2 for guitar and bass. It works well for both. It doesn't really change my sound too noticeably in a live setting, but there is a subtle change to your tone. The gate can cut your sound if you set the threshold too high, but it can be set to not effect your sustain if you set it up right.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the money it's definitely a worthy pedal for any board. It does it's job and is very affordable. I've tried a few others and haven't found a real need to switch from my NS-2. I sold my original NS-2 and recently came back to it. It's a great pedal. Built like a tank, like most Boss pedals.

    reducing wind noise and spurious, generated by a pedal or amp

    UTILIZATION

    yes, but should be used Chaining send out in return for optimum uncolored sound.

    SOUND QUALITY

    excellent

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'll be brief, I was super disappointed at the beginning of the pedal. But I did not use it! actually came from the breath of my amp, and therefore with the chaining send out in return explained in the forum for audio fanzine;) and setting a good decay treshold and it completely removes the breath and do Collor absolutely no sound! !

    SOUND QUALITY

    connected between my record and my warwick, the sound is absolutely not distorted or colored, rather rare for a pedal that is not "true bypass". It is super convenient and very effective to suppress the breath of your pedal to plug ribembelle necessarily ds effects loop if you want to squeeze. Indeed, the noise gate works by comparing the input level, and the return of the loop.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm using it for 1 year and a half, bought € 92 from my usual dealer, I am totalemnt addict.
    I would do the choice without hesitation.
