Which NOISE BAND CUT setting should I use?
Each of the Smart Gate’s noise reduction settings is optimized for specific
input sources. In general, the Hiss setting works well with instruments and
input sources that boost the high frequency range, such as vocal mics,
wind instruments, keyboards, and electric bass. The Hiss setting and the
Mid setting are both effective on instruments with high gain midrange
boosting, such as distorted electric guitars and amplified harmonicas.
The Full setting is most effective when used to quiet input sources with
low-end hum and buzz problems, such as AC line noise, display noise, or
light dimmer noise. To quiet a rack of noisy effects, place the Smart Gate
last in the signal chain, just before the amplifier.
