    Default Boss Noise suppressor question

    Iíve got an old time Peavey 5150 amp, and in the effects loop, Iím running an MXR flanger, MXR phase 90, and Boss digital delay. I was getting too much buzz and hiss (especially with the flanger) so I got a Boss noise suppressor.

    The noise suppressor itself kind of works as an effects loop (with send and return, etc.) So, do I run suppressor (followed by the effects) in the ampís effects loop? Or stop using the ampís effects loop and only use the suppressorís loop and run this directly to the ampís guitar input? Or, do I separate the suppressor and the effects, running the suppressor into the guitar input, and keeping the effects in the ampís effects loop? Does any of this make sense?

    What do you fellas think?

    My 2 cents. You want the noise suppressor at the end so it will control all hiss and noise from the amp and the pedals. The coloring effects like chorus, flanger and delay should sound best in the loop, not in front of the preamp-but it's to your taste really. I have found that the effects after the preamp generally sound better in the loop. You really don't want that stuff before the preamp because it isn't a pure signal to the preamp. The only effect you want before the preamp is effects like the wah, volume pedal or whammy pedal if you have them.

    i use mine as the noise gate function with the floor effects in the loop.

    my set up goes:

    GUITAR--->WAHWAH---->NS2 INPUT----------------------->5150 INPUT

    NS2 SEND--->BF2-->PHASE90-->TR2-->NS2 RETURN

    i keep most stomp boxes in front. i find that stomp boxes are to noisy for the loop unless they are buffered or dont have a modulation effect like Digital Delay pedals.

    I have mine after my wah as well into the 5150 combo input. I just did not like it in the effects loop.

    Missed this, but I'll tell you how I have mine.

    Only things I have in my effects loop is my BBE Sonic Maximizer and my Boss DD-3 Delay (that I use for reverb). Everything else is out front, here's my setup.

    N2Send --> Boss OS-2 --> EVH Phase 90 --> EVH MXR Flanger --> Crybaby Wah --> NS2 Return

    Guitar --> NS2Input --> 5150

    When I get my MXR Micro Amp, I plan on putting that in the effects loop after the DD-3 for my leads.
