    Hey Marshall-nauts,

    I have a JVM410H and OD1 Orange is where I spend most of my time. I've been auditioning some of my drive pedals through it to push the front end a bit. I'm finding that I have a kind of a weird artifact that "rings" out like an envelope around the primary guitar tone that decays out after I hit a chord or note and mute it quickly. The best way to describe the tone is a kind of gated or reverse reverb type tone that rings out for just a second after I mute the primary note or chord. If I'm not using a drive pedal it's either not there, or if it is is so faint that I can't notice it with my old tinnitus riddled ears. Reverb on the head is off, and I have no verbs or delays on in the loop when I do this.

    I've noticed this with an EP booster, Tumnus Deluxe, OCD V1.4, and an Oxblood, so it's not unique to any one drive. I'll see if I can grab a clip next week and post it as it's hard to explain it in words, but was wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this? The other way I would describe it is like there's signal that is backing up and "clears" the gain stages a few milliseconds after I stop producing signal from the guitar. As I'm typing this it just occurred to me that I need to try this with a cable, and not my Line6 G10S wireless, to see if this is something digital from the wireless unit that's getting boosted by the drive pedals.

    Thoughts?

    Any sort of compression/limiting on in the chain? On the Line6?

    Not sure on the Line6 Relay unit, but I don't think so. But thanks, this got me thinking about the ISP Decimator X that's sitting right after my tuner.

    Signal chain is Relay wireless, Strobostomp HD, Decimator X, EP Boost, Tumnus Deluxe, Boss MD500. I think this may be the decay on the gating algorithm on the Decimator getting amplified by the boosts after it. My reason for putting the Decimator X at the front end was that my noise is all stuff getting picked up by the pickups in any of my guitars. I have a water meter outside my office on the exterior wall, my work computers, etc. I'll rework the signal chain and put the Decimator X last, and I'll bet that solves or calms it down.

    Try putting the decimator in the loop.
