    Can anyone recommend a good Noise Gate? (I'm not sure if you call it noise
    gate or noise suppressor, but I'm talking about getting rid of hiss and hum
    from recordings).
    I'm using Pro Tools LE coming in from the M-Box and would like for it to be
    a Pro Tools Plug-in but not necessarily. What ever works the best. Can be a
    hardware too. I'm only using two mics at a time.

    Also, is there anything, plug in or otherwise, that can possibly at least
    help reduce string squeaks from guitars?
    I know technique is nr one but if there is anything on the market I'd sure
    like to know.
    I've tried the De-Esser that comes with pro tools but it doesn't do a whole
    lot.

    Thanks.

    IS.

    My fave gate is the old Ashly sc/sg-33's. When they are sold they go
    real cheap. I'm pretty sure you get a gate plug in with Protools. I
    have no idea how good it works, tho.

    For guitar squeeks, blow up the region in the editing window of
    Protools, find them squeeks one at a time and carefully make them
    softer using the volume rubber-band line (volume automation). It's slow
    but if you're careful you can find out how low you can make a squeek
    without it sounding unnatural.

    Good luck and get to work. ;>

    I have two Drawmer punch gates (four per unit) I'm thinking on selling. I've
    posted about trading for a good 16 ch mixer with I/O's and 4 auxs. How much can
    you spend?
  4. Are you recording distortion guitar???
