Experience with the NR in BBE 362NR?

    I hate hissiness. I like things that can make it go away.

    I've been thinking of at least trying a Sonic Maximizer based on the many positive comments around here and given how I feel about noise in the rig (and understanding that some of it is "normal"), I'm wondering if the single-end NR of the 362NR version does good things based on folk's experience.


    PS: Search disclaimer: I did search and found one sort of tangential comment that was about the unit in general, not its ability to support noise reduction.

    I use the 362 NR.

    The NR works great for 'hiss'.

    BBE Process can add 'hiss' but not with the NR model.

    The Noise Reduction really works for me.

    I use a rackmount Gate to have dead silence when
    I stop playing. (lot's of effects).
    The BBE is supposed to be somewhat like a gate, but it's different.
    It actually reduces hiss all the time, even with it's "gate" open and your playing.

    If you notice, just about every model of BBE goes on sale
    at one time or another... but never the 362NR.
    There must be a reason for this.

    I've tried more then a few BBE's with my Bass rig over
    the years. The 362NR is my fav. Been using it for 6 years now.

    Just the bit of information I was looking for! I've tried more traditional noise gates, but the minute the sound level comes up, the hiss comes through also.

    I appreciate you taking the time to reply.
