  2. That is an awesome setup. So am I understanding you right when you say you plug into the ISP first, route through all your pedals, then go back into the ISP? Then I assume there is another output to go into your amp? Thanks for any clarification as I am a little unsure how noise reducers are used.

    Yes.
    Guitar to ISP
    Effects loop through ISP
    Effects and guitar signals meet
    Go to amp.

    The ISP G-String has four holes. They aren't named this, but they should be:

    Guitar in
    Guitar/G-string out to effects loop
    effects loop back into G-String
    Out to amp

    The G-String is a little different than some other noise filters. A lot of filters have an input and an output...that's it. The G-string has an effects loop to buffer out noise from the loop apart from the guitar input.

    I tried the normal decimator, but when I run several distortions at once the noise filter had to be set so high that it filtered everything, including what i wanted to go through; and was thereby useless.
    With the effect loop filter on the G-String, the filter gate is opened up a little when I play, mixing the guitar signal and effects signal together before shooting them to the amp.
