Well... I blundered again. I left out the addendum to the noise mod. My reasoning was that it was part of the old mod and not applicable. Wrong. MJMP straightened me out and I finished up the addendum and put everything back in the rack. It's done. Finally :thumb-up:

I found that using a noise gate after the MP1 doesn't work very well and I'm not sure why. Got rid of the Furman and added a protected power strip in the rear. So there's only 4 things in the shallow 12" 4 space rack: Line6 Relay G55 (Guitar), Line6 XDV55 (Vocals), MP1, 1101. 1/2 space gap on top and bottom of the MP1. 2 80mm AC fans in the rear.

The Mesa Two 50 is in its own shallow 12" 2 space rack.

Only requires 2 chords dropped from the 4 space to the 2 space.

Easy to haul. Clean and simple.

Good enough for me. It's done.

 :whoohoo!: looking good  :thumb-up: .

The built in gate/NR in the MP-2 is after the graphic eq, so signal is still mono and feeds into the chorus stage (where it goes stereo). So maybe (if you need a gate, I never used one or seemed to need one with MP-1) you could put it in the MP-1 loop, which is IIRC just before the chorus (again where it (MP-1) goes stereo).

I might try that.
I don't like using a gate but I have to. The line 6 wireless adds a little noise and so does a gain boost. Using a boost is the only way I've found to run the MP1 hot and not have a farting bottom but cleaning it up and running the gain from 3.0 to 5.0 makes for a very nice old school R&R tone and no farting.

Have you tried just running straight into the MP-1, nothing else in front ?  Everything you go through will add some noise and often colour the sound.

But in the set up you're using, you could also try the gate after the wireless (to get rid of it's noise as the boost will boost that noise as well as the signal), then the boost will add some noise and probably colour also.

Anyway best to try the options and hear what works best.

I've discovered the MP1 has:

An intermittent break up while playing. A crackling noise accompanied by volume fluctuations (this doesn't happen all the time).

When the gain is up around 8.0 and I turn up the preamp/amp, it starts to sing (no guitar, no input). At about 1/3 output.

There's a very strange pulsating hissing noise that happens at regular intervals (every 6 seconds), like an old dial telephone when you grab the '0' and crank it around, then turn it loose.

I have no idea where to go with this now.

Is it affected by patch setting ?  is chorus on ? (I'm guessing something to do with the bucket brigade circuit ?? due to your old phone reference)

Chorus is off. So is loop.
What is "bucket brigade circuit?"
I may have more than one issue going on here... Is there a chance I may also have a bad tube? I'm thinking of the singing when turned up.

2 things that come to my mind instantly:
- bad tube
- bad Vol pot
Iḿ sure MJMP will chime in shortly

I took out the Mullard and the strange fluctuations and 1/2 of the noise went away.
It's still too noisy to run over 6.0 gain without a gate. Seems like it's not really any better than stock.
I think I need to have someone look at it and find out what's wrong...
