can you tell me where you got your THAT chips from? I built a gate a few weeks back and got some coolaudio v2181 chips via ebay that turned out to be only partially working (1/5). the others introduced more noise than they suppress. unfortunately, I did not find any sources...

Have you checked cabintech? They’re usually good for hard to find chips. Not sure about right now though, seems to be a chip shortage.

thanks Jimi. Haven't used them before. Unfortunately, they are out of stock (as are all my regular suppliers). With the general semiconductor shortage, I think that XVive is on the lowest priority with fab houses at the moment. The amounts they order are likely much smaller than common semiconductor parts for automotive and so on.

Nice, I saw that a while back. Never built it though. I figured once you build one that works, really wasn’t a need / want to build another one. But, I just might do it now.

Yeah my Decimator build has never left the pedalboard. It's pretty great.
I have a noise gate idea I've been kicking around based on the THAT 4305. It's borrows a bit from the Fortin Zuul and also one of the THAT application notes. Haven't tried building it yet. I really should add something like that to the mbp project list eventually.

You know, what I would really have liked is to have a noise gate add on board for high gain dirt pedals. Or a noise gate section as part of a high gain pedal build. That would have saved me pedal board real estate. I used to have up to 4 to 5 dirt pedals on my board necessitating at least a couple of noise gates for some of them, as I was working with loops and 1 setting to rule them all wasn't really working in my experience. Personally I think every dirt pedal should have a built in noise gate to begin with. With a possibility to bypass them if you want too.
