Overview

The Decimator guitar pedal offers a new approach to noise reduction processing. Most noise suppression systems suffer from one major problem inherent in their design: The system cannot be immediately responsive to very short-term staccato notes. The typical downward expander sound reduction system suffers from a dead zone in the release response characteristic that causes a compromise in tracking both fast decaying notes and long sustained notes. The Decimator pedal's design offers a novel approach to tracking the envelope of the input signal called Time Vector Processing.

Due to this novel approach in controlling the expander, the Decimator system will instantly respond to short staccato notes and, at the same time, will provide a very slow ripple free control of long sustained notes. The Decimator noise suppression system is very transparent delivering high performance.

The Decimator pedal by ISP Technologies is extremely easy to use; simply insert the Decimator at the end of your chain of existing pedals or, insert the Decimator Pedal in the effects loop of your amplifier to clean up the noise present at the amplifier input as well as the noise in the amplifiers pre-amp section. Packaged in a rugged, beautifully polished smooth chrome chassis, the Decimator pedal offers reliability, performance and beauty in one compact pedal.

This is an essential pedal for anybody who intends to play at high volumes. I use a lot of gain on my Marshall half stack, and for band practice, I really crank the volume. Before I got this pedal, it was almost unbearable how much noise I got, but this pedal, after ten seconds of dialing in the right level, completely cuts any unwanted noise. Other pedals can cut tone, but the only difference when you click this on is that the hum is gone. It has innovative technology that allows notes to naturally decay below its threshold while still cutting other noise. I am absolutely amazed at how well this product works, and I recommend it to anyone who plays with a band, and especially if you use high gain.

I've been wanting one of these for a while after seeing it in a lot of famous guitar player's gear list. It does gate out noise BUT it's not fast enough. I still get hiss/buzz for almost 1/4 of a second when I mute my strings. That's not any better than the ancient dbx 463 gate I was hoping to replace with this. When recording, it's still mandatory that I use a plug-in to solve noise issues when chords stop playing (Waves C1 gate) and that defeats the whole reason I bought this thing. It's quiet once it's gate closes, it's just still too slow. Back to the store with ya... My quest continues for the perfect gate and this one isn't it (neither is the Boss NS2 which is also too slow).

Absolutely does the job!

By JOHN MCGLENN

from St. Clair, Missouri

I play a Strat, so I'm used to some 60 cycle hum. I recently bought a new pedal and thought it was noisy, so I took it to Guitar Center and had the salesman give it a try. We figured out the real culprit was my amplifier, but while discussing the issue another customer overheard us and recommended the ISP Noise Decimator. He claimed he played all high-gain and the ISP took care of his noise issues and in his words, "the best money I've ever spent." I was a little skeptical having owned noise reduction units in the past only to get rid of them because the weren't very effective and sucked tone. But in the end, I decided to order one and can truthfully say I was very pleasantly surprised. It works as advertised! Very easy to operate, just one knob. It took me 10 seconds and now my rig is ultra quiet. I was considering Lace sensors for my Strat, but don't need 'em now. The pedal is absolutely transparent. Notes decay naturally. I've owned it two months now and still find it amazing. It is very heavy as compared to other pedals the same size, which appears to be about the size and shape of most Boss pedals. It appears to be able to withstand a lot of rugged use, which I find funny because it isn't something I kick on and off all the time. When I set up, I kick it on and forget it. If you are considering a noise reduction unit, give this one a shot. What have you got to lose, except noise?

awesome pedal, well worth the money

By bob lewis

from cedar lake, in

I read alot of reviews for various noisegates. Bought a few others based on that. But they were all false. This pedal slams a door on any feedback. I run a few pedals before my amp, no issues at all. It doesnt effect the tone, it just cleans everything up and helps make the note more pronounced. Only drawback is if you have the pedal past 12 o' clock, it cuts your clean tone(switching from distortion to clean via pedal) Over all, its a keeper

No more noise!

By Brian Letchworth _

from Roanoke Rapids, NC

I have this pedal after my od/eq/compressor/envelope pedals and before my reverb and delay. It keeps the noise down from my dyna comp which is saying something. It works better than the Rocktron Hush i've tried. Built Tough. Shiny. 1 knob. Have mine set on -40 at all times. Highly recommended!

Worth the cash

By Daniel Nielsen

from Norfolk NE

Does what it says. Just make sure you put it at the very end of your signal chain and you'll be happy you spent the money to get this. And this bad boy is built to last. Probably the heaviest pedal I have. If you experience a lot of line noise, this pedal is a MUST HAVE!

Exactly what I needed...

By MATT LEHNERT

from Lincoln, NE

Recently purchased a used Vox AC 30 Top Boost. I liked the tone the best out of the "brilliant channel" but the P-90s in my Les Paul were almost screaming thru that channel when strings were muted. Literally 30 seconds out the the box, on the board, and turn dial to just past -40. All over.... Does what it says it does and 1 knob easy operation. Lots of gain? P-90s? Well worth the $$$$

Its all a bunch of apples.

By Mark McGee

from Tucson AZ

I have bought 3 different noice supressors / reductions / Gates. This, the Boss NS-2, the MXR. All in all I have to say they ALL do the job. I can't honestly say I like one over the other. The ISP is easy to set and for that alone I seem to use it most. They all sap a bit of Tone, every one of them. Running it on lets say, a Dr. Z amp or other nice Tube amp you will lose a bit of tone, if you are a tone junky, you will play with this off unless it's absolutley needed. I like the boss as well, seems to do better with lower volumes. For those that need to know. This as well as the others work great to stop that static we all hate. but there are a few things you need to know. Not that these are bad just read the following. 1. You will lose some tone. 2. If you play late at night like I do and at low volumes, don't try have this on. It will cut low volume out, or you have to set it to low to be worth it (from the guitar). 3. You will get noise through the ISP, It's not magic. You will just not notice it much. It actually doesnt get rid of unwanted noise as much as cuts it at lower volumes. Somewhat. Hard to explain. 4. I tend to turn it off untill the hiss/ noise start to be more noticable. All in all though. It does a great job and I love it and the Boss NS-2. It did its job, which is make my amp sound quiet when it should. But it comes with a price. Want less noise, try cutting pedals and checking you cables along with this.

Perfect tone.....A must have

By David Schaller

from San Diego, Ca.

I have used other noise reduction in the past only to be disappointed with their effect on tone. I spoke with some people who told me this was best for massive amounts of gain, which is not my thing, so I was a little concerned it might not work for me. I generally use an old 1980's RAT at about 20% or a Tube Screamer at full gain into a Marshall 50 watt head. When I plugged this in and dialed out the hum, hiss and squeals, all I was left with was delicious tone. The only caveat; even though I use limited gain, this pedal only works well with the guitar volume wide open. If you want to turn down your volume to lower your gain, the sound is clearly clipped and sounds odd. As long as you are willing to live with turning it off when you dial back the volume, it is truly awesome at doing what it claims to do. I buy and sell pedals regularly. Other than a tuner and my aforementioned pedals, they're all at-risk for sale. The Decimator is definitely a keeper!

UNREAL

By Bob Sullivan

from Algonqui, Illinois

I read all the reviews here, called G.C. spoke with someone who said it was the best piece of gear he'd bought. I went to G.C. plugged into a 100 watt Fender Mustang 3, stood about a foot away, faced the speaker, turned up to 7 and the noise was incredible (as you could imagine). It took 5 seconds to stomp the pedal and dial it in. NO UNWANTED NOISE, just loud guitar exactly as I wanted, all the sustain, staccato, and tone which should be there. If you play metal you need this! If you practice loud in a small space, you need this! As with any playing situation, make sure your power is clean, shielding and grounds are proper, eliminate the obvious then buy this pedal! It just gives you the ability to explore sound without being handcuffed by the hissing buzzing and feedback inherent in high gain amplification.

Does what I wanted it to do

By Nick Perry-Guetti

from West Linn, OR

I had a huge problem: I own a gorgeous-sounding mahogany guitar with P90 pickups, and wanted to extend its tone with a good compressor. The combination sounded wonderful, except that when I turned it up loud enough to jam, the hum from the P90s was magnified to unbearable proportions by the compressor. I asked around for advice to no avail, until someone suggested the Decimator. I put it right in front of my effects chain, before everything else, so it would pick up just the dry signal from my guitar. Set at about -45dB, the hum was cancelled with no effect whatsoever on my attack or sustain! Another interesting feature of this pedal is that at higher dB settings, cutoff at the decay end is very slow, almost like someone is editing a fade-out at a nice, subtle rate. This may be the most expensive pedal I own, but for my purposes it ends up being probably the most valuable.
