Lives for gear
I'm sure I have told that story round here, but:

A) I made a track some years ago with only a worn-out tape delay and a cheap BBD echo as instruments (!). Noisy and crackly as hell.
I used an ART Pro Gate for the outputs, carefully adjusted everything and did an 11-minute live feedback orgy - noiseless, without any pumping or breathing.

B) I can completely remove any unwanted noise from a signal chain consisting of a Godwin Symphony string machine and a Compact Phasing "A" phaser - also with the Pro Gate. Long attack, long decay, varying levels on two channels of noisy oldschool strings - clean!

Of course the Pro Gate is more than just a gate, but I have never heard anything like that. I LOVE that thing.
