For ground loops, I just use a Radio Shack GLI and some adapters. http://www.radioshack.com/sm-buy-the-gr ... 62214.html
For Noise Gating, I just multitrack the noisy channels and gate them digitally, but I used to use a Behringer Denoiser, which worked well on anything except really punchy sounds.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

I try to eq out the noise when recording and then if its to quiet gain stage...
works unless your doing more than a couple of layers w/ the same source, I also record direct to interface a lot which helps. I also have a 'quiet' amp, loud as you want, but sometimes forget its on! gotta love O.G. Musicmans.

btw- I know you play a lot of guitar, have you shielded your guitar pickgaurd for rf??? are there flourescents in your studio? sometimes the obvious is easily overlooked. watching your power cables so they dont cross patches?
short patch= best patch. lift ground?

I've recently pimped out my guitar - what's this rf pickup shielding you talk of?
