Is your Gravitas noisy?

Mine is. It's really noisy. I run it into the front end of my nmv Marshall and the trem introduces a lot of noise into the system when it's engaged. I haven't had this problem with other trems before. Is something wrong with my Gravitas or is this a normal issue with them?

No problem with mine but I do run it in the loop of my Royalist.
I tried it in the loop of my Power Station and thought it sounded anemic and compressed but it was a little quieter. Out front it sounds great but has a lot of hiss.

What was the loop on the power station set to? There's a button that I'm pretty sure switches between line and pedal levels. I know when I had the power station it was a huge difference.

I tried it at both. It wasn't a loop level issue. It seemed like the bottom of the sine wave sort of fell apart. Just kind of lifeless in the loop. It seems like the preamp in the trem needs some tubes to push. I'm having a hard time getting over the pulsating hiss.

no problems with mine. running 18v sounds amazing.
I did try it at both 9v and 18v and thought it sounds better at 18. It seems to be a little brighter, cleaner and more touch sensitive but it makes about the same amount of noise.
