    hi guys,
    if i have a boost(m401 boost/line driver),
    a boss noise suppressor,
    a EHX knockout(low-mid-end filter).

    and i would like to use the booster as a signal boost,
    inorder to get rid of the signal lost due to the long pedal chain.

    what order should i go for these three?

    Filter, boost, noise suppressor.

    Yep, this. Except I wouldn't use the Boss noise suppressor. You only have two not-so-noisy effects in your chain which doesn't really justify putting a gate after them.

    However, if you really want to use it (I'm assuming it's an NS-2), put the other two effects in the loop and plug your guitar into the input to trigger the gate. Output of the NS-2 goes to the amp.

    Filter in front of the amp and the NS-2 in the FX loop (not required if you don't use much gain from the amp). If you're only using these three pedals and want to use the boost as a volume boost then it should go in the FX loop. If you want to use it to add more gain to your sound without much of a volume jump it should go in between the filter and the amp.
