A noise gate is a piece of audio processing equipment or software that mutes a signal when it is below a set threshold. The gate only opens when the signal is strong enough to pass.

Fender mustang noise

This isn't much information to go on. I may can help if you could be more specific. What amp? Presets of what? What software? What noise gate? Where is this noise, amp output or pc input? A computer sound card can do weird things when musical equipment is plugged into it, some mice will do it, making noise when you move the mouse around. I'm guessing how you are set up, if you get back to me, I will try to help you further.

Noisegate on vyper tube 120 chokes note off on high gain settings to much for my taste

You are probablly overdriving the unit. Too much gain saturates the electronics. The noisegate really only works to eliminate noise when input signal is below a certain level... it is NOT used or effective when at high signal levels. If you set gain too high the tiny signals will open the gate. The noise gate will prevent low signals like guitar "handling" noise from passing through until you are actually playing the guitar. This is the purpose of the noise gate.

Delay in pick up

If the audio is being run through a "noise gate", that is what clips the first part of sound.

Reduce the attack time of the noise gate or remove it from your system.
