I actually got the ID Core 20 about a month ago. And yes I think the noise gate is a bit too aggressive, cuts off way too soon. Sometimes when just softly picking the string it doesn't do anything... Didn't know it came with a noise gate at first so thought it was faulty. I should turn it off but not experimented with the software yet. Hope to do some recordings soon.
But yeah apart from that, sounds great! Had a 50w Laney before and this ID core sounds much better. The effects sound pretty good too. Really did improve my tone by quite a bit.
