Noise Gate: A noise gate effect pedal is used to reduce any electronic unwanted noise. Noise in the guitar world is usually the result of electromagnetic interference (EMI) which is all around us in the modern world. This EMI interacts with many guitar cables, pickups, amplifiers and other electronic equipment and when fed into a guitar amplifier (particularly amps with high preamp gain), can produce a lot of unwanted noise.
Simpler Definition: A device to eliminate unwanted electrical noise.
