Noise Gate on Input Block Not Working Correctly

For some time, I’ve been struggling with the tone of the QC with leads and mostly higher gain settings. The tone was very thin and low sustain. I have been tweaking the noise gate on the input block and noticed even when set to 0%, it still aggressively attacks the noise and cuts the guitar signal, making it sound very thin. I finally stopped using the input noise gate block, and started just using a simple gate on the first block, and it has made a huge improvement to the tone and sustain. I think there may be a problem with how the noise gate on the input block functions that NDSP might want to look at.
