Noisy Metal Master!

I have a Digitech Metal Master. and is really noisy, you cant even play the notes cant ring out very well tru the noise.
i run this setup
Morley Bad Horsie
Digitech Metal Master
Digitech rp200
Ibanez Super chorus
Boss ge7
Digitech xp300

i created an special patch in my Digitech Rp200 while using the metal master. in this patch i use only the silencer set at the maximum but i get the same Hum and noise, will a boss noise supresor solve the problem?
someone has a better idea?

From what I've heard digitech = noise, so try to cut one or two of your digitech pedals out of there unless they're paying you to use them Or, try finding a different type of distortion pedal because it sounds like this isn't giving you the sound you want.

LOl i wish they pay me for use their products.
I think ive learned the leason, Digitech Sucks!!!
My rp200 is failing as well my xp300
in the rp the knobs are almost useless you have to do some tricks to move the parameters.
the xp300 sometimes the expression pedal starts to fail.
Btw you know that the x series pedals doesnt work on batteries!!!!
the batteries last like 15 minutes then the battery dies.
the guys at digitech insist to use the power adapter for optimal performance.
Maybe they should pay for using their products because is a pain in the **s.
but they sound cool when they work well(Sometimes)

the main Question will the Boss noise supresor help?
Thanks to everyone that has posted or is going to post.

Try to place the Metal Master at the end. Maybe that'll help.

IMHO, I think your problem is isolated.
Weather it's the battery, or power source your using, or the way you have everything hooked up.
Ive played the metal master many times and have never had any problems with it. I've even sold them over Boss Metal Zone's.
I have had Digitech boxes come back to us being completely defective. Not often. But it has happened. Try using another MM and see how that works.

i have used batteries and the hum is reduced just a bit but there is still annoying hum, but this pedal mm doesnt work on batteries New batteries last only 15 minutes then it doesnt want to turn on.
Using a Boss NOise supressor at the last in my effects chain will help?
