The pad itself doesn’t cause noise. The problem is that the pre-amp gets noisy at its highest gain settings. The pad cuts 25db from the signal. If you add all that gain back and end up at the upper end of the pre-amp its going to be noisy. Only use the Pad when turning the pre-amp all the way down doesn’t reduce the signal enough. The pre-amps on the iLive are very good and do offer a 55db range. However I find the last 10db too noisy to be really useful.
