My Rockman XPRa with the compressor bypass and Ultimatum mods is nice and quiet with plenty of gain.
Is anyone out there capable of converting an XPR to XPRa?

Yes, Bob Cedro at MXR (if he has the time). But why not just put a Smart Gate (Rockman or MXR) in the effects loop along with an EQ, Stereo Chorus (if you need the LONG CHORUS), Stereo Echo, and control it with a MIDI Octopus? Problem solved!

Well, in fairness, there's a lot more going on with the XPRa mod than just simple quieting.
Besides, adding a Smart Gate won't take care of the noise floor, only hide it while you are playing.
But that comes at a price... notes that are fading out will get cut a little... ie- you will lose some sustain.

Rather than try to get an XRR modded into an XPRa, I would just look for an XPRa.
I have a really nice XP100a in great shape if you're interested....NOS speakers and all.
But, it won't be cheap....

I was afraid you'd say that!
