Witch comes first EQ or Compression?


New member
Is there any certain order in witch I do these first, beacuse I have noticed that when I do compression first my overall output gain lowers significantly.
First EQ , then compress. If you are compressing freq. that needs to be cut anyway , that unwanted freq. will just trigger compressor more.
Definitely EQ, you have to use compressor carefully and with full understand of how it works
There are definitely various theories on signal chain order, but generally, EQ comes first.

As to compression lowering your output, that is why there is a "make-up gain" knob. Adjust accordingly.
