Using Equalizers and Compressors
The answer to these questions comes from the man himself, Chris Lord Alge
You've got a vocal that needs a compressor and an EQ on it, what order should they be in?
Does it really matter?
Is it the same when you use plug-in's?
THE EQ SHOULD FEED INTO THE COMPRESSOR
IT MATTERS, EQ AFTER THE COMPRESSOR LEADS TO SIBILANCE ISSUES
IT'S THE SAME WHETHER YOU'RE USING HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE PLUG-IN COMPONENTS, EQ AFTER THE COMPRESSOR WILL LEAD TO SIBILANCE ISSUES
Good music to you!
