    Just a quick question........

    Which is more of a standard or a better practice when placing a processor(Compressor) in the Mic path..

    A. In line

    B. Insert

    basically, insert and inline are more less the same in terms of the path of the signal, what changes is WHERE in the chain the signal is taken from.

    Inserts on a board are usually post-gain, pre-eq, pre-fader.

    Inline you'd really only have one option, after the board, taking a line level out and feeding the compressor, so that'd be post-everything....

    My general suggestion would be to run it as an insert if you can.

    hope this helps

    Thats how I have always done it do to the difference of cabling.... but I was thinking of going Xlr all the way to the interface (my old comp only had 1/4's) my new one has Xlr's so I though it might be better to keep it all xlr...?....?
