compression & eq order

    Compression & EQ - in what order do you use them ?

    I thought a discussion would be in order, considering that most of us will often use both. Accordingly, I thought it would be interesting to see what our members think, and how you approach the order of EQ and Compression in a mix... The discussion doesn't need to be limited to just the track...

    compressor first or after eq

    I should know this but I am getting two answers (from two engineers). I am mixing in protools. In the signal chain, should I put a compressor first and then an eq or the other way around? And why. Thanks.
