Compression/EQ on master fader

    If I'm mixing two distorted guitars, panned hard left and right, would I run into any problems (phase etc...) by busing them to a stereo master fader and applying EQ and or compression on the master instead of each gtr track? The only reason I would do it would be to save DSP.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure it will save dsp. Your eqing 2 things still ... seems like its the same amount of math. But that shouldn't create any phase problems. I do it all the time without a hitch. Do an experiment and try it both ways. Check your cpu useage each way and see if it makes a difference. I curious to see if this helps saves power. On the edge of my seat, ???? .... Fats
