    Hi all,

    was just wondering what is common practice, if you are sending your already recorded "off the mic" kick channel out of your DAW to an external comp, do most guys eq the kick pre or post comp, or both?
    Or for example, is it better to do the "cutting" pre and "boosting" post comp?
    I understand that eq'ing pre and post both have different results but am wondering which is more common and why.
