    I know Kurt has addressed this, and I know it was recently (within a few months) but I can't find it anywhere. So I can't 'revisit' it.

    So, can you guys re-state your preferred chain of events when setting up tracks. Vocal, Guitar, Drums....etc. Or Just Vocals.

    ie. signal->compression-eq-reverb

    Thanks, ye of great wisdom.

    I will put the eq before or after the comp, depending on what I want. I just usually try it both ways to see what sounds best for the song. But I always put the gate first, before compression. A signal with a wider dynamic range is much easier to gate than one that has been squished already. Reverbs go after that gate too, so if the gate closes it doesn't clamp down on the reverb tail.
