    i use one at the end of my chain for spikes but im thinking it might be good to have another one before my synths to keep things even

    I use an EBS MultiComp at the very front of my chain, mostly so I can feed a clean signal into my MBSS, and then I usually have a comp patch up on my B3, which is second to last in my chain, for handling spikes and fattening up effected tones.

    Yes. Dual compression, 1 on my board through my blender and another rack comp blended through a channel on my amp. FAT and PUNCHY!!!!

    Yes. 2 pickups from attitude bass routed through 2 compressors for completely separate signal paths.

    I have done this, but my board has changed since then, and i no longer need to. No rules, just tone.

    I use a Multicomp in front of my OC2 and have both in a loop. I think it helps the tracking and I can adjust the volume this way. Also have a Diamond for slapping :bassist:

    Only when using my own backline(SansAmp RBI->dbx166xL->QSC2402's) to keep the speakers safe. ALL of the patches I've set in preamp(Line 6 Bass PODXTLive) have comp on them. As you see above, the BOSE doesn't get dual comp(hence, BOSE Abuser).
