the first time i hooked up my compressor, i went through it. i hooked my bass up to the input of channel one of the compressor, then got the channel 1 output into the amp. i though it worked, it made my amp sound so much louder when i turned up the output gain all the way. so should i go through the compressor, or put it in the effects loop like i am now? does going through the compressor do any damage? thanks!
