Effects go where in the chain?

    I am about to start using a digitech multieffects processor in my signal chain, but I wanted to know where the best place to put it is. I am stricly going to use the compressor and that is it. No other effects. My other gear is a Peavey T-Max head and a sonic maximizer (mono). Where should I put the compressor in the chain? Before or after the maximizer? Thanks for your help!

    Run the compressor, then the maximizer through the effects loop of the amp.

    I played around with a BBE for a while. IME, it has to be the last link in the chain or its effect is lost.

    Err... bit of a grey area, but I think this might get a better response in Effects. If you disagree Bigfeet, send it back this way.
