Merry Christmas to me. So I was given an Empress ParaEq as a present. I checked over the manual, but I still can't figure this thing out. I watched a guy (guitarist) on Youtube that was using it to find unwanted noise and tweak it out, but that's about it. For the bass players out there that use this thing, how do you use it? What settings are you putting this thing at? It is just for noise reduction at certain frequencies and a booster? Sorry, I'm not too bright when it comes to pedals. BTW, I put this before my MXR compressor. Is that OK?
