order of effects in the signal chain

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by bassmeknik, Jan 23, 2014.

  1. Hello all, I have a compressor, an EQ, and a multi effects (mostly used for reverb or delay). I would like to put them all in the effects loop of my SVT4 Pro. The bass goes from a Line 6 G50 to the amp.

    The question I have is what order should I try first? I know there is a compressor guru lurking on here and I know he has an opinion on it. I'm being lazy tonight so instead of looking it up has anyone that has used a similar effects chain got an opinion here? (like eq last, comp first, multi-effect in the middle...)

    Thank you

    Well on my eden navigator preamp the compressor is the very first thing, even before the input gain stage. Depending your technique and desired sound, I would go wireless, comp, amp, (loop) eq, multi.
