Help? What order do these effects go in?

Hi everyone, thumbsup

Im a DJ and wanted to know what order my stuff should go in, for club use.


I have a compressor an e.q. and an ultraflex, all Behringer, Sorry.. But it was all i could afford..

Should the order be..

Compressor -> Ultraflex -> E.Q. ?

E.Q. -> Compressor -> Ultraflex ?

Compressor -> Ultraflex -> E.Q. ?

UltraFEX perhaps? You can probably toss that one...

On the others, it depends on if you want to EQ a compressed signal or compress an EQ'd signal.

In other words, don't use something "just to use it" - Use what you need, where you need it.

If you put an eq before a compressor it will affect how your compressor reacts. If the eq is after the compressor then the eq is shaping the compressed sound. As a Dj you may not need a compressor unless you are trying to protect a sound system's speakers. Protecting speakers is ussually my job as a sound guy and not the job of the Dj. If you are doing your own sound and you understand how a compressor works, then it will be usefull to you.

As far as the effect unit, I would'nt use it unless you can hook it up in parallel for an occasional delay.
