Oh dear. The advice you get from this video about processing order really isn't going to help you very much, I'm afraid. There are good reasons for processing audio in a particular order, and they are all to do with the effect on the dynamics of your recording.

 

If you have constant background noise in your recording, you should remove it first, before any other processing at all - especially compression. If you compress a signal before NR, then the background level of the noise is going to alter, and the NR really isn't going to cope with that very well; what was previously a constant noise is now modulated by the compression. So no, you don't do this after other alterations you may make.

 

Similarly, if you apply EQ before compression, the effect is to vary the amount of EQ at any particular level that's been applied beforehand. This is more subtle, but it's the reason that breakpoints on real life mixers (where you'd insert a compressor) come before the EQ, not after them.

 

So to be most effective, the treatment order is NR first, then compression, and finally EQ.

Thanks for the feedback here Steve.

 

I think you may have read the bullet points in the post above instead of watching the video where I explain everything in detail as I absolutely agree that noise reduction should be done before anything else for all the reasons you mention.

 

As for EQ before or after compression it's a good discussion and I've given my reasons for the way I do it in reply to your post here.
