I am using Voxengo Gliss EQ and the Phase shift plug, as well as a limiter on most tracks.
I am wondering if there is a recommended efx order - in essence, I am asking if the phase shift should go first or last in the chain.
I suggest to use phase shifting plug-in as a first plug-in in the chain. Limiter as an FX can be used anywhere within the chain. For mastering limiter should probably come last.
From my experience an equalizer put after the compressor or limiter usually slightly enlivens the compressed material. So you may use this fact to free some dynamics if you feel like compressor puts too much press to the sound.
Good advice! I will put the Phase plug-in first in the chain, and the Gliss EQ last.
But having said that, there can be arguments for EQ Pre compressor - especially if you wish to set things up so that a particular frequency will hit the compressor.
Then maybe a "smoothing" EQ post comp?
I quite often use a linear phase EQ such as CurveEQ or UAD Cambridge first, then a comp, then another EQ such as UAD Pultec or Gliss EQ afterwards.
Limiter last of all.
But definitely the Phase tool first.
