Amp Sims and order of EQ and plug-ins

Postby Guest » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:54 am

I know whatever sounds best is the best approach, but I'm curious do most people insert their amp sim then eq's after it or would you eq first?

Looking at my guitar pedal board I have EQs before my guitar goes into my tube amp.

But it sounds a bit un natural when I do this using Eleven for some reason.

and I always put flangers and crazy fx last in the chain.

The 'traditional' way would be to put 'pedals', including flangers, ahead of the amp, and that's the approach I'd take.

But I would leave delays and reverbs after the amp.

Thanks Hugh.

Personally I'm of the opinion for EQ before the amp, and after, much in the same way as you'd EQ a mic coming from the amp speaker
