I know this question is a little vague but I just need some advice as to where to start with these.
A good starting point is to bypass all bands, use only little gain reduction of 1-3 dB, no makeup gain, and attack = 20 ms for the bass, around 12 ms for low mids, 5 ms and 3 ms. Turn on the bands which need processing. Dont use the presets. Start with a glass of water before the session.
