How do they work: Logic mixer effects signal path
After much searching, I have not found the answer to my question (or I was just searching using the wrong keywords).
I have a slight understanding of how signal flow works: you have a sound, you send it through something (a mixer, a compressor, a software effect) and that sound is changed. Depending where you place something that affects the sound, how the sound sounds at the end can be different....compressing a sound before EQing it will sound different than if you EQ a sound then compress it. These things I get.
Now, Logic has its Mixer, and each sound channel has it own little channel strip where you can place effects. As a first time producer, my first tracks channel strips typically had EQ first, then other effects put onto it, as I saw the need for it (like a low pass filter when I figured out that a sound needed to be put through a low pass filter).
So I had a thought the other day: is there a "right" way to work the signal flow in Logics channel strips? Should certain effects be put in a certain order to get the best sound? Are there rules I should be following?
