I asked this at PSW several years ago.

According to Waves, they should null.

However.... as I recall there was an issue as to if you were using protools or a VST.

Also some felt a difference using a separate L2, one for left one for right.

What I would really like to know, since so much emphasis has been placed on limiting, is do you rely on the limiter as your MAIN tool for volume increase? Or, does the majority increase come from multiple tools before it hits the limiter?
