    Directional flow of insert effects
    Hi all, I just have one quick question and that is the flow of insert effects on a channel strip sounds as though it goes from top to bottom, in other words the effect you want to hear last would go on the bottom, right. I'm only asking because I saw a couple of people on tutorials place effects as if they were flowing from bottom to top. Thanks,

    Hi Tasada, Yes, the plugins goes from top to bottom, so the plugin at the bottom will be the last in the chain. I'm curious... what tutorials are you referring to ? Christian

    Hi tasada, Welcome to the macProVideo forums. Yes, you're right, the signal flow is from top to bottom. Quite often I'll place a limiter or reverb towards the bottom of the inserts as I wish that to be the last effect on the channel strip, and it gives me room to insert compressors, delays etc etc before it, without needing to move insert plug-ins around... Cheers Rounik

    Thanks for the replies guys, Christian, I can't remember what specific tutorial it was from. I know it was a while ago before Logic had a variety of videos. It might have been from one of the free DVD's that come with magazines. But anyway, thanks for your guys help.
