Where is the volume slider in the signal chain? Does it go inserts, then the volume fader, then send, or insert, or fader, insert, send, etc?
The reason I’m asking is because I’m trying to conceptualize how the volume fader effects a compressor plugin, and vice versa. For instance, if I make a track louder with the fader, will that change the input level for the compressor? Or does the signal hit the compressor and then go the fader to be made louder? For the sake of simplicity, let’s assume in this example there are no other inserts and no sends.
