Additional restoration effects


I’ve been experimenting with Pro Podcast Preset 3.0 and was thinking about the order of the effects chain, especially in case I need to add more restoration effects.

I noticed DeNoise/DeReverb are always added at the end of the chain, while DeEsser comes after EQ and before Dynamics. Is there any particular reason for that?

Supposing I want to add something like a Click Remover, is there any general advice for where in the chain you should add it, as well as other restoration effects if needed?


A general rule is that you should clean up audio first, de-ess, EQ, compress and then finally master your audio. A chain using your example @aasantos would look like this:


Then, finally, master the final mixed down audio file.

Thanks a lot for the clarification @Mike, this is super helpful!
