Acoustic > PARA DI > then into Session DI...???
I've been doing a lot of acoustic these last few months, and I've been mainly using my LR Bags PARA DI only — but I just picked up a Session DI because I really, REALLY love the demos I've heard of the compressor. I'm planning to go acoustic > PARA DI (for EQ) > Session DI (for compression) > to desk.
Is it "okay" to chain the PARA and the Session like this?
Absolutely! Just make sure to set your gain staging correctly. Feeding a super hot signal into the Session might push the Saturation more than you want.
If you're not using much EQ, then you may be able to get away with using the Session by itself. Just use your ears and see what you like.
