There are obviously no rules when it comes to pedals and what goes where, but my reason for that comment was why would you put a pedal that's supposed to give more signal to whatever comes after it (the booster) directly into a pedal that's main purpose is to reduce dynamic range (the compressor)? Makes no sense to me.Where is the best spot to put a compressor? Before or after the dirt boxes?
As far as where the comp goes is relation to dirt pedals, I'd say experiment and decide what sounds best to your ear. I usually put the comp first (if I'm even using a compressor), just after my tuner, then my dirt pedals, but that's just works for me. It's gong to sound different in either configuration.
