    Warren talks about EQ (boost) -> compression on his desk for snare and guitar to give it spank. This way you're pushing up frequencies you want, then distorting them (in a good way!) by driving them harder into the compressor. It's actually pretty subtle but I've done something I assume is like this using the bx_console E.

    But he's also usually doing something like EQ -> Comp -> deesser -> EQ -> Comp -> Comp -> deesser -> EQ -> etc... but only doing a little bit, so it is in that context.
