Re: Noise reduction-when to apply? by Chad Baker on Aug 31, 2011 at 5:18:38 am
Ultimately, the workflow that produces a result that sounds better to your ears is the one you should use. That being said, when I do this type of work I generally apply noise reduction earlier in the chain. That way, I'm not feeding a noisy signal into the rest of the effects processing that I do later on down the chain. This is particularly important when I'm applying something like reverb.
