So obviously the best thing you can do is to have a clean recording from the get-go, but for those of your post-production experts out there: Is there a "best" order for using de-click, de-ess, de-plosive, normalization, compression etc?

1.) De-plosive. Highlight the area, drop 40 Hz and under by a few dB, and the plosive should disappear. Don't filter out too many dB or you'll have a thin sound.

2.) De-click.

3.) Compress. If your initial wav is really, really low, you might want to bring it up a few dB, maybe +3, before compressing. You definitely don't want to compress after normalizing or you'll have a very loud, distorted wav.

4.) Normalize, but only to -3 dB. This seems to be the standard. It gives a solid sound while leaving headroom for an engineer to add effects. If you're sending it to an engineer to add to a mix, DON'T compress. They'll handle that.

Hopefully this made sense and was helpful.
