right so my question is, if I have a bus of something say a snare or kick, after the fx like eq saturation etc should I put on a compressor to glue the layers of the kick or whatever together and then another one to give it the punch or is this not acceptable? may seem like a stupid question but I'm still learning hahah.

i usually limit my individual hits before going to the bus, then just slightly take the peaks off of them combined with a limiter after my fx chain. I don't think compression or limiting is necessary but it can just help with a number of things, I use it for headroom and taking the peaks off.
