    You must understand the principle behind compressor. Like threshold,ratio, gain, attack and release at least. Like kick drum, I can set at high ratio, slow attack, fast release. High ratio to have great dynamic reduction, but I slow attack to allow a certain peak to develop first after threshold before compress it, lastly fast release it to return to original state. Mostly you get very good thump...thump if you get the setting right. I don't remember the value cos, a lot of listening is need. Many compressor allow you side chain it, then the term ducking, desser....follow. Once you are good at compressor, you can easily understand multi-pressor. It is actually very good for summing/master buses. Since multi-pressor has 3 or 4 band to play with you can do eq-like lovelovelove compressor together.

    I don't think anybody come up an eq chart for Pro Tools, because it is very general and apply to any eqing. EQ is not only for general use. Also the filer and setting will also benefit you when you come across sound designing/synthesis. Know the term well, some term like LP,HP,BP,Q,Gain still apply to many different plug-in.
