Probably the wrong approach. Look for a good preamp that has a good
comp/lim built in.

Don't use EQ at this point in the signal chain.

It's not about 'cleaning up' the input signal as much as not letting
it get dirty. the problem you are trying to solve is the preamp

Are you actually having signal-to-noise issues? Just turn the gain
down on your preamp so your inputs don't clip.
