Limiting Question

In the video about limiting. You have diagram that explains that generally the limiter is the last in the chain however in your video your explanation is that you should take the limiter from spot 13 and place it after saturating the stem. In what cases do I put the limiter after saturation and the limiter after all the processing but before modulation etc?

What he means by this is; after you have saturated the source, you would then set the limiter, which will be last plug-in in the chain and then fill in the inserts in-between with the other processing steps.
The reason he does this is because the limiter can change the sound quite significantly, so if you have spent time crafting your sound and then apply the limiter you are going to change the nuances of the sound you created.
