At the mic on the way in is the only time you will get to treat a fully analog signal with fully analog equipment such as compression and also eq. I understand people wanting to not commit but once you get some experience, if you have the vision of what you are going for, why not commit..why not do it at the fullest bandwidth available..imo...

and a well recorded and sample/bit rate digital recording played into analog aux gear is less than stellar because?

and this "all analog" chain overrides the late rides and compressor overshoot that's inevitable in tracking with a compressor because......[perceived mojo???]

Lots of varying opinions here. There is no right or wrong, just what works for you. I almost always put a little compression on going in. 4:1 ration with a soft knee auto setting. Shave 3db off. I know I’m gonna compress afterwards so 3db of soft compression that doesn’t really affect the Sonics of the track is 3db less I have to apply somewhere else in the mix. Another 3db on an insert and then some more on a buss and then a little more on the 2 buss. It all adds up and it’s less destructive than 10 to 12 all at once. But no, it not necessary in the 24 bit world. It’s a matter of preference and work flow for me.
