Compressors vs. Limiters

Hi Kevin,

What are some of the factors you consider when choosing between compressing vs. limiting for dynamics processing, particularly on lead vocals, drum OHs and bass? I know so much depends on the source material, but do you find yourself reaching for one type over the other more often on certain sounds? And how often do you use them for more "radical" processing where you can hear the effect working, as opposed to going for more transparent signal-leveling?
