If you want to hear the compression in real time while singing, in the box is a poor choice.
I agree with the theory , but the speed of sound is a little slower than the speed of electricity. So just standing a few feet from a loud guitar amp adds a few millisecs delay, does it not? (eg 11 ft = +10 msec). But in reality it gets to the point where it just doesn't matter.

Doesn't something like UAD Apollo Unison preamps and channel strips ( eg Manley Vox box ) minimize that to the point where its indistinguishable (time-wise)?
