there has to be a reason to compress. This can be either "technical" (i.e. keeping a sound in check so to speak), creative (tempo based compression) or both.

With that in mind the "how to" part is then relative to each intended purpose and it cannot just be explained in one post. But you can start by experimenting on different sounds, one track at a time. Start with a percussive sound, like a snare (should be a real snare), kik, etc.. acoustic and electric guitar, etc.. see how each parameter affects the sound what each know does. There is NO one-rule, no matter what anyone says. about compression.
