Here for the gear

Ok so compression on the way in, I’ve read that a good place to start is:

1176 with high ratio (10:1) fast attack fast release to catch the highest peaks for 5-6db GR


LA-2A lower ratio (4:1) slow attack medium release for general compression for another 3-4db GR

Is this accurate? If not, can you or someone correct me? I know these settings cannot be cookie cutter and are always subject to change but I am just looking for the general thought process.

Lastly, in both instances am I looking to do makeup gain for the dB I’m reducing through the compression?
