really interesting how different people can think of compression. when I started out I thought in terms of attak and release or controlling dynamics. Nowadays I don't remember the last time I thought about a compressor in that way. All I think now: "this sounds like **** but that Daking over there has this solidness that will help this track" or "I need a little more sheen on these acoustics - that MSHol opto comp will take care of it"

So compressors to me are way more important in getting the right tonality than doing some gain raiding. For gain raiding I have some faders ...
