On vocals its trickiest.

I only do it in special circumstances(badly tracked or too thin).

I am very anal when it comes to the mid frequencies in my mixes. Since vocals dominate, really defining the mids in the vocals is my main concern when mixing. Sub-comps that attack the mids is crucial. This also helps you avoid problems with sibilance, since the more you define the mids the less highs you are likely to add.

I never liked compressing bass(unless its a synth bass) and sub-compression can really help define the bottomn without taking away from its strengths.
