Lives for gear

use of compression through the years


It would be a pleasure to get your take on how you (and others) used drum compression/limiting in the 70s and how that changed going into the 80s and beyond. A lot of guys who recorded in the 70s (Alan Parsons, Elliot Scheiner, etc.) say they hardly ever compressed drums, and yet I believe I hear it on a lot of recordings. Thanks for your time.
